I found the Shark Lab "tour" to be quite disappointing. All they did was sit us on the beach and tell us about sharks and then take us to a small pen and show us a baby nurse and lemon shark. I was expecting something a little more.....

same here, we went honey harbour was much, much better fun and relax with natural, wild "real shark" will bite when feeding them, kind of waste !

Please keep up updated on the power situation while you are there. (your location - and any power interruptions and duration).

That does look like a nasty storm....they say a hurricane is brewing in the gulf.....hope it pulls all of that there!
Bimini big game has not had an outage the entire time we have been here. They have their own generators for when there's a power issue.

I'm still crossing Saturday. Probably late morning as it looks manageable.

Might do plane wreck and possibly Honeymoon again.

Also, Thursday at 8pm, I'm at the casino bar at RW ;) now

there is nothing wrong with leaving in the afternoon, except that the USCG has less of daylight time to find you if things go real bad.

If you look on the west side of the island, the waves are 4’-5’ feet high crashing into the beach.

Let’s shoot for 1000, that’ll give time for the water to calm down a bit.
