    Why does everyone ski to Bimini?

    Why not west palm to grand bahama?

    Whats better about bimini? We are trying to plan a trip and have some questions..

    Also how is trailer and car parking overnight or for the whole weekend work at boat ramps down there?

    I would assume for the adventure of going out there on a jet ski. I know the reason I'm doing it is because I'm able to do it. I want to explore and I want to see deep blue ocean and beautiful bimini water.

    Adventure and open Ocean yes. I'm all for it But why not ride to the grand Bahamas islands and not just Bimini?

    Probably because the distance is closer to 85 miles vs 50.

    85 miles???...maybe if you're launching from Miami, which wouldn't make much sense. Palm Beach Inlet to West End is about 55 miles. It's pretty much a straight shot across the stream, just like Miami to Bimini. I've never been to either island but I'm guessing overnight ski security might be a bigger concern on the big island.

    Im looking at freeport, I'm not sure what exactly you plan on doing at west end. I would want to keep going inland. Sounds like another possible destination for future trips.

    It looks about 65 miles min.

    What is there in Bimini to see and do? Any gambeling like on the main island?
    How was the resort bimini sands? How much is fuel per gallon?

    If you're looking to gamble and do stuff like that, Bimini probably isn't the place for you. Bimini Sands is a nice resort and I'd definitely recommend it as a place to stay...But overall Bimini is a place to go and get away from the real world. There's not much there, so if you're looking for land activities it's not really worth your trip. Fuel was around $5/gallon last summer.

    Also can you carry a gun with you as long as you have a concealed weapons permit?

    Well if you want to launch out of Ft.Lauderdale this is where we leave our truck and trailer for 2 days with 24/7 security @ $8 dollars per day. http://www.harbourtownemarina.net/
