It's been over 8 years but venturetrek is planning to head back to one of our old stomping grounds - Bimini, Bahamas.

Located just 47 nautical miles off Florida’s coast, Bimini is the closest Bahamian island to the United States, with miles of pristine beaches and crystal clear warm waters. Known as one of Ernest Hemingway’s favorite escapes, Bimini is historically significant. Visitors from around the world enjoy its historical complexity and renowned past, including Bimini Road, which some believe is a remnant of the legendary Lost City of Atlantis.

Bimini island is often referred to as the "Island in the Stream", only a few hundred yards from the Continental Shelf in some areas. The Grand Bahama Bank runs 200+ miles on it's eastern shores giving a gateway to large dolphin pods. The Gulf Stream runs northerly and practically rides on top of the island, bringing warm crystal clear ~ nutrient rich waters that feed the coral reefs and invites a plethora of wildlife to its shores.

The diving in Bimini is popular with macro photographers and especially with wide-angle enthusisits who want some big boy action. Pelagics are plentiful and at any given day you can encounter everything from sharks, groupers, eels, marlin, mantas, dolphins and sea turtles. Its unique location coupled with a roguish history makes Bimini a favorite diving and fishing location.
