Launched in , this website is Bermuda's one of the leading sources of information since many years. Are all ship services open and available for use by passengers while in port such as meals, activities, shows at night, food, bars, and casino? I'm assuming you sleep on the ship. Shops in the cruise ships are usually closed but all other onboard services including food, bar, shows remain open.
Or do you suggest taking transit? The road is quite narrow with 2-way traffic between dockyard entry gate all the way to Somerset. While some do it, it may not be quite safe for tourists biking first time in Bermuda. A private transit with a bike is also not quite doable as buses or taxis won't allow a bike on board. Go through the Bike tour on railway trail page for details. We are wanting to rent either scooters or minicars for 24hrs while our ship is docked. Is there available public parking near the cruise ship terminal?
Is the area safe enough to leave a rental? Thank You. Yes there is a parking near the cruise berths and that's safe. All cruise passengers park their rentals there. I am trying to determine the best way to travel from Kings Wharf to St George with stops along the way back to the ship.
Im thinking we should take a ferry one way to St George. After exploring there, we want to take the bus back to the ship so that we can stop at different locations, such as The Swizzle Inn, Warwick Bay, Horseshoe Bay, Somerset Bridge, and maybe other places but thats the basic path Im thinking of so far. Is it best to continue on by bus to the dockyard or take the ferry from Somerset Village at that point?
Thank you for your assistance. Hi, there is a transport pass works for both public buses and ferries which you can purchase at the Royal Naval Dockyard referred as Kings Wharf by the cruise lines but it happens to be the name of the pier. You can get it right next to the pier Somerset village is almost next to the dockyard Take a bus from St.
Continue on one of these buses to get to Hamilton city preferably 10 or 11 because the route is shorter. At Hamilton City you have two options St George to Dockyard by bus with a transfer at Hamilton would easily take more than two hours non-stop. Good luck! A small train came right to the door of the ship to take passengers to the clock tower to shop..
It seems now we have to walk to the end of the dock. Being seniors who really can't walk that distance the cruise ship managed to get my 86 year old husband to the end of the dock we took the train.. But found ourselves stranded when we were done.. Spoke to cruise ship they suggested we contact you.. We are trying to plan our annual cruise Sept 1 of and would like to know if the service has been improved.. The trolley train a free shuttle moves through the dockyard during summer and between am to 6pm.
It stops at various points within the dockyard including several attractions, shops, restaurants etc and one can hop on and off. Cruise ship passengers can board the train at the stop located at the end of North Arm a meter walkway from the cruise berths.
It won't come right up to the cruise piers. Is there any easier way to get to Gombeys from the Dockyard? Also - what would be the best beach for easy access for an 86 year old - short walk, soft sand and facilities? Hi, the direct fun bus from dockyard to St.
Davids was introduced only as an experimental case and there is no such regular service. To get to Gombeys bar on Clearwater beach at St. Davids, you can take a ferry to St. George and then bus 6 not all services reach Clearwater, so ask the driver. Snorkel Park Beach is within dockyard itself, short walk from the piers and has all facilities.
There are regular services of beach shuttles minibuses from the dockyard to Horseshoe bay beach. The beach shuttle goes right up to the parking lot and then it's a short walk to the beach. Horseshoe has all facilities. Just found out that the Norwegian Escape will not be visiting Bermuda as scheduled next Wednesday. Was this decision made because the port was closed by Bermuda authorities or did Norwegian make the decision.
Best Regards,. It seems Norwegian is cancelling cruise calls to Bermuda because of hurricane Florence. Hi first I want to thank you for all the details on your side. It's very helpful. I am traveling with a group of 20 to Bermuda via cruise. Since we have elderly and young kids, I am trying to plan the best way to get to horseshoe bay without chaos.
I am sure everyone on the boat will be rushing to get tickets at the dockyard. I want my family to be set and not having to line up for a long time. Do you have any contacts that I can reserve the minibus ahead of time or even hire the driver for a day? Hi, minibuses in Bermuda can usually seat up to 15 persons. There are several companies that offer minibuses to private groups for transfers and tours. Here are few minibus operators When renting a scooter for 24 hours, is there a place to park them if your staying on the ship?
Thanks for your time. Yes, there is ample scooter parking near the cruise piers at Royal Naval Dockyard the main cruise port. Coming into the dockyard on a cruise in July. I don't want to be taking a few buses or other modes or transportation to get there so looking for the easiest option. I know snorkel park is right there but just wondering your suggestion. Daniel's Head? I'm into photography so definitely want a cool atmosphere aside from beautiful water. Hi, there are hardly any sidewalks once you go out of the dockyard cruise port main gate.
While Snorkel Park is located within the cruise port area itself, it's a man-made commercial beach and is not ideal for photography. Black Bay and Sea Glass beaches are about minute walk from dockyard. They are small beaches. Sunset view from Black Bay is excellent.
You need a transport for most other beaches. Bus stop for Jobsons Cove is about minute away from dockyard by bus. Suggest you go through the page Beaches in and around dockyard. Catching a mini bus or cab was very easy. We docked at the Royal dockyard and as soon as you walk down the pier the taxi stand is there.
We were a group of 19 and the transportation officers were very helpful in trying to get us in 1 minibus but they ended up having to split us into 2. The driver was friendly and informative. Definitely look forward to returning and have no concerns about catching cab or minibus instead of paying the cruise line for transportation to the beach and only get to be there 2 hours. We caught the minibus at 11am and didn't head back until 4pm.
Sorry to bother you but you have a webcam at kings wharf that is brilliant, I watch it all the time BUT could someone do something about the audio or speaker that is attached to it. It is getting worse by the day, you cant make out the hooters, the bell nothing any more it is getting so bad. It cant be that hard to repair the speaker or something so that the sound is better thanks.
Hi, I just found your site and the information is very helpful. I am traveling with a group of 21 and not interested in booking transportation through cruise line to Horseshoe Bay. You were the only site I found with rates on the shuttle. I wanted to know if they can accommodate our group and where would I go to board or pay for it?
Hi, most shuttles are seaters, few have larger capacity. Shuttles line up near the cruise pier. You can pay directly to the driver or buy tickets in front of the shuttles. You mentioned in one of your transportation questions that the quickest way to obtain the 15 ticket for bus and ferry travel option from the Dockyard arriving Wednesday am on the Celebrity Summit would be for one member of my group to go to the Mangrove Post Office in Somerset and then bring the tickets back to the pier.
I found the appropriate bus schedule and determined that the earliest buses to Somerset were at , , and I'd just like to ask because I couldn't find a specific list of times at EACH stop in both directions about what time a bus might depart Somerset, going back to the Dockyard. Additionally, I was wondering if you have any idea how long the lines at the Dockyard are to purchase the 1 day passes, as my husband was thinking of either bringing exact change for that first bus ride to Somerset vs.
Thanks for being so patient with all of our complex tourist questions. Your patience clearly knows no bound and you are to be congratulated on helping so many strangers to enjoy Bermuda to the fullest! Hi, it takes 53 minutes on an average for a bus to reach Somerset from Hamilton and another 9 minutes to reach dockyard.
So refer to the bus schedule of route 7 or 8 , add 53 minutes to the start time at Hamilton, and you will get the timings when the buses would be at Somerset while heading towards dockyard. Unfortunately, there is no other easier way to know. Here is another option, instead of taking a bus, your husband can take a ferry to Hamilton paying by cash. Takes 20 minutes one way. Tickets, passes and tokens are available at Hamilton ferry terminal itself.
He can then return by the next ferry. This may be easier. If he can take the first ferry at am, he can be back at the dockyard by 9am. Check the ferry schedule for all timings. Sometimes there are long queues at the Visitors Information Centers VICs at the dockyard, particularly when more than one cruise ships are on port. In such a case, it's better to avoid the VICs located next to the berths, and instead walk down to the one few minutes away. Chances are that this VIC would have a shorter queue.
I will be visiting Bermuda at the end of August. Very excited as I have been wanting to visit for over 15 years. Just finally making this happy! Thank you! Only one-day pass is available at the dockyard. You can however pay by cash in both bus and ferry in exact change in either US or Bermuda currency only coins.
You will get all passes, tickets and tokens at Hamilton ferry or bus terminal. I don't believe we will be doing any other traveling around the island so after reading all the information it would appear that purchasing tokens would be the least expensive but appears that they are not available at the dockyard. Is there anywhere close to the pier that they are available or at that point are we just better off paying cash fare?
Thank you so much for your help! Pay in cash for the Hamilton ferry. At Hamilton ferry terminal you can buy tokens or even tickets for rest of your travel up and down. Some is us would like to visit Horseshoe Bay and are somewhat confused about getting there.
From what we are reading, there was a shuttle from the pier but it was discontinued. Can you please help us figure this out. Thank you so much. Your articles have been very helpful answering many of our questions and we are looking forward to visiting Bermuda as a family! Last year the shuttles were run by the dockyard management.
This year these are private shuttles. To the cruise passengers, there is no difference. You have to take a short walk away from the royal naval dockyard to reach the public bus area. There is a canopy and chairs set up for your wait, but when the driver arrived, he only took a few people saying he had to "leave room for the locals". Traveled by NCL cruise ship, 1st week June The VICs in Dockyard do not sell ticket or token for the bus for 4 adults going to horseshoe bay.
We were obliged to pay in cash BUT, bill is not accepted quite crazy!! So obliged to find 20 coins of 1 dollar. Welcome to French tourists in Bermuda. Can someone tell me from the Royal Naval Dockyard where is the closest place for me to buy the 15 ticket booklet and what bus or route to take to get to there and approximately how long.
Our family will be visiting Bermuda this summer on the Norwegian Breakaway. Horseshoe Bay is on our list of places to visit. Our 10 year old daughter has special needs and uses a wheelchair. Will the mini bus from the Dockyard to Horseshoe Bay be able to accommodate her and her wheelchair- it folds up like an umbrella stroller.
Also, do you know if Horseshoe Bay has a sand wheelchair available for rent once we get to the beach? Hi, usually the beach shuttles do not take wheelchairs of any kind. However you can make a request to the driver. Sometimes depending on how full the bus is and extra space availability, they may allow. Beach wheelchairs are available on rent at Horseshoe bay beach but in limited number. You should not depend on that particularly on high season. Your best option would be to take a taxi most take folding wheelchairs in the boot.
Can you please tell me exactly which buses to take and how to get from Royal Naval Dockyard to Gibbs lighthouse then to horseshoe bay beach and back to the royal naval dockyard? Take bus 7 from Dockyard. From there a walk for bout yards along Lighthouse Road and then left into St. Anne's Road for yards to reach the lighthouse.
After the visit, get back to South Road. You can then walk for about a mile along South Road towards east or take bus 7 again. From the beach you walk back up there is also a shuttle to the South Road bus stop. Take bus 7 for dockyard going towards west. You will be back at the dockyard in about 35 minutes. Range wise? Yes if you are closer to the cruise pier i. Wi-fi signal may be weak towards the water side. We are arriving on the Celebrity Summit next week.
Can you please tell me the closest place to the dockyard where I can purchase books of 15 transit tickets. Take a bus and go down to Mangrove Bay Post Office closed on weekends or take a ferry to Hamilton ferry terminal - you can get book of tickets at both places. Buy token or pay by cash for the first time. I have a map of Bermuda that was sent to me and it says the dockyard is a WiFi hot spot.
How does that work? Not free. You can pay online from your iPad or Laptop with your credit card and use the wifi. In your info, it looks as if that is not available at the Visitor's Center. What would be the closest place, in proximity to the cruise ship, to make this purchase.
Thank you so much! Take bus 7 or 8 from the dockyard and go down to the post office 8 minutes ride , pay one way fare in exact change Bermuda or US currency. A very comprehensive, easy to find information about Bermuda and what it offers. Well done. Web site almost a secret that should not be.
Been to the pub at the Dockyard and never knew it had a brew tour, dine and taste. Ditto minivans and the easy to find cost for 'Regular' service from the dockyard. One question Just the way the cost is stated. Have recommended your site to several others. Thanks for your comments. We are interest in purchasing a 3day pass. Are the passes available at the Kings Wharf Docksite?
Hi, yes, you will get the passes from the visitors information center located at the dockyard itself close to the cruise ship pier. There is a ferry dock at the dockyard. Bus 7 and 8 run between dockyard and Hamilton takes about 1 hour. Bus 7 goes by the beautiful south shore beaches including Horseshoe Bay Beach. I am going to be cruising to Bermuda in July and will be there for three days.

On Mondays they usually stay open until 10pm because of the ongoing weekly festival 'Destination Dockyard' held at the dockyard complex. Yes you can. Hi Paul, I'm not sure if you can get Coors Light in the dockyard.
The Bonefish bar is located next to the dockyard ferry point. The cruise ship offers many excursions, but I'm wondering if I can access the beach and town on my own. What is in walking distance from the dock? Can we walk to the craft market and snorkel park easily?
Can snorkel equipment and lounges be rented there? How would we get into the town to see the colorful buildings? What do you recommend. We will only be in Bermuda all day on Monday Aug 5 and till 4pm on Tuesday. Hi, Yes the Craft Market and Snorkel Park Beach are inside the dockyard complex and within easy walking distance from the cruise pier.
You can rent snorkel gears, lounge chairs and umbrellas at Snorkel Park, but they are quite expensive. There are several other great attractions in the dockyard which you can explore on foot. Check out the following link for details: Dockyard Attractions. You can easily access Hamilton City the capital and the main commercial center by ferry. Take the blue route direct ferry after lunch.
It takes only 20 minutes to reach Hamilton from dockyard. You can then walk around and explore the place. Go through the self guided Hamilton Tour. I suggest that you buy a 2-day transport pass from the visitors information center at the dockyard right next to the pier.
The bus 7 from dockyard goes by all these beaches, and you can hop on and off. On your return, you can again take bus 7 to get back. I know the cruise ships usually sell stamps but if they dont't do you know if I can purchase stamps at the Visitor's Center? Also, are their mailboxes at port King's Wharf or do I need to go to a post office to mail post cards? You will get postage stamps only in Post Offices. I haven't seen any mailbox in the dockyard. Here is a link to all the post offices in Bermuda: Bermuda Post Offices.
I would think that they get very crowded when the ship lets people off at one time. Are there any other places at the Dockyard that we can pick up a pass? Can a pass be bought and sent to the U. This is a great website! Thank you for your help. Only if you know somebody in the island, can the passes be bought in advance and sent across.
Other than the VICs, there is no other place issuing passes in the dockyard. Another option is to take a bus, pay exact change and go to the nearest Post Office in Sandys to buy the passes. This is however possible during the regular office hours on week days only. Raj, its me Carole holding, Happy new year. Just read yesterday your comments about Bermuda Duty Free Shopping. I own and operated for 3 years now a large duty free shop in Dockyard at Heritage Wharf, the only shop there which services the Norwegian Cruise line and other ships who berth at Heritage Wharf pier during the cruise season!!!
Though you should know The approximate sq. I also offer daily RUM tasting and rum cake tasting to passengers at this pier. The reason that the huge ships can get into the Kings Wharf and Heritage Wharf but not the Hamilton Docks is a quietly kept historical secret The U.
Government wanted their nuclear submarines to sail into Bermuda right to the dock without surfacing so satellites could not detect them. It was either or I believe. The entire channel was dredged and blasted to a very deep level. It was a quietly done project. The bid my father submitted went to Virginia. That's the reason the big ships can birth there and not in other parts of Bermuda. Town Cut in St. George's was also dredged. During the dredging canons were dug up, old Bermuda bottles and British navy memorabilia were donated to the Dockyards by my father.
I am coming to Bermuda dockyard on a cruise ship with about 80 passengers, most of them students. I would like to take them to Horseshoe Bay. Is there a bus that I can hire for this?
