Thanks for making the connection! We need to get together while we're there... We haven't planned out the daily activities yet but certainly going to map it out and hit the favorite spots... Also, we are staying at the Hilton on the north side but I'm sure we will be partaking in similar activities.

I was gonna star there. But I like the idea of floating docks. I don't have to worry about tide where I boat so the floating docks would be easier for me.

I'm planning on staying at the Bimini Cove resort. Anyone have suggestions on booking? Is it better to go through the website, or use AirBnB (or similar)?

Actually, the website isn't too helpful right now. There is no way to book, it seems. I also tried the Bimini Sands website, but that one doesn't let you book either (Expedia says sold out, tho').

I had a reservation through vrbo. But evidently it double booked and the only ones left were higher than I wanted to pay. So I got one at resort world.

Yeah, I looked on vrbo and didn't see ones in my price range. Airbnb sti had a reasonably priced one, or at least one that was not 4 bedrooms or more.

I've had bad luck with Airbnb canceling my reservations last minute with no explanations. So I started using vrbo. So far I've had pretty good luck. This is the first time this has happened to me on vrbo. Honestly i would sleep in a tent on a beach if i had to. I've been trying to do this trip for 3 years.

Great! Maybe we can all plan to head out at the same time from here. I've been wanting to do this trip for a few years, too. I cannot wait and was hoping to hook up with a couple locals (TX).
Cool as of right now I got a few boats from my local lake going. We'll plant a tx flag and take over the place.lol

Hey that's great!! If it works out, we would love more boats to join in... We plan on 2 days for trailing on each end of the trip. Here's our reservations for Bimini (attached) and we are possibly looking to hit Abaco for for their yearly cheeseburger in paradise party (see attachment). Still trying to determine if it's really happening or not but making reservation soon and can always cancel. Youtube vid -

We are time blocking two weeks for this trip. If this works for anyone, you can reach out on my cell 817.821.1878
