The variety of Royal Naval Dockyard Bermuda shore excursions are in lockstep with what cruise passengers want when cruising to the lovely island of Bermuda. Disembarking passengers are presented with a wealth of options for activities that can start right at the port itself, officially known as Royal Naval Dockyard. Located at the very western tip of Bermuda, the port has been developed over time to include the National Museum of Bermuda, a shopping mall, a host of restaurants and pubs, and even a manmade beach.
Bermuda is renowned for its pink sand beaches and it’s equally well-known for an abundance of watersport activities. On Royal Naval Dockyard, Bermuda tours featuring watersports, you’re sure to find one that’s perfectly suited to you, whether you’re looking for a family-friendly outing like swimming with dolphins, scuba diving or hopping onboard a cruiser to reef fish for snapper or triggerfish.
Looking for active adventures? Royal Naval Dockyard shore excursions offer the cruising adventurer nature hikes on the Railway Trail, cross-island expedition to the island’s only jungle, complete with cliff-jumping and dry cave explorations, and the opportunity to play 18-holes on the world-famous Par 3 course at the Turtle Hill Golf Club, at the Fairmont Princess Southampton.
If relaxing on that famous pink sand beach and seriously working on your tan is more your style, hop a bus port-side to enjoy sun-time at Horseshoe Bay, a lovely beach with amenities like hammock rentals and water toys, and concession stands for water and soft drinks.
Love to sail? Book a sailing excursion, available day or evening, on catamarans, high speed boats, or luxury yachts. Each offers the thrill of the sea and the opportunity to chill out, and sip cocktails while gliding over clear turquoise waters.
There are several land-based Royal Naval Dockyard shore excursions for sightseeing adventures that take you to the oldest English town in the New World, or to view the homes of the rich and famous, or a minibus tour that takes in the historic town of St. George’s and the capital city of Hamilton.
For just plain fun, go high-tech, riding a Segway on a tour of the Royal Naval Dockyard or go high tea on an excursion that offers a glimpse into the days of British Colonialism, and concludes with tea service, complete with sandwiches and scones with clotted cream. And, Front Street, Hamilton’s weekly party night offers island street food, music, and shopping.
