Owner description: Built in the early 1800s, this dockyard is now the largest museum in Bermuda and features exhibits on the island's maritime history.

This site was home to the British Royal Navy for 150 years. Bermuda was a key location b'twn Europe & the U.S. During WW I & II, the dockyard maintained ships for battle. The key attraction here is the Nat. Museum of Bermuda. For $15 (adults), you can see/learn about the island, as well as, the history of the Royal Navy. Otherwise, I believe it was developed primarily for the cruise ship passengers (up to 2 boats dock daily.) The former dockyard bldgs were converted to: souvenir shops, eateries, a brewery, mini-golf, Dolphin Park, Snorkel Beach & a pub. Also, ferry service runs from here to Hamilton. If you're a first-time visitor, I would "save" this for a rainy day or day off from exploring the island.

Love this island and its people. Visited during October during hurricane season but none in sight. The weather was warm and water so very blue. This is a rich island so no peddlers on the beach or in the streets. It is a bit pricey but being and Island vacation spot you would expect it, No bartering here the price is what you pay.

A crowded place when the cruise ships are in (which is most of the time), but shopping, a few restaurants, attractions and traveling options (buses,ferries, etc.) are all available. I especially liked the walking tour which happens on Tuesday and Friday mornings. It's a talk about the history of the area (done with costumes and some humor) and it was free.

Cruised to Bermuda and our group wanted to take the rum swizzle sunset cruise. I do not care for swizzle stick but I went along figuring I could purchase another drink or a beer. I guess the Aristocat premixs the swizzles and that is all they offer. Scotty, the host said it was a swizzle cruise, what did I expect. I have been on other swizzle cruises that offered a friendlier atmosphere and other options. I have been to Bermuda more than 20 times and this is the first negative experience.

This is a beautiful dock yard that is full of history. The national maritime museum of Bermuda is a must and only costs $15. Within the museum is Dolphin Quest where you can swim with Dolphins in a beautiful lagoon run by an amazing staff. There are many activities and shopping available at the dock. You can easily get a taxi there or take the public ferry.
