Take a self-guided tour of the Bermuda Undercover Exploration Institution or the BUEI, where you can learn about the diverse plant and animal life living in the oceans across the world. Visit the famous Crystal Caves, Bermuda's historic and oldest treasure, where you will get to see ancient rock formations.

Set off for a scenic drive along Bermuda's South Coast. Pass iconic landmarks and attractions like the Bermuda Botanical Gardens and the iconic Gibb's Hill Lighthouse, a historic 19th century lighthouse that continues to work today. Your first stop takes you to the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute or BUEI. Enjoy spending approximately an hour in this 40,000-square foot facility as you go on a self-guided tour to discover a variety of sea creatures and marine plants from around the world.

After exploring the BUEI, it's now time to see famous Crystal Caves, one of Bermuda's oldest attractions. This guided tour takes you into the caves that were discovered in the early 1900s and were believed to be formed during the Ice Age. See an underground lake that descends 55 feet deep, featuring stalactites and helictites emerging from the water and admire the glistening white stalactites extending from the cave's ceiling before returning to your port.

From exploring the Crystal Caves to viewing one of the largest shell collections in the world, this self-guided tour offers a family-friendly experience for an unforgettable experience in Bermuda.
