Which snorkel excursion?

Looking to do a snorkel excursion from Hamilton or the Dockyard for hubby and me late August. Am looking at Restless Native, Rising Son and Hat Trick. Any recommendations please. Have looked at the reviews and like the fact that Restless Native looks smaller and more intimate but unsure which to book. Help please!

1. Re: Which snorkel excursion?

The best snorkeling in Bermuda will be out over and around her broad, offshore coral reef system. Be sure to check.

I'm pretty sure that '..Hat Trick..' goes to the offshore reefs.

'..Restless Native..' tends to spend most of their snorkeling time at a north shore anchorage (Deep Bay?), which is grand for beginners and un-confident swimmers.

Someone will correct me if I'm mistaken but...I'm pretty sure that'..Rising Son II..' also spends most of her snorkeling time closer inshore

As KDK mentioned, Hat-Trick goes out to the outer reef of the Blue Hole, whereas the others stay closer to shore. This is one reason we chose Hat-Trick, along with the fact that it is small (only 2 other people were on our trip), and not a "booze cruise" atmosphere. You can read my review for more details. One thing to note is the point of departure for Hat-Trick is out in Sandys parish at the Mangrove Bay dock, which is a short bus ride from the Dockyard area, then a walk from the bus stop to the dock. But it was definitely worth the trip.

my suggestion if you are confident swimmers is that you go with a boat that tends to go a bit further out on the north side to snorkel - blue hole is lovely
