Bimini dive centre announces addition of floating dock
With the recent return of regular, scheduled seaplane flights to this popular Bahamas out-island destination, owners of the Bimini Big Game Club, have announced plans to build a floating dock to accommodate direct seaplane arrivals and departures for guests at the resort.
Michael Weber, general manager of the popular 51-room resort and marina, confirmed that management had approved construction of an $18,000 floating dock on the south end of the property.
In an agreement with Tropic Ocean Airways - the airline that has reinvented seaplane travel in Florida and the Bahamas - the Big Game Club will be able to exclusively afford guests the convenience of dockside customs and immigration check-in as well luggage pick-up service. Weber said the floating dock should be installed and operational by the middle of June.
Mr Weber said: “With the addition of the floating seaplane dock, the Big Game Club will officially become the home base for Tropic in Bimini.”
Weber said the main benefit of seaplane departure is convenience - no need for early arrival for customs and/or security checks, and passengers avoid the need to travel to and from the South Bimini airport, which requires both a taxi and ferry ride, saving almost an hour of travel time.
