This was a fun afternoon boat ride. We feed the fish and saw sea turtles. Captain Jessie let the kids sit in the Captain seat. A must do in Bermuda for all ages.

27 elderly passengers off a cruise ship were tenderly helped aboard the Reef Explorer and sat on the upper deck for a slow trip out to the reef. During the trip we received an informative talk on Bermuda, its history, and economics. We were treated to a view of the Japanese America's Cup Contender passing us up on its hydrofoil... More

While enroute to a secluded bay for snorkeling, our captain pointed out three sailboats practicing for the 2017 Amerca's Cup, which will be held in the ocean off Bermuda's coast. It was nice to watch the US entry, Oracle, and others from New Zealand and Sweden. Since the Reef Explorer is glass- bottomed, we also stopped above some reefs to... More

I was living there and only went on trip to take my brother. I am so glad I did! I had a fabulous time and saw a lot of marine life on the trip from Lobster to Grouper. We even got to see Bioluminescence! What an amazing time. I highly recommend it!

Captain Mike is a native Bermudian and he loves what he does! He has been providing snorkel and boat tours his entire life. He knows great historical data on homes along the coast lines, and is super passionate about the recent revitalization of the sea turtle population.
