A quick glimpse at some of the wildlife you can encounter around Bimini, Bahamas. From endangered sawfish to endemic snake species, Bimini is a little island that offers big adventures.

A few short clips of the Cat Island Boa (Epicrates striatus ailurus) taken in 2012. All of the Bahamian Boas are completely harmless snakes, regardless of some of the exaggerated stories that exist about them around the islands. They are excellent rodent catchers, and play an important role in keeping the pest populations in check throughout the Bahamas. As nocturnal hunters, the Bahamian boas are rarely seen during the day. They are non-venomous, and extremely docile snakes. Please respect, and help protect the beautiful and unique wildlife of the Bahamas. Song Credit: "Oh, Baby, Lick it Up" by Alan Lomax

Fast forward to the early 1920s when tourism began to boom and many islanders began moving to Nassau for work. One of these migrants was the brothers grandfather, a former captain of the Duke of Windsor. He got his grandchildren involved in the business and sparked their love for the water. Now, the brothers own the popular and secluded hotel club here that attracts tourists looking for a cultural Bahamas escape. Hop aboard their boat as they demons...
On one summer day while snorkeling on the reef in the Bahamas a pod of atlantic bottle nose dolphin swam up and decided to join us for well over an hour. While there have been numerous occasions when these mammals have interacted with us over the years this instance was most special because of the connection between my young niece and the mother dolphin as you will see in the footage.. This is a compilation of highlights from the lengthy footage we compiled..
