Owner description: Rising Son II is Bermuda’s most popular award winning Sailing Catamaran. Independently owned and owner operated, our life’s work is dedicated to superior service and customer satisfaction, with fun and class. Our vessel is a custom built 60 Ft Simonis Sailing Catamaran with all the amenities on-board you could ever need for comfort and entertainment on the water. Bermuda-born and Licensed Captain Steve ‘Squid’ Smith and his crew are knowledgeable, entertaining and fully qualified to provide you with the perfect day on the water. We will meet as strangers, but walk away as friends with memories of your time aboard the Rising Son II. We offer regular join-in tours May through November and are available for Private Charter year round. Rising Son II is the perfect vessel for sailing and snorkeling, cocktail cruises, corporate events and getaways, wedding and birthday celebrations and so much more. Your time with us is special, and we are committed to ensuring your every need is met while you are on-board– without distraction. As such, our friends at Island Tour Centre handle all of our tour bookings and payments.

Came to visit my cousin in Bermuda and she took me on the Rising Son catamaran tour, it was awesome! We sat atop on some comfy bean bags and had the best view of what the island had to offer. The crew knows how to host a fun party. I highly recommend booking with this boat, you won't be disappointed !!

NCL Dawn May 2013 out of Boston. We went out on the Rising Son Catamaran during out stay in Bermuda. This excursion is a HOME RUN! The Crew was top noch and fun. Everything in the brochure was correct and understated. Something for everyone. Real value for the money...Marblehead

We had a very enjoyable afternoon on the Rising Son II - great weather, views, snorkeling, swimming, and service. Xander and Reilly (and the rest of the crew!) were excellent!

My wife and I were in Bermuda while on a cruise with the Norwegian Breakaway in May of 2013. We had selected a few excursions and the Rising Son II Catamaran cruise was one on our list. It was a short walk to their dock from our ship and boarding was simple. The Rising Son II is a beautiful clean catamaran and there was plenty of seating. We were given a brief overview by the crew and we were on our way. After a small tour of the area, we landed at the cove where we remained anchored. They offered fun water sports (kayaking, snorkeling, boogie-boarding, swimming). My wife and I had never been kayaking and decided to give it a go. The crew helped us pick out the right Kayak and away we went. We did some swimming afterward in that beautiful blue/green ocean. We didn't snorkel, but many others on the tour took advantage of it. On the ride back, we were treated to several Rum Swizzle's and more stories about the area. The crew was very professional and answered any questions that we had. We were truly satisfied with this tour and we highly recommend it if your looking for something fun to do in Bermuda!!

You can visit Bermuda without going on the water. You won't find a better boat or crew to do it with! They casual, relaxed and fun.

You can do it all on the Rising Son 2... Sail around the harbour, sun tan on the deck, swim, snorkel, kayak or paddle board. If you want to listen to music loud or do shots at the bar you can do that too!
