Default Voyager to Bermuda Shore Excursions??

Hey everyone, I am currently looking for my own shore excursion through reputable sources/ agencies. If there are any idea you guys have, please help me out. I found it more economical (and fun) to find my own shore excursion company in Halifax last year with the help of Cruisemates posters.

We are looking to:

* Visit the museum/zoo.
* Spend time at a beach in which my husband can snorkel in shallow water.
* Maybe take a glass bottom boat cruise/tour.

If you have the names of companies that I can look up on google, please let me know.

ALSO: How much transportation was there at King's Wharf for those who are looking to peruse the island without taking the "official" Royal Caribbean tour?

Buy a Bus and Ferry pass for the time you will be in Bermuda. There are buses and ferries that go to and from King's Wharf. There are plenty of public beaches along the bus route and the ferry will take you express to Hamilton right at the center of the shopping area. Mopeds are no longer they are high power scooters and very dangerous. My wife fell off and scaped her arms and legs. Many atourist are killed. You'll like Bermuda. Ship sails Friday (VOS) to Western Carib. Pete

When we went on Carnival's Legend we booked the Helmut dive, realy had fun with that we also did the "Train Tour" (tram) and glass-bottom boat tour.

We did the helmet dive and loved it. Hartley's Helmet Dive is very good.

Thanks everyone! I seem to hear a lot about the bus pass and Ferry pass on this website... I think I will try that.

hi there!
We went on a fabulous cruise to Bermuda in 2000. We stayed at King's Wharf too. One day we took the bus to Horseshoe Bay beach... this is the most beautiful beach I think I have ever been too. You can snorkel there too. You can go for a long walk or just sit or swim... THey have facilities and chairs to rent. The water is warm and clean and just lovely... The bus goes right by there.
As for sightseeing, one day we just got off the ship and spoke to one of the cab drivers at the pier. He was a great guy... We arranged a price, piled in, and he took us all over the island, explaining things as we went, and allowing us time to get out wherever we wanted, for as long as we wanted. I would recommend this! We had a great day and saw many of the highlights of the island. It was very reasonably priced as I recall, plus we added a nice tip for the wonderful driver.
Have a great time... Bermuda is wonderful!! You're gonna love it!
PS - we did book one excursion at the time, it was to a nightclub to hear a steel drum band. While the music was nice, the overall excursion was overpriced and most of our group was unhappy with it.
