TYPES OF DIVES

Best known for the endless visibility – thanks to the white sand and bright sun – the area of the Bahamas we dive is located close to the nutrient-rich currents of the Gulf Stream, which helps to feed the coral and keep the reefs healthy. These reefs are some of the most resilient around – they recover from storms quickly, and can survive a larger range of conditions than most other corals. They provide beautiful, safe shelters for a huge diversity of fish. Bimini is the only area of the Bahamas that can claim the combination of  mangroves providing a safe, shallow ecosystem for juveniles of every species to thrive in, and the Gulf Stream-fed reefs to give them a rich and healthy environment to live in as adults.

On the edge of the Gulf Stream are beautiful awe-inspiring walls, some starting at only 35′ (11m), some at 80′ (24m), offering dramatic drift dives when the current is running. Closer to shore are shallower patch reefs, some with heads 15′ (5m) tall and loaded with swim-throughs. There is no shortage of wrecks either. Some of our favorites are: the Sapona – half in, half out of the water and surrounded with fish; the Hesperus Wreck with thick schools of fish and huge Loggerhead Turtles that bed down here at night; and the Bimini Barge, where you never know what might swim in from the Gulf Stream; schools of Mahi-mahi, dolphins, once even a humpback whale was seen here!

Don’t forget about the sharks! The Bahamas –  Bimini in particular – is famous for its sharks. Look in the Paul Humann fish ID book, almost all the pictures of sharks were taken right here in Bimini. Typically you’ll see Caribbean Reef Sharks and Nurse Sharks, but its not uncommon to see Great Hammerheads, Blacktips, and Bull Sharks. We’ve even spotted a Sawfish!

Most trips offer 4 dives per day – three day dives and one night dive – each day of the trip except the final dive day when there are only day dives, no night dive.
