Visitors' Reviews and Comments

Denise Natale (August 2016) 
I took your Aristocat snorkeling tour Monday, August 15, 2016. The weather was not good for sailing (no wind), but it was terrific for snorkeling. The captain and crew were very knowledgeable about all things Bermuda (in the sea and out) as well as being entertaining. We cruised out about 4 miles from shore and dropped anchor in a sandy area surrounded by coral reef.  
The crew pointed out that they do NOT bait the fish and if we wanted to see any, we would have to be quiet swimmers. This is the ONLY way to observe the reef in my humble opinion. We were able to watch the fish and the coral going about their daily routine as we swam above them for an hour. The water was warm, the reef was breathtaking, alive and amazing. Thank you for an excellent 10-star tour!
