Famous Homes and Hideaways Cruise
Duration: Half Day
Bermuda is a paradise destination, boasting pristine, pink-sand beaches, alluring turquoise waters and a tropical climate, so it is no wonder that famous people such as Michael Douglas have bought homes on the island. This tour will take you to see some of Bermuda’s most beautiful houses and mansions, as well historical sights, and hidden coves and secluded coastal spots that you may not otherwise have been discovered.
A boat trip around Bermuda’s isles is a must during your holiday. Relax in comfort as you cruise along the coastline, taking in the natural beauty all around you. Located in the Atlantic Ocean, approximately 650 miles from Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, Bermuda is a hook-shaped archipelago, made up of 138 islands in total, although it is often referred as one main island due to its connections by bridges and causeways.
If you travel by boat you can gain a different perspective of Bermuda’s beauty, and also discover hidden gems along the way which are only accessible by boat. Marvel at spectacular views of the coastline as we glide leisurely over crystal clear waters, past secluded coves and stunning pink-sand beaches, which Bermuda is famous for. Hear personal stories about the island from the captain and crew and learn historic facts about this tiny but fascinating country.
Sail past pastel-coloured colonial homes on the water’s edge, and exclusive neighbourhoods known as “Millionaire’s Row”. Look out for the beautiful, grand home of Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, as well as the house of playwright Eugene O’Neil, whose daughter was married to Charlie Chaplin. Other famous houses include that of illustrator William Denslow, who was best known for his work on the Wizard of Oz.
As you cruise around the coastline, you will also see historic landmarks such as Gibbs Hill Lighthouse. Reputedly the oldest cast-iron lighthouse in the world, it was built in 1846 to warn passing ships of Bermuda's treacherous reefs. Early seamen named Bermuda “Isle of Devils” because of the high numbers of ships that met their doom after hitting the reefs, and over 300 shipwrecks now lie scattered in the surrounding waters.
This entertaining and informative cruise is an excellent way to enjoy the highlights of Bermuda’s coastline.
