The first Bahamas stop will be Bimini where we will check in and begin the adventure. There is an international airport and customs in Bimini so it is an easy place to join us. The aqua blue water of Bimini is a site to behold.
Some of our favorite things to do in Bimini are - collecting sea glass on the beach, snorkeling and fishing coral heads and a sunken ship hoping to come back with a fresh fish or lobster, taking a dinghy ride over the flats and down a creek where there are conch to gather, a healing hole to take a dip, and a statue of Martin Luther King to remind us of the speeches he wrote while meditating in the Bimini mangroves. One of the best fly fishing guides in the Bahamas lives in Bimini and it is a real treat to hire him to fish the flats.
We also like to take bike rides to buy fresh baked coconut bread at Charlie's Bakery, stop in to eat a fresh conch salad at Joe's Conch Bar, visit The Dolphin Museum and see the progress of the ever growing home built of recycled beach materials, and riding down the ocean front on Queen's Highway enjoying the aqua water and keeping an eye out for dolphins. Just being here puts you in a different mind set - relaxed and away from hustle and bustle.
We expect to arrive in Bimini by November 8th and stay 2-3 weeks, until Thanksgiving weekend around December 2nd.
There is an international airport and customs in Bimini so it is an easy place to join us. United, jetBlue, Silver Airways, and Bahamas Air all have regular flights to Bimini International (BIM).
