Best Bermuda Snorkel Adventure

When it comes to snorkel tours in Bermuda, this small group, two-stop snorkel adventure leaves the others gasping for breath.

To begin with, your boat is not your average marine viewing vessel. It is a 31-foot rib glass-bottom boat which holds no more than 16 guests per departure. This allows you to travel faster than the large traditional boats, giving you more time at the snorkel stops. Depending on the weather and sea conditions that day, your captain will choose two out of three amazing snorkel sites that will give you the best experience: a sheltered island, a shipwreck, or coral reef. The first snorkel stop is approximately 30 minutes, and the second stop is approximately 45 minutes.

If you visit the sheltered island, novice snorkelers will put on the included snorkel gear and be taught and accompanied by a crew member in shallow water, while experienced snorkelers can plunge in and snorkel around the little island.

Your captain may take you to snorkel in the crystal-clear waters over an ancient shipwreck. Usually, the snorkeling is over the "Constellation" and "Montana" sunk in the 1800s and early 1900s. This snorkeling area is popular with locals and scuba divers.

If you snorkel over a coral reef, you'll view different types of coral that nature has sculptured over the years. You'll feel like you are visiting a tropical underwater paradise complemented by several species of colorful fish, sea fans, sea rods and brain coral.

This tour is very popular and space is limited, so book early to avoid disappointment.

I highly recommend this excursion. The captain was very informative and took us to some great snorkeling. Saw some awesome fish and shipwrecks. The boat size was perfect too as we were able to get to the sites faster. Very enjoyable and would definitely do it again!

Fun experience. In addition to snorkeling we got to see sea turtles and cliff jump off of a Red Bull event location in the middle of the ocean. Clive Hook is an excellent, knowledgeable captain!

We had a local Bermudian 'Captain Hook' to take us around to some wonderful spots to snorkel! He also took us to see a bunch of sea turtles which wasn't part of the excursion! He went above and beyon! Was a great experience - highly recommend!

Exactly What I Was Hoping For!
August 21, 2017
I recently took my first cruise. I booked this excursion because it only allowed 16 guests on the boat and took you to 3 different snorkeling locations. I read the reviews and it sounded exactly like what I was looking for. I wanted to be small group so it would be more personal. It was all that and more. Our captain Lance was fantastic. He knew so much about the island and was so personable. He really made the trip that much more fun. We did snorkel at a few locations and saw a lot of sea turtles! Our final location was a cove where captain Lance and his first mate dropped the anchor and let us dive, jump and swim off the boat. We were then treated to complimentary rum swizzles. They are my new favorite drink! We were a group of 6 ranging in age from 12-73. We ALL loved it! I recommend this excursion!
