Welcome! What are you cruising in? What's your take-off point? For example, the ICW
from Fort Worth to Biscayne Bay has 29 lift
bridges. Do you have the off shore experience to head
for the Bahamas
, and if not, how do you plan to get it? Where in the Bahamas? Lots of topics here, if we knew a bit more about your goals, your boat, and your experience. It's wonderful that you have the opportunity. There are people here who can help you make it a success if they know more. They certainly helped me.
