Located on the 9 Beaches Hotel and Resort in the Parish of Sandy, the Fantasea Diving and Watersports Centre offers many opportunities to discover and explore the amazing reefs of Bermuda, but also to enjoy its crystal-clear blue waters.
From snorkeling, scuba-diving and snuba – a cross between snorkelling and scuba-diving where the air comes through to a hose connected to tanks on a boat – to jet-skiing, parasailing, kayaking and cruises from where you can swim, Fantasea is a must-stop if you are near Hamilton, Bermuda.
Diving is the core of Fantasea activities and you can either rent equipment, take a course (discovery or certification), go on a 1-tank or 2-tank dive afternoon, or take part to a snuba adventure.
The PADI Discover Scuba Lesson and Dive is a 2.5 hours course that starts with an introductory lesson on the fundamentals of diving, followed by a practice session. You will then go on a guided dive with the instructor in shallow waters (35 feet maximum). The course suits beginners and certified divers who need a refresher after two years without diving.
The Bermuda Snuba Adventure will take you to the 9 Beaches and let you experience the wonders of diving without any of the heavy gear. You will be able to discover the beauty of coral reefs without needing a previous diving experience. Someone on Trip Advisor wrote that it was a
“Great experience snuba diving, great customer service”.
Different types of boat tours take you to the best snorkeling places: catamaran coral reef snorkel tour, glass-bottom boat and beach snorkel tour, Bermuda triangle shipwreck snorkel tour, power snorkel tour and night snorkel tour.
The catamaran tour takes place aboard the Aristocrat, a 55-foot vessel with a capacity of 50 people. On the way to your snorkelling destination, you can relax and sunbathe on the fore-deck, or in the shades of the salon and bar in the cockpit. The catamaran is also equipped with changing rooms and fresh water showers.
A 45-minute cruise will take you to a deep blue oasis surrounded by fringe reefs to explore to your leisure. The dive is under the supervision of instructors ready to give you the best advices to make it a memorable experience.
The glass-bottom tour is a shoreline cruise to the Sea Gardens and the wreck of the Vixen. You will have the opportunity to spot turtles and many varieties of fish before heading to a small beach where you can choose to snorkel or relax. Another tour aboard the same Looking Glass takes you to above a shipwreck site and to a reef where you can snorkel.
The Power Snorkel is a tour where you snorkel with an Aqua Scooter, skimming just below the surface faster than you could ever swim. Finally, discover the other side of the marine life with a night snorkel expedition for which you will dive with your own undersea dive light.
