King's Wharf, Bermuda

Roberta Saunier
When we were forced to dock at the Royal Navel Dockyard because all the other ports were filled, lots of people on our ship were very unhappy. They felt we were too far from everything, especially the shopping district. Since shopping is not something I look for in a port, that didn’t matter at all to me. Unlike many other people on our cruise, I really enjoyed the dockyard. It is quiet, but there is plenty to do there. There are shops and crafts (glass blowing & pottery) as well as the Maritime Museum, Dolphin Quest, and the ruins of the original dockyard. You can rent scooters, but I would really recommend getting the public transportation pass if you’re going to be there a few days. We used it to go to Horseshoe Bay, which is beautiful. My husband had his own snorkeling gear and was able to snorkel there. He found an interesting little underwater cave. We also used to pass to take the ferry to Hamilton. It probably would’ve been quicker to take the bus there, but the ferry ride was more scenic. We were going to go to the Lighthouse, but it was raining and visibility was poor so we skipped that. This is a beautiful, tranquil spot. I would definitely go back. Ever thought of becoming a part time or home based travel agent? Follow this link to see some of the books Tom Ogg has authored.
