“An absolutely brilliant experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2014

I have done this tour twice now and I have recommended it to both family and friends on their visits to Bermuda, all of whom have had an absolutely brilliant time! Sonny is an informative and funny tour guide, and getting out to the shipwrecks is quick giving you plenty of time in the water to explore. I will continue to recommend this excursion as a must for anyone visiting Bermuda!

“What a treat this was!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2014

My daughter and I had made reservations on another snorkeling trip but made a mistake on the time and missed it. The snorkeling company hooked us up with Sonny. My daughter and I were the only ones on the boat besides Sonny and his "first mate". We loved the personalized tour. He gave us a lot of history of Bermuda and we were able to ask lots of questions. The highlight was stopping a long side a sea turtle research boat. One of the researchers hopped on our boat with a turtle he was tagging and gave us a lesson on sea turtles. We able to touch the turtle and take lots of pictures. Definitely go out on the trip with Sonny!

“Great time (even with the weather) with Sonny”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

Capt Sonny runs a small snorkel / dive outfit that allows you an easy, flexible and personal experience. As a native Bermudian, seasoned captain and water-lover, he is the perfect guide. I learned much about the history of the island, the ecological and wildlife concerns and much more. We ended up going out on a breezy day, so we stayed close to shore and did a tour, with a short time for snorkel. He was amenable to the six of us on board (who really wanted to snorkel, in spite of the choppy waters) and was fair to flex with his fees. Will definitely give Sonny a call my next time in Bermuda.

“Nice and easy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

We enjoyed some great time on board a catamaran, unfortunately the weather wasn't the best that day, but we still had a chance to enjoy snorkeling and watch some of underwater life. The captain was very informative and professional. Next day we went to another beach with better weather that day and we were able to snorkel once again, but then we could completely enjoy nature with full sunlight, I highly recommend to do so while in Bermuda.

“Enjoyed Beach and Snorkel Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

We spent the better part of a day at the beach and snorkel park at King's Wharf. Overall it was a fun day for our teenagers and ourselves. We did it as an excursion from the Celebrity Summit cruise ship for ~$55 per person, but in retrospect, we probably would have done better doing it ourselves because the windy weather prevented them from offering umbrellas and ocean kayaks. The beach is an easy walk from the cruise ship port, and, with a $5 entrance fee you can then rent snorkel gear for $15-25. The snorkeling was pretty good for the type of attraction and the size of the crowd. There were areas on both sides of the beach area that were rocky and had some coral that hadn't been walked on, and nice fish to see. Water in August was like a bathtub and you could stay in all day if you wanted. Easy walk back to the boat whenever you're ready made is a flexible and easy day out.
