Quick 2-Tank Dive in Bermuda

I may be coming on a cruise with some friends and would like to do a dive. The ship docks in Kings Wharf at 10am and leaves the following day at 2pm. Any chance of getting a 2-tank dive in the period of time?  
Thanks for your reply.

Hi, You may just be able to make it on the day when your cruise ship docks at the Kings Wharf. The second day will be risky. But you will probably need to rush out of the cruise ship as soon as it docks and head for Hamilton City immediately. Take a direct ferry from the dockyard, that's the fastest (takes about 25 minutes). 
There is a dive center called Dive Bermuda with PADI 5 star facilities that has an operation from the Fairmont Hamilton Princess Hotel located at Pitt's Bay road in Hamilton City. They offer a 2-tank dive daily during the summer season leaving at noon time. 
I would strongly recommend that you call them up in advance and find out their current schedule as well as booking formalities. 
Here is a link with all their details: Dive Bermuda 
Hope this helps.

My boyfriend and I are going on a cruise in July to spend three days in Bermuda. We would like to find a Half day trip for scuba diving to see all Of the sea life and ship wreaks. We are going to be located at King Wharf island and wanted to know what scuba diving locations and companies are the best ones. We also wanted to know if we can get our discovery scuba training before we leave or if we should wait until we arrive at Bermuda.  
Also I have ear problems and cant go past most like 20 fit under or the pressure in my ears become to painful, do you know any scuba diving excursions that would be only 20 feet? Or lower? 
Sorry for the long message I look forward hearing from you !!

Hi Sarah, 
Since your cruise ship will be docking at the Kings Wharf, a convenient dive operator would be the Blue Water Divers. They are the longest PADI operation in the island. They have a dive center at Somerset Bridge (at Robinson's Marina) which is about 10 minutes by bus from the dockyard. Bus #7 and 8 have stops right at the dockyard and you can take either of them to reach the dive center. 
The afternoon 1-tank dive that starts at 1:30pm usually takes the divers to shallow wrecks and reefs. There are plenty of shallow wrecks at the western end of Bermuda. By the way, just to let you know that Kings Wharf is not an island. It's a berth or a pier where the cruise ship docks and located at the Royal Naval Dockyard. The dockyard is located at the western end of the island in a parish known as Sandys. 
I suggest that you call up Blue Water Divers or write to them to get details about dives and courses offered by them currently. You will get their contacts here: 
Hope this helps. Have a great time in Bermuda.
