Good luck with your trip. Here is a tip that not all Canadians are aware of. Before you leave Florida for the Bahamas you must go into a US Customs office [ probably Ft Laud or Miami ] and complete some forms and pay a small charge for a User Fee Decal. Also check in with them immediately upon your return to USA. The first time I crossed in 1991 I did not follow this procedure and they harassed me for 4hours and threatened to seize my boat. While I am not up on the current requirements I expect they can only be tougher and you should check. The penalties can be severe.
Also invest in a Bahamas Cruising guide. Lots of good helpful info. Available at most major Marine retailers in south Florida.

How many miles is the run to Paradise Island?
Where will you be leaving from (Marina)?
Does anyone have a pic that you can post of the chart that covers starting point to end point?

Nassau is further than 100 miles.

Be VERY careful of the weather and GAS. The keys are a better bet if you feel adventurous take a day trip to the Dry Tortugas.
