Fun Time in Bimini

probate-rprobate-r Posts: 262 Deckhand
Just got back from a few days in Bimini last weekend, and am just getting around to posting. Weather was hot but incredibly calm. With two couples and 4 kids, this was much more of a relaxed family trip than anything else, but we did get to fish a little, snorkel a lot, and poke around at all the normal hangouts (Sapono, Honeymoon, etc) We did muster up some fish on the deep drop, including our first (to the boat) queen snapper, some tuna, and misc reef fish. The best part of the trip for me was putting my daughter on her first ever bonefish ... she handled it like a champ!



Sometimes I think we do this to make memories for the kids, but I think they are making memories for us!

    Sounds like a fun trip. We were over there the weekend of the 18th but it was more of a adult get away than a fishing trip.

    Excellent video and sweet ride.  Looked like the kids had a blast.  By the time mine get old enough to go, I hope to have this whole thing dialed in.

    Where did you swim with the rays? Would like to take the grand kids there. Tommy

    Honeymoon Harbour.  Its at the North tip of Gun Cay, which is a couple (7?) miles south of Bimini.  They are there all day every day, but the area gets crowded around mid day.  With the grandkids, I'd go first thing in the morning for a few hours as you will have the place all to yourself.

    We went and had a blast. Thanks for the instructions to Honeymoon harbor. The trip was a lot of fun.
