Great Hammerhead Expedition
February 12 – 18, 2017
Bimini is now world renowned for encounters with great hammerhead sharks. During the winter months, January through March, a healthy population of these elusive sharks congregate around the island’s waters. With numerous species of shark frequenting this area, you have opportunities to see Caribbean reef sharks, nurse sharks, bull sharks, and, of course, great hammerheads. Thanks to the foresight of the Bahamas, which made all waters surrounding its islands a marine sanctuary, we are able to enjoy the benefits of a healthy marine ecosystem.
Besides great hammerhead shark diving, Bimini offers a variety of other prime diving opportunities, including several wrecks and a great location for diving with stingrays.
Bimini is easily accessible from the US, and most travelers with fly in through Florida. It’s just a quick 45-minute flight from most points in Florida, including Ft. Lauderdale and Miami.
