I was on the Norwegian breakaway and book this trip. It's was the highlight of my trip however I wish we had more time in the water than cruising around the island. The tour guide squid is great and he know how's to keep calm and chive on

Even though the weather was threatening, this excursion ended up being one of the highlights of our trip to Bermuda. After canceling the morning trip due to thunderstorms, they allowed easy re-booking for the afternoon cruise. When the weather looked questionable for that trip they allowed people to disembark at the last minute if they desired. I'm so glad we didn't! They started with an hour long sail during which the friendly and knowledgable crew (special shout out to Chelsea) filled us in on interesting local history and trivia. We then anchored for a 75 minute snorkel/swim/kayak/paddle board extravaganza. The day was completed with a tasty rum swizzle. There is no better way to experience Bermuda outdoors!! Make this tops on your list of things to do!!

We recently went on the RisingDon Catamaran during our cruise to Bermuda. We booked it as a shire excursion and were so glad we did! It was fantastic. The crew could not have been more helpful and were so knowledgeable about the island. Zander, one of the crew members, gave us a great narrative of the island and showed us beautiful homes on the island and the history surrounding them. Once the catamaran anchored, we were able to snorkel, paddleboard, kayak, or just relax in the sun. We drank rum sizzles and listened to music on the way back. I highly recommend Rising Son! You won't be disappointed.

I had the most amazing time on rising son 11 in Bermuda . The staff was so fun, informative, helpful, and lastly amazing. The boat went around the island, took us snorkeling in amazing Bermuda caves, got us tipsy aka "swizzle", played amazing music-it was an all around great day!! One of the cute staff member's ChELSEA BURNs made me the best Swizzles I have ever had..She made the time to point out some of the most tropical fish I have ever seen while snorkeling. I actually felt as though I was in "Planet Earth" meanwhile boy did she have a body and half.. Men watch out !! Leave your wives at home..

We chartered the catamaran for a 4 hour sail the day after our destination wedding- and what a charter it was! The catamaran is beautiful, the crew is fun and courteous, and the sights are just incredible! Our guests had the time of their lives, and so did we! Thank you thank you thank you!
