Genting ship could bring 3,000 people a day to its Bimini casino - Business - Commenter: ""Unspoiled Bahamian island"? Not if Genting has its way. This foreign developer plans to blast and dredge through Bimini's reef tract and dump the fill on top of a popular dive site to make a cruise ship terminal. The boat's capacity is equal to the entire population of the island itself, and Bimini does not have the infrastructure (waste management, fresh water, etc.) to handle it. This is all being done without local Biminite input, and when the local government found out, they asked for help in petitioning the Government of the Bahamas to deny this proposal that would destroy Bimini's reefs, the foundation of the island's tourism industry. If this seems like an obviously bad idea to you, please join the 1,300+ people that have signed the petition in the past week to stop this ridiculousness. Demand a more sustainable plan for Bimini's economic future! "
