With the largest marina in the Bahamas, Bimini Bay Resort and Marina has become an established hub for yachting and sport fishing enthusiasts. And now it’s destined to emerge as South Florida’s new “offshore playground” with the Summer opening of its Beach Club and debut of a fast ferry service direct from Miami.
The Bahamas Express, which sails at a speed of 32 knots, will operate daily (except Wednesdays) from the Port of Miami and offer round-trip excursions from $99 per person. In less than two hours, Miami residents and visitors will be able to leave the hustle and bustle of the city and arrive in a private, tropical getaway. The white sandy beaches and crystal blue water of Bimini are unmatched throughout the Caribbean.
“Bimini has long been Miami’s best kept secret,” said Bill Lee, General Manager of Bimini Bay Resort and Marina. “The Bimini Express will make this island paradise even more accessible to South Floridians.”
The Bimini Bay Resort and Marina Beach Club will include dining, shops and numerous other activities. A series of “Endless Summer” events and promotions will begin July 4th weekend.
Developed with traditional Bahamian architecture, Bimini Bay Resort and Marina is comprised of 350 individually-owned existing residences, many of which feature top-of-the-line, luxurious amenities, all within a relaxed and friendly neighborhood setting. Situated on the Northern tip of the island of North Bimini in the heart of what’s known as “The Bone Fishing Capital of the World,” the resort is located on the closest island to the U.S. Mainland, only 48 nautical miles off the coast of South Florida. It features three restaurants, a shopping village, the “Beach Bums” children’s activity center, two outdoor pools, tennis and access to other activities, including scuba diving, snorkeling and boat tours.

(NYSE: MTN), owner and operator of iconic properties, including Tempo Miami in the 67-story Marquis building in Downtown.Future growth plans for Bimini Bay Resort include the development of a boutique RockResorts hotel, RockResorts branded residences, a RockResorts Spa and environmental and sustainability projects.
