If you are looking for some great scenic views from Bermuda waters, plus lots of information about the island, and also plus glass bottom views of marine life in Atlantic, Aquatic Bermuda can be a great option. It has an operation out of hotel Fairmont Southampton.
A vacation in Bermuda is never complete unless you have experienced a boating tour. In Fantasea, you get a number of options. You have a choice of a catamaran tour on a 55-foor long Aristocat. You can then choose a tour for sailing, sightseeing or even snorkeling. The second option is the glass bottom boat tour on Looking Glass. Another option is the Eco tours on Eco Xpress.
Operating from Fairmont Southampton Resort, this operator offers organized Jet Ski tours and also wake boarding, water ski, tubes and boat rentals.
This is a PADI 5-Star IDC facility and operates from some of the Bermuda hotel complexes including Fairmont Southampton. This is Bermuda’s one of the few land-based operations to offer scuba diving for both North and South shore wrecks and reef sites.
This is another PADI 5-Star IDC facility and Bermuda’s longest running dive operation. It gives you great access to Bermuda’s exciting wrecks and pristine reefs.

The part of the Railway Trail
that passes through Southampton is a lovely scenic stretch. It's a great trail for running, walking and cycling. The trail goes mostly through dense woodland areas full with spice trees. The trail cuts through the property of Fairmont Southampton Hotel and also goes below the Gibbs Hill Lighthouse
before leading towards a rural stretch in Sandy's.
Children's and Kids Activities
Death Valley Field and Playground is a park located on Middle Road, opposite Terceira’s Port Royal Esso Station. It's maintained by the Parks Department. Such unfortunate name has been given to this nice park because many motor drivers lost their lives on the busy Middle Road near this playground in 1940s and 1950s. There are slides, swings and playing structures for children. You will also find picnic tables and shaded benches, and a large playing field just adjacent to this park. There is no public toilets though. Enough parking is available.
