  • Bahamas for
    vaccinated tourists

    April 26, 2021

    Bahamas will allow the arrival of vaccinated tourists from May 1st

    Bahamas for
    vaccinated tourists from May 1st

    With the idea of ​​seeking stimuli to reactivate tourism in the Bahamas islands from next May 1st, tourists vaccinated with the 2 doses will be able to travel to the Bahamas without having to present a negative COVID 19 test result.


    The Bahamas islands will allow all those people who have received the full doses of immunization, at least two weeks before traveling, to the country to enter the country. Negative PCR with up to 5 days of validity is required for the rest of the travelers.


    Prime Minister Hubert Minnis announced at a press conference that: "All that will be medically required to enter the country will be the proof of vaccination and that two weeks have passed since the final dose." This measure wants to activate tourism as soon as possible, on which the Caribbean archipelago largely depends.


    The prime minister indicated that anyone who has not been fully vaccinated must provide a negative PCR test taken within five days prior to arrival in the Bahamas. "This measure will greatly enhance our economy and will also help reduce the number of infections. When tourists are fully vaccinated, since they will have received all the doses, they will be able to participate in events in a closed environment where the mask would not be necessary".


    This measure has been announced when several cruise lines (Royal Caribbean, Crystal Cruises and Bahamas Paradise Cruise Lines) are going to start sailing in the Bahamas from June and July, this coming summer.


    Warning in the United States. On the other hand, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) raised the warning level for the Bahamas this week to the highest level of health risk, the 4.


    Fully vaccinated travelers may be at risk of contracting and spreading covid-19 variants, due to the current situation in the Bahamas, so all trips to the archipelago should be avoided," says the updated advice from the CDC. The United States recommends not traveling to 80% of the world's countries.


    The Bahamas has reported 10,000 infections and 194 deaths since the beginning of the pandemic, with a population of around 400,000 people. There are currently just over 500 active cases in the nation. Not everyone has been in favor of this decision, although many sectors of the Bahamas, dependent on tourism, want to reactivate their economy as soon as possible.


    As of today, April 26th, 2021, less than 4% of the total population of the Bahamas has received the first dose of the vaccine.

    Ferry to Bahamas relaunched on Febraury 2021 from Port Lauderdale (Florida) with Balearia company

    Ferry to Bahamas relaunched

    Balearia Caribbean will relaunch its ferry service from Florida to the Bahamas on Febraury 2021, departing from Fort Lauderdale port. The South Florida-based company runs ferry services from Fort Lauderdale to Bimini first and from Port Everglades to Freeport (Grand Bahama island).


    The company announced last week that the Government of the Bahamas has approved the launch of the fast ferry service between Miami (Fort Lauderdale) and Grand Bahama (Freeport) in the Bahamas. His first departure to Freeport is scheduled for February 11, 2021.


    Balearia will be offering initially one sailing service a week, with ferry on Thurdays. At the end of Febraury, another ferry service will be implemented on Sundays. If there is an increase in demand for passenger transport, the shipping company is prepared to increase the number of weekly departures in March and April.


    At the same time, Balearia will reopen the ferry route between Florida to Bimini island starting on February 10th, 2021. This route will have, at the moment, a frequency of 3 departures a week, in both directions. The Jaume II ferry will be the ship that does both routes.


    Balearia will retake its operations with a host of new health and safety protocols, including mandatory face masks, electronic boarding passes, enforced social distancing and temperature checks prior to boarding, and only 40% occupancy of the total capacity of its ferry.


    Other sanitary measures imposed by Balearia are: plexiglass dividers have been placed in the common areas and between all the seats, the ship and the ferry terminals are subjected to a deep and extensive cleaning process before, during and after each crossing.


    The company’s ships also undergo “deep and extensive sanitation” before, during and after each sailing, the company said. Balearia says it has been certified by Bureau Veritas with the Global Safe Site Covid-19 certificate, one of the first shipping companies to receive the designation. It should be noted that all travelers to The Bahamas must fill out an electronic travel form and have proof of a negative COVID-19 test that is no more than seven days old, among other requirements.


    All passengers boarding from Fort Lauderdale (Florida) to Grand Bahama or Bimini (Bahamas) will have to show a negative PCR test for COVID-19 performed at least 5 days before the trip. Each passenger must also apply for a travel health visa.


    NOTE: We recommend that all passengers verify all the necessary travel requirements at the time of their trip, both in and out of the countries they are going to visit, always before starting with the preparations and purchases of their ferry tickets.


    To keep up to date and have all the information, safety and travel protocols in the Bahamas, you can visit the websites http://travel.gov.bs (Bahamas) and https://travel.state.gov (United States). The reopening of the shipping routes between Grand Bahama and the United States is expected to increase the number of visitors to Grand Bahama island and help recover the jobs lost due to Covid-19 and mitigate the economic effects of the pandemic.

  • 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.

" Amazing island. Amazing place.

The ferry ride is very fast and entertaining with entertainment on board. Bimini is very beautiful and we bought the excursions to the island as soon as we arrived.

The boat was very well and comfortable. We'll repeat the experience next year"

" A lot of waiting in Fort Lauderdale until the ship leaves.

The trip was very boring. The TV didn't work and the ferry was full of children. But it is cheaper than the plane. That is the only advantage."

John
Michael

" Comfortable boat, with plenty of space between seats, with entertainment on board.

Masks, hydroalcoholic gel and a lot of safety and cleaning due to the Covid issue. Better for me than by plane."

Astris
Kimberly

" I will never travel by ferry to Bimini again. We had to wait almost 4 hours before the boat left and once there, you are only on the island for about 6 hours. The day trip is very expensive for such a short time in Bimini.

I prefer to fly to Nassau from Miami and from there visit the keys by boat and spend more days on vacation in the Bahamas."
