The Worlds Best Snorkeling - Bimini


Just a short trip east of Florida is Bimini, a district of the Bahamas and a longtime favorite snorkeling destination. Although there are plenty of healthy reefs surrounding the Bimini Islands, the main attraction is probably the astounding number of fish. A particularly popular activity is swimming with the friendly and curious dolphins.

"Although only 50 miles from the U.S. mainland, its clear Gulf Stream-fed waters are filled with an incredible diversity of life, and its underwater terrain is as dramatic and varied as any dive destination in the world. [ ] Snorkelers can explore the wreck of the Sapona resting just below the surface, or meander through the vast reef system that surrounds the island and stretches for over 10 miles from the southern shore to Cat Island."
