“A Dream Come True!”
Reviewed June 14, 2011

It had been a long time dream of mine to swim with dolphins in the wild. I had one of the most profound experiences of my life! Not only is there something truly amazing about making eye contact with dolphins in the warm, clear waters of Bimini, but the whole combination of practicing yoga, meditation, healthy eating with it is truly extraordinary. The staff are welcoming, kind, compassionate leaders who demonstrate such a love and respect for dolphins and the people visiting the retreat, encouraging us to see how and why they've devoted their life to this work. I am returning again this year and intend to return every year. This is truly an experience that has the power to change your life! If you feel a calling towards going.... I say GO!!!!

Stayed July 2010, traveled solo

Open ocean and dolphins. Coral reefs and ocean life painted with all colors of rainbow. Vast spaceness of blue waters. Quiet and joyfull connection with the nature that is relaxing to the soul. This is what you will find on your trip to Bimini Islands with WildQuest.
You will also find courteous and extremly friendly service and other like-minded people and share with them unforgettable moments of enjoying an ocean and swimming with the people of the sea - dolphins!
Note:
For those who is looking for mindless lying in the beach, all-you-can eat and nightlife, this trip is not for you.

We were invited to a week with WildQuest by a friend who hosted a healing program here. It was beyond amazing. Amla and Atmo and the WildQuest family are wonderful hosts. The food is simple but delicious. The days spend on the roomy and comfortable boat were filled with learning about the local environment and the marine wildlife, snorkeling, and of course, swimming with wild dolphins. One of the things I love most about WildQuest is the respect they have for the wild dolphins. We did not lure them or tempt them with any tricks. If we encountered them, we gently got in the water, and if they wanted to stay and play with us, we were delighted. And most often, they did! It was pure magic. If you have the opportunity, go!!!

My two weeks stay with WildQuest was the best I could have done for relaxing and having a time-out of my stressful job.
The rooms are very clean, comfortable, with a lot of loving details. The whole place is very well looked after. The money for the single-room and Seaview upgrade is worth it.
The food is delicious, everyone finds something he/she likes.
The staff turns from staff to friends, competent, helpful, making you feel welcome and safe.
It's very nice to be in the group, meet new people, join in different activities. But you have also time for yourself. In Bimini you don't have to do anything, time slows down and the world gets more colourful.
A perfect decision was to sign in for massage sessions. They are really great!
The island is small, but very nice and the people are always friendly and smiling. The Sea is shining in the most beautiful colours and you will always find a white beach without tourists.
The experiences you get being on the boat, snorkeling, swimming with the dolphins is really beyond words.... And you can always relax, because Amlas, Atmo and their team make sure you are safe.
A friend of mine told me to go and it was the best recommondation I ever got. Don't go to WildQuest if you are looking for party, noise, loud action.

I was left with the feeling that this was an orgainisation who looked after their clientele with loving service. I felt nutured from start to finnish. They were so well orgainised. Simple but adequate lodgings, delicious healthy food. Wonderful programmes to start the day. They truly respected the dolphins and the sea life. I felt safe in the open sea with the crew. Very comfortable trimaran. This a a place to truly focus on ones innerself AND get to swim with wild dolphins

If your looking for a life changing experience, this is the place. Swimming with dophins is beyond words but to do it with a "pod" of humans is even more special. Amlas and Atmos have a jewel that they are willing to share. The entire staff is so special and really take care of you and become like family. If you want to be waited on and boss people around and have a full service bar or spa, this is not the trip for you. if you want to feel connection, peace and love this is it. The accommodations were simple, clean, comfortable. The food is healthy and homemade. The staff are absolutely amazing, generous and with open hearts. Being on a boat for many hours was not something I had done before and the staff was helpful and patient. The captains made sure everyone was safe. Time for yoga and meditations. This trip leaves along lasting effect of peace, lightness and calm. Can't wait to return .
