About

#1 of 5 Specialty lodging in Bimini
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.

I've always loved the idea of swimming with dolphins, but felt that it was cruel to keep dolphins in captivity. WildQuest deeply believes that these animals are very special creatures and show them love and respect. The team at WildQuest shared information about the dolphins and their philosophy, but it was apparent that this was not a job for these people. It was a way of life. They had such a kind, welcoming and grateful energy. You were immediately at ease in their presence and felt their genuine happiness and pleasure for each new day. They are a remarkable group of people who cared took care of everyone's individual needs. Swimming with the dolphin was such an enlightening experience and because they were free, it meant so much more. This trip attracts like minded people who all seemed to feel gratitude and something sort of mystical after each encounter. We quickly and easily forget any stresses of the "real world " and expressed the idea of feeling forever changed. The trip ended all too soon, though Enlightened feeling and memories are with me still.I hope to hold on to this feeling as long as I can or at least until I can return!

This was literally the most amazing experience of my life. The people here are really doing it right. All of our interactions with the dolphins were respectful and peaceful. We got plenty of instructions and reminders on how to interact with them so that they would want to stay. We often hung with a group, slowly moving the boat around, until the director/captain/crew felt the dolphins were definitely interested in interaction . And they really were. The dolphins stuck around, day after day, accepting and welcoming us into their world Crew members helped me learn to freedive in a way the dolphins would respond well to and that allowed me to have amazing interactions with them. I also loved that they modified the type of swimming etc. we did to the abilities of the group on the boat. No one was EVER left out due to a lack of swimming ability or comfort in the water. The staff was super helpful, kind, friendly and giving. The food was healthy, delicious and abundant. You really felt safe to totally relax and be yourself. They also have the most incredible massage therapist you can get sessions with . Accomodations were perfect for a trip like this . You really arent going to spend much time in there unless you are sleeping or showering. Its comfortable with everything you need and nothing you dont. It really creates a nice haven from noise, electronics, distraction etc so you can focus on being fully present. There is a real atmosphere of peace, gratitude ,openness and love I would recommend WildQuest to anyone. Whatever you are trying to find- amazing wild animals,adventure, tranquility, even if you are trying to find yourself, you can find it at WildQuest.

WildQuest is that Magical place that thinks of your every need( Those that you really need) I can't say enough about the WildQuest family and their dedication to safety,fun, awesome food, clean accomodations, thorough instructions and did I mention their relationships with the Dolphins that live around Bimini!!!? Such love and mutual respect. My week there was such a gift. I went alone and made friends from all over the world. I'm already planning my next trip back!!! I miss our dancing parties heading back after a wonderful day of swimming with the dolphins and rays and the yummy snacks on board. Those relaxing naps on the bow of the boat.... I could go on and on. And the kind people of Bimimi. They are so welcoming. Thank You. Lisa Hall

The experience of sailing with WQ to find a dolphin pod and then actually joining the pod in Bimini’s stunning clear water was incredible and I believe a special gift to both humans and dolphins in the considerate and conscientious manner in which the entire WQ crew facilitates the connection in the water between themselves, their guests and the dolphins. Majestic and beautiful the dolphins exuded an emotional sensitivity and intelligence that was evident as I observed them together and looked into their soulful eyes. This encounter left an indelible impression of love on me and I am grateful for the experience with the dolphins and the WQ crew who were kind, experienced, and attentive throughout a fantastic voyage.

This was our 2nd time traveling on a sacred journey with Robbyne LaPlant to WildQuest on Bimini. It's hard to imagine anything more powerful than our first experience, but this trip was beyond what we could have imagined. I have so much gratitude for the WildQuest group in providing such a welcoming environment! And the dolphins; they were just as delighted to see us as we were to see them! It's fantastic and also humbling to be sought out by these wild and free agents. For 5 days we played and communed with our cetacean friends in the beautiful blue waters. My heart was opened in profound ways. I am forever changed.
