Memorial Day Weekend

If I arrive in Bimini on actual Memorial day (Monday) and leave on a Wednesday will the crowds be gone by then? Or is it generally pretty wild/busy the whole week? I really don't want the amount of boats and people to ruin any of the experience. Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.

The US Memorial Day is not a holiday in the Bahamas, though you may find visitors coming for the long weekend. By Wednesday, they should mostly be gone, but keep in mind that May can be a busy time of year anyway -- holiday or no holiday. You don't make clear if you are arriving by air or by boat. If the former, then there may be limited seats, so book in advance, but if by ferry, then no worries there. Private boat, then maybe make sure you've a slip in advance.

We have not decided on how we are arriving, it will either be the ferry or air. Some of the ferry schedules are not out yet. FRS has the route, Bahamas plus does not allow me to book that far in advance. Im just trying to decided if we want to take a one day trip or stay 2 days on the island.

A one day trip isn't going to give you much time to experience much of what the islands have to offer. I'd suggest 2 days at minimum -- unless you're just going to sit in the casino!

We will actually be there 3 full days, I booked a Dolphin excursion for one of the days. Any other advice on cool things to do involving marine life. Are there any beaches you can snorkel without taking an excursion?
