Bimini is approximately 48 miles from Miami. The harbour entrance can occasionally be subject to shifting sandbar conditions due to strong currents flowing through the area, however, the government has been regularly engaged in dredging operations and typically maintains minimum depths. Browns Marina can help with navigation and directions to and through the harbour entrance and the marina and provide information on local weather, depth (draft) and other conditions. Browns Marina can arrange for an escort through the harbour entrance for those who are unfamiliar with the area.
