Bermuda’s Atlantic Ocean address is a passing point for humpback whales on migration to feeding grounds in the north. Mid-March through the end of April is prime time for the viewing of these mammoth marine animals. Whale watching tours leave out of various docks around the island and last anywhere from four to six hours, depending upon weather conditions and the activity level of the whales.
There are several companies on the island that run whale-watching tours, including Fantasea Diving and Watersports, Blue Water Divers and Watersports, and the Island Tour Centre at the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum, and Zoo. Don’t forget the camera and binoculars.
