I could live in the ocean if I could only breathe under water. I love everything about it… the sounds, the smells, the sights, nothing is more relaxing or refreshing. I grew up next to the ocean so it brings me back to my childhood and elicits some of the fondest memories of my life. Any location that offers great beach destinations automatically draws me so Bermuda was always high on my list of places to visit. With azure blue waters and bold, colorful fish, the snorkeling in Bermuda is some of the best in the world, making it my favorite family activity in the country. It doesn’t take much to fill an afternoon in Bermuda. I just grabbed a snorkel, mask, and fins and made my way to the beach. You don’t have to drive far to find the most beautiful waters filled with coral and tropical fish.
Although I went alone, it would be a perfect way to spend the afternoon with family. The waves at most beaches are minimal making it safe for children and if you already own a snorkel and mask, it’s a cheap way to spend a family day together.
I’m no expert in naming fish, but the bright blue schools of our underwater friends are stunning. It’s like watching high-definition for the first time.
I use to fear what lurked below the ocean waves. Murky waters caused me anxiety. Thoughts of razor sharp teeth and swift predators plagued my mind like a virus. Exploring with a snorkel and mask opened my eyes to the beauty of a whole new world. Elegant sea life moves in unison creating music without a sound. Colorful creatures appear and disappear as fluid and graceful as ballerinas. Grab your mask and explore; Bermuda has opportunities around every corner.
