Bimini – The Bimini Island Scavenger HuntPut your teamwork and collective creativity to the test while exploring historic sites, gathering “rare artifacts,” and discovering the best that the tropical island of North Bimini has to offer with our Bimini Island Scavenger Hunt. This hunt is just the thing to bring your group together in a fun and thrilling way. Our Emcee outlines the rules and distributes all the materials needed. Then teams of four on a fleet of island golf carts will gather at the starting line.
Teams must work together to find specific places and objects within the designated search area. Teams will also be challenged with riddles, asked to perform physical feats, and more! Points are awarded for each object found and extra credit points are awarded for creativity in some of the challenges. The team to return to the designated finish area on time with the most points will win. This event will leave your guests laughing and reminiscing for years to come.
Bimini – Exploring the Wreck Sapona – A Bimini Snorkeling AdventureTravel to the mystical SS Sapona, located just three miles south of Bimini, where it ran aground more than 80 years ago.
Built in 1904, the Sapona was a 270-foot vessel used as a rum-runner between the Bahamas and Florida during Prohibition, until it sank during the hurricane of 1926.
Perfect for snorkeling -- as more than half of the ship is visible above water -- the Sapona is riddled with unusual holes and portholes to explore, thanks to its use as target practice during World War II.
Let your imagination run wild as you swim and snorkel through this legendary vessel, which now serves as a home to vibrant tropical fish and sea creatures.
Bimini – A Royal Bimini Bike Tour – Exploring the Highways of Kings and QueensSpend the day exploring North Bimini on bike, and get to know the unique offerings of a quaint Bahamian island village.
As we traverse the island on the King’s Highway we’ll stop at a beautiful spot on the southerly reach of the island where white sand and food shacks compete for our attention with breathtaking vistas.
Not to be outdone by the King, we’ll switch our allegiance to the Queen (the Queen’s Highway that is) on the high end of the island as we pedal back to our resort home, but not before stopping for some of that world-famous Bimini bread at a nearby home/bakery and a visit to the Bimini Museum.
Freeport Grand Bahama – Bahamas Island Culture TourWalking through the colorful local fruit and fish market, we introduce you to some old friends who envelope you in the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the native Bahamian culture. Discover the proper way to prepare a live conch, watch a master create symbols of Bahamian life from rods of glass, contemplate a purchase of hand-made candy, make a visit to the doctor (the bush doctor that is) and see what remedies he has prepared for you. Spend time meeting and sharing a few laughs with the locals. That’s what travel is about, isn’t it?
Freeport, Grand Bahama – Bahamian Stories on LocationThe tradition of storytelling is alive and well in the Bahamas. Centuries of history and local lore are spun into attention-grabbing narratives by some of the island nation’s most compelling wordsmiths in this roving salute to authentic cultural tourism.
Since antiquity it has been the ancient human art of storytelling that has conveyed information across generations and centuries. Now, as you gather at several of our unique and charming settings, the collective wisdom of our local hosts will be yours to share and relive. So, whether on a cottage porch or an ideal overlook to the sea, our “Stories on Location” will stay with you long after you have departed from our island home.
Freeport, Grand Bahama – Studying the Queen Conch” The Intersection of Food and CultureThe regal Queen Conch, a delectable sea creature with an ornate deep-pink accented shell is embedded in the national psyche of the Bahamas. Islanders crack them, season them, cook them, serve them to friends, family and visitors alike and then mound the shells in giant, scenic piles around the island.
Jump onboard with us as we sail and then snorkel through the pristine waters that serve as home for local conch. Our guides elaborate on the powerful historical, cultural, and ecological significance of this invertebrate to the Bahamian life. Then, we dock at a handcrafted beachfront conch shack to experience first hand how the conch is extracted from its shell, prepared, and eaten. Throughout this journey we explore a collection of scientific data, opinions, and first-hand experiences covering all angles regarding the health and future of this legendary fishery.
Nassau – Clifton Heritage National Park Nature and History HikeFor those who desire to hike through the natural splendor of a tropical island national park, our “Clifton Heritage National Park Nature and History Hike” leads you on a journey that hugs the sea and explores the coastal beauty of Western New Providence Island. Intermingled with the native flora and fauna are the ruins of several colonial era grand plantations and the accompanying slave houses and manor ruins.
Our trek includes breathtaking views of aquamarine waters and the pounding surf against rock outcroppings. See restored wetlands and a beautiful promontory ledge high above the sea. Explore a carved staircase leading from the water’s edge that could have been taken right from a pirate movie of old.
After a great day’s hike, a fine evening dinner can be well justified…
