Bimini Yacht Charter

Bimini consists of two main islands; North Bimini Island and South Bimini Island, as well as numerous cays. Located just 50 miles off Florida’s coast, it is easily reached by boat or plane.

The Gulf Stream rushes north, washing past Bimini, feeding and warming its coral reefs and serving as a watery highway for everything from marlins to mantas, dolphins to sea turtles. Even the famous author, Ernest Hemingway, was lured to Bimini by tales of the incredible fishing available here.

North Bimini is known for it's beaches and is the island's tourist hub. Alice Town and Bailey Town stretch the length of the narrow finger of land along the west of North Island and host restaurants, marinas and resorts.

South Bimini is nature-centric featuring eco tours, nature trails and marine research stations. It also has numerous stunning beaches and snorkeling and diving sites.

Only one airport serves Bimini. Daily scheduled air service is available from Nassau, Grand Bahama and Florida. There is also a seaplane service into Resorts World Bimini.
