I don't. You should be able to reach them by phone.

Is the Sea Creast Hotel closed? Their web page is down and trip advisor says there's no booking options.

What are the most convenient check-in options and locations in Bimini?

The Bahamas website lists these:
  • Big Game Marina
  • Bimini Public Dock
  • Bimini Sands Marina 242-347-3101
  • Blue Waters Marina
  • Brown’s Marina
  • Resort World Sea Plane
  • Resorts World Marina
  • Sea Crest Marina
  • South Bimini Airport 242-0347-3100
  • Weech’s Dock (Destroyed by hurricane)
We will be staying on the boat on the hook so any location could work. It would be good to pick up some ice and maybe fuel wherever we dock. Even better if we could leave the boat for a couple hours to walk around and get lunch.

The few few references I found mentioned walking from Big Game to the immigration office, or on south Bimini getting a ride to the airport.

Thanks
Matt

Must’ve been like sliding across a tile floor in your socks if the waves were as Windfinder showed for this morning.

Couldn’t have asked for better. I am realizing with an extra 70lb of fuel and a wife on the back, it becomes quite bumpy though. Normally I’d just stand up and cruise any speed I want.

Took 2.5-3 hrs to cross but that included several stops and spending at least 20 minutes playing with and swimming with a pod of dolphins and school of fish (rainbow runners?)

Thanks. No wonder it’s suggested to fill out the forms prior.

No worries, pay attention when you print them not to miss the bottom part of the form or you'll be filling them out again like me last time

Yea, and make sure it's pretty neat. I had to rewrite them last time because they weren't neat enough (I filled them out on the back of the boat).
