05/27/20Deal of the Day

We’re still in the midst of Phase 2 here in Bermuda, which means our economy, and more importantly our international airport, won’t fully reopen for several more weeks. When that will be is anyone’s guess, but what remains clear is that our tourism sector must focus on the intra-island economy in order to survive. That means businesses that once thrived on tourist dollars must stay afloat with ours. And fortunately, one of my favorite local businesses is offering a stellar deal for Bermuda residents at the moment.

Namely, Sail Bermuda, which runs half- and full- day charters aboard its 47-foot luxury catamaran, Wyuna. Fully outfitted with paddleboards, crystal clear kayaks and fluffy bean bags on its spacious trampoline, the boat is one of the greatest ways to explore Bermuda on the water. Don’t forget: Bermuda is not one island, but an archipelago of more than 180 islets and cays. On your very own crewed catamaran this unique fact becomes evident the moment you shove off from the dock—and right now, you can save some serious cash if you a book a private cruise.

From now until June 30, Sail Bermuda is offering an additional hour free on its three- and four-hour cruises—what its calling their Phase 2 Special. That means a three-hour charter for eight people or less now costs $800 (instead of the regularly priced $1,200) and a four-hour cruise now costs $1,200 (down from $1,600). Even better, Sail Bermuda has waived all BYOB charges, which means you can also bring your own booze, without having to pay any additional corkage fees. And with complimentary pickup from any central ferry dock (i.e. Belmont, Darrel’s Wharf, Albouys Point, etc.), getting aboard this fully outfitted, luxury catamaran couldn’t possibly be easier.

So what are you waiting for? With warm breezes and sunny skies boating season is officially in session, so hop aboard my very favorite catamaran for a fantastic day under the Bermuda sun. Your wallet, and the good folks at Sail Bermuda, will thank you.
