There are many benefits to visiting a resort with a marina. Guests are able to enjoy the traditional features of resort life. Like; comfortable accommodations, chef prepared cuisine and a variety of planned activities. In addition, travelers are able to participate in a myriad of water-based sports and local boating excursions.
It is for these reasons, that the Bimini Big Game Club Resort & Marina is so popular with travelers from North America and around the world. Located approximately 50 miles from the east coast of Florida, Bimini is technically the closest island in the Bahamas to the mainland of the United States. The resort itself is situated in the Alice Town area of North Bimini, seat of the island’s government and commercial businesses.
With access to its own marina, resort guests are able to schedule a full range of sea-oriented activities without having to waste precious time traveling elsewhere. Instead of booking rental cars or taxi cabs to distant locales, guests are in the exact location to sample deep sea and offshore reef fishing. When back on land, it is just a pleasant walk back to their suite to relax or prepare for their next meal.
Families can rest assured that they do not have to travel long distances to enjoy the fun of kayaking and paddle board adventures. More advanced water sport enthusiasts are able to swim with dolphins, snorkel to see coral reefs, or work with a PADI dive instructor to obtain their official open water certification. As with all activities, dedicated instructors are able to adapt lessons to fit the interests, age and prior experience of their students.
Travelers concerned with the care of the natural environment also appreciate a resort that has its own marina facilities. Known for its beauty, the Bahamas are home to a wide variety of ocean reef ecosystems where sharks live and breed. Guests are privileged to be able to participate in responsible sport fishing. This does not endanger the future for sharks, or hinder the health of the clear waters of the Caribbean.
To serve these goals, the Bimini Big Game Resort & Marina is proud to support the Shark-Free Initiative of the Bahamas. Fishing boats based at this private marina only practice “catch and release” when dealing with sharks. This allows for study and photography of sharks, without the harvesting of these unique animals that was once so prevalent in many cultures.
Also note that Commercial Shark Fishing is banned in the Bahamas.
