Guided Kayak Adventure Tour in Bermuda
This tour operates from the dockyard at the western end and therefore quite convenient for the cruise ship passengers. You will be first taken to a beach site by a short boat shuttle. While cruising you will see the rural areas of Bermuda and the on-board guide will provide running commentary of the places you pass by. Along the way you will see a partially submerged shipwreck - MS Vixen.
Once you reach the beautiful beach site, the guide will first give you safety instructions and a life jacket. The kayaks used are all double seaters and have glass bottom panels so that you can also view the beautiful underwater corals and colorful marine life through the glass panel below your feet.
Depending on the weather the guide chooses a course for the kayak. Usually it is along the western coast line. Along the way, you will come across many rock formations on the coast, see tiny uninhabited islands, secluded beaches, coves & caves and enjoy the bird life. The guide will all along explain the landmarks you are passing by. In fact you will also see several homes of the rich and famous.
At some places the guide will ask you to look below through the glass panel. Other than corals and fish, if you are lucky you can even see many green turtles.
Once back, you can enjoy a swim by the beachside and have complimentary soft drinks.
