EZ DIVE magazine

The "1st Bilingual Diving Magazine", EZ DIVE, featured Bimini, The Bahamas in their Oct/Nov 2009 issue. The author's underwater photographs were taken during boat trips with local operator Al Sweeting, Jr. You can read the story (and the DCP shout out!) by clicking here.


One of our favorite Bimini dolphins (oh, wait, aren't they all our favorites!?) has just received a name! ID#078, now called "Speedy," was named by Jenni MacArthur for Mark Tse. Speedy is a juvenile male who is just that. And when he rolls over, you can see his big, dark, belly spot! Now that Speedy's name is official, you can support DCP's research and education programs by adopting him today! Want something a little more flattering? How about a nice cozy sweatshirt with his image front and center? Click to adopt Speedy or click to shop Speedy Gear.Thanks for the support Jenni and Mark!If you are interested in naming a dolphin, check out ID#086!
