Whale Watching Along the Coast of BermudaBermuda’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.

Discover the Wild Life
Marine mammals, native wildlife, and aquatic animals make for day trips that kids will talk about for years. Located in Hamilton Parish, the Bermuda Aquarium, Zoo, and Museum first opened in 1926. It features the Northrock Exhibit, a 140,000-gallon tank of coral reefs and marine life, an outdoor seal pool, and interactive displays that focus on native Bermuda habitats and their relationship with the humans around them. The zoo has more than 300 birds, reptiles, and mammals. The Islands of Australasia exhibit has lemurs and wallabies, and the Islands of the Caribbean exhibit features a walk-through cage where guests can get up close and personal with iguanas and ibises.
