Great boat ride and rum tasting was fun.

This is a great rum cruise. I was looking for something different to do in Bermuda since this was our 3rd trip and my youngest son was now 18. We met at the assigned time and promptly boarded the boat. The guides were friendly and helpful. We cruised around the island while sampling the Gosling's rum and the local drinks - the Dark and Stormy/Dark and Skinny and the Rum Swizzle. The Gosling's rep gave us a history of the rum and explained how the drinks came about. The sun was setting about halfway through the cruise and they stopped the boat so everyone could take pictures. Everyone in my party enjoyed the trip and I would highly recommend it. You even have a chance to but the rum prior to departing the boat. Great trip.

This tour was amazing!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

This cruise was fabulous, and I highly recommend it. This was my fifth trip to Bermuda, and I thought I had done and seen everything . . . but this was the icing on the cake. This sunset cruise was fun and made for amazing sunset pictures. The crew was funny and attentive. I am glad that I took this cruise and was able to sample various drinks before I went to the store to purchase. But for this cruise, I would not have known about the wonderful golden liquer or had a chance to taste a dark and stormy. This cruise was the highlight of our trip.

It was lots of fun - plenty of rum - just the right amount of time.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

This was one of my favorite tours on the island. You hop aboard the boat, sit down, and the tour guide gives you a very interesting history about rum on Bermuda. You get to sample different types of rums and mixes (Dark and Stormy included). Even if you're not into rum, the guide was hilarious, and knew a lot about the island. The crowd loved him.

Finally, because the cruise is an evening one, you get to see a GORGEOUS sunset. Would strongly recommend this tour.

5-stars!!!! It was informative and entertaining all while cruising. The rum and the history of the family and the making of their rum for 8 generations was interesting. They shared how to make the dark and stormy and we ended up buying a couple of bottles to bring back home. I would recommend this tour to anyone going to Bermuda!
