I've done the trip for race week a number of times. On some trips we left from Jax, crossed the stream and sailed down the East side of the bank but most times we jumped across from Ft Worth or Ft Lauderdale. Insurance is obtainable but not cheap. The Bahamas are usually included in a Florida Policy but check with your agent on pricing or if a rider is needed. Better tme to go if possible is in late march to June after the Northeasters stop and before the storm season gets going.
