Rented a motor boat on August 9th. I had originally booked for the 8th but our cruise ship ran into problems and docked late. They were very accomodating and rescheduled my rental for the next day. Everything was wonderful. Can't thank you guys enough.

We have traveled to Bermuda for the past three summers and have stayed at Grotto Bay Resort. The water sports are included with the all-inclusive package and we make sure to take advantage of this perk. Our family has used snorkeling equipment, paddle boards, rafts,...More
