​Bimini  2020               June 23 – July 2

If you are a boating enthusiast, enjoy creating fun memories, white sand beaches and love crystal clear blue water, this is the trip for you, Bahamas Bimini Cruise.   The event is sponsored and sanctioned by the Central Florida Sail and Power Squadron. This will be third annual  Bimini  trip for the organization and tenth for the coordinator Gary Yeomans. 

Since this is an open water ocean crossing of 54 miles the boat requirements are  minimum 24 foot closed bow cruiser or center console fishing style with open through hull scuppers.   Sorry, no flats boats, bow riders or pontoons.  The trip starts on June 23nd with an overnight stay at Bahia Mar Marina and Resort in Fort Lauderdale. We have a group dinner and Captain's meeting that night. The marina is a full facility resort with the famous Lauderdale beach  within 100 yards.

The second day, we depart at sunrise crossing the Atlantic Ocean to North Bimini the closest of the Bahamian Islands, approximately 2– 3 hr run 48 nautical miles.  While in Bimini we stay at the Bimini Big Game Club marina. BBGC has rooms, pool, bait, clothing,dive shop, Tiki bar and restaurant. Golf carts are available to visit the two mile island with gorgeous white sand beaches, local unique shops, historical buildings, bars, native restaurants and the  new five story Hilton Hotel .

We will venture out for diving, snorkeling, ship wrecks, beautiful islands and the famous “Islands in the Stream” gulf stream fishing only one mile outside.
We will cross back to Fort Lauderdale on Thursday, July 2nd. Several boaters will be staying an extra day at Bahia Mar before departing for home.
There is no fee for the trip, only your own personal expenses. You will be
