Bermuda Boat Tours
As you cruise along, you get a marvelous view of the coastline. Most of the tours take you to places where you see some spectacular corals, amazing shipwrecks, and great Atlantic marine life through glass bottom view.
Some of the boating and sailing tours in Bermuda also offer you water sports activities combined with the tours. Some take you to fantastic reef & wreck snorkeling areas, others arrange for kayaks, jetski and more.
There are others who provide live commentary telling you about the island and its history as you pass by some historic landmarks. And there are sailing tours that show you Bermuda's colonial and celebrity homes along the shoreline.
There is also a service offered on an Amphibian Vehicle which is a combination of a bus and a boat. The vehicle has been designed to move on road and can also sail on water like a boat. It shows you sights from both water and land, and you get best of both the worlds.
May through November, a magical spectacle takes place over the sea surface in the dark. On specific nights, the fire worms of Bermuda go around dancing in circles over the ocean while releasing intense green glow.
The whole water area lights up offering a magical experience. There are organized cruise tours for witnessing this. To know about this spectacular dancing display unique to Bermuda and the cruise tour, check out Bermuda Glow Worms.
Glass Bottom Views - Bermuda
During our many island vacations in Bermuda, we had gone around to find out the operators who run regular sailing and boating tours in the island. The regular boat tours are essentially for sightseeing and glass bottom views and work on a per-person rate. However, there are several charter boat options as well that offer privacy & flexibility.
The boats are usually between 30 to 60-foot long, and most can carry up to 30 persons and are often motorized sailing boats. Of course there are few sailing boats that have much larger capacity of about 200 or even more. And some operators offer catamarans as well.
Several boat operators advertise year-round operations, but the off-season (Nov - Mar) schedules of boat tours in Bermuda can be quite irregular. Captains usually use this off-season period for maintenance and repair work, or close the operation altogether if bookings are low.
