Catamaran Sailing with Watersports
The Rising Son II from Charter Bermuda is a beautiful, 60-foot, 80-person capacity catamaran with a full bar. Besides offering sailing, swimming, and snorkeling trips, Charter Bermuda captain William Evans and the friendly crew can arrange for several other watersport activities as well while on the sailing tour. They organize regular group tours on per person rates. Private charters are also available.
If you like, you can spend part of the day on jet skis, in kayaks, or with a para-sailing outfitter. Otherwise, the Charter Bermuda captain usually prefers sailing around the coastal waters and letting you enjoy the magnificent views of Bermuda's coastline. Complimentary non alcoholic beverages and a rum swizzle is offered on board. There is a cash bar and you can indulge in cocktails and spirits if you so wish. They claim to offer the cheapest Corona beer in the island.
One of the popular cruises on Rising Son II is the Turtle Bay Beach Trip. The boat cruises through the Great Sound
water area for about an hour, and then over a turtle sanctuary before anchoring off a quiet sandy bay for snorkeling and kayaking. After a brief instruction, you can swim up to the nearby beach or sand bar. Optionally you can take a Standup Paddle board and go around the water area.
There is no running audio commentary broadcasted on this trip, rather a music is played. They just let you relax and enjoy the sail and the water sport activities. Just in case you are interested, complimentary wi-fi is also available on board.
