With only 2 and 1/2 days what would you do besides horseshoe beach? Sailing with teens if that matters. Give me some ideas.please. What's a must see? Hamilton, St. George's, crystal caves, jet skii?HELP!!I'm sure the teens would love to do cliff jumping at Admiralty House Park or climb a lighthouse. There is a 'to do' list here which includes cliff jumping.& l/h climbing.
I just returned yesterday from the NCL Breakaway with the 2 1/2 days in Bermuda. We are age 40-50 and had 3 teen boys, age 19. Our group wanted beaches and snorkel time..... This is what we did and they had a blast.....
Day three: Quick walk over to Snorkel Park beach (we used the excursion credit onboard to pay for the admission/chairs/umbrella) ... admission is $5, chairs/umbrella is $25 ... we spent one hour here and thought it was pretty lame and wished we had joined the other half of our group. The other half of our group took the NCL free ferry over to St George's and spent 3 hours there around the town area and visited Tobacco Beach and Turtle Beach....a lot of hills and walking, but they survived and the views were ahhhmazing.
i believe helmet diving has an early dive so u could get back in time for sailaway
Thanks for posting a trip report.So true--and it was as lame as all have said. This is a great spot for the kiddos, however. No waves, shallow, easy to handle beach day.
As for Snorkel Park some of us have been posting for years that it is lame. Of course we had to go there once to find that out!
I'm wondering how it is on the boat while one isn't diving. I don't mind relaxing, and waiting for one other group (45 minutes) is no big deal, but I know my kids would not be happy sitting around for 1.5 hours (or longer) waiting for 2-3 other groups to dive. I still think I might prefer the ferry ride to St. George and a visit to Tobacco Bay, but the kids are still leaning toward the helment dive.when is sail date. i know he took just 1 person out in mid october last year. id imagine summer is more crowded for sure and u could be on the boat longer. while he cannot predict the future im sure if you wrote he would tell you about the past
We traveled with our daughter. Just turned 13.
Day one we toured with Heidi. It lasted almost seven hours. My daughter liked certain parts and was bored by others. No fault of Heidi. Really informative tour. My daughter liked the lighthouse, Warwick Bay, feeding fish, seeing sea turtles at aquarium and reenactment of dunking in St George.
Day two we spent six hours at the beaches/coves. Started at Warwick and worked our way down. Gorgeous and so much fun!
Day three we did helmet diving. My daughter's favorite experience. It was awesome! Perfect for that 1/2 day. Fridays are usually busier so if you don't want to wait on the boat for other groups to dive, you may want to choose other days. He had no one the day prior to our tour. Picks you up steps from the ship.
Does anyone have the contact info for Heidi? Thanks
