Bimini Biological Field Station Sharklab

  • Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge

Updated 07/12/2013

Fodor's Review

Showcased often on the Discovery Channel and other TV shows, the Sharklab was founded over 20 years ago by Dr. Samuel Gruber, a shark biologist at the University of Miami. Important research on the lemon and other shark species has furthered awareness and understanding of the misunderstood creatures. Visitors can tour the lab at low tide. The highlight is wading into the bay where the lab keeps several lemon sharks, rotating them on a regular basis. The tour leader gets in the pen with the sharks, captures one in a net, and speaks about its behaviors and common misconceptions people have of the lemon. Tours are offered daily but visitors must call in advance for times.
