Travel Arrangements

Our program is based in the Bahamas. You need to arrange your travel to Fort Lauderdale Airport or nearby Miami Airport in Florida and your travel from the airport to the hotel.

Your room is reserved for the Sunday night at the Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach - a Doubletree by Hilton Hotel which is in Fort Lauderdale. Check-in time is 4:00 pm. We will meet at the hotel at 5:30 pm, so it is nice to arrive by this time if possible.

Early Monday morning the shuttle bus picks us up at the Bahia Mar to take us to the Sheltair FBO facility at the Fort Lauderdale International Airport for our flight to Bimini. Time and details will be available at check-in.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

All visitors, including US and Canadian Citizens, are required to have a valid passport upon entry into the Bahamas. Please also check if you need to have a visa upon entry to the US!

The return flight from Bimini to the Sheltair FBO facility at the Fort Lauderdale International Airport is on the following Saturday morning. You should be cleared through customs at the Fort Lauderdale International Airport around 11:00 am.

It is recommended you arrange your flight home:

  • From Fort Lauderdale International Airport (domestic flights): after 1:30 pm*
  • From Fort Lauderdale International Airport (international flights): after 2:30 pm*
  • From Miami International Airport (domestic flights): after 3:30 pm*
  • From Miami International Airport (international flights): after 4:30 pm*

*Please check with your airline if more time is required.

Please note: here's a baggage limit of 30 lb/14 kg on the island plane, that includes the carry on. Pack lightly or you'll have to pay the over weight charges, or there may be a possibility the overweight bag may have to come on a different flight.

Travel Responsibly

Climate change is a serious environmental threat, and air travel is the fastest-growing contributor to the problem. We all have a responsibility to limit our personal impact on global warming. To play our part in tackling climate change, we have teamed up with Climate Care to offset our greenhouse gas emissions.

ClimateCare.orgClimate Care is a service that helps you to repair the damage your activities do to the climate. It does this by ‘offsetting’ the greenhouse gas emissions, such as CO2, from your activities by reducing an equivalent amount of CO2 on your behalf.

These reductions are made through a range of projects in renewable energy and energy efficiency, which not only fight climate change but bring benefits to communities round the world. You can offset emissions from flying, driving and household energy use.

It's really easy to calculate your emission (and secretly, it's pretty interesting too). Select your points of departure and arrival. The calculator will display your emissions from this flight and the amount of money you should contribute. Amazing.
