Whether you’re a local or visitor to Bermuda, there’s always a benefit to seeing the island from a different perspective and often the best way to do that is by joining a local tour. These 4 tours are anything but ordinary and they offer a closer look at specific aspects of our island that most don’t get to see up-close.
1. Whale Watching – Click here to book!
Each spring, about 10,000 migrating humpback whales make their way past our pink shores on their way to cooler waters up North for the summer months. While passing by, these migrating whales make a pit stop in Bermuda, creating an opportunity for locals and visitors to see these whales both from a distance and up-close. Running through both March and April, whale-watching tours depart at either Dockyard or Flatts and get as close to the whales as possible while still keeping a respectable distance. Whale-watchers can expect to see humpbacks breach, tail slap, spy-hop and blow! Binoculars and cameras are encouraged and guests are warned, they might get wet.
