There are many great places in Bermuda, and the nine parishes all offer some amazing views and features. But there is one that has it all, the parish of Warwick, with some south shore beaches and national parks amongst others. It is also the parish that has the most ferry stops on the island. Darrell’s Wharf, is one of these ferry stops as well as one of the attractions of the parish.
Darrell’s Wharf in Warwick is a ferry dock on the Harbour Road, located just at the border between the parishes of Warwick and Paget. The Darrell’s Wharf port is situated on the ferry road that links the parishes of Hamilton and Warwick and is used by local residents as well as visitors of hotels nearby that are not directly served by buses. It offers a quicker alternative to the buses and taxis to go from Warwick’s Parish to Hamilton with a crossing that lasts only 15 minutes.
Darrell’s Wharf in Warwick is more importantly the closest ferry stop on the land for the residents of Hinson’s Island. It is one of the thirty or so islands of the Great Sound and the one closest to the parish of Warwick. Because it is a relatively small island and that the fauna and flora is remarkable, cars are not allowed on Hinson’s Island. For that reason, residents have no other choice than leaving their cars on the main land and take the ferry between the island and Darrell’s Wharf,Warwick every morning and evening.
However, the stop is only an optional stop on the ferry road between Hamilton and Darrell’s Wharf. Therefore, passengers who board at Warwick have to signal the crew in advance if they wish to get off at Hinson’s Island. If they wish to board at Hinson’s Island stop on the way to Hamilton or Darrell’s Wharf in Warwick, they need to raise a flag to divert the ferry from the direct route.

The seascapes are unique with views of the nearby Hinson’s Island of course, but also the Doctors Island, Reid Island and Spectacle Island on the right, and more than a dozen others on the left. A sunset from Darrell’s Wharf, Warwick on the Great Sound is also a magnificent sight not to be missed.
Due to its location at the end of the north shore channel of Hamilton’s Harbour, Darrell’s Wharf in Warwick is an ideal place to watch cruise ships entering or leaving the harbour escorted by tugboats. Used by cruise ships since 1896, this narrow channel is called the Two Rock Passage.
