The Bahamas will also host the Miami Dolphins cheerleaders for their annual calendar shoot and for Bimini Bash, a fishing tournament held just 50 miles off the coast of Florida, on the island of Bimini.

We consider Floridians our neighbors and look at this partnership as a cultural exchange program of sorts. We bring the beauty of The Bahamas to Dolphin Stadium and the players bring their enthusiasm and athletic expertise to The Bahamas,” said Vernice Walkine, director-general of tourism for the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism.
