Water Activities In Bermuda

One of the best places to experience Bermuda is out on the water, and there are endless ways to spend your time.

If you’re looking for loads of action, book a fishing charter and spend a day out trawling Bermuda’s waters for game fish, such as tuna, wahoo and marlin. For endless fun and an exciting way to see the island, hop on a Jet Ski or high-speed boat tour, get vertical on a flyboard, test your skills windsurfing or kiteboarding, or take in the view from above on a parasail. If you like the idea of something a bit more relaxed but that takes some muscle power, rent a kayak or try your balance out on a stand-up paddleboard. For those who want a more personalised watersports experience, you can even charter a boat.

Of course, there is plenty to do under the water as well, and Bermuda’s underwater seascape is filled with coral reefs, diverse marine life and a fair share of shipwrecks — and some unique ways to explore them.

There are places to snorkel near shore and several beach concessions rent out gear; or hop aboard a boat for a snorkel tour. Underwater purists can always suit up in snorkel gear and dive straight in to discover some of the spectacular sights. You can snorkel just about anywhere in Bermuda. All you need is a mask, fins and a snorkel, and you’re ready to go, since almost any beach is bound to have something to see. All of Bermuda sits on the edge of an ancient volcano, whose peaks and ridges have evolved into magnificent coral reefs. Some of the best places to snorkel include Church Bay in Southampton Parish, and Black Bay Beach, Snorkel Park Beach and Somerset Long Bay in Sandys Parish. In the East End, you can snorkel from a protected, tranquil beach at Tobacco Bay in St. George’s.

Scuba diving offers a unique opportunity to view the island’s underwater bounty and the creatures that inhabit its surrounding waters. And with more than 500 years of maritime mishaps on the surrounding reefs, Bermuda holds more than 400 shipwrecks in its waters. Most popular sites are at a depth of 30 to 50 feet and can be easily reached by boat or with an operator. The best months to dive are May to October, since the temperature will be warmest at that time. In the winter, you may need cold-water wetsuits.

There’s so much to explore in Bermuda. Want to experience it all as the locals do? Here are our picks for the best places to take a tour.
