We are wanting to follow a group of boaters to Bimini leaving from Ft Lauderdale area. We have a 20' ProLine. Kinda sketchy taking it over, but then again it's not too far. We also will be bringing our 2 yr old, so we're really wanting other boaters inputs on if this is safe, and where we could contact people that are meeting up to travel over together.

We did find a ferry that takes you over, but takes you to Freeport....not a big fan. Loved Bimini though

Try Bimini Island Air Charters, Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport.

My two cents;

- It's safer in the summer when the water tends to be calmer.

- Don't go if any of the forcast winds have an "N" in them.

- Wrap the kid up in a good quality life jacket with GPS locator and maybe even a harness too.

- File a float plan with the U.S. Coast Guard (Important)

- Buy lots of Bimini bread and bring me some!
