Part event, all adventure, the 2013 Bimini Road Rally will be the seventh year of the popular personal watercraft ride. This is a one-of-a-kind experience that takes up to 20 fun seekers on a trip from North Miami, across open-ocean and the Gulf Stream to the island of Bimini in the Bahamas – smack-dab in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle.
Each participant will test their physical and mental stamina in this demanding, once-in-a-lifetime ride with the safety of expert PWC adventure riders and the support of RIVA Motorsports and Marine escort boats leading the way. The all-inclusive trip will include a one-night stay at the Double Tree Ocean Pointe Resort and Spa in Sunny Isle, Fla. and three nights at the Bimini Sands Resort and Marina.
“The Bimini Road Rally has truly become the personal watercraft industry’s premier, owner’s adventure ride,” says WaterTop General Manager Tim McKercher. “Bimini is truly an island in the stream and is such an interesting and unique destination. The Bimini Road Rally allows PWC owners to get away with no worries about anything, as our veteran event team makes it very easy to relax and have fun.”
Eventurists will visit the sunken concrete ship, the Sapona, various aircraft crash sites, highly sought fountain-of-youth, Honeymoon Harbor, Alice Town, and the legendary Bimini Road – thought to be the path to the lost city of Atlantis.
This Rally is limited to the first 20 people who own their own, unmodified four-stroke personal watercraft and meet the detailed criteria required for this trip.
“This is our staff’s favorite event of the year, every year, and we do a lot of events,” noted McKercher. “The reason is, it’s fun, and everybody who participates always leaves with an experience-of-a-lifetime and with RIVA Marine leading the way with their Sailfish boats the group can feel at ease and focus on fun knowing they are being escorted by some of the finest offshore boats.”
For those who want to enjoy Bimini with their significant other, but would rather not take to the high seas, WaterTop offers a fly over option from Ft. Lauderdale International Airport to Bimini and back with the WaterTop support staff via Continental Airlines.
All interested parties must apply and meet WaterTop’s requirements for admission. The participation fee is $2,300 per rider and $1,900 for a second person sharing the same room. This fee includes four nights accommodations, all meals, Bahamian Boating Permit (mandatory $150), 50 gallons of fuel in Bimini, WaterTop Gift Pack, and much more.
