Whale Watching

For the months of March and April humpback whales make their annual migration from the warm Caribbean waters to their feeding grounds in Greenland, Iceland and Canada. Humpback whales are generally more friendly than other whales thus more approachable allowing for close up encounters of often acrobatic displays as they breach above water. You can book a whale watching excursion at the Island Tour Center.

The most popular being Clarence Cove at Admiralty House with a variety of routes for different levels. The highest climb in Bermuda is the 100-foot Great Head Park in St David’s.

Bird Watching

The most stunning of Bermuda’s birds and perhaps of any sea bird to be found anywhere in the world is the Bermuda long tail. The long tail is an open ocean species that only comes to land to breed, laying their single egg in crevasses that are found in the soft limestone cliffs of Bermuda. They first appear in Bermuda around late February and are often attributed by Bermudians as the
first signs of spring. The long tail is the only sea bird that nests in significant numbers in Bermuda, therefore Bermuda play’s a significant role in the history of the species. Other birds that can be found in Bermuda are the white eyed vireo, the Cahow, the green heron,


Bermuda is a small island with a big history, such as St Peters Church in St George’s or the Carter House in St David’s dating back to 1615 and 1640s respectfully. Emulating a time when the old world discovered the new, and Bermuda and her mid Atlantic shores where in the midst as pirates and privateers stopped for provisions and at times to set up shop. Here’s a little trip into Bermuda’s rich and charismatic history.


Believed to be the oldest continuously used Anglican Church in the Western Hemisphere, St Peters is the crown jewel of an already historic St George’s. The church replaced an already existing structure made of wooden posts and palmetto leaves that was destroyed in a storm in 1615. The church was built under the supervision of the first governor of Bermuda Richard Moore. St Peters church was also home to the Bermuda parliament in 1620, which made it the 3rd oldest parliament in the world. The original alter still stands built in 1615 it is the single oldest wooden structure in Bermuda. To the east of the cemetery are the graves that were allotted to the whites and to the west were the graves allotted for the black slaves. In the latter half of the 16th century as the blacks started becoming Christians a second graveyard was added by extending the existing one to the western side. By the mid 19th century the graveyard was closed for burials. Although the cemetery was opened for two prominent Bermudians Sir Richard Sharplesas and his aide-de-camp Captain Hugh Sayers whom were assassinated and buried here in 1973.
