Bimini Guide

Located just fifth miles off the Florida coast, the Bahamian island of Bimini is the country’s closest to the United States. Ferry services run four times a week from this beach filled island to Miami with FRS Caribbean.

What’s there to see in Bimini?
Big game fishers who get their kicks from chasing the planet’s most monstrous sea creatures will know all about the Bimini Islands. The duet of isles on the western fringes of the Bahamas, surrounded on all sides by the deep-blue surf of the North Atlantic Ocean, is widely regarded as one of the best fishing spots in the world, featuring Marlin and Tuna and Barracuda.

Yet the islands are not just the domain of anglers hunting for trophies. The tropical archipelago, spread thinly across the districts of North and South Bimini, is also defined by its breathtaking beauty with every inch covered in emerald-leafed palm trees and golden beaches. The coastal shallows are a hotspot for divers and snorkelers too with the coral reefs teeming with exotic marine life. Shark Diving and the Dolphin house are popular amongst visitors.

How do you get around the island?
The island’s port is found on the needlepoint stretch of North Bimini, a short distance north of Bailey Town. It is a designated section of the beach from which ferries come and go. Though there are only a few paved roads in Bimini, all branching away from the Kings and Queen’s highway, the island is no more than five miles from tip to tip and most visitors travel around on hired golf carts and bicycles

What ferry services leave the island?
Just one ferry route currently operates from the dock in North Bimini four times throughout the week. This route, hosted by FRS Caribbean, sails the short distance west to the city of Miami on the gorgeous coast of Florida.


Fort Lauderdale (Miami) Guide

The city of Fort Lauderdale is located in the US state of Florida and is situated around 40 km to the north of Miami and lies on the Atlantic Ocean coast. The city is famed for its beaches and cultural scene and along with some of its neighbours in Florida, it has been reinventing itself over recent years. It is probably fair to say that many of Florida's tourist destinations can be a bit gaudy but Fort Lauderdale appears to have been able to buck this trend following redevelopments in the downtown and beachfronts areas of the city. The downtown part of the city is full of culture with boutiques and cafes and is matched by the beach area with its undeveloped shoreline, hotels, shops, cafes and resort style hotels replacing older hotels.

From the city's port there are daily ferry services to Freeport on Grand Bahama Island. The crossing time for the 76 mile journey takes around 2 hours and 30 minutes.
