Bimini Wild Dolphin Swim 201
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 a wild dolphin swim retreat you will have given yourself the gift of.....

                                          Daily Wild Dolphin Swim Retreat Itinerary:

Day 1 Sat. Depart from your home city to Ft. Lauderdale, FL. You will most likely need to overnight in Ft. Lauderdale
in order to take the morning flight on Silver Airways to Bimini, Bahamas. Your dolphin retreat program officially begins on Sunday at lunch.  Hotel cost for overnight in
FLL is not included in the trip package.

Day 2 Sun. L,D included. Morning flight to Bimini and transfer to Sea Crest Hotel and Marina.
Mid morning we'll have a trip briefing and dolphin protocol orientation by our Charter boat Captain.
After a delicious lunch we board our chartered boat and prepare for our first encounter with the
magical spotted dolphins of Bimini.

    Day 3 -6. Mon 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 7 Friday. 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!
