It was an amazing tour. You walk under water on a reef with a special helmet over your head, with fresh air constantly pumped into it so you can breathe normally. The tour operator took pictures of us with fish in front of us. You can touch some of the fish. The tour operator feed the fish daily so they are used to people touching them.

Beware that there is an additional charge for the pictures.

Since the fish were trained by the operator, your experience is not really natural. Because of this, I was tempted to give this tour 4 stars instead of 5, but decided to give 5 stars anyway because I was really amazed. They trained these fish better than I trained my dog.

This was amazing! Highly recommended. Greg was so knowledgeable and I had a blast. If I could do this, anyone can. I'm very neurotic and thought it would be scary and claustrophobic. There were honey oat bars, water, and fruit juice. You can buy the pictures and video on the tour. It was fantastic!!! I highly recommend this tour.

We were looking for something different to do in Bermuda and this was it. The owner, Gregg Hartley, began our excursion by giving a brief history of the company and of helmet diving. Next he explained what we would be doing and how it works. He also gave an overview of what we would see and do. Gregg has a delightful personality in which he combines information and humor. He reassures anyone who might have a little trepidation about doing this. Once in the water with our helmets, we all held onto a white tube that kept us connected. Gregg could also lead and direct us using this. He led us to a spot between 2 coral reefs with lots of fish. He has trained fish to do tricks for food. They will come right up to you and even let you pet them. Your whole experience is photographed and recorded so you have a record of this amazing experience. We would highly recommend this excursion to anyone. It was fantastic!

I was a little nervous about going on this excursion to be truthful
I'm so glad that I went!!! This is an experience like no other. The Greg was a wonderful teacher and escort both above and below the boat. I was in awe to see the living reef in Bermuda.I don't have the words to convey the wonder of the sea. Please take my word that this experience is worth every penny. I highly recommend this trip for any age.

I can and #39;t say enough of how amazing the excursion was!! We went on June 10, 2017 and my family had a blast! Greg was very informative. There were three families at the excursion and he made sure that each family had their individual experience. He was great with my 6yr old too!

Greg and his son were amazing. Greg was so patient with my husband who was very timid about going underwater. He allowed him to take all the time he needed and on the 3rd try he was successful and had an amazing underwater experience. Then when we got home we realized that we had lost our pictures and DVD of our experience so Dan called Greg to see if there was any way we could get another copy and Greg once again came through and as they say the pictures are in the mail - Thank you so so much Greg - you are the best and underwater helmet diving is the most amazing thing we have ever done!

We loved this adventure. This was the first time my wife ever dived. She has a hard time getting around on land but had no problem on this dive and loved it. As this is a father son operation, handed down from another generation, the knowledge we picked up on this tour was incredible. We learned more about Bermuda on this cruise/ Dive than we learned on the rest of the trip. Do not pass up the opportunity to go on this amazing adventure.

What a fabulous experience!! It was well worth the money and I would do it again and again and again! The fish came right up to Greg, the owner, because the goes back to the same spot each time so they know him and know he has food for him. The water was gorgeous and being able to see all the fish and coral around was just amazing! If you love the water and want to see if differently especially if you don't know how to scuba dive, then I recommend this wholeheartedly! You won't regret it!
