Do you have to go to West End or are you going further. If you're going further I would suggest going from Miami to North Rock (just north of Bimini). You can get onto the Bahamas Bank easily here. Even in the dead of night. From there you can continue across the Bank on to Nassau to clear in. If the trip's too long for you in one hop or the Tongue of the Ocean acts up a bit you can hide behind Fraziers Hog Cay ( just east of Chubb) for a day or two until things settle down. There'll be lots of boat crossing from Miami in January but I don't think any of them'll be going to West End. Most of the boats heading that way go from Lake Worth. I'll be in Miami in December, we usually make it across before the new year but as many have said, it all depends on the weather.

Toronto in summer, Bahamas in winter.
