Getting Documentation Ready For The Bahamas
 
Thought anyone planning their first trip might be interested in this.

If anyone sees something in error, or has suggestions for additions, let me know.

This is more around the entry into the Bahamas and return to the States rather than preparing the boat etc.

Thank you Menzies we won't be going this summer but strongly considering the next if we can figure out a cost effective means to install an air conditioner.

Thanks. We’re planning to go there next spring.

Good information!

Sea Triscuit: Experience comes with experience both good and bad. I think you learn more from bad experience than good experience. Assuming you get out alive.

Where are you going?

Thanks for the info. We'll be heading to the Abacos in late April. We have most of the items on your list checked off with the exception of the customs forms.

I've found the link to the 5 page form but also this 1 page C2a form.

We'll be checking in at West End and want to be sure we have what we need filled out. Can't find any directions for filling out the long form. Am I the Medical Officer? Hope to not have Small Pox before we arrive....

Others have said they just wait till they get there and the process takes 10 minutes.

Spike, that's the second form in the link I provided!

10 minutes? Not a chance unless you have the forms already filled in. I would say 30-45 minutes.

But, again, don't sweat it. Have as much as you can ready, the pleasant very helpful officers will help you with the rest.

Enjoy the trip, we will be heading back from there the first week of May so may pass you!

We will be working our way through the Bahamas as we return to Florida from the Eastern Caribbean. Likely jump off point will be French Cay in the Turks and Caicos. Don't have the route figured out yet. Expect to stop in George Town in the Exumas and then north to cross into US at Ft. Lauderdale so we can check into the US.

Currently in Puerto Rico awaiting for a weather window to go through the Mona Passage. Likely will be another week.
