Get ready for a very special adventure! There are two species of dolphins that inhabit the beautiful waters of Bimini – the Atlantic Spotted Dolphin, and the Bottlenose Dolphin, with excellent chances of encountering both species. The pods here share a very unique behavior that is only seen in a few places on earth. They actually seek out interactions with humans. You’ll feel like you’re living in a wildlife documentary, as we head out each day to swim with wild dolphins and explore their world.
For this special trip we’ll be sending our very own Jay Clue, award winning underwater photographer & conservationist, to show you the best of Bimini. Jay will be teaming up with environmental scientist Kelly Melillo Sweeting, that has been working with the dolphins in Bimini for over 18 years! She will be joining us throughout the week to teach us a bit about these incredible creatures as well as the amazing research she has been working on with the dolphins in Bimini.
Our expedition will begin in Bimini, the Bahamas. We’ll have a relaxing first day for all guests to arrive, check in, and chill out. Then a presentation by Jay Clue & the team in the evening introducing us to these amazing creatures and what’s in store for the week. The next day, we’ll head out on our first dolphin expedition after lunch, looking for those amazing encounters! This will be repeated for the next few days, with a total of 4 afternoons in the water with dolphins, so you can get as much time as possible with our new underwater friends.
Dolphins are most active in the afternoon, so our dolphin expedition will make the most of this. But not to worry, we also have morning activities planned! There will be a morning of snorkeling & freediving with Caribbean reef sharks, and another morning of snorkeling & freediving at a local wreck & reef before heading out in search of more dolphin action. There will also be talks and presentations throughout the week led by Kelly & Jay Clue! As well as the option to take photo workshops to bring home some awesome memories. Alternatively, you may choose to take the morning off to explore the beautiful local beaches, or relax by the pool.
While out on the ocean we’ll also be looking for the numerous other species that call this area home such as eagle rays, multiple species of sharks, and many more.
