Bimini Island Luxury Yachting Guide

Comprising three islands, North Bimini, South Bimini, and East Bimini, visitors flock here to enjoy fishing, diving, sailing and much more.

Situated about 53 miles east of Miami, the area’s geographical location, which sees the Gulf Stream rushing past it on its way north, makes it a magnet for everything from marlin to mantas, dolphin to sea turtles, helping Bimini achieve a reputation as one of the prime spots in the Bahamas for ocean exploration.Indeed, with Bimini being so close to Miami, many Americans descend here by boat to fish or enjoy the local nightlife.

The numerous shipwrecks in the area, such as the wreck of the SS Sapona, which ran aground in 1926 during a hurricane, also add to its appeal as a diving spot, while it is also considered to be one of the world's top big-game fishing spots.

Further highlights include witnessing wild Atlantic spotted dolphins that gather north of the island, casting flies for bonefish on the flats of The Bahamas Bank, and kayaking to the legendary “Fountain of Youth”, a natural spring that supposedly restores the youth of anyone who drinks or bathes in its waters.

Bimini also boasts a famous patron, the American author Ernest Hemingway, who after docking his boat here in the 1930’s decided to return time and time again to partake in swimming off the beach, snorkeling, trolling for monster game fish and enjoying local rum.

The island is well established as a tourist destination with Bimini Sands Resort & Marina a popular stop-off point. Its modern marina is capable of accommodating vessels of up to 100 feet while the resort itself offers luxury accommodations, high-end dining and an array of visitor excursions.
