The Bimini Big Game Club first opened in 1936 originally as a high end dinner club. Through the years, the club has changed hands several times and now, it has legendary artist/conservationist Guy Harvey's stamp of approval on it. The club was gracious enough to invite media personnel from around the country to be a part of the grand reopening.
