The crew made this excursion so much fun and very informative. We learned a lot about Bermuda and its people and culture. They made us feel so comfortable on the boat which made all the passengers interact with each and have fun together. Rum twizzlers and fresh baked cookies helped! LOL!

I liked this excursion so much in 2016 that I booked it again in 2018.The boat ride was pleasant, informative, and interesting. Due to mobility issues with my legs, I rode inside the boat rather outside in front. Snorkeling in the cove and small cave was not the best, but it was great for beginners and interesting enough for people who only snorkel on vacation.The water was clean and clear--shallow enough for walking, deep enough for swimming.Those who didn't snorkel used kayaks and pool noodles in the water or stayed on board to sunbathe. Some adventurers climbed a cliff and jumped into the water. Safety and cleanliness were important, and our hosts watched and guided with care. I needed help getting back on board after snorkeling, and it was readily available. After a relaxing afternoon, the smell of chocolate cookies made in the galley was enticing, and rum swizzles were most welcome. A little music added to the beach magic. We had a great time with the crew and the other guests!

The excursion was great! Wish they docked at a better location. But overall, it was beyond expectation. I would totally recommend friends and family to check your your site first.
Fun afternoon, friendly crew...………...but we anchored in a cove of sand , waist high water. There was no need of snorkel gear you could look down and easily see your toes. Perhaps it was a safety thing, as there were many older, physically challenged patrons. It was an enjoyable afternoon. Loved the crew !
Reviewer: Brenda Rozwadowski
Wonderful knowledgeable, entertaining and fun crew! I highly recommend this excursion.
Reviewer: Linda McDevitt
We enjoyed the smaller group on this excursion. The crew was very friendly and gave us great information and guidance. Great for swimming, paddle boarding, kayaking and cliff jumping. The snorkeling was a bit tough as there were lots of people swimming close by. We had a blast!
Reviewer: Lynne W.
My family enjoyed the snorkel trip from Restless Native. It was a beautiful day and the catamaran and crew were great! Would have loved to see more fish, but the water was perfect and we had a great time anyway!
We had a nice time. Just don’t sit right next to the bathroom. Horrible!!!
Reviewer: Debbi Sager
This was my 2nd venture out on the Reckless Native... great crew, terrific snorkeling, wonderful cookies & punch. New ladder made getting into & out of the water a snap for this old lady! Highly recommend!
Reviewer: Shannon Hall
Awesome day! Would recommend this excursion to everyone
The cruise was everything a vacationer would want it to be - fun and relaxing where you could do as much or little as you want. My 22 yr old son and I snorkeled the reefs, tried paddle boarding, kayaked and then floated around the gorgeous cove setting while sipping on their homemade specialty made in gigantic glass jugs - Rum Swizzles. They were free flowing and delicious and the cookies were as well. The crew was friendly and informative. It was a great excursion for the two of us to do and anyone in our span of age ranges. Plus, a portion of the proceeds went towards breast cancer!

best time eva,,loved all of it... p.s.sorry about dropping batch of cookies .....i'm so glad you made more...
Reviewer: Sally Vellon
We had a fantastic snorkel trip with Restless Natives. Great spot with lots of fish for all levels of experience. Also, the rum swizzle and fresh baked cookies were tasty.
Reviewer: Anne Felch
This was the absolute best excursion my family went on. Everyone had so much fun whether they were snorkeling, jumping off the cliff into the water, or drinking rum swizzles on the catamaran. Workers were great! It was a time to remember by all!
Reviewer: Mary Ann Rohrbaugh
This was our first time in Bermuda. We loved this excursion. The were very friendly. We learned a lot about the island on the way to our destination. Being natives to Bermuda they told us about life there. The snorkling was great with good instruction. You could kayak or paddle board. Would do this again. Beverages and hot cookies to snack on.
It was a fantastic time! It was a short sail over but once there we were able to swim, snorkel, paddleboard (or at least attempt to lol), cliff jumping (decided against) and kayaking. The weather was beautiful. The water was a bit cool but such a beautiful blue! Would definitely do it again! Plus they made cookies after so that was a nice little treat as well.
We only have good things to say about our adventure. The men in charged were professional but made the trip fun. The price was less than booking through the cruise and the time line was manageable. I will do this trip the next time we cruise to Bermuda.
Reviewer: Margaret Kroitor
This is a must-do! The staff were fantastic. We had a long time to swim, snorkel, kayak, stand-up paddle-board, or just relax onboard. Free water and pineapple juice during the whole excursion and free rum swizzles after the snorkel, as well as fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies - no limits on any of the above.
Reviewer: Edward Temple
This was a fun excursion. The included kayaks and paddle boards was fun and entertaining. So were the drinks and cookies provided. The snorkeling was mediocre, at best. We did not encounter a wide variety of fish. The adventure should be advertised as a "relaxed, fun-filled trip with the following activities::::"
Nice trip with a very nice story of its history. Took my wife, in-laws and daughter. My daughter never snorkeled before. She felt safe and loved it. They had everything available. Kayaks, boarding, snorkeling and drinks.
Had so much fun!
Reviewer: Carleen Martorana
We went out on the Restless Native and had the best time ever. We were 9 Adults and 10 kids, and the crew was absolutely wonderful. In addition to the snorkel equip they had a kayak and 2 paddle boards. My grandson learned to paddle a kayak as a break from the snorkeling. He's 7. We also did cliff jumping which was pretty cool. The rum swizzles were delicious and the homemade cookies kept flowing. On the way back to the wharf, the kids sitting on the outside of the catamaran encountered a swimming turtle. They were so excited. A great time was had by all. I would highly recommend this trip, it was a real winner.
Reviewer: Leigh Terzo
The owner and staff were so professional and helpful we were under the impression we would receive one free drink but it turned out we were served all our drinks for free. The vessel was clean and equipped with all the annemites need to make our excursion perfect. The cove we were taken too was absolutely beautiful it was a perfect day, we did not need our tickets though board.
Reviewer: Valeri Morone
I went on this snorkeling cruise with my 15 year old daughter. Neither of us had snorkeled before and this crew was very helpful in that regard, and furthermore they were also pleasant and entertaining. We were very happy that we chose this provider we recommend them highly.
Reviewer: Debbie Encell
We read all the reviews before purchasing the excursion. Crew was great....met our expectation! Swizzlers were plenty for everyone to enjoy. Homemade cookies were ok but a nice touch. Will do this excursion again on our next trip back to Bermuda! Thanks fellas!
Reviewer: James Dolinger
Definitely a must when visiting Bermuda. The crew was fantastic, very knowledgeable about Bermuda. After a short ride they anchored at a cove with a small secluded beach for 2 hours of snorkeling. A staircase dropped out of the middle of the boat to give easy access to and from the water. The water at that point was only 4-5 feet deep again easing you into the sea.The crew assisted with kayaks, paddleboards and Rum Swizzles. A truly great experience.
Reviewer: Susan Percy
My family of 5 LOVED this! The guys on the boat were awesome. Helpful and friendly. There were so many water activities to do none of my young adult children were bored. My husband especially loved Kia that they had with them. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour. Great value for the price and the rum swizzle's and chocolate chip cookies were delicious
Reviewer: Sharon Magner
Best excursion we've enjoyed to date! Crew was friendly and knowledgeable! Rum Swizzles and cookies go well together! � The perfect adventure for this family of 4 (kids are 15 and 16). We enjoyed snorkeling, cliff jumping, SUP and kayaking! Thank you for a wonderful afternoon of memories in Bermuda! We were there Wed 7/19. Would book with this tour again and again.
Reviewer: Benjamin Smith
We are so glad we Restless Native for our excursion. We booked through ShoreExcursionsGroup and saved 40% off the price the Cruise Ship was offering. Because the ship stays in Bermuda we didn't have to worry about not getting back in time. The excursion itself was great, the crew was very friendly, and the cookies and rum swizzle were delicious!!!
Reviewer: Riz Somji
Overall the whole experience was great. I took my wife and two kids (age 6 and 1.5). Location was great. Crew did a super job of entertaining us and providing us with everything we needed to make it an enjoyable experience. Only thing was on the way back it turned into a drunk fest and quite a few drunks tripping over things. One drunk father knocked drinks all over my and my sleeping child without an apology!
Reviewer: Marilyn Garland
Met up with couple close to the ship, catamaran was a short distance from meeting place. Very friendly group. Snorkeling was awsome. When we all got back from snorkeling, kyaking and the stand up paddle board, they made some warm chocolate chip cookies,yum, and free rum drinks. Only thing I was not happy with when entering the water there was no railing to hold on to. Otherwise great time. It was nice to be able to enjoy the kayak and paddle board along with the snorkeling.
Very enjoyable & very knowledgeable! I recommend this excursion to everyone. Drinks & fresh baked cookies made it even more enjoyable & $1.00 of every ticket sold goes to help fighting breast cancer. How could you not like this?!!
Reviewer: Robin Wellet
There were 5 of us from age 13 to 75 and we all had a fabulous time. The crew was VERY attentive to our every need and they were right there to help us on and off the boat when we were anchored. The warm cookies and rum punch were not bad either!
This is a terrific excursion. Not only do they have snorkel gear but also a couple of kayaks as well as a couple paddle boards. Additionally, Zander is a native of Bermuda and has some great knowledge he to share. Lastly, the homemade cookies and Rum Swizzles are awesome
Reviewer: Sara Derick
This was the perfect excursion for my family of 4. We have a 6 and 8 year old and it was great for them. My husband and I enjoyed floating and snorkeling leisurely while our kids checked out the kayak and paddleboard. There was plenty of time to relax and the boat ride itself was wonderful. Our hosts were friendly and knowledgable. Highly recommend!
Reviewer: Misty Brexel
From the start this was a great experience. We were met at the dock and taken to the catamaran where we were told what to expect. The crew was very nice and funny and made the day a great one. We went to a beautiful spot where we could snorkel, kayak, swim, cliff dive, paddle board or swim. It was amazing. The spot was not crowded and the staff made sure we had everything we needed to get the most out of the day. I told everyone I could that if they ever went to Bermuda, this was something they absolutely had to do!
Reviewer: Michael cappa
We had a great time. Boat was clean and staff were nice.
Reviewer: Joan Patriakeas
The crew was wonderful! They were fun while remaining focused on safety. The area we went to was beautiful. We loved the options onboard (snorkeling, kyaking and paddle boarding) as well as the beverages and cookies on the way back. A nice touch- well worth the expense! I would highly recommend.
Reviewer: Neal Pratt
I researched all available catamaran excursions before selecting this one. Very happy with my choice. My wife, 2 teenage kids and I had a great time. Great crew, great service, and a great excursion!!
This excursion was great! The tour guide was very informative and knowledgeable about Bermuda and shared a ton of fun facts. When arriving to the cove everything was great, loved paddle boarding and snorkeling. Rum swizzles and cookies are always a plus!
Catamaran excursion was wonderful - crew was great. Highly recommend this one!!!
The catamaran was well kept and looked great. The captain told stories of Bermuda and answered any random questions his guest had while we sailed. The equipment he provided was all in excellent condition, well cleaned and cared for. While we were in the water the captain kept an eye on all his guests to ensure everyone's safety. Made me feel secure knowing that he was watching my teenagers swim and play while my husband and I went off snorkeling around the tiny island he anchored us next too. Safety was really his first priority and he did a great job. The snorkeling was not as vibrant as I had hoped for. Saw some pretty fish and some purple fan coral, but not much. Back on the catamaran we had small, warm chocolate chip cookies and many rounds of the delicious traditional Rum Swizzle drinks on our trip back to the cruise ship. BEST adventure of the cruise. It's not easy pleasing 3 teenagers at once, but this excursion pulled it off! Would definitely recommend this trip!
Reviewer: Paul Taylor
Suitable for the whole family friendly crew nice boat great tunes if you are a more advanced snorkeler you should look for boats that take you out deeper to wrecks in the area. on a later scuba dive I was on, a boat showed up with a group of snorkelers at the same wreck we were diving.
Worth the money, great excursion, fun along with history of Bermuda!
Reviewer: Shirley Jacques
I so enjoyed this excursion. Kayaking in the aquamarine water was such a beautiful experience. I'm just sorry I didn't go snorkeling. The catamaran was very clean and the crew was absolutely fantastic. One member baked cookies and served delicious beverages. A memorable experience I shall never forget.
Reviewer: Denise Ross
We had a group of 16 people that went to Bermuda on a cruise. One of the highlights of of vacation was the catamaran tour with Restless Native Tours! It was extremely well run!! We all had a ball!! I highly recommend them!!
Reviewer: Joan O'Neil
This was a great catamaran cruise. Didn't see a lot of fish but you could kayak and standup paddle board. The captain was very informative about Bermuda. It was a lot of fun.
It was a fun excursion and the people that ran it were very informative, fun and friendly. It was a good atmosphere. The trips there and back to shore were very relaxing and the location was very picturesque. Caves and beautiful views. Was a little disappointed in the number of fish we saw but then again that is no ones fault. All in all it was a good day.
This was a fun excursion! The snorkeling was very nice!
We recently stopped in Bermuda with Anthem of the Seas. We booked this excursion from Avoya Travel. The directions were clear as to where to meet up. The start time was prompt and we walked down the pier to get on the catamaran. The catamaran was kept up nicely and had cozy bean bags on the mesh to lounge on. The owner and tour guide (Zander) was informative and very accommodating! We took a 20 minute sail to a secluded snorkel spot. My husband enjoyed the area (coral and fish) and took many GoPro photos. I stayed on board and enjoyed the sun, Caribbean music, and rum swizzles. We would definitely recommend this tour. It was a great value!
I loved the fact that we were in a cove for our snorkeling instead of in the open water. We were able to paddle board and kayak also alittle so that was fun too!
Reviewer: Pink Catamaran
Highly recommend the pink catamaran. Portion goes to breast cancer.
This excursion was the best. The cruise ship excursions were so overcrowded and short in time. This one had far less people and was longer so we didn't feel rushed. The guides were fun and really informative. We snorkeled in the caves, paddle boarded, kayaked, and played in the water. They served rum swizzles and chocolate chip cookies.
Hospitable, knowledgeable, accommodating crew.
Had a great time but the crew wasn't super thrilled to be there. They were nice but they said it was the last time they were going out for the season and you can tell they were ready to go back home. The beach they took us was nice and there were tons of things to do. Snorkeling, swimming, paddle board, kayaking etc
The staff was super friendly and very knowledgeable about the island. The snorkeling was amazing and they offered kayaking and the stand up board too.
Being a landlocked resident, this excursion was a perfect introduction to snokeling and a fun way to learn about the island. Nice, very nice people. Thoroughly enjoyed my time on the pink catamaran!
Very nice excursion people (operators) were great!!!!
Reviewer: Travel Lover!
Had a great time, the staff was very friendly and very informed. The cove was near a couple of small caves you could swim into. beside snorkeling we could also paddle board. You could also climb a rock hill and cliff dive. Very calm water so very relaxing. Free rum drinks after the activities. Great afternoon!
I recommend this excursion to anyone in Bermuda. It was so relaxing, so fun and Zander and his crew where phenomenal hosts. I was with my 2 teenage daughters and we all enjoyed it. There always paddleboarding, snorkeling, kayaking, beach exploring and Zander told us many interesting things about Bermuda.
Our family had a wonderful and relaxing time on this excursion. The guide was extremely knowledgeable about the island and we learned a lot about Bermuda!! The crew was extremely pleasant and attentive to everyone!! They made fresh cookies and had rum swizzles!! Out of three excursions this one was the best and I highly recommended to anyone!!
Was a great time and our guide Zander was fabulous
Super relaxing, plenty of swizzlers to go around.
The Catamaran cruise was well worth the money and the people wer very knowlegeable. We were told a lot of info about the island.
Reviewer: J and J Pearce
Amazing!!! Zander is the catamaran captain and guide, born and raised in bermuda he is extremely knowledgeable. The travel was smooth and fun. the snorkeling spot was clear clean and had loads of fish! The rum swizzle was delicious and he keeps them coming! My husband and I had a fantastic time and would highly recommend this excursion to anyone interested.
I highly recommend Restless Native for your snorkeling adventure while in Bermuda. The catamaran and equipment were in superb condition. Zach, Jonah and Natalie were fun, knowledgeable, and helpful to all; especially those of us with mobility issues. I will recommend Restless Native to everyone!!!
We had so much fun on the Restless Native. The guide was excellent. He was a native to Bermuda so it was great to know about their culture and history. We had rum swizzles after we got to the snorkel area. The coral reef/beaches were beautiful. This shore excursion is definitely worth the money (especially compared to the other excursion). This was our most enjoyable excursion.
Perfect guides are gentle catamaran is new and safe, cookies are good and drinks are drinks! From 7 to 77 years old. Try it if you Never did it.
It was a great little snorkeling trip for beginners and experienced snorkelers! Not tons of fish but the location depends on the weather. The guide was terrific, he added local flavor to the trip and had every piece of equipment needed. After you snorkel he is very accomodating about just letting you swim around and relax before the trip back. Great service provided. If you have never just floated on your noodle and sipped a rum swizzle well you have not experienced paradise! This a nice excursion if you want to just relax, enjoy the beautiful ocean and see some fish!
More than just a catamaran and snorkel trip, paddle boards , noodles, rum drinks and fresh hot Chocolate Chip cookies.
This was a great time, on the way to our Cove, Zander, our Guide, gave us the ""Low Down"" on Bermuda. We Snorkled, Paddle Boarded, went Swimming, searched for shells. Enjoyed the ""Dark & Stormies"". We went on the morning trip which I would recommend, because there were fewer people. The afternoon trip was packed. I Would Recommend this trip to everyone!!!!!
We took the morning excursion which was a great choice since there was a very small group and our guide used that to cater to us even more! The boat ride alone was awesome, throw in the island history and tour, paddle boarding, snorkeling, rum swizzles and there couldn't have been a better combination for an amazing day!
This was such a great experience! The owner of the Catamaran was extremely informative all while adding in humor with history of the island. I would recommend this excursion to anyone! The warm cookies and rum swizzle are the perfect touch!
Reviewer: Hot Grannie
The owner of the catamaran and his crew were so warm and friendly...and made everyone feel comfortable...it was truly a relaxing and pleasant afternoon...we would definitely go back and do it again the next time we are in Bermuda! Thank you to them...!!!
The captain and crew very knowledgeable Courteous And helpful Although the weather was not great to start the crew deviated from the norm and made our day very pleasant. My family enjoyed themselves thanks to Capt Xander and the crew of the Restless Native.
Professional team. I have snorkeled all over the world. This trip was one of my best ones. I saw live corals, all kinds and size of fish. I really liked the fact that there was only about 15 of us on board the catamaran.
Reviewer: the cruiser
I have been on these before, this one was the best Good value for the price
We were a family of 8 adults and 2 children under 4 and it was the greatest experience for all of us because we had never been on a catamaran. The staff was friendly helpful and made us very comfortable.
The guides were excellent - very welcoming, knowledgeable, and well spoken.
Reviewer: Gladys the Explorer
The guide should have used a microphone when she was explaining the history of the Island the security issues before going into the water for snorkeling. We could not hear the explanations clearly (and my husband and I do not have any hearing problems). That is the only thing that we thought it needs to be improved.
Knowledgeable and experienced tour guides, focused on fun with safety. Great experience!
Reviewer: Jim from Boston
The excursion was a lot of fun. We had an experienced guide who has been a resident of Bermuda for many years and knew the details of the island. In addition, we stopped at a remote cove where we saw many tropical fish swimming amongst the coral. All in all, very enjoyable and fun!
Reviewer: Family fun
Travelled with 8 in our group. Great activity for all of us. Gear was clean. Boat was clean. Personal were very friendly and knowledgeable about the island and location. Saw a lot of beautiful fish and coral. Great family fun.
Reviewer: Melissa L.
Loved this excursion! Staff was very friendly & informative! So much fun! Our best day in Bermuda!
Reviewer: NH Travelers
It was a windy day so we had to share the water with a competitor. The problem was not the additional people, the problem was they were wearing flippers and not only was that scaring the fish, my husband was kicked in the head by a man wearing flippers. Worse, the person did not even stop to see who/what he had hit. Your staff was wonderful as were the rum swizzles!!
Guides were very experienced and friendly. Received unlimited complimentary rum punches and a lot of information on the island. Only cons is there weren't a lot if fish to see while snorkeling but I got to go into caves and collect sea glass!
THe crew of the catamaran were informative, very friendly & took great care of us. They even served warm chocolate chip cookies! Good Value
Reviewer: Traveler Jim
they were fantastic. polite, knowledgeable, so worth the money. dont regret going for a second. well worth the time and money.
Reviewer: Nev. sailor
Very enjoyable trip. Loved sailing through islands. Knowledgable and competent captain and crew. Very low keyed and friendly. Wonderful scenery. The snorkeling was OK but visibility was marginal. The reefs close in are mediocre at best. But then I'm spoiled by previous experiences. All told, I would highly recommend this trip. Great value for the money!
This was absolutely the highlight of our trip! The crew were great snd made it a great experience for all! We had teenagers with us too - and they're usually bored with everything! But they LOVED this!
Had a great time and would recommend over and over again!
Reviewer: Frequent cruisers
We were very pleased with this excursion. There were only about 20-25 people on board the catamaran which made for a very comfortable trip.
This was so great. I'm too afraid to actually snorkel so i didn't i jsut stayed on the catamaran, but one of the guides gave me crackers to throw at the fish and theyd just up out of the water fighting over it, which was cool. my boyfiend snorkeled though, he said it was his favorite part of our vacation. we were on ncl, and booked this seperately and it was not only cheaper than the ncl catamaran/snorkel but it was also soo much less crowded. the day we signed up for was ful so they asked us to go the next day, and there were only 10 of us. it was so nice. the guides were great theyre bermuda natives so that was cool. it was so pretty. it was beginning of may though so the water was cold.
Everything was perfect, lucky enough to have a group of 12 only, another one going out was so full you could not move on it.
we really enjoyed this snorkel cruise. The crew were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We anchored at a great spot and they gave us plenty of time to snorkel and walk on the small beach. They served us delicious warm cookies! I was part of a family group of ten and we all loved it!
Reviewer: Chickens mom
Loved this excursion!!!! Learned sooooo much about Bermuda! Saw things that I never would have otherwise! Will do this one again!!!
Overall friendly and fun crew! Learned a lot about Bermuda on the way to the snorkel site! Great fun!
The best part was not having to deal with a huge cruise ship crowd. We loved the personal service and the warm cookies and lemonade!
