Scuba Diving in Bimini

Bimini is the closest and most accessible island for diving in The Bahamas

Two dive operations run daily trips to a variety of shallow reefs, a few great shipwrecks, and unusual sites, such as what some believe to be the remains of the Fountain of Youth and the remains of the ancient civilization of Atlantis. Dolphin dives, riding the current over the edge of deep walls, shark dives and more allow visitors to choose from a broad menu of activities. The Sapona sits high and dry in only 15 feet of water, creating a great snorkeling and diving site. Operators also explore the Bimini chain of islands stretching south.
