27 elderly passengers off a cruise ship were tenderly helped aboard the Reef Explorer and sat on the upper deck for a slow trip out to the reef. During the trip we received an informative talk on Bermuda, its history, and economics. We were treated to a view of the Japanese America's Cup Contender passing us up on its hydrofoil... More

While enroute to a secluded bay for snorkeling, our captain pointed out three sailboats practicing for the 2017 Amerca's Cup, which will be held in the ocean off Bermuda's coast. It was nice to watch the US entry, Oracle, and others from New Zealand and Sweden. Since the Reef Explorer is glass- bottomed, we also stopped above some reefs to... More

I was living there and only went on trip to take my brother. I am so glad I did! I had a fabulous time and saw a lot of marine life on the trip from Lobster to Grouper. We even got to see Bioluminescence! What an amazing time. I highly recommend it!

I just wanted to thank Captain Mike and his wonderful team on the Reef Explorer for their wonderful treatment of Owen Ross and his family while on their Make a Wish trip to Bermuda. There was nothing that was too big or small for his staff to make this young man's day a truly memorable one. Thank you so very... More

Captain Mike is a native Bermudian and he loves what he does! He has been providing snorkel and boat tours his entire life. He knows great historical data on homes along the coast lines, and is super passionate about the recent revitalization of the sea turtle population. At $60 a person for 3 hours of site seeing and snorkeling this... More

This was a fantastic excursion to do while we were in Bermuda. Michael was very friendly and informative of the island. There were six of us and we really enjoyed the cruise around the island. We saw many many sea turtles and lots of fish and under sea coral life from the glass bottom boat. Michael went at a nice... More

My son and I took this tour on our recent trip to Bermuda. We wanted to snorkel, but also see some of the other sights. Micheal was knowledgeable without being condescending, answered questions he must have heard a thousand times with grace and entertained us while keep us safe. The glass bottom boat is great if you are not interested... More
