woman w fishJoin us for fun and adventure in Bimini, Bahamas! Stay and eat on the 135 ft ship American Patriot, departing from Hollywood, FL south of Ft. Lauderdale.

Bimini is a quaint island only a ¼ mile wide and about 7 miles long with bakery shops, conch stands, beverage establishments and plenty of ocean & natural wonders to see. It’s only about 50 miles from the U.S. – an entirely different experience than bigger cities such as Freeport and Nassau!  The north side has newer developments and the south side is pretty much the original Bimini.

Bimini Big Game Club

Bimini has the small town atmosphere that attracts people to the out islands versus the main ones. The main road has barely two lanes. Most people take golf carts and bicycles and walk around in town.

There is much to do! Go fishing, snorkeling, rent a golf cart to see the island, shop at the small straw market, grab some fresh conch at the outdoor conch stands, buy fresh Bimini bread at the bakery, take the ferry to South Bimini and visit the Shark Lab for an interesting, personal experience with their sharks. There is a free tram to hop on to see the north side with beautiful beach and casino. In only a few hours you can explore Bimini. Watch the videos below form our prior Bimini trip to see what to expect.

Women only. If we open to men there is a separate bunk area and bathroom. Recommended age 18 and up. This will be a fun group and chance to make new friends! What we all have in common is love for the outdoors, fishing and adventure, no matter what age. It’s more fun to go with a group than on your own so don’t worry if you don’t know the other people. You soon will!
