    • Cheapest way to see the Exuma Cays while staying on Great Exuma

      Exuma District Apr 14, 2014 at 9:19 AM

      My fiance and I are travelling to Exuma end of May to get married. Most all our available (ie: saved up) fiances are going into the trip and resort stay so that we get the free wedding. This leave very little disposable income to do much else with. I really want to see the swimming pigs and swim with them and want to visit the iguanas. Most of the boat trips to do so cost a lot. Through the resort it's 325 per person (650 for the both of us!) and the cheapest is 200 per person. I considered renting a boat on our own to go up there one afternoon but the only place I can find is Minn's and you have to stay in Elizabeth Harbor.

      So does anyone know a really cheap alternative to seeing these islands or a cheap boat rental place? Neither of us have our captains license but I am no stranger to a basic power boat as those are used for fishing where I'm from (as well as pontoons and such) I understand that this is not quite the same as the ocean waters and would have to really see it to estimate it for myself but I was thinking of a very small (12-15 footer) boat that could stay close to the coasts for traveling up through the Cays there. Are there any locals that do this sort of thing for a low cost?

      Just being there is going to be a fantastic thing and being able to see water that clear and blue. This will be my first time ever being out of the country! :) I'm a water baby by nature and nothing thrills me more than spending a week in those waters. Any advice or help at all will be most appreciated. Thanks

    • Bimini Info

      by lop1957 Online Now Feb 18, 2006 at 4:47 PM

      If anyone has been to Bimini I would love any info. We don't have a boat as we are from Colorado but will be in Florida in July/August and we just got certified in Scuba diving and would like to dive in Bimini. We've never been and don't even know what side of the island to stay at, things to see, etc. We will be lobstering in Florida during mini lobster season and heard the lobsters are big in Bimini. We also heard about the stairs to Atlantis and thought that would be neat to see even if they seem to be manmade! Thanks in advance.

    • Chalk's

      Has anyone heard if Chalk's is still grounded after the terrible tragedy last month?

      The Compleat Angler burnt down to the ground, today, killing the owner, Julian Brown, also. All the Hemingway memorabilia was lost in the fire, too.
