Meet my boat the ‘Dolphin Whisperer’

I love my boat and so will you. Its a lot of fun, a magic carpet ride to all kinds of ocean adventures. Its a Twin Vee power catamaran, a fast, stable boat and she carries one to six/seven passengers. Suitable for people of all ages, it offers easy water entry and is ideal for snorkeling, relaxing, freediving, spearfishing and the most ideal dolphin swims.

It is a fantastic boat for getting easily in and out of the water. It has a low gunnel for slipping effortlessly over the side and a split-step stainless-steel ladder for getting back in. Watching the dolphins from the bow is spectacular, the dolphins love to ride the bow and are inches away from you. Its not uncommon to get wet from their antics!

These seven German women couldn’t get enough of the dolphins!

The boat’s 175 horsepower 4 stroke motor ensures that we can get out to the dolphin grounds quickly and easily. A power catamaran, the boat’s twin hulls ensure a much more stable, even ride.

The dolphins of Bimini are very familiar with this boat, having swum alongside it for years. It is an ideal boat for staying with the pod, its smaller size makes it very maneuverable and is less of an interruption or influence to their behavior.

When the dolphins are in a quiet mood, moving slowly and resting, we match them by keeping the motor just above idle and moving slowly. As a result, the dolphins love to come alongside and swim beside us, even when they’re sleeping. When they’re in this mode, we move slowly and quietly on the boat, matching their mood and behavior. It is very relaxing to hang right next to the pod as they’re resting, occasionally rolling onto their side to look you in the eye.

The dolphins love to play on the bow and making eye contact

When they wake and desire to swim with you, we slip on our snorkel gear and enter the water, joining them in their world, on their terms. The quality of interaction we get with them, in part from our small group size, makes your swim with the dolphins from the ‘Dolphin Whisperer’ the most intimate, playful and connected available.

I welcome the opportunity to be your guide in exploring the beauty of Bimini’s waters and swimming with the dolphins. If you are a non-swimmer, or have some fear or hesitation about coming out on a boat or being in the sea, I have lots of floatation and experience in helping you feel comfortable, so that you may have the time of your life here. If you have any questions about the boat, or about what a trip in general might be like, call me. I look forward to speaking with you!
