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 the sites that will give you the best experience.
Your first stop will be at a sheltered island, where 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. This stop is approximately 30 minutes.
After a relaxing cruise to the outer reef, you will be ready for a great experience snorkeling 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. This stop is approximately 45 minutes.
To make your adventure complete, you will love the final snorkel on a beautiful coral reef/sea garden. View different types of coral that nature has sculptured over the years, which will make you feel like you are visiting a tropical underwater paradise complemented by several species of colorful fish, sea fans, sea rods and brain coral. This stop is approximately 40 minutes. Water and soda are available for sale onboard.
This tour is very popular and space is limited, so book early to avoid disappointment.

The crew was knowledgable and friendly. Love the free rum drinks too. Great snorkeling and fun boat ride to where ship wrecks were located. Would recommend this trip to all. There 7 in our party and the boat held about 18 people. Would highly recommend to anyone.
Great guides who obviously enjoyed what they were doing. Well informed, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about underwater activities in which they participated for their own recreation.
Reviewer: Two for fun
the guide was attentive to everyone's needs in that we were a small group but had a variety of experience levels. The best way to snorkel is in a small group away from the crowds. This trip allowed for this to happen.
This excursion was excellent. My 9 year old daughter and I really enjoyed ourselves. We went snorkeling in a calm area first before going to a nicer reef in choppier water. My daughter was a bit nervous at the second stop, so the guide told me to enjoy myself and got her in the water to enjoy the fish and reef. The value was excellent. I could not ask for anything more!
Loved the small group. Very knowledgeable about Bermuda.
