Re: recommendations on jumping off point from Florida to Bahamas

I always departed from Miami to get a better angle crossing the Gulf Stream and its northerly current. Bimini or West End for my destination depending on where I was heading to. You should be able to find what you are looking for in Miami such as Crandon Park or Dinner Key which both are a good place for a shakedown cruise such as heading over to Elliot Key. There use to be a small marina in Dania which is just next to Ft. Lauderdale called Cozy Cove Marina which had facilities for what you are looking for.
