I am back from a marvelous trip in Bimini Bahamas. Would recommend it to anybody. We live in Atlanta so we flew to Miami spent the night at the Miami airport or hotel.
Left the next day on the two hour ferry. Stayed at the Seacrest marina in Alice town , $145 a night for a modest room with two double beds's fridge shower closet. Rented a golf cart for $70 a day. Went every day to the Hilton and enjoyed their facilities.
Stayed three nights and left on the fourth day at 6 PM to ferry back to Miami. The ferry was about $211 since we did not come back the same day.
The airfare is only 250 and everybody said it's reliable now so next time I would opt for that. Below are the websites for first the ferry and then the two airlines and then a link to the Hilton.
