    Day trip to Bahamas. Although a day trip to the Bahamas may seem like a short trip, it is actually a trip to paradise. Miami, and the southern coast of Florida, are only 60 miles from the Bahama Islands (58,8 miles to Bimini and 96,7 miles to Freeport, in Grand Bahama island). Bustling Miami, teeming with people, traffic jams and high-rise business buildings, is just a stone's throw away from the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean and the tranquility of the Bahamas.


    The Bahamas are a group of more than 700 islands, very famous for their warm climate throughout the year, their cuisine based on fish and shellfish and their beautiful beaches, almost virgin, that will take your breath away. The perfect place to make a day trip from Miami.


    Those who do not know these islands can visit them on a day trip to the Bahamas, by ferry or by plane, and find out if their next trip will be a 2, 3 or 4 day trip to the Bahamas or not.If you are on vacation in Miami (or in the south of the Florida) you can also take advantage of a one-day getaway to the Bahamas. More fun for little money.

To get to Grand Bahama from Miami - Fort Lauderdale it takes 3 hours by ferry. Balearia Caribbean is the shipping company that makes this connection. Because the distance between Miami - Florida and these islands of the Bahamas is so short, it is easy to make a 2, 3, 4 and 5 day trip to the Bahamas and stay in some of the hotels on the islands (Hilton World Resorts Bimini in Bimini island and Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach All Inclusive hotel, Grand Lucayan Bahamas hotel, Flamingo Bay Hotel & Marina, Grand Lucayan Light House Pointe, Island Seas Resort, Taino Beach Resort hotel, Pelican Bay Resort hotel, Castaways Resort hotel and Bell Channel Inn hotel in Grand Bahama island), some of them even with All Inclusive packages.


    We recommend this one day trip to Bimini (Bahamas) or to Grand Bahama island, to all those who live in one of the following cities, or in their vicinity: Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Hialeah, Port St. Luice, Pembroke Pines, Hollywood, Miramar, Coral Springs, West Palm Beach (all Palm Beach, North and South, Royal and Palm Beach Gardens), Pompano Beach, Miami Gardens, Davie, Boca Raton and Sunrise.

    Day trip to Bahamas from Fort Lauderdale


    Fort Lauderdale is the city where the shipping company Balearia Caribbean has its headquarters and from where the ship Jaume II departs every day for the Bahamas (sometimes to Bimini and other times to Grand Bahama - Freeport).


    Remember that if you are going to board the Bimini ferry you have to be at the passenger terminal 3 hours before the scheduled boarding date. Boarding closes one hour before the ferry departure time. After this time Balearia Caribbean will not let you access the ship. We advise you to be in Port Everglade in plenty of time to board the ferry to the Bahamas.


    For those of you who live in Fort Lauderdale, or near Fort Lauderdale, an hour's drive from Fort Lauderdale for example, it is very interesting to do this one day trip to the Bahamas, whether it is to Bimini or Freeport (Grand Bahama).


    Getting to Fort Lauderdale from many Florida cities will take no more than an hour by car. Miami, Hialeah, Port St. Lucie and West Palm Beach are some big cities that are within a 1-hour drive from Fort Lauderdale. Other cities, such as Pembroke Pines, Hollywood, Miramar or Coral Springs, are located more or less 30 minutes by car from Fort Lauderdale and, therefore, it is very easy to get to the ferry terminal to the Bahamas with your car and enjoy your one day trip to Bahamas.

    Bimini day trip. Bimini is the closest Bahamian island off the coast of Florida (USA) and the fastest way to get to the island is by ferry from Fort Lauderdale (30-45 minute drive from Miami). From Fort Lauderdale there are between 2 to 4 departures a week (depending on the month of the year), and the shipping company that does it is Balearia Caribbean. The trip between Fort Lauderdale and Bimini takes two hours and departs from the Port Everglades docks in Fort Lauderdale.


    The ferry arrives at the pier in Alice Town (North Bimini) from where you can rent a golf car to explore this small island and go to one of its beautiful beaches, one of its famous beach clubs, where you can spend the day, or at the Hilton at World Resorts Bimini Hotel and Casino where you can also spend the day paying an extra admission.


    During the ferry ride you can enjoy an outdoor deck and a cafeteria where you can order hamburgers, soft drinks or hot drinks. Once in Bimini we advise you to enjoy a refreshing seafood salad or grilled fish on the seafront. The lobster salad is also one of those dishes that you should not miss. Bury your feet in the white sand as your senses marvel at the culinary spectacle. Luxury turned into food.


    Of course you should not forget a refreshing cocktail where you will notice the Caribbean character of its people. Ask for it with a little spice. Tabasco, lime and salt will give life to your drink.


    If you like sea sports you can snorkel, swim with dolphins, kayak and paddle surf. Other sports, such as diving, feeding sharks or jet skiing, are recommended for longer stays in Bimini, from 2 to 5 day trips.


    Discover the Hilton at Resorts World Bimini and prepare your next 3 or 4 day trip to the Bahamas. This hotel has panoramic views of the sea and the marina, more than ten restaurants, a casino and a roof pool that will make Instagrammers fall in love.


    On a day trip to Bimini you will be between 5 and 6 hours on the island, so we recommend that you simply enjoy one of its beaches, try the local food and plan your next getaway to Bimini to spend your next vacation on the island with one of the ferry plus hotel packages.

    ferry or crusie day trip


    If you are thinking about which is better, whether to do a ferry one day trip or a cruise one day trip to the Bahamas, we are going to present you the advantages and disadvantages of each of them, in our opinion.


    ferry one day trip to bahamas, Pros: It only takes 2 hours from leaving Fort Lauderdale to arriving in Bimini - 3 hours if you do your one day trip to Grand Bahama. Traveling by ferry to the Bahamas makes the most of your time in Bimini (6 hours) or in Grand Bahama (5 hours).


    Bahamas Cruise Day Trip, Pros: Cruise ships usually have pools, bars, entertainment. As soon as you leave Miami for the Bahamas, your vacation begins. As a rule, the ferry does not have a swimming pool and has a small cafeteria.


    Bahamas Cruise Day Trip: Pros: On cruises you have the option to purchase All Inclusive beverage packages. From the moment you get on the cruise you are entitled to your drinks.


    You can take a day trip to the Bahamas by ferry almost every day. Some days to Bimini and other days to Grand Bahama. One day (really one night) cruises have fewer departures and less flexibility in dates. In addition, with the ferry you can travel on a one day trip to the Bahamas all year round, while cruise ships usually do these mini cruises (1 or 2 nights) normally in low season.


    As you can see, doing a one day trip to Bimini (or Bahamas) by ferry or on a cruise is very different. In addition to the price, there are other factors that you must take into account when choosing your next vacation in the Bahamas. But most importantly, never give up on the Bahamas vacations, whether you're vacationing at a resort in Bimini (Hilton for example) or cruising in Nassau or Exuma.


    Book your one day trip to the Bahamas as soon as possible and get the best prices and offers.

    Children policy on the Bahamas Bimini ferry

    Children policy on the Bahamas and Bimini ferry

    Updated on the
    15th of March, 2022


    Minors, children and babies have a special space on the Balearia Caribbean ship that travels to the Bahamas. A trip to the Bahamas by ferry, whether it's a day trip to Bimini or a family vacation on Grand Bahama island, is without a doubt the ultimate family vacation. But if you are traveling with children (for the best family vacations) you must take into account Balearia Caribbean's policy for traveling with children, minors, babies and pregnant women.


    CHILDREN, INFANT & MINORS TRAVEL CATEGORIES


    Children 2 years old and under travels FREE with an accompanying adult. (They pay only taxes), Economy or Premium class, any season, one way or round trip. Babies must travel in the lap of an adult and they have no seat asigned.


    Children from 3 to 12 years old travel by ferry with a 50% discount on the price of the adult fare, taxes not included.


    Children 13 years and older pay the regular Adult rate (paying the same taxes as adults).


    Infants (from 0 to 6 months) may travel on board Balearia Caribbean ferry to Bahamas.


    PLEASE NOTE: In the event of heavy seas, strong winds or inclement weather, Balearia Caribbean may deny boarding of the baby at the discretion of the Company for reasons of safety of the baby.


    MINORS (under 18 years of age) traveling with an accompanying adult, who is not the parent or legal guardian of the minor, a notarized parent/guardian letter of consent is required at the time of travel (signed by both parents) with a copy of a photo ID.


    MINORS traveling with ONLY ONE of their parents ALSO require a notarized consent letter from the other parent not traveling, if this parent does not have the Consent Letter available, they must sign a Release Form, which is available at check in.


    If there is no second parent with legal claims to the child (deceased, sole custody, etc.) any other relevant paperwork, such as a court decision, birth certificate naming only one parent, death certificate, etc., would be useful.


    NOTES: While the Authorities may not ask to see this documentation, if they do ask, and the traveler does not have it, may be detained until the circumstances of the child traveling without both parents can be fully assessed.


    Adults traveling with children should also be aware that, while the U.S. does not ask sometimes for this documentation, other countries (as Bahamas) may have a requirement and failure to produce notarized permission letters and/or birth certificates could result in travelers being refused entry.


    Balearia Caribbean LTD, ferrytobahamas.com and its ownwer, are not responsible for any person(s) denied boarding due to failure to produce the consent letter. To request the Consent Letter Form for minors, please email: customer.service@baleariacaribbean.com


    Birth certificates are not accepted as a valid document to travel from April 23, 2018.


    PREGNANCY WOMEN POLICY on board.


    Any passenger who is 31 weeks or more pregnant on the date of their ferry journey will not be allowed to sail. Before the departure of the ship, pregnant women from 24 to 30 weeks must present, before boarding, a letter from their doctor certifying the gestation period in which they are and that the future mother is fit to navigate on ferry.


    If you are traveling as a family on vacation, with minors, children and babies, and you have questions about the documentation you have to present to travel and enter the United States and/or the Bahamas, do not hesitate and ask us. We will be happy to help you solve your doubts.

    About FRS Caribbean.


    For you to know more about FRS Caribbean, we tell you that it began its journey on the Bimini ferry, connecting the port of Miami with the port of North Bimini in 2015, to later carry out the Miami Freeport (Grand Bahama) ferry route from 2017. In July 2017 FRS Caribbean announced the launch of its new service to Freeport, Grand Bahama Island. On that date, the super fast ferry "San Gwann" made the connection between Miami and Bimini Island. As of this date, it also began to carry out this route that took clients from Miami to Freeport in 3 hours.


    The FRS Caribbean ferry San Gwann had a capacity for 427 passengers seated in seats. In addition, this FRS Caribbean ferry was equipped with: 2 bars on the passenger decks, where passengers can buy snacks and soft drinks during their trip, a tax free shop for souvenirs and gifts. In addition, FRS Caribbean also gave the option of buying excursions on board to enjoy the islands, both Bimini and Grand Bahama, (water activities, kayaking, rowing, jet skiing and snorkeling), among others. All of these services are now also available on Balearia Caribbean's Jaume II ferry on its routes to Bimini and Grand Bahama.


    According to FRS Caribbean "Bimini and Grand Bahama islands offers a combination of historic appeal and modern attractions. Clients can enjoy a glamorous vacation at a luxury resort with charming small-town charm." FRS Caribbean began its operations between Miami and Freeport on Thursday, November 9, 2017, allowing passengers to enjoy a fast, easy and relaxing one day trip aboard the HSC "San Gwann" with day trip prices starting at just $69.98 plus taxes and fees.


    FRS Caribbean had its headquarters in Port Miami, Terminal H, where passengers could park their car nearby during the day or night. With this new line, and the Bimini ferry line, FRS Caribbean continued to bet on the development of maritime connections between Florida and the Bahamas, although a couple of years later it left the Caribbean and suspended all its operations.


    About FRS Group.


    FRS Caribbean was part of the FRS Group. FRS Group is a leader in the short-sea transportation of people, vehicles and cargo: a global group of ferries and maritime transport.

    Bahamas Spring Break 2022

    Updated on the
    23rd of February, 2022


    The Bahamas islands (both Bimini and Grand Bahama) are possibly one of the best places to celebrate Spring Break 2022, for many reasons. The first reason is due to climate and good weather. Spring Break is usually during the months of March and April. In these months, in the Bahamas, temperatures are usually around 77 degrees Fahrenheit. This good temperature makes possible many outdoor activities and the practice of water sports. It also makes it possible for you to be outdoors at night and enjoy the islands or music concerts.


    Another reason why the Bahamas is the perfect place for Spring Break is the islands themselves. We are talking about paradise. Fine white sand beaches. Crystal clear water, very clean. A natural environment full of life, ideal for snorkelling, diving and spotting marine animals, such as sharks or dolphins. In the Bahamas you can go on excursions on the sea, rent jet skis, a boat to discover desert islands or paddle surf, among many other activities. If you like sport fishing you have found paradise. In the Bahamas there is a great diversity of big fish and many companies that will help you make your biggest catch.


    The All Inclusive resorts in the Bahamas are hotels that have everything you need to spend a good Spring Break vacation. Places to relax or have fun, a beach club by the sea, casinos, delicious food and drinks included in the price of your resort, a very friendly staff and all kinds of activities to do.


    The best way to get to the Bahamas from Florida is by ferry from Fort Lauderdale. The ferry takes only 2 hours whether you are traveling to Bimini or Grand Bahama (Freeport). It is comfortable, safe and cheap. If you travel to Bimini, the ferry leaves you in North Bimini, very close to the Hilton Resort, one of the best resorts in the Bahamas. If you travel to Grand Bahama we recommend that you take a taxi to, for example, Viva All Inclusive resort. You can buy ferry tickets by clicking on this link:ferry to bahamas

  • What to do in Bimini?

    What to do in Bimini?


    These are the 10 best things to do in Bimini by our own experience.


    1.- Diving the wreck of the S S Sapona ship. The SS Sapona is the wreck of a ship, a privileged place for fishing and a navigation landmark. Sapona is a popular diving and snorkeling site. Some brave men and women even dare to dive 40 feet into the ocean from the top of the ship.


    2.- The Bimini Road. Bimini Road, also called Bimini Wall, is an underwater rock formation near North Bimini Island in the Bahamas Islands. Bimini Road consists of a linear feature running from northeast to southwest that is 0.8 km (0.50 miles) in length composed of rectangular limestone blocks. There are different hypotheses about this formation. Some say it is a wall, a road, a pier, a breakwater, all man-made structures. However, there are currently no arguments to confirm any of them.


    3.- Bimini Shark Center. Since 1990, on the island of South Bimini, there is a shark research laboratory. Among its main functions is to study the role of the lemon shark in a tropical marine ecosystem. The Discovery Channel and National Geographic Magazine have talked about it and filmed this center on numerous occasions. The laboratory can be visited free of charge and you can take courses in Tropical Marine Biology or Shark Biology.


    4.- Small tours in South Bimini island. Explore the majestic beauty of South Bimini. We recommend you take a tour of the island's mangroves where you can dive in Healing Hole.


    5.- Water sports. North Bimini is the ideal place to take a quit ride on a paddle surf table through its turquoise waters, or even in a kayak as a couple and enjoy the splendor of the island breeze. If you are looking for speed and emotion, even better get on a jet ski and wave the waves under Bimini sun, while you join the underwater water sports adventures and have fun!.


    6.- Great Isaac Cay Lighthouse. This lighthouse was originally built in 1852 as part of the Great London Exposition. The white cast iron tower stands about 152 feet tall, with a light that blinks every 15 seconds and is visible 23 nautical miles away. Several ghosts are said to haunt the lighthouse. Legend has it that a British ship was wrecked near the coast during the construction of the lighthouse, and the entire crew survived except for one child, who was eaten by sharks. Witnesses claim to have seen the child's ghost around the compound.


    7.- Swim with dolphins at North Bimini. You can spend a fun morning playing with the dolphins and interacting with them. Or, if you prefer not to go into the water, you can observe them from the boat, to take pictures and videos from very close. .


    8.- Stay a night at least on the Resorts World Bimini Casino or visit its Casino. The Resorts World Bimini Casino is a luxurious, two-story, five-star casino hotel with spectacular floor-to-ceiling windows that provide spectacular panoramic views of the marina and lagoon of North Bimini island. You can try your luck at live action table games, roulette, craps, blackjack and baccarat, as well as being able to play exclusive sports betting and betting action, as well as a wide variety of slot machines. Casual dining and cocktails can be enjoyed at their Hemingway's Restaurant, the Casino Sports Bar, and at special events and tournaments throughout the year.


    9.- Beaches, of course! Radio beach. Beautiful beach with crystal clear waters and white sand where you can relax and enjoy the Caribbean. This beach is great for walking and watching the sunset. Look out for the “Welcome to Bimini” tree!. Further north is the beach at Resorts World. This beach is the white sandy bottom you’d. And never forget the beach on South Bimini! Located just south of Bimini Sands resort and marina, this beach is pretty much picture-perfect. Dotted with sea glass, conch shells, stunning blue water, and some rocks at the northern end of the beach - it’s hard to ask for more! It is the perfect place to spent all day at the beach.


    10.- Conch salad. At North Bimini, you can find one of the freshest conch salads you've ever tasted. Accompany it with a cold beer and enjoy paradise.


The best way to know the prices, schedules and offers of every date is to make a booking in our Balearia ferry engine.

" We had to wait a long time at the entrance in Bimini for passport control and they asked us for our Vaccination Certificate and a PCR test :(. Bimini island is very beautiful but in one day there is almost no time to do anything. The ferry, fine."

" I recommend the ferry as the fastest and cheapest way to get to Bimini from Florida. On the previous occasion we took a plane and then we had to transfer them by boat from the airport. And the price of everything is much higher. The Bimini fast ferry has everything and travels comfortably.."

" Our Valentine's getaway was very romantic. My fiancee gave me the trip for Christmas and it has been very special. The ferry is comfortable and very fast. We will repeat our vacation in Bimini for our honeymoon or Spring Break.."
