Rest your Mind       Relax your Body       Restore your Spirit

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.....

                                                           Retreat Itinerary:

NOTE: Sat July 14: Arrive in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and overnight on Sat. in order to connect with your flight to Bimini, Bahamas Sunday morning.  The suggested hotel is
the Courtyard Marriott, Ft Lauderdale Airport and Cruise Hotel, 400 Gulf Stream Way, Dania Beach FL You are responsible for booking your own room reservation which
is not included in the retreat cost.
  Free shuttle from the airport. When you arrive call the hotel: 954-342-8333


    Day 1: Fly from Ft. Lauderdale to Bimini, Bahamas. Check into the Sea Crest Hotel Marina and meet with
    the rest of the group for your trip briefing and dolphin protocol orientation by our Charter boat Captain. You
    will get fitted for your snorkel gear and then enjoy a delicious lunch prepared by our “personal chef”.
    Afterward board your chartered boat and head for the dolphin grounds out near the Gulf Stream about an
    hour away for your first introduction to the Bimini Wild Dolphins

    Day 2: Day 2, 3, 4 and 5. (Monday to Thursday)  B,L,D included. We spend the next four days with
    group workshop time in the mornings or exploring the small island of Bimini in gold carts 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 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!
