Great Hammerhead Safari Itinerary
Daily space is limited to 14 lucky guests who will experience these elusive giants up close! Exact departure and arrival times will be chosen by the captain and are dependent on weather and tides. The average Great Hammerhead Safari runs from 11am to 5pm.
Departure from Bimini Big Game Club Fuel Dock 30 Minutes Prior
Welcome to Hammer Headquarters! Guests should arrive at least 15 minutes before the scheduled departure time. Drinking water will be provided on board, but we strongly recommend bringing along snacks and/or lunch.
Arrive at Hammerhead Grounds Around 11A.M. OR 1.30P.M.
After anchoring up at Hammer Headquarters, we will begin to set-up for the dive, this includes baiting the water. Once set-up is complete, it's time to start looking for sharks! This process can take anywhere from 5 minutes to several hours. Once we attract a Great Hammerhead and they are comfortable, divers will be invited to enter the water. The dive is in approximately 20 feet of water so our tanks will last a long time! Once you're out of air and because the bottom time is so long, we suggest going up, getting some food and resting before going down again. However, you're always welcome to dive, dive, dive! Keep in mind, average water temperature during Hammerhead season is around mid to low 70s, thus we always recommend a full 5mm wetsuit, hood and gloves.
Return to Bimini Big Game Club Around 5P.M.
We always dive until we’re either out of bait, tanks and/or sunlight - whichever happens first!
From the cold waters of California to the warm waters of Bimini. What an amazing trip!
