Paradise Point Snorkeling

The MOST popular snorkel dive spot in Bimini Islands.

Off North Bimini Island, the snorkeling at Paradise Point is especially popular. There are nice rocks to explore about 25 feet off shore. The Paradise Point snorkeling dive is located north of Alice Town and south of the Bimini Road dive site. The Paradise Point site is boat-accessed. It is located about 0.3 from the middle of North Bimini Island. After a hot day of snorkeling at Paradise Point, try checking out The Compleat Angler for a cool drink.

To reach the snorkeling at Bimini Islands, most travelers will fly commercial airlines into Nassau on New Providence or fly into Freeport on Grand Bahama Island. There are regular flights from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, into Bimini Island on Silver Airways (a United Airlines partner). To reach the out islands from Nassau, you can either use Bahamas Air (which is known for late departures) or use the mail boat ferry service (393-1064). While there is a small primative airstrip on the desolate South Bimini Island, most visitors arrive via sea plane to North Bimini Island near Alice Town (Chalk's Seaplane Terminal). Occasionally, there are flights on United/Silver Airways from Ft Lauderdale, Florida, into the Bimini Islands.

Tip: Keep in mind while snorkeling at Paradise Point off the Bimini Islands, the water temperture is known to vary greatly from summer (78F-84F) to winter (68F-76F). Also, you may encounter hammerhead sharks that frequent North Bimini Island from January to March.

Overall, Paradise Point is the 1st most popular snorkel dive spot of all 9 snorkeling dives in Bimini Islands.
