Boating in Bermuda
Concierge.com's insider take:
One of the best ways to explore St. George's Castle Harbour is by renting a boat. Thirteen-foot Boston Whalers with Bimini tops are available at Blue Hole Water Sports (Grotto Bay Beach Resort; 441-293-2915; www.blueholewater.bm). The "dudes" at the front desk will point out the rough, reefy spots that you should avoid, but no formal boat-handling instruction is offered; still, maneuvering the boats is a cinch, and each comes with a cell phone in case you get stuck. From the water, you can get a firsthand look at the new Tucker's Point development and the lavish mansions at Tucker's Town Bay. A few minutes east is a scene worthy of Robinson Crusoe: Castle Island, where you can anchor offshore and snorkel the clear waters or picnic on the deserted beach.
