Ernest Hemingway may be long gone from his Bimini haunts, but the sharks that so infuriated and fascinated him remain. Tiger sharks are common in and around the shallow waters off Bimini, reaching lengths in excess of 20-feet. Throw in hammerheads and a variety of reef sharks, and you have a Shark Encounter to be remembered.
Neal Watson, known for his superhuman record breaking scuba records, operates Neal Watson’s Dive Bimini, a Big Game Club Dive Center featuring Bimini Blue, the largest, glass bottom recreational dive boat in the Bahamas.
“Bimini has no shortage of great dive sites: Reefs, Wrecks, Walls, Drift Dives, our famous Atlantis Road, a truly amazing Wild Dolphin Encounter and of course Sharks – you name it,” said Watson.
On South Bimini, guests can visit the world-famous Bimini Biological Station, Shark Lab owned and operated by shark biologist Dr. Samuel Gruber. The “Shark Lab” offers internships to people interested in shark research and conservation.
