Has anyone tried to book for this summer? While I'm not ready to commit to any certain week just yet, I'm wondering how rates compare to years before the owners changed

They have taken groups already and booked a lot of it already. I called to try and get a single unit and they said they aren't ready for general booking yet but took my name and number and said they would let me know (doubtful).
There are also vrbo available there.
The marina is all ready for reservations it's just the condos yet, or so they told me.

Many of the "veterans" will likely be in on the planning for Bimini 2020. I expect it to be a bigger trip(s) next year due to this years challenges with Bimini Sands and the power situation.

I do know there is also an Abaco 2020 trip in the planning....but this is not for first timers and requires a lot of time, and a lot more prep.

If you haven't already read the Bimini prep thread....read that before considering this trip.
Hi Julian. Jose here. We are first timers going to Bimini. We have a 2019 AR210. And we would like to be included in any of the groups going to Bimini next year. Do you have any suggestions on this regards. Thank you very much. Jose

I’m in for 2020. I have a lot of the 2017 group wanting to make a comeback as well. Hoping the Sands gets it act together by then. I’m hoping for a June crossing if I can
Hi there. We would like to go To Bimini with a group for 2020 we have a 2019 AR210. Do you know of any group making hard arrangements? Thank you and happy boating

212ss here. I felt the 24' boats were pressing forward easily and i had to be careful to be outside their wake. This was good conditions. On the way back it was much rougher but then again i was originally trying to keep up with the jet ski group not realizing the boats were a bit behind us.
I bought trim tabs and have started installing to test the heck out of them early spring. Hope that puts us on even playing field.
Speeds weren't the problem it was the splashing with wind on my bow so we got soaked. The 24 footers are much deeper.
Hi. Did you install the trim tabs ? How they look, work for
You ?
