We were charged $150 in North Bimini (Alice Town) March 21, 2017. We are a 34 foot (34.2 on the USCG documentation form) Pacific Seacraft. I have my computer printed and rubber stamped receipt.

Re: Our Experience No Name Harbor to Bimini

Bill,
Glad to hear you got the lessor charge. I hope you spent the extra 150 pretty quickly on some wonderful adult beverages. But, I wanted to make sure that others who check in to the Bahamas don't think that they will be charged the same as you. I have confirmed that the "official" charge is 150 for 30 ft and under and 300 for over 30 ft. Of course it is the Bahamas and perhaps the rules have changed again!
I'm going to be sure to check in at Alice Town next time in hopes of getting the lower rate.
