[QUOTE=Jupiter Sunsation;4533051]Float plane is a Cessna Caravan...8 passenger seats I think though Cessna does build them with more seats but they get sparse.

Big ferry is gone but local paper notes a smaller one restarted.
[url]http://touch.sun I was told that there is a possibility to charter more flights if you can get a group 8.

The twin prop plane I rented last was $2500 round trip and sat 7 passengers. Honestly it was like flying in a 1970's Japanese car!

Ft Lauderdale to Bimini was 31 minutes and we ran at about 1500 ft. They were navy blue/white Britten Norman's and the company was great to deal with!

We thought about it. Trust me. Even just pleasure cruising to bimini, racing, then cruise home. But if we blow a drive or something over there you're gonna have to come down and idle her home for us okay?
