If you're looking for a fun day on the water, let the friendly staff at Blue Hole Water Sports show you how. We rent 13ft Boston Whalers (max 4 people) outfitted with steering consoles and Bimini tops, complimentary snorkel gear and coolers included. We also offer Sunfish Sail Boats, Windsurfers (for the beginner and advanced), single and double kayaks, and new our line up of Stand Up Paddle Boards. All at Bermuda's best rates. We are located on the east end of the island, just two minutes from the airport at the Beach of Grotto Bay Hotel.

What a gorgeous experience! The kayaks are stable, self-baling and surprisingly comfortable. I preferred the double kayak so one of us could slack off if need be! You really don't need any experience to manoeuvre these flat-bottomed ocean kayaks--they're not at all tippy. Gotta hand it to the owner, Dennis--he couldn't have been nicer getting all of us set up... More

Amazing service from Michael despite changing plans a couple of times - these guys are in it to share the amazing things on offer here rather than making a fast buck. Reasonable rates on this expensive island and the usual amazing Bermudian service make this place the BEST rental on the island. Don't hesitate - they will steer you to... More

Just like everyone else had said, this was the best part of our trip! My husband and I rented one of the boats for 4 hours, which was just right for us. The staff was so nice and thoughtful. They noticed that I had a nice camera and offered to give me a tacklebox to keep it from getting wet.... More

This is one of those reviews you don't want to write because you want to keep it a secret. My fiancé and I love Bermuda and discovered blue hole water sports last year because it was the only boat rental available on such short notice. We were able to book a whaler for a half day and had the time... More

My family was staying at Grotto Bay Resort for the past week. While at Grotto Bay we were lucky enough to have Blue Hole Water Sports just at the end of the beach. Blue Hole had many different experiences to take advantage of during our stay. While at the hotel, my family and I paddle boarded, kayaked, used their rafts... More

We were staying at the Grotto Bay Resort, which has a relationship with Blue Hole Water Sports. We booked two motor boats for one hour and headed to Castle Point. It is gorgeous. I would highly recommend doing this if you are staying in the area. We got maps and a cell phone. They also gave us snorkeling gear. We... More

Booked a four hour motorboat rental. $150, plus gas used. Very reasonable. The staff is top notch. The boat is easy and fun to drive. The provided map is easy to read. They also supply snorkel gear and a cooler, upon request. A cell phone is provided with their number pre-programmed. Castle Point is a must see. Water clearer than... More

My husband and I booked a four hour excursion (noon-4pm, Thursday for $150) on a Boston Whaler to explore Castle Harbor. Initially, I was concerned because we had never operated a boat. When we arrived, Chase explained how everything worked. We were provided a waterproof map and suggestions on where to explore. After we crossed the bridge leading to the... More

Made use of canoes, paddle boards and snorkling equipement. There are a couple of sunken barges in the water park which are home to some lovely waterlife. The water park is huge so you can spend some lovely time exploring, particularly if you go under one of the arches of the road bridge. Dome mangrove and fabulous beaches beyond Thoroughly... More

We rented a little boat from Blue Hole Water Sports for 4 hours and had THE best time exploring Castle Harbour. At the suggestion of the wonderful staff, we went out to Castle Island, had a beautifully peaceful picnic lunch on the boat, and finished off the afternoon with snorkeling near the wreck at Nonsuch Island. This was the absolute... More
