Bermuda is unique compared to the other caribbean islands. The friendliest island by far. I have been to all the south caribbean islands and Bermuda is the best for many reasons. All the beaches are amazing and the locals are the friendliest you will find on any island. St. Lucia, St. Marteen, Antigua and St. Thomas are very close second, third and so on in their respective order.
I highly recommend renting scooters on islands. You can see so much more and it's a blast riding. You really feel more like one with the islands.

The reefs are spectacular, I took a deep sea dive with a heavy open bottomed helmet, it was a tad scary! I prefer to scuba dive or snorkel by far! Horse shoe bay is the best beach having pink sands... loved it so much went back as part of our honeymoon package! Highly recommend!

We were fortunate enough to find Mike and Angelo during our one week trip to Bermuda. We phoned to make reservations and set up our day. We went to see a ship wreck, turtles (lucky enough to see 5 that day), lots of fish and the other family we were with went snorkling. We learned alot about the local eco-systems, economy, customs etc. from Mike and Angelo. It was like we were out for the day with a couple of old friends.

We would certainly recommend this excursion and will happily book again if we are lucky enough to return!

Just returned home from our Bermuda stay and had to post a review about our wonderful experience aboard the Reef Explorer with Capt Mike and his associate Angelo. We signed up for the afternoon "glass bottom snorkel adventure" and it turned out to be the best part of our vacation!! Mike shared his vast knowledge of Bermuda history, architecture and famous landmarks on our way to the site of a shipwreck..there we were able to view through the glass bottom the coral and sealife that live there...then it was on to Turtle Cove for the best snorkeling ever..cove is secluded and sheltered making for very calm waters..saw lots of coral and many beautiful fish..on the trip back to shore we chatted some more with Mike and Angelo and it was so clear to see that they truly love what they do and are dedicated to making your time with them the best. Thank you both for a great day
