Ferries from United States to Bimini Islands

About United States:

The United States of America is a federal republic consisting of 50 states and a federal district.

The United States is vast and diverse in terms of its geography, climate, and cultures. Travelling from the West coast of the States to the East coast means a journey of over two thousand miles and across several time zones.

America lives up to its reputation as the land of dreams and a destination full of adventure waiting to surprise you.

From Florida, it’s quick and easy to sail over to Freeport on Grand Bahama Island and to the Bimini Islands. These regular services get you to the Bahamas in no time, utilising high speed ferries sailing at speeds of roughly thirty to forty knots.

About Bimini Islands:

Bimini consists of two main islands surrounded by cays, located just fifty miles east of Miami in the United States.

The pearly white shores and famed angling opportunities had Ernest Hemingway hooked during the 1930s, where he worked on his novel ‘To Have and Have Not’, and Martin Luther King Jr. composed some of his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech here in 1964. It has remained a popular haunt for Americans, given its proximity to Miami, and it’s easy to see why. The ‘sport-fishing capital of the world’ certainly lives up to its title, boasting over fifty record-setting catches of wahoo, swordfish and sailfish. Quiet and beautiful beaches fringe the North Island, while the world beneath the waves is equally impressive, with the fabled ruinous Lost City of Atlantis and swathes of coral reef adorning the seabed.

Miami in Florida, USA, is the primary gateway to the Bimini Islands, with ferries docking just north of Bailey Town on the west coast of Bimini North Island in just two hours.
