It was a while ago we took our dog to the Bahamas 2002 but it sounds as though the rules are the same .We had an exam plus the shots required more than 48hrs before departure from Florida.I understood when talking to an official in the Bahamas that the certificate should be shown to the Customs officer with other papers and he/she would decide if a vet needs to be brought into the picture.We cleared in in Bimini and had no problem.Not sure if Bimini has a vet.I just looked but dont have the phone # any more.
As an add on(I keep trying to convert people) Why leave from Miami? The best way to go across is from Angelfish Key and ride the stream to Bimini.WE left at first light and were tied up at the dock in Bimini at 15:45.
Hope this helps
