I'm a little slow to post this, but no less enthusiastic!! I had the most amazing time on the undersea walk -- I arrived on the Norwegian Breakaway a few days after a hurricane had touched down in Bermuda (October 2016) and was worried that this would be canceled due to the high winds the day before; I'm so glad...

Thanks SusanK for your post. Slow or not it is always great to receive a 5 star review with such informative, convincing text. When I prod Ben to act quickly (early bird gets the worm), he reminds me that it is not the first mouse, with the broken neck, but rather the second mouse that gets the cheese. As you... More

My hubby and I were on the Carnival Vista and arrived in beautiful Bermuda on Halloween- we booked our Hartley's Undersea Walk in advance and were shocked that there was only one other couple to share in this AMAZING adventure! I love to snorkel and I carry my own equipment when we cruise/travel; however my hubby has not mastered the... More

Dear C2C, Thanks for being a whole half of our tour last month. Despite the economic disadvantage of only taking out 4 people, the benefit of being able to create such an awesome tour, with almost a charter cruise and only four people underwater, makes it very enjoyable for me. The atmosphere of such an intimate cruise is very relaxed... More

At first I was a little nervous since I can't swim and will be totally immersed in water but this is one of the best experiences I had while in Bermuda. Greg Hartley went over how it started by his parents, what kind of fish and sea life we might see, photos of others who did the helmet diving and... More

Thank you Pauline for your 5* review. It is precisely your nervousness and progressing anyway, that created the perception of value in your experience. Those who are blase and casual do not experience your joi de vivre. We hope to see you again when circumstances permit. More

My 16 year old nephew participated in the undersea walk walk whilst on a cruise to Bermuda this week. Ross who has participated in many exciting sports described it as being the most exciting thing that he has done. There was only 3 participants on the dive and therefore they all got additional time under water. Greg Hartley was funny,... More

Dear M&GM, Thanks for not only taking the time to post a review, but also posting a 5* one. Teenagers are not that easy to impress. Not only does it give me pleasure to provide pleasure for others, it is also enjoyable to get such positive feedback and to know that one's actions are appreciated. Thanks so much. More

This was such a wonderful experience. I was on a cruise and did this helmet dive and it was the best part of my trip, I didn't stop laughing and smiling the whole time. I would do it again and again. It was just a wonderful and informative dive.

My husband and I did the Undersea Walk last week while we were in Bermuda on a cruise. My husband booked the trip and I was quite skeptical as I am not a diver and was anxious to say the least.

Lots of fun and interesting. Owner and son very friendly and informative. The only thing not sure of and should have checked but I paid sixteen dollars first thinking it was for a single photo of my dive and then another sixteen for my girlfriend when going on dive only to find I didn't get any singles.

Dear ljohn, Thanks for taking the time to post about your "Experience of a life time". My apologies for not explaining more about the photos beforehand. The lens we use has a very wide angle. Unless each dive is pulled off the grab bar and placed on their own, it is difficult to get only one person in the photo.... More

In addition to being an adventure, you also get a great lesson in underwater life and ecology. Gregg Hartley and his son Ben do a great job in hosting and educating vacationers on the sealife in Bermuda! Highly, highly recommend!

Thanks Rickyw for enjoying your adventure, and for learning. The only way to see having had a 'great lesson in underwater life and ecology' is to have learned it. Thanks for being open to the lesson. One only learns by teaching and we all teach. More

We did this excursion on our cruise to Bermuda on September 8th. Simply amazing! You get to see and learn so much, you are basically walking in an aquarium. Would recommend this to anybody going to Bermuda!

Brandy, I value and am grateful for your amazement, review and recommendation. I often wonder, with the glowing reviews we get, why people are not flocking to our door. However, there are lots of other rave reviews of other tours on these pages. We will see who is paying attention. More

Yesterday I had the pleasure of experiencing helmet diving for the first time and it was absolutely amazing!!! As a Bermudian sometimes we don't take time to explore / support local businesses and what the island has to offer. We get so used to paradise and forget to explore our own island!!

Thanks Butterfly for appreciating both Bermuda and our tour. Your action to look outside the norm to see the different even when it has always been there is commendable.
