Long walk to shop & rough boat ride, but that has nothing to do with my rating-- just advising folks what to expect. Our cruise excursion had waaayyy too many people (well over 30) for the crew on ship (I think there were 3.) Once on site, our end of boat was not given clear instructions on how to enter water. I could not find a crew member to ask, so I finally listened to other folks who told me "just jump off the end/side." I later saw there was a ladder instead of jumping down the several foot drop. It's a dangerous site with the rough currents, but I am an experienced SCUBA diver/snorkeling so I enjoyed the swim, and from previous reviews I knew it would be brief. My husband had jumped in but immediately returned to boat, he found water too cold and dark. The boat was not properly anchored and kept drifting into wreck, a tourist was holding it off. When I went to climb back into boat up the ladder, throwing fins up first, there was no staff member to catch my fins. It's a high ladder, so I had to throw them multiple times before they finally stayed, as boat is bobbing wildly in surf. Then I had no assistance to climb up the ladder that was obviously wet, slippery, and has minimal handrails. This place is a disaster waiting to happen. The free Rum punch tasted ok but was a murky brown color. Once we returned, we were given the customary tip speech, all good. Hubby and I always joke to ourselves about tips "haha, don't bet the horses...buy low, sell high" etc but we ALWAYS tip. A crew member overheard our joking around and angrily said to us "I don't need your tips, I make $25 per hour!" We were really taken aback, he was so rude. This was same crew member who was lax in boarding, not holding the steps, and they wobbled when the lady in front of us stepped on them and she tumbled backwards, almost falling and cracking her head open on dock if they hadn't caught her in time. It was very scary to watch. Needless to say, for the 1st time ever we did not tip. We will NEVER use Bimini Blue Adventures and NEVER recommend them to anyone. Their staff is rude, poorly trained, and understaffed.

Had the best tour by Devon and Christie (February 27th, 2023) with a private boat and private visit to Honeymoon Harbour to feed stingray’s and nurse sharks. This was by far the best experience! 
The kids enjoyed every minute. Stingrays and sharks were everywhere and the service was excellent as they went above and beyond! 
Thank you for this family memory!

The water was a little rough that day for snorkling. Just know that this location is subject to the open sea type conditions and unprotected sea waters, so if you are planning to snorkel, you will experience swells and swallow some sea water. It was cool to jump in the ocean though.

Booked a two tank dive with Neal Watson's Bimini SCUBA Center. This is a fun little wreck with lots of life on it. It's a pretty famous/known wreck in Bimini so we had to check it out. It was a great dive.

This was a great experience. The staff, Christie, Terrell and Capt. Jonah were awesome, very professional, friendly and knowledgeable and gave us information and watch us to keep us safe. The snorkeling was awesome, saw fish and 2 stingrays, going in and out of the ship was amazing. Bimini is a BEAUTIFUL place!!

should have dived here . The weather was to bad on 2 occassions to get to the wreck. We dived at the barge 90 feet which was excellent, then turtle rock. Shame we did not get to the wreck but the dive centre focusing on saftey as a priority . The sea was very rough on both days.

This is not your typical wreck dive. My first over/under wreck. Lots of sea life around. Loved it. Highly recommend doing it with Neal Watson.

The Sapona is a must see when diving in Bimini. It is lays at about 15-20 feet of water with fun things to see. I highly recommend going with Neal Watson's for any of your diving and snorkeling.

It is a nice half day activity to snorkel around and inside of the sank ship. It has an amazing story on why it sank and how it was build. On the snorkel I saw rays, variety of colorful fishes. Really recommend it.
