“Great time - right at the cruise pier”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

We booked Rising Son 1/2 day while in Bermuda on the NCL Breakaway. The catamaran is right at the pier so no taxi necessary. Fun trip - great team on board. We enjoyed snorkeling, kayaks and paddle boards. Free Wi-Fi on board too. Great trip and we will book again when in Bermuda.

“Great excursion and friendly crew!”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

This excursion was a lot of fun! The crew was very funny and friendly, eager to answer any questions and to get to know the passengers on board. I've experienced better snorkels in areas like the caribbean, there wasn't as much to see in the water. But there were also kayaks/paddle boards to use for fun, as well as areas to lay in the sun on board. I recommend this to anyone looking for a fun excursion on a trip to Bermuda!

“Sunset Cruise”
Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

We booked a sunset cruise with our family 82 years old to 20 years old. We all had a great time with stories from the captain inside and from Shane outside in the front. Fun was had by all. Would recommend this cruise to anyone I know going to Bermuda!

“amazing and "a must"”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

My husband and I had an amazing time. It was our first time in Bermuda and Snorkeling. The crew was so friendly and helped you with anything if you needed it. Shane was hilarious and made everyone feel like family. I think everyone should do this excursion no question about it. We give four thumbs up and five stars.
