Great tour!
Nov 2019 • Family
We came to Bermuda on a cruise and had booked this tour through TrioAdvisor in advance. Booking was easy. The meet up location was easy to find and our tour guides were very knowledgeable. The group was small (total of 7) so we were able to ask lots of questions and get individualized attention. Well-spent day!!

Great trip!
Aug 2019 • Family
We had a great trip with Zoe, Kensie, and Ritz! All 3 were very knowledgeable about Bermuda! During the glass bottom portion, we saw many fish and coral. We did some snorkeling and saw 3 different types of fish and some coral. The tour allows for shallow water relaxation or swimming in deeper areas. The water was so refreshing!

A GREAT FAMILY ADVENTURE with ZOE, KENSIE, AND RITZ!
Jul 2019 • Family
Our inter-generational family of 8 with three young children had an absolutely fabulous time on the glass bottom boat and snorkel in Bermuda! The team on board —Zoe, Kensie, and Ritz — were remarkably patient and kind as our young cruisers asked them all sorts of questions. The snorkeling was done in a beautiful shallow cove that led to a short little beach. We had a fabulously unforgettable time! I highly recommend this excursion!

Chilly water and fish aren’t colourful
I chose this tour because my husband can’t swim. I was excited about him being able to see the marine life without getting into the water. I was so excited to go snorkeling as well, expecting to see beautiful colourful fish that I’ve experienced before when snorkeling in the Caribbean. The glass bottom did give everyone the opportunity to see hundreds of fish and also the shipwreck vixen, which was really neat. Unfortunately, the fish were greys and browns. The captain docked in a beautiful cove with a private beach close by that you were not allowed to go on because the owners had guard dogs. As people were getting in the water, they were complaining that the water was cold, so I just jumped in to start my snorkeling adventure. I didn’t see one fish. That doesn’t mean anyone else didn’t. I did see one piece of brain coral. To sum this up, I should’ve did my homework on the type of local fish in Bermuda. The tour was fine, but not what I expected. We also saw some turtles on the ride back, which the captain pointed out to us. I would recommend the glass bottom boat tour, but not snorkeling.

Big disappointment
Jun 2018 • Family
Recently cruised to Bermuda and booked this tour, although the gentlemen on the boat were pleasant and entertaining the area they took us was way too shallow. I have snorkeled before and this was definitely the worst experience I have had. At certain spots I had to get up and walk because it was too shallow. Many large rock also hindered my swimming and at least 2 people on the boat needed bandaids from the barnacles on the rocks which we were warned about but they were hard to avoid. I also understand these gentlemen are out to make money and who isn't but I feel too many people on the tour and in the water at the same time kicking up sand and making it hard to see, I only saw one tiny fish. The glass bottom portion of the boat was also disappointing, they ended up throwing bread off the side of the boat and a bunch of fish came to eat it. gray plain fish, not pretty tropical fish. Sorry gentlemen but this was a big rip off.

Snorkel Adventures in Bermuda
We spend a lovely afternoon on our glass bottom and snorkeling adventure. I especially enjoyed Clive’s commentary when we visited the shipwreck. I would recommend this as a good outing for families and beginner snorkelers like myself. A sunny boat ride, turtles, a shipwreck and snorkeling who could ask for more.

Fun, Fun and More FUN!
Oct 2017 • Family
It was our first family cruise and snorkeling trip. The crew was fantastic and made the excursion great. Very informative and relaxing. Although the conditions were not ideal (not the crews fault, mother nature decided on a "King Tide" that week) we had a wonderful time. The crew was very attentive and the crew member on the mike was hilarious. His demeanor and knowledge absolutely made the trip worthwhile. In addition to the shipwreck, we snorkeled (First-timers, all of us) and on the trip back they even took us for a small sight seeing tour along the turtle area pointing out some landmarks along the way. Definitely on our to-do list the next time we visit... we will be booking with these guys!
