We are currently in North Bimini, at Bimini Bay, and have been in and out for about 2 months now. It is a bit tricky, and we have gone out in our dinghy
several times during our stay and found sailboats aground, and have helped get them off by pushing and pulling etc. and then leading them to deeper water
with a handheld depth sounder
. One had a draft
of 9'!I would suggest that you take it at high tide (or at least a rising tide), and then DON'T CUT THE CORNER when making the turn to port. This is the biggest mistake. They have put in two markers further out to give you some direction. Head
toward the entrance to Bimini Sands (the pink buildings) and make the turn fairly close to shore, in an almost right angle manner. There is one skinny spot, but you will be fine after you cross it. Keep the white (with red line) marker on your starboard side as you enter the narrow channel and you will be fine. The bottom is sand all the way in, so go slow. If you touch at a slow speed it is super easy to back off.
