Bermuda Reef Explorer

Bermuda is a little bit of Heaven. With pink-sand beaches, interesting pink architecture and friendly people, Bermuda is an ideal destination for a family vacation, honeymoon or even a weekend holiday.
One of the must-do activities in Bermuda is to explore the amazing reefs that surround the island. A tour on the Bermuda Reef Explorer, Hamiltonis the best ways to see the spectacular reefs. It is Bermuda’s largest glass-bottom boat with a length of 70 feet and and a beam of 20 feet.
The boat is owned by Captain Michael Gladwin; He has over 25 years of experience in Bermuda waters and is a very competent skipper. During the trips, the captain shares with tourists his knowledge about Bermuda's underwater world and provides many interesting facts about this magnificent island. Michael Gladwin is for many passengers the plus of the Reef Explorer tours.
The Reef Explorer can hold up to 150 passengers in two large open decks and a lower deck where the glass-bottom can be found. The upper deck is great for viewing the scenery around while the boat is sailing along. The lower deck has a bar with soda dispensers, changing and restrooms. Since it was given a major refit in 2007, the Reef Explorer has a new dive platform at the rear. Onboard there are snorkel equipment and kayaks.
There are different cruises available, from snorkel adventures to glass-bottom tours and from pirate party adventures to fun tours of Bermuda.
