Lazing on amazing pink-sand beaches; snorkeling through clear blue waters; sailing on a luxury catamaran with a tropical drink in hand; pub crawling in Hamilton—these are just a few of the Bermuda shore excursions you can schedule when your port of call is King’s Wharf.
Bermuda cruise excursions that combine activities like sightseeing and beach trips are perfect ways to appreciate the history, culture, and natural beauty of the island. Take a guided tour the entire length of the island, then spend time relaxing on a beach chaise. Stroll a 12-acre nature reserve with walking trails and spectacular views of Castle Harbor.
Sightsee in high tech style on a Segway tour of the Royal Naval Dockyard (also known as King’s Wharf, where your cruise ship is docked), that includes the Victualling Yard, center of naval operations, Casemates Prison, and the Clocktower Mall and shops.
Book one of the most popular Bermuda shore excursions: Board a sleek and spacious catamaran, one of the largest and most luxurious in all of Bermuda, which sails to a protected cove, where you can swim or snorkel, and enjoy splashing around in calm, clear water, and wiggling your toes in that iconic pink sand. Stop for an ice cream treat at one of the best sweet spots on the island.
There’s no shortage of fabulous food finds on Bermuda, and when you book a culinary tour with guest chef Bryan Voltaggio, a James Beard Award-nominee and “Top Chef” finalist, who’s partnered with a renowned Bermuda chef, you’ll be treated to a visit to the island’s only organic farm with behind the scenes glimpses of the farm’s animal housings and greenhouses. And, your instructors will prepare Bermudian feast, using seasonal farm-fresh ingredients, for an unforgettable farm-to-table experience.
Enjoy an afternoon of sightseeing with a trip to Haydon Trust Park and Chapel, a lovely acreage of lush gardens, which houses 10 old buildings, including the smallest chapel on the island, dating back to the 1620s, and Somerset Bridge, the world’s smallest drawbridge. Conclude your sightseeing adventure with a very proper, very British afternoon tea that includes tea sandwiches, scones and teacakes.
Family-friendly Bermuda shore excursions include swim-with-dolphins fun and games; glass-bottom boat trips that show off the undersea world of tropical fish, sea grass, and even a shipwreck; and a crystal caves exploration, complete with stalagmites and stalactites, in tandem with a visit to the island’s aquarium, museum, and zoo.
