WildQuest has been respectfully connecting with dolphins in the wild since 1995. We offer week-long retreats to swim with wild dolphins in The Bahamas. The WildQuest Retreat Center is situated in a friendly little fishing village, with a bayside terrace and a mooring for our catamaran DolphinQuest. Rooms are on the water and accommodations are light, airy and spacious with private bath and A/C. Food is fresh, healthy and organic where possible, including vegetarian, chicken or fish dishes. Our excellent chef caters to most dietary needs including vegan and gluten free. Each day on our week long retreats, we are scheduled to go out on our 41-foot catamaran DolphinQuest for some snorkeling at coral reefs, visiting the famous Atlantis Stone Road and of course meeting up with playful dolphins. Snorkeling and free diving lessons are included and all levels of aquatic skills are welcome. WildQuest provides a supportive and safe environment, both on the boat and on land for the optimum Human-Dolphin Connection. Other activities on offer are the daily yoga and meditation classes.

WildQuest offers a fantastic opportunity to experience dolphins in their natural environment. The daily trips on the catamaran were very comfortable; the owners and staff are warm and accommodating; the food is healthy and delicious; Bimini is laid back. It was a perfect respite week for me. The one thing I would adjust is to make my stay longer! Thank you WildQuest! Note: see the dolphin baby in this pic!

I just came back last week from two weeks being on Bimini and swimming with wild and free dolphins who decided 9 of 10 days to stay with us and let us swim with them. It was my 5th time and 9 the week there and I will, for sure, be back as soon as I can afford it. The crew is amazing, taking care of each of the guests and trying everything that everybody feels comfortable. The food (thanks again Niketa!!!!) is outstanding and all diets are taking care of. I feel whole and supported and am grateful having been there. Will sure be back and can recommend this to everybody who wants to experience this amazing encounter with wild dolphins and great people.

My wife and I recently gathered a group to join us for our 2nd visit to WildQuest and the dolphin journey each day. It's 5 days of being on the water (you can choose to stay back on land too) in the DolphinQuest catamaran, treated to whatever the weather, the water, and the wild creatures bring us each day. I was impressed yet again by the collective highly skilled teamwork of the WQ staff, supporting everyone in positive ways, whatever any challenge might show up. The result was the full group of us returning each day appearing to me relaxed and fulfilled by the warm air, beautiful water, the brilliant guidance of the staff, the wild playful dolphins, and all the other underwater beauties we got to swim with. WildQuest is so well organized I always felt safe and they are fun as well. They have great skills at finding whatever we're looking for that day, plus helped us improve our snorkeling and diving skills. Ok, then there's the food! Breakfasts are plentiful and varied, we pack a healthy simple lunch for the boat each day, and then return to a gourmet dinner prepared by the chef - I couldn't ask for better food. Rooms are as they say, airy and spacious, if simple. While this is not a 5-star hotel, everything is super well taken care of and clean. Just remember you're staying at the edge of a harbor and docking area on the tiny island of Bimini, with sea birds and fish right out your door - this is not an upscale resort hotel. You will be close to the wild resource of nature.

I experienced this life changing trip with a spiritual leadership group. This adventure was significantly bonding for all of us and the dolphins taught us many life lessons as to how to communicate, play and commune together. The moment we arrived we were warmly greeted, and the team members made us feel like we was part of their family. Everything was top notch from the simple accommodations, to the nourishing homemade food, to the dolphin adventures on the boat. Every detail was handled with love, care and professionalism. Every staff member is completely committed to making your experience the best. I have a new found appreciation for the ocean and the magnificent dolphins and was sad to leave but I will definitely be coming back. It's worth every penny!

This was on my bucket list… finally fulfilled and such a joy. How do I begin to describe… This journey was filled with wonder, quiet bubbly excitement, joy, a reverence for this watery life and what I experienced, playfulness, relaxation, amazing meals, beautiful accommodation and the most wonderful, caring crew one could wish for. I was more than impressed. It was so well organised, it was seamless. As I had experience working in the Great Barrier Reef tourism industry, I knew exactly how much went into each detail, how much care was taken with each meal, the vessel, our rooms, the friendliness and caring of each staff member. And... total respect for our dolphin friends and marine life. It is exquisite. A deep and life-changing adventure not to be missed. I am going back… it is back on my bucket list. Sophie R

I was on a trip with WildQuest three years ago. COVID interrupted my determination to return every year after that amazing week. I returned June 26th to July 3rd 2022, and found that the miracle of that experience was repeated and even improved upon. We had an amazingly kind and knowledgeable staff that looked after our every need. This experience was difficult to be critical of IN ANY WAY. The program was outstanding. The beds were comfortable, the AC worked, the meals were the best I've had on any vacation. Fresh fruits & salads were provided at every meal. Our chef made sure the delicious meals would provide for the varied dietary needs of our group. Nightly meals were provided with outstanding presentation--not your normal camp food! Quality and quantity was satisfying to everyone in our group. The boat crew gave the less experienced swimmers and snorkelers gentle help and increased their confidence so that they could successfully swim in the ocean AND snorkel with the dolphins. The pristine water clarity of 30-40 feet enabled us to see dolphins and other ocean life easily even if you only snorkeled on the surface. Many in our group practiced optional yoga and meditation during mornings and evenings. There were expert massages available for an additional fee before breakfast. The people of Bikini were friendly and welcoming. Little stores with basic needs were within a short walk of our facility. --continued...

There is nothing so magical as floating in the open ocean and having a wild dolphin swim right up and look you in the eyes, just an arms length away. So incredible. I visited WildQuest in June for the fourth time and it just gets better and better. We swam with dolphins every day. Sometimes a sweet group of five, and sometimes larger pods of 13 - 20 dolphins. The crew is so respectful of the dolphins and really helps to make sure that everyone is safe and comfortable in the water. Some folks were expert snorkelers and free divers, and some folks were not such good swimmers so they got a lot of help. Everyone is welcome! This year the food cooked for us each day by on-site chef, Niketa, was incredible. All homemade from scratch with lots of delicious options for vegans, vegetarian and gluten free folks. I can't wait to go back again next year!

The WildQuest retreat on Bimini changed the trajectory of my life. Simply being in the water and being with the dolphins was healing and food for my soul. The WildQuest staff is truly amazing, attentive to each person’s needs and taught us how to be with the dolphins. Swimming with dolphins, snorkeling 3 Sisters, near Shell Beach and along Bimini Road was beautiful, easy and so much fun. The dolphins know the staff and were excited to play with us in the water. Each day aboard the catamaran was an adventure and like living a dream. The food during the week was delicious. The accommodations were comfortable. The views were spectacular. I look forward to being back.
