Plus another $300 for fuel would make it around a $700 Dolphin n suds lunch for four...

MMM, fresh conch salad and an ice cold Kalik..

Bimini for lunch is one of our favorite stops when out fishing.. I believe the landing fee's are 300 for 31' and above, 150 for below..

Yeah, that sounds correct. I have heard that some people don't check in and just fly their flag, but I'm not big on getting in trouble, especially if it is in a foreign country.

Miami KW is around 170 miles on the GPS

Miami Bimini 35 Miles (Gulf Stream...Watch out... ask Christian/Hors La Lois)

Check with your insurance before heading to the Bahamas.
