Let’s face it, we all deserve a little rejuvenation from time to time. Contrary to what your kids and colleagues might think, you’re actually really human, and your super powers; well they come in limited quantities. The Black Panther needs his vibranium, Popeye needs his spinach and the rest of us need a recharge.

Now for some of us, a recharge is a good book and quiet time at the end of a long day. For others, it’s jumping thousands of feet from an airplane. {Only the thrill seekers will subscribe to this}. But for others of us, we have a desire to find a much more transcendent and exacting experience. We search for these otherworldly encounters far and wide and this is why we want to introduce you to a few places tucked away in our islands that we promise will bring you to a place of calm, where your spirit can be awakened.

Queens Bath

You know those Jacuzzi tubs you find at hotels that you’re always leery of? Yea! The ones you might sit in, but in the back of your mind you fear the critters that lurk beneath. Well, don’t even think about it, you’ll never have to sit in one ever again. Let’s talk about these natural hot tubs found in Eleuthera.

Centuries of waves pounding against rocks have carved incredibly unique baths, warmed to perfection by the tropical sun. Be baptized in this relaxing water-body and allow your spirit to be freed and cleansed. Breathe in the salt air and hear the crashing sounds of the Atlantic. Beware! This is not for the faint of heart because the view of the Atlantic can be rather intimidating. Once you’ve gotten past that part though, just allow yourself to levitate, to know what it’s like to be uninhibited and refreshed.

Healing Hole Experience

Healing Hole

Zen? We knew Zen before it was even a “thing”! The practice is meditation. Historians and locals say that this mystic spring has brought healing to the physical body, but the healing often takes place in the mind. An enigmatic cool spring of freshwater amid the surrounding warm salt ocean. Hidden in the east mangroves of Bimini, you will uncover the Healing Hole, and the journey through this marshland is ideal for meditation. Low hanging, exotic shrubs encompass this habitat and create an enchanting aura ideal for deep reflection.

Some claim that after this experience they have found clarity and inspiration; Dr. Martin Luther King is atop that list. As you enjoy the simplicity of wading in this fresh water spring, your guide will instruct you to “ask to be healed” and healing you shall receive; you suddenly experience it’s magical curing powers. The natural mystique of this bath is promised to cure your heart, soul and spirit. The cool water on your skin, the lithium emitting from the marshes, the sun shining on your face and the refreshing sounds of the ocean: the remedy that will make you come alive.

Swimming with Wild Dolphins

Bimini ARC

If you’re reading and shaking your head and feeling like “a lil old dolphin swim “ain’t nuttin’”, well, clearly you need a dose of this wild therapy. Participants have testified that a swim with these charming creatures brings a feeling of bliss and a child like innocence, which is as healing to the body. Now, our Doctorate is incomplete and we fell asleep during the residency, so we are not experts on medicine. But there have been reports of persons even being healed of terminal illnesses after this euphoric encounter.

Just a few minutes’ boat ride from South Bimini, one will witness these playful creatures as they relish in their habitat. You will dive to depths and spiral upward with these wild dolphins in the open sea. Swimming with them is uniquely therapeutic as in that moment you are completely free of inhibitions, judgment and toxic thoughts and energy.

Every IMAX movie of wild dolphins includes footage of these dolphins because they are so playful and the water is so clear. People, young and old, say that swimming with the wild dolphins in Bimini is one of the most powerful, uplifting experiences of their lives and claim they will never be the same again.
