Dear Raj, I will be in Bermuda on cruise from Sunday afternoon June 21, 2015 (about 3:00 pm) until departure at about 6:00 pm on Tuesday, June 23. I am considering going diving with Dive Bermuda located at the Southampton Princess on Monday and Tuesday. I need to be at the dive shop at 8:00 am each morning. Can I do this by bus. I will not be carrying heavy or wet dive gear.

Hi, Bus #7 which goes close to the dive shop in Southampton doesn't operate from the dockyard until 8:20am. Alternatively you can take bus #8 (6:35am) and get off at the stop nearest to Fairmont Southampton (ask the driver) and walk for about a mile to Dive Bermuda.
