Bimini

Great hammerhead sharks

Where we are diving

In Bimini, colorful coral reefs, sheer walls, shallow wrecks and caverns produce a variety of dive types, including night dives, drift dives, and easy reef dives. But this part of the Bahamas is most famous for its shark dives. Bimini has emerged as one of the best places to encounter one of the ocean’s most amazing predators, the Great Hammerhead Shark. These elusive giants have evaded divers for years, but not now! Bimini Scuba Center was the first and only operator on Bimini to offer this amazing excursion and to learn the secrets of this spectacular experience from the original people who discovered this dive years ago. This trip is the thrill of a lifetime! Aaron Parson is the Trip Leader.
