Anyone ever make a Bimini trip in a CC w/single OB from FL? It's an offshore model with plenty of freeboard, cruises around 26-28 knots.
Never considered the Berries. Thanks, Pascal.To be honest Bimini is not that great anymore. It has been destroyed by Resort World Bimini Bay which has bulldozed and concreted over the northern half of the island. Alicia town is a dirty and dusty shadow of itself. Even Honeynoon Harbor isn’t as nice as it was since storms cut thru the beach about 15 years ago.
Walker Bay, whenever that s finished, is about 100nm from PB and 140 from Miami. It s a long run for what is pretty much a single destination. Personally I think the Berries make more sense, same distance (actually closer to Miami/FTL) and a lot more to enjoy. Great Harbor Cay is a great settlement, with many anchorages nearby, all the down to Chub.
Btw Chub has been rebuilt and as become a very nice place. We ve stopped twice in the last few months to clear customs. The marina and resort is one of the nicest in the Bahamas.
