Just thought I would quickly share our experience on making the crossing to Bimini
from No Name Harbor. No Name Harbor is a nice anchorage we arrive late and it was pretty full so we just anchored outside in the bay, lots of room. The second night we did anchor
in No Name Harbor and enjoyed the restaurant. You can go ashore and walk around the park it is nice.
We took a quick Uber ride to the Winn Dixie just a few miles from No Name Harbor a bought provisions.
at the Crandon Park Marina is two miles away and best prices we found, it's a municipal marina.
was a quick run 2-3ft seas. Arrival in Bimini we docked for the night in Alice Town at Bimini Blue Water
Resort. Friendly, a small marina, nice docks definitely recommend $1 a ft plus $15 for electric
. They also have gas and diesel
if you need it.
Get your customs
paperwork from marina office and fill out the customs
forms and the immigration forms for each passenger. Customs office is next door at the Big Game
Marina, take the exact change in cash ($300 for the boat
and first 3 passengers plus $20 for each passenger over 3). After paying customs you need to go approx 4 blocks further north and the immigration building will be on your left (pink building says police station). Turn in your immigration forms and present passport for each passenger and you are all done.
We made it to Staniel Cay and back to Tampa, had a great trip.
