Baleària Caribbean replaces FRS as Bimini ferry operator
On 07.08.2019 Spanish Baleària Caribbean launched a new fast-transport service linking Fort Lauderdale/Everglades (Florida) with the island of Bimini in the Bahamas and replaces the previous ferry services Miami - Bimini from FRS Caribbean. The fast ferry connecting these two ports has a 650-person capacity and a maximum speed of 38 knots with the journey taking just under two hours. With five weekly services programmed to Bimini (Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday), the number of connections could increase based on demand.
The new route to Bimini is the second operated by Baleària Caribbean from Fort Lauderdale to the Bahamas. Since 2011, Baleària provides services between this port and Freeport on Grand Bahama.
