We did the Sunset cruise on Tuesday 6/15/2021 and it was an amazing experience. The crew was so kind and a blast. Caption Squid was very informative about the island and whose house is whose. The free rum swizzle was so good then all drinks after were only $5 which is the cheapest drinks you’ll get on the whole island! One of the best parts was Ms Wesley the wonderful French bulldog on board. He was so sweet and gave lots of kisses. I would 100% book with this crew again and again.

Every time we charter with the Rising Son team our experience is excellent from start to finish. Last weekend we spent the day celebrating our friend’s 30th and we couldn’t have asked for a better day. Michelle was so helpful, quick to respond and went out of her way to ensure that everything was set up prior to the charter. Captain Steve, Adrian and Miles were super attentive ensuring all guests were having a great time, from our sailing experience down to drinks and DJ. 10/10 highly recommend. Thank you for providing the perfect day!

Our White Night Sunset Sail organized by our Viking Orion cruise ship was definitely a highlight. The Rising Son was a mere 5 minute walk from our ship docked in Dockyard. The majority of the passengers were totally dressed in white which made the evening more special. Captain Steve (catamaran owner) and first hands Tony and Mike were the ultimate hosts, with interesting and humorous stories of The islands, fun music and plenty of Rum Swizzles during the sail. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and highly recommend. We would definitely do this again on a return trip. Thanks Steve, Tony and Mike!

Steve took us out yesterday & we had a great time. From kayaking & snorkeling to the entertainment on the boat, he made the time spent on the boat so much fun. Steve also went above & beyond to make a tee time for us at a local golf course. We had a great time on the boat & couldn’t recommend this excursion more.

We did an evening catamaran sunset cruise that the team was nice enough to take us out on - as they were short a few people. There was plenty of swizzle to go around and it was a great way to take in the island. Great tunes and company! A good time was had by all.

All of the crew were wonderful, but the best addition was first mate Mr. Wesley. Lovely afternoon of swimming and snorkeling. Water was a bit cool this time of year but there were kayaks and paddleboards for those who didn't want to get fully in the water. My husband loved the rum swizzle and Micah was kind enough to make me a non-alcoholic version. We've been coming to Bermuda for years and we'd definitely rebook.

Was absolute blast! 10/10 would recommend! Short trip to snorkeling site which is a great spot to see lots of fish and coral. Drinks are amazing and Captain and Crew are laid back and fun.

I love the To using Sin cruises. The spot we stop at amazing and the water was not that bad. I feel like the staff was not all their. But it's ok because Mr Wesley carried the staff. He just sat their and I loved it. And when all the staff didn't pay attention to the customer Mr Wesley way their. We was a life guard that's always on duty. 10/10 would go again just for Me Wesley.

This is truly a highlight of our cruise to Bermuda. My sisters and I had an amazing time with and knowledgeable and friendly crew who made our experience so wonderful. Enjoy beautiful, corral reefs while learning to snorkel or paddle in a kayak or paddleboard. So much fun!
Thank to Capt. Micah and the crew.

AMAZING experience! I was the only non-swimmer on this excursion & one of the crew members MARCUS stayed with me the whole time I was in the ocean to make sure I was comfortable & having a good time. He even tried to teach me how to swim & I was able to use some of the techniques he showed me for the duration of my cruise at different ports during different excursions. I definitely wouldn’t have been able to enjoy the experience if it wasn’t for him! The whole crew was extremely knowledgeable about Bermuda & they all made sure we were having the best time! It was definitely a great experience & I’ll be doing it again!
