Default From miami, how long of a run are...

I was looking at google, and I'd say miami to key west is roughly same distance miami - bahamas.

How long of a run are they ?
Anyone does miami - cuba in performance boat? or is it too far?

Cuba is 90 miles from Key West. Probably not a good idea to do it in winter without a weather window. Also, better have good fuel capacity and navigation stuff.

Bimini is much closer to Florida.

I have made the trip from Fort Lauderdale to Islamorada. Depending on sea conditions, running on the inside, it was around 3-4hours. I have yet to take the whole Key West run.

Not a good idea to be asking about a trip to Cuba on the NET. Lookin to pick someting up??? I see your from Canada you go direct to Cuba from US waters its illegal.

That depends on what you're driving and what the weather is doing. Bimini is super close. You could run over for lunch and come home. Although, you have to check into bahamian customs and last I remember it was like $300 per boat (I wasn't the captain but it was something around $300), so that would tag a bit onto the lunch tab.

What were you rowing ?? Thats only a 100 mile trip. 2 hours max taking it easy in most any boat.

Miami to KW is about 165 miles.

Miami to which part of the Bahamas. It could be anywheres from 45 miles to 200 miles depending on which island
