Yep - exactly.
It depends how fast you drive. Leave an extra hour for customs.
And have a blast, it is beautiful - and visit Chub Cay if you can for me!

Chris,

The 180 miles are open ocean miles. Safest bet is first to Bimini, which is about 55 miles. Clear Customs in Bimini (Big Game Resort). Then to Chub Cay which is the longest segment, about 90 miles across the Bahama banks, this section is les than 10 feet deep and usually pretty smooth. Then from Chub Cay into Nassau is another 40 miles or so, much of that in what's known as the Tongue of the Ocean. It's real deep, and can be very nasty. Plan ahead, watch the weather, morning is usually best.
Good fuel availability at the refrenced stops, although cost will run from $2.95 per gallon and up.

Have fun!
Steve
