Duration: Half Day
Enjoy a scenic and entertaining tour of the beautiful Bermuda isles, where you can enjoy breathtaking views of pink-sand beaches and the sparkling turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean. You will also visit Bermuda Aquarium and the exquisite Crystal Caves, among other exciting highlights.
This exciting bus ride will firstly take you around the town of Hamilton, Bermuda’s capital, where you will learn about the history of the area. Bermuda is the oldest British colony in the world and Hamilton was once known as the "show window of the British Empire”. Enjoy wonderful views of the harbour on the way to see historic sights of interest such as Bermuda Cathedral, the 19th century Fort Hamilton and Camden House, the official residence of the Premier of Bermuda.
You will then continue onwards to Bermuda Aquarium and Zoo, one of Bermuda’s premier tourist attractions, which boasts over 300 birds, reptiles and oceanic mammals. Dedicated to inspiring appreciation and conservation of Bermuda’s native wildlife and island environments, the aquarium is committed to educating its visitors and carrying out research through its support charity, the Bermuda Zoological Society. You will see over 200 species of fish here, as well as sea turtles, seahorses and a spectacular replica of a living coral reef, which lies off Bermuda’s North Shore. Visitors can also learn about Bermuda’s unique geology through interactive displays in the Natural History Museum, and there is now an exciting interactive walk-through area of Bermuda’s habitats, where you can experience the sights and sounds of the country’s native fauna.
Your next stop is the famous Crystal Caves, named after the beautiful crystal clear waters that flow into them. You can even see the cave floor through the water, due to the excellent visibility. These intriguing caves were discovered by two boys in 1905, after losing their ball and going down to retrieve it. Today, visitors can explore inside by walking on a wooden pontoon above the water. Your guide will explain the history and geology of the caves, and also point out unique formations that resemble the face of Bob Marley, the Manhattan Skyline and other interesting images. Marvel at the stunning crystal stalactites and stalagmites, which surround the clear lake, having formed over millions of years. The Fantasy Cave can also now be visited; its exquisite re-illumination is a breathtaking sight not to be missed.
During your trip, you will also get the chance to see some of Bermuda’s most beautiful pink-sand beaches. This unique day of history, beauty and discovery is a wonderful addition to your holiday in Bermuda.
