Questions About Shark Cage Diving on Bimini
Where is Bimini?
Bimini is a tropical paradise just 50 miles east of Miami/Ft Lauderdale. Bimini actually consists of two islands: North Bimini and South Bimini. A water taxi provides transportation between the two islands.
What is the cost?
Cage divers pay $875 per person and topside observers pay $375 per person. Call for private charter/group pricing.
When is shark season in Bimini? Shark diving is great all year long in Bimini, but if you hope to see great hammerhead sharks, the best months to dive are December to April.
How can I get to Bimini?
You can get to Bimini by commercial airline, or by taking a ferry, private boat, helicopter or seaplane from South Florida. We’ll be happy to help you arrange transportation to Bimini. If you decide to take a ferry from Miami, the trip takes about two hours.
Most visitors arrive by commercial airline through Fort Lauderdale International Airport (FLL) or via the larger Bahamian airports; i.e. Nassau (NAS) or Freeport (FPO).

I am going to be staying at Atlantis. Is there any way I can still shark dive?
Yes! Although Atlantis is on a different island in the Bahamas, daily flights are offered between Nassau and Bimini aboard Western Air.
Where do we board the shark boat? Trips depart from Bimini Big Game Club Resort and Marina in Alice Town, on North Bimini. The airport is on the island of South Bimini. If you are arriving by air, here is what you will need to do: After clearing customs and immigration at Bimini International Airport (located on South Bimini), you will take a short taxi ride (approx. 10 minutes long) to the South Bimini Ferry Dock. You will then take a short ferry ride to North Bimini. Once on North Bimini, you may either walk to Bimini Big Game Club (approx. a 10 minute walk) or take a taxi. Taxis are readily available and there is no need to book ahead of time. Depending on availability and time of day, your ferry captain may be able to drop you off directly at Bimini Big Game Club for a small additional fee.
Are shark sightings guaranteed?
No, but the odds of seeing sharks in the Bahamas are very good. If you don't see sharks, there is no refund. We cannot control nature, but we can promise you that we'll take you to the best possible locations for viewing sharks and do everything in our power to make sure you have an incredible adventure in the Bahamas.
Do I need a valid passport to travel to the Bahamas?
Yes, a valid passport is required.
What equipment do I need to provide for a shark dive? You will need to supply your own snorkel mask and towel and provide proof of insurance. Depending on the time of year, you may wish to bring a 3 mil wetsuit.
Is there a minimum age to get in the cage?
No, but cage divers must be old enough to understand and follow safety instructions. Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a parent, grandparent or guardian. The final decision as to who can get in the cage is made the day of the trip by the dive instructor or dive master in charge and may be based on sea conditions and the type of sharks present. Younger children can observe sharks from the deck of our glass bottom dive boat.
What happens if there is bad weather on my dive day?
If the captain is forced to cancel your trip due to weather, there is no refund. You will be given the option of rescheduling for a future date, or filing a travel insurance claim. The purchase of travel/trip cancellation insurance is mandatory.
Where should I stay on Bimini? We recommend staying at the Bimini Big Game Resort and can help reserve a room for you.
