You can do all your excursions on your own by public transportation.You can go to the library and get either Frommers or Ferdor book on Bermuda,read up on the island and you can set your trip.
You can buy a bus pass and it is good for any bus or ferry.
Public transportation is the way to go in Bermuda. I totally agree with pop66ma, go to the library or check out the travel guides on line.
some suggestions: Horseshoe Beach,botantical gardens, the caves are very interesting.
We stayed over on Bermuda after the Newport-Bermuda (sailboat) Race. Cab drivers are great! Our favorite activity other than developing a taste for "dark and stormy" drinks was renting mopeds and exploring the old railroad trail. If you're members of a club with reciprocity, the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club is beautiful and very freindly for a club. The Hog Penny is a fun pub in the old town.
There are no ice caves that I am aware of. There are two regular caves that can be reached by bus. I have done a glass bottom boat excursion which is nice. However, I agree with other postings. You can't beat the transportaion system. Take a ferry to Hamilton. Hit Horsheshoe Bay. In Bermuda, you can't miss.
Horseshoe Beach is much nicer than Elbow Beach. You can do a short climb up the rock formation and get a good view of the beach.

.....And how far is that from where the ship docks at.......is elbow closer then horseshow? And where do you get the glass bottom boat at from the pier and where can I get a price on this at and time frame..
Regarding the difference between Horseshoe and Elbow. Horseshoe is much nicer. There is a changing station/bathroom, small grill for food, and small area to buy items. It is also possible to rent Snorkel equipment although I would suggest you take your own. Also, don't forget to take an underwater camera. Horseshoe Bay is more enclosed although not a small cove by any means. There are rock areas that you can snorkel by. Climb onto the rocks for a spectacular view. Elbow is more of an open beach with two private hotel beaches on both sides. Finding a restroom is difficult as there are no public facilities. From the Dockyard, you would reach Horseshoe first. It is a good walk to the bottom of Horseshoe where the beach actually is. Locals will be there offereing to drive you to the bottom or back to the top for $1. It is well worth the money.
If you want to do a glass bottom boat, I would recommend buying as excursion from the cruiseline. You actually walk right off the cruise ship to the area where you load for the glass bottom boat.
Feel free to ask any other questions. Heading to Bermuda for my 5th time in 2 weeks!!!
