Bimini Sands just wrapped up five days of filming with the National Geographic Channel's hit series Dangerous Encounters with Brady Barr.

The crew came to Bimini to film some of the incredible shark species that these islands are famous for, and ended up with some great footage of Lemon sharks, Nurse sharks, & Tiger sharks that will appear on an upcoming episode of Dangerous Encounters.

Along with South Bimini's famous SharkLab, the crew from the Bimini Sands Recreation & Activity Center helped the National Geographic team get the shots they needed. One member from the Recreation Center also joined the film crew recently for a week of filming sawfish on the west side of Andros.

To find out more about these, and other exciting episodes of Dangerous Encounters with Brady Barr, check out the National Geographic Channel's website, or stop into the Bimini Sands Recreation & Activity Center!


Bimini Sands in Southern Boating Magazine!

The May issue of Southern Boating Magazine has dedicated itself to the beautiful islands of the Bahamas. This "Bahamas 2010 Special Addition" has loads of great information about all the islands of the Bahamas, including two separate articles that mention the Bimini Sands Resort & Marina and Bimini Beach Club!

In their "Bahamas Update", Southern Boating explains "We recently found a pleasant surprise in the greatly refurbished Bimini Beach Club and Marina on the south end of South Bimini. If your goal is an exquisite white sand beach overlooking the most crystal-clear aqua ocean, the Beach Club is tops. If sipping frosted drinks at a poolside tiki bar is high on your list—that works, too. The elegant restaurant features the area’s only sushi bar."

Later in the issue, Southern Boating introduces its readers to the Shark-Free Marinas initiative, and correctly points out that "Bimini Sands Resort & Marina was the first in all of the Bahamas to sign onto the campaign," and also talks about other marinas that have followed suit.

Make sure you pick up the latest issue of Southern Boating to find even more reasons to make the Bimini your reel-life paradise!
