MENUMENU

Bikini Atoll

Bikini Atoll

Bikini Atoll, The Marshall Islands

5 – 18 June 2022

Bikini Lagoon is the final resting place of some of the finest and most famous WW II-era naval vessels. A huge assortment of types litter the lagoon floor, from mighty battleships and carriers to destroyers, submarines and smaller transports and landing craft.

Dive Profile
Due to the nature of the environment at Bikini Atoll the diving conditions are considered to be very advanced. Dive Adventures recommend that only divers with the appropriate training and skill levels and who are confident and experienced divers even consider going to Bikini. Depending on the needs of each group, there is a minimum of two deep dives per day. If time and nitrogen levels permit there could be diving later in the day on reefs at shallower depths.Diving on the Bikini wrecks is respectfully recommended for technical divers only with a minimum of PADI Tec 40 level or equivalent, with wreck experience, as the average depth of the wrecks is around 50 meters (150 ft). 

To get the most out of your dives in Bikini Atoll, highly recommended are:

  • TDI – Advanced Nitrox & Deco Procedures
  • IANTD – Tech Nitrox
  • NAUI – Tech Nitrox & Deco Techniques
  • ANDI – Technical Nitrox and
  • PADI – Tec 50

Depth limits given by the Cruise Director must be followed and wreck penetration is not allowed without a dive guide.

Sea Life
This area has been untouched for 40 years and has very prolific sea life including sharks, tuna, marlin, turtles and much more.

Radiological Status
The US Department of Energy (DOE) and Lawrence Livermore Laboratories have carried out extensive research and monitoring of Bikini Atoll. Their reports state that in general the environment poses no radiological danger. However, there are some very low amounts of residual cesium deep in the soil that could be absorbed into plants with deep root systems, such as coconut trees. If these plants are consumed in large quantities, over a long periods of time, an unacceptable level of cesium may be absorbed by humans. “The potential dose [of radiation] to a person swimming in the Bikini Lagoon or diving on or around the sunken ships is so low … that it can be considered essentially zero.”
