Island in the Stream – Bimini, Bahamas: January 10-17, 2021

Description

Prices have been adjusted after adding an additional night due to Silver Airways flight schedule changes.

BIMINI, BAHAMAS

Bimini is the true Island in the Stream, perched at the edge of a sheer underwater cliff that falls thousands of feet into the blue abyss. The Gulf Stream rushes north, washing past Bimini, feeding and warming its coral reefs and serving as a watery highway for everything from marlin to manta rays, dolphin to sea turtles, and lots of sharks, including the iconic Great Hammerhead Shark.

Casual Waterfront Dining

You didn’t come to Bimini for fancy décor and big city chefs with fussy menus, did you?  We trust not. We’ve spent our share of time around town, and hands down, relaxing with friends enjoying fresh conch salad, a cold beverage and watching the boats go by is about as good as it gets. So we set about creating a similar experience at the Big Game Club.

Perched overlooking our marina and the mesmerizing bonefish flats beyond, the Bimini Big Game Bar & Grill offers the best in casual waterfront dining.

Grab a stool at the bar, and catch Major League Sports on the our big screen TVs.  With our bar top decorated with colorful navigational charts, pick a different spot every time, and travel down island through The Bahamas on your barstool.  Always plan on a good time with friends, and entertainment from the bar staff and enjoy live music every Wednesday, Friday & Saturday.

Enjoy innovative cuisine and the best in friendly Alice Town service. Indoor or outdoor seating?  Your choice.  The BGBG Fish Sandwich, conch, fresh fish, steaks, pasta, or maybe that Cheeseburger in Paradise?  We don’t claim this is where Jimmy Buffet got his cheeseburger inspiration, but we know our Big Game Burger will satisfy the most demanding Parrothead!

Plunge into the blue waters of Bimini — where you’ll encounter some of the ocean’s most iconic apex predators, like the Great Hammerhead Shark.
