Can anyone give me suggestions on how to maximize my port call in King's Wharf, Bermuda? What is the best way to get to Hamilton if you want to do some shopping? Your suggestions are welcome and appreciated.
You didn't say how long your port stop at King's Wharf is. When we were in Bermuda, we were docked in St. George for 3 days so we had plenty of time to explore the island. We bought a transportation pass for 3 days, but I think you can buy a 1 day pass also. That would let you ride all the buses and ferries. The best and probably the cheapest way to get to Hamilton from King's Wharf is probably the ferry but I can't remember exactly how the routes go or how direct they were. We took one from St. George to King's Wharf and back one day and used the buses to get to Hamilton and the beaches on the southern coast like Horseshoe Bay.
I honestly don't know why the ships dock at King's Wharf, we found very little of interest there and hopped back on the next ferry. Hamilton is where most of the shopping is and there's a great port right there. Wednesday night is a good time to go to Hamilton, there was a street fair with so many vendors set up. St. George was a really nice place to dock, too, there were some shops, restaurants, and beaches nearby. Not sure if you are a beach person, but from King's Wharf, you can catch the bus to Horseshoe Bay and the beaches near that end.They are the prettiest I have ever seen...they really are pink!
Bermuda is a beautiful, clean, safe island..you will enjoy your time there.
I hope this helps........happy sails....................
I agree the best way to get from King's Warf to Hamilton is by ferry -- you can also get to St George's, but not as frequently. There are two ferries to Hamilton -- the direct route and a milk run. The first takes about 45 minutes and the second about twice the time. Which one you takes depends on your desire to see some pretty views or go directly to shopping. I can't remember the fare, but I think it is on the rer of $4 pp, but don't quote me on that.
