Private Snorkel at Church Bay
Duration: Half Day
Often referred to as a single island, Bermuda is actually a beautiful hook-shaped archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean, comprising approximately 140 small coral islands. Renowned for its tropical climate, exquisite, pale pink coral sand beaches and crystal clear pure waters, which offer a stunning array of coral reefs, underwater caves and hundreds of historic shipwrecks to explore, Bermuda is a paradise holiday destination which offers world-class diving and snorkelling opportunities.
During your holiday in Bermuda, why not enjoy a day of relaxation exploring the wonders of the country’s beautiful underwater world. This tour will take you to Church Bay, one of the island’s finest snorkeling beaches. Located in Southampton at the western end of the south shore beaches, Church Bay is an idyllic, crescent-shaped rocky cove carved out of coral cliffs, where you will find stunning pink sands, clear turquoise waters and coral reefs teeming with tropical fish and other beautiful marine creatures, which thrive in the Atlantic Ocean.
The reefs here are relatively close to the shore, and the calm, shallow waters are protected, making the beach a popular choice for snorkelers. Warmed by the waters of the Gulf Stream, which flows up from the Caribbean, Bermuda’s diverse ocean life is similar to the Caribbean’s, although not all species can survive in the cooler Atlantic waters. Marvel at the beauty of this natural aquarium as you swim amongst vivid, colourful hard and soft coral formations and schools of brightly-coloured tropical fish, which include rainbow parrot fish, butterfly fish, spotted puffer fish, barracuda, clown fish, trigger fish, angel fish and many, many more.
A local marine biologist will be on hand to talk about the many different marine species that you will come across during your trip, as well as offering interesting sea life facts and answering any questions that you may have. This will undoubtedly enhance your experience on this exhilarating underwater adventure, giving you plenty of unforgettable memories to take away with you.
For those who would like to relax and soak up the sun afterwards, Church Bay is one of the prettiest beaches on the island. This day of natural beauty, both in and of the water, is a trip not to be missed.
Snorkeling equipment and towels are provided, and light snacks and refreshments will also be available on the trip.
