The 75-slip, full-service marina has long been considered the front door to the Bimini Big Game Club Resort & Marina dockmaster Robbie Smith has been the first to greet thousands of boaters at the docks during the last 27 years.
Smith’s professionalism and approach to his craft recently brought him to Nassau as a nominee in the tourism category for the 2015 Bahamian Icon Awards program held at the Melia Nassau Beach Resort last weekend.
Celebrating greatness, the Bahamian Icon Awards recognize Bahamian citizens who have exemplified the best intentions of the Bahamian Spirit through excellence and achievement.
Though he didn’t receive the Icon Award for Tourism, Smith did receive a certificate of nomination along with tremendous support from his wife and family, coworkers and friends and the Bimini community, who all celebrated his honor to be a national nominee.
“Robbie is one special person,” said Robier Escutary on the Bimini Big Game Club Resort & Marina Facebook site. “The times that I have been to Bimini, he has been very kind.”
Smith, certified by the International Game Fishing Association (IGFA) as an official Weigh Master, presently serves as the chief counselor for the Bimini & Cat Cay District. He is also involved in the community as PTA president of the Primary School and an Esteem Leading Knight of the Guiding Star Lodge #1374.
Smith and his wife, Enjoli, are the parents of six children and reside in Bimini.
