The Strip Snorkeling

The 8th most popular snorkel dive spot in Bimini Islands.

Off the west side of North Bimini Island, the snorkeling at The Strip is known for its diverse marine life. The Strip snorkeling is a boat accessed dive site in 30 foot deep water with 50 foot visibility. The narrow strip reef is about 20 feet wide by 600 feet long. While snorkeling the Strip, you may encounter grunts, black margatics, squirrelfish, grey angelfish, nurse sharks and green moray eels. The Strip is located just north of Alice Town and is accessible by boat. It is located about 1.1 miles west-southwest of Pigeon Cay. After a hot day of snorkeling at The Strip, 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 The Strip off 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, The Strip is the 8th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 9 snorkeling dives in Bimini Islands.
