Swimming with Dolphins in Bimini, Bahamas | Away from the Crowds

by Joe Noonan on June 11, 2017

I love Bimini, I think it’s the best places in the world to go swimming with dolphins. Let’s face it, if you’re gonna travel somewhere to go swimming with dolphins, wouldn’t you want it to be in a beautiful warm, clean ocean with some of the most playful dolphins in the world?

The spotted dolphins of Bimini are incredibly social and interactive. Because I focus on small group trips, we get to be in the water with them for extended lengths of time. You get to swim and play with the same dolphins over a longer span of time, something not available if you’re with a group of 10, 15 or 20 other people. The photo below is of six juvenile spotted dolphins who, in the middle of a two hour swim with them, all came over to scan Ben at the same time.

The dolphins will frequently play seaweed tag with us. One of the things I love about these encounters is how long the game can last. This is a direct result of a low human-to-dolphin ratio.

I’ve been bringing small groups and families to swim with the dolphins in Bimini for over 20 years. I’ve fallen in love with Bimini, and have been living here for over 15 years. After having swum with wild dolphins around the globe, I think the encounters we have here are literally the best in the world.

Check out this fun game of seaweed tag with a pod of young dolphins in Bimini. We passed the seaweed back multiple times…

If you are curious or have questions about my custom trips, please give me a call. I look forward to talking with you!

Joe, Do you have any group trips planned that an individual could join? I would like to do a trip to Bimini to be with the dolphins, but am an individual, so would have to hook up with a group.

Looking at this spring.
