Bimini Wild Dolphin Swim 2018
Return to Home Page

    I cannot begin to describe the thrill and delight of swimming with wild dolphins. Spending time with these intelligent, joyful,
    playful creatures reminds us how to relax into the moment, open up a new creative outlet and reconnect with a sense of joy and
    love that many of us have lost. Changing times and challenges in our world today can leave us feeling stressed and anxious about
    the future. Yes we are shifting into a new time and a new reality, and the transition process can be exhausting on all levels. The
    dolphins are wise and powerful teachers. As they swim close to us and make eye contact while scanning us with their sonar and
    bombarding us with their clicks, chirps and whistles, many people experience a profound sense of peace and healing. Being in the
    presence of dolphins will rest our mind, relax our body and restore our spirit.

To spend time with these exquisite creatures in the wild is to set your spirit free! Experience the human dolphin connection in consciousness on this wild dolphin swim /
mini-workshop wellness retreat. Our main facilitators will be the dolphins themselves as they open people’s hearts and connect us on a very deep level to our own divine
essence. After the dolphins have worked their magic on us we'll share fun and enlightening group experiences and discussions, guided meditations to work with the dolphin
energy and practice stress relieving techniques and exercises that can open a doorway to personal self-discovery that supports releasing fear and negativity.
By the end of this wild dolphin swim workshop you will have given yourself the gift of.....

    Day 1 July 15: Fly from Ft. Lauderdale to Bimini, Bahamas on Silver Airways 3:55 pm flight. (Details on

    rest of the group. There will be a trip briefing and dolphin protocol orientation by our Charter boat Captain
    and you will get fitted for your snorkel gear. Then enjoy a delicious dinner prepared by our “personal chef”
    and enjoy your first night in Bimini.

    Day 2 July 16: Our first day in Bimini begins with a very special intimate encounter with the stingrays of
    Honeymoon Harbour at 9 am. Have no fear for the stingrays are very docile, calm and friendly sea creatures
    and seem to enjoy you touching them to feel their silvery, smooth skin. They hang out in this peaceful bay
    and love taking fishy treats out of your hands. You are sitting or standing in shallow water and the stingrays
    come to you, swim around you or just rest on the sand at your feet. This began years ago when the local
    fisherman stopped in the bay to clean their catch and throw the discarded fish parts overboard. Stingrays
    being very smart, wise creatures, quickly figured out this was the place to be for dinner and Honeymoon
    Harbour has become their home-based waters. The stingray energy will help ground and center you
    emotionally before your first wild dolphin excursion in the afternoon. You will have time to enjoy and
    practice snorkeling in these crystal clear waters to get ready to play with the Bimini dolphins.

    Day 3, 4, 5 July 17, 18, 19. Tues to Thursday. B,L,D included. We spend the next four days
    exploring the island in the mornings and playing off our boat in the afternoon with the dolphins and
    snorkeling. Our time with these wild dolphins is a gift from them and will evolve as they wish. This is an
    ecologically sensitive program that allows us to observe, interact with, and swim with these beautiful
    beings. The photo and video opportunities area absolutely outstanding. Our dolphin excursions take place
    each afternoon and trips can be anywhere from 3 to 4 hours in length. It takes approximately one hour to
    reach the dolphin grounds. Please remember these are wild dolphins so encounters cannot be guaranteed.
    We are on the dolphins time schedule, so when or if they come to play with us is their decision. One of the
    powerful lessons they teach us is about letting go of control, relaxing and just being in the moment.
    Encounters can be as short as 15 minutes or as long as an hour and you might have multiple encounters in
    one afternoon. Those magical Bimini dolphins  are full of surprises!

    No trip to Bimini would be complete without snorkeling over Mysterious Bimini Road! A quarter-mile off
    Paradise Point lays an ancient, underwater road of stones that has baffled natives, mystics and
    scientists for generations. Some call it the Bimini Road or the Atlantis Wall and believe it may
    lead to the lost continent of Atlantis. It is quite a mystical experience and many say they can feel
    the energy that emanates from these huge underwater stones.There will be time to explore the
    island, relax on the beach and of course do some shopping! You may also choose from other
    optional island activities, bike rentals or golf carts, mangrove tours, a visit to the Healing Hole or
    the Fountain of Youth. As we bring to a close a wonderful week of fun, sun and sharing time with
    new flippered friends, human and dolphin, you'll leave Bimini feeling refreshed and restored on
    all levels.

    Day 6 Friday July 20. B included. After breakfast we leave for the Bimini airport for our flight back to Ft
    Lauderdale and our connecting flights home. We leave with our spirits renewed and our hearts full
    of dolphin love. New and lasting friendships have been made and you will find the dolphin
    energy and consciousness swimming in and out of your life forever!They truly are the Angels of
    the Sea!
