This highly entertaining and informative tour truly earns its name as the ultimate water experience. Long recognized as one of Bermuda's best tours, you will probably learn more about the island in these two hours than others do during their entire vacation. The fun begins as soon as you step aboard your tour boat so be sure to bring along your sense of humor, which is a requirement for this intimate and friendly voyage, as well as your camera. At the helm is an award-winning Bermudian Captain, who will no doubt have you laughing from the moment you step aboard your comfortable tour boat. As you enjoy the natural beauty of the island and its diversity of plant and wildlife, your captain will be happy to share with you his knowledge of the birds and marine life you'll observe along the way.

Another highlight of this tour is the close-up views you'll have of some magnificent waterfront homes, such as those owned by Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, playwright Eugene O'Neal, and illustrator William Denslow, famous for his work on the ""Wizard of Oz."" You will also see Gibbs Hill Lighthouse, which is believed to be one of the oldest cast iron lighthouses in the world. The tour is often highly interactive and you are encouraged to participate in the lively discussions that arise about the people, politics and any other aspect of Bermudian life that is of interest to you. After a delightful cruise on Bermuda's exquisite turquoise blue waters, your tour boat will return you to the pier, filled with memories of the coastal wonders of this unique island paradise.
