Re: Bimini Bahamas depth

Cotemar, Thanks for that but keep in mind that it doesn't reflect the current dredging and re placement of markers. I do believe the outer markers are pretty much still the same. Chuck

Re: Bimini Bahamas depth

I entered North Bimini today with 7' draft at mid tide. Most of the channel was 12 to 18 feet. The channel is dredged, but there is not a turning mark after the initial entrance buoys. You must really watch the water colors to stay in the channel.
