Have you ever wanted to completely destress and release all that no longer serves? To go deep within your soul where only peace resonates, where you awaken to who you were meant to be? Step for a moment into the bliss of what was discovered in this amazing sanctuary in BIMINI, BAHAMAS called WildQuest.... Beauty, serenity, peace, safety, sacredness, transformation, awakening, remembering, releasing, enlightenment, tears of joy and those of release, meeting as strangers but leaving as forever friends. Crystal clear turquoise blue water, white sandy beaches, breathtaking sunrises and sunsets, life-nourishing meals, amazing sailing, world-class snorkelling, and the most precious gift of swimming in harmony with the wild dolphins, up close and personal... Optional Yoga, meditations, energy work, group activities and so much more. Many have come here year after year, sometimes numerous times per year! This almost all-inclusive vacation is cost effective and worth way more than you can ever imagine. I am already planning next years trip!!!

Room Tip: There are benefits to each room but I personally prefer the ones with the ocean view! Step out your door and ahhhhhhhhhh!

Swimming with the dolphins in their natural environment was an amazingly uplifting experience. I found myself awed by their interest in us and their willingness to connect and interact. I so appreciate the non-intrusive approach of Wildquest in that we are guests in the dolphins' ocean home and we wait to see if the dolphins want to interact with us. They were very willing almost every time.
Another amazing experience was visiting the underwater Bimini Road made up of large rectangular limestone blocks. Some think it is part of the lost city of Atlantis. In any case, it is fascinating to see.
Wildquest is well-organized and seems to have the perfect place for everything. It made our lives so simple, for example, our snorkel equipment remained on the boat so that at leaving time we just brought ourselves and our towels and off we went.
Meals were beautifully prepared and so delicious and we were always so ready for them!
The Wildquest staff were always available, helpful and informative. They were such an integral part of our wonderful experience.
We purchased the DVD that is made of our group's time in Bimini and we are so glad we did. We've been having so much fun sharing it with our friends.

Need to sort-out the everyday mental junk from the quality, inner you? Worthless mental chatter be gone! Come to WildQuest, & let the dolphin magic heal your soul & spirit. Find your inner peace. Dolphins heal in amazing ways..........physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. A week in the dolphin world will change you in ways you never imagined. So much love; so much healing; wonderful crew; so many like-minded friends to share in your experiences. You will learn that life is beautiful, & meant to be enjoyed! Let the dolphins show you how.

Room Tip: I like Rooms A or B because they are near the kitchen. That way I can watch Tara create fabulous vegetarian dishes, & take-away some of her recipes to try at home.

I’m addressing my comments to those uninitiated in the realm of the Meditation/Mystical Journey vacation circuit. On the surface, the website seems to portray Wild Quest as simply an opportunity to encounter dolphins in their natural habitat, enjoy healthy food and partake in yoga or a massage if you wish. There is more to this, however-there are discussions of WQ’s philosophy which could be perceived as New Agey or verging on the pseudo-religious. There may also occur what is termed The Loving Circle which could be seen as an opportunity for members of the “pod” to open their hearts and share their feelings with others or as an Oprahesque group therapy session. While WQ states in their website that nothing is mandatory, they do attach both the philosophical talk and Loving Circle to vital information sessions for pod members. Sure, you can get up in front of the entire pod that is gathered in a circle and walk out. No one is stopping you but realize, the power of group dynamics will be at work. Just a heads-up.

It’s wise to remember WQ’s phrase from the website “we love to share this passion with like-minded people". Indeed, most people are like-minded being either returning pod members or regular followers with this sort of vacation circuit. They love this sort of thing-evidently WQ and their ilk are filling some need in people. You may feel like an alien in the midst of this or you may discover that your needs are being addressed, too.

Some thoughts:
>Consider leaving your electronic devices at home. It was my observation was that service can be spotty. Probably the most common gripe heard was that folks couldn’t connect with the internet and get their emails. Disconnect and you’ll be happier.

>The head chef and assistants do a fine job preparing good, simple and healthy food. Dedicated carnivores may find the selection and quantity sparse but really, there was a good variety of different things that will fill you. Folks who want sodas and alcohol will need to purchase them from one of the small markets nearby.

> I strongly urge you to consider if you are fair-skinned that you buy a rash guard. It’s a suit of thin, clingy material that will keep you from getting badly sunburned. You can slather on all the sun block you want but if you spend a lot of time in the water, you’ll have to keep coming back to the boat to renew. We had mainly cloudy to high haze skies and people were getting toasted.

>A big long towel is nice to wrap around yourself if you chilled after being out in the water for a long time and the wind has picked up.

>The rooms are simple and large. Our beds were very comfortable. Everything in the bathroom was in good shape and worked. The air conditioner was more than adequate. Earplugs are not a bad idea as the fan is a bit noisy.

>The crew was very kind to my wife who became queasy in 3-6 ft waves. She went into the back of the boat to lie down and they covered her up with a big towel and gave her peppermint oil on a paper towel to inhale.

>You are best advised to bring cash for crew tips, rentals, the supper on the South Island and any other purchases as the island is pretty much a cash-only economy.

>Take a day off and explore the island. The islanders are by and large uncommonly friendly-it is not unusual to be walking down the street and be greeted by most. Hang a left out the front gate and walk the string of villages: Porgy Bay (where you live), Bailey Town and Alice Town. It won’t be unusual to come across goats wandering around. Visit the Dolphin House in Alice Town. Since 1993, Ashley Saunders has adorned the façade and interior of this combination hotel, museum and gift shop with salvaged items. Mr Saunders is also the Island Historian and a fount of facts about Bimini. Go further up the hill past the museum to the Kings Highway and you will be treated to a wonderful view of the beach and ocean that photographs will never do justice.

We have been hearing about WildQuest and the dolphins from friends for a few years.... and finally gave ourselves the gift of the wonder-filled trip! The staff is beyond compare in every way. The food is amazing. The body workers are the best I have ever experienced (and I live in Sedona, a bodywork capital of the country). To swim with the dolphins is wondrous and the love that you are surrounded with both on land and in the water is magnificent. Yoga, Meditation, Dolphins... LOVE! We just got home today and while we will always remember this adventure, we are already looking ahead to next year. My husband is calling me "Blissma" as my feet have still not touched the ground!
