King's Wharf
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

Kings Warf is basically as far away from the rest of bermuda as possible. It is the opposite end of the island from the historic town of St. George with the modern town of Hamilton in right in between them. That said, it had a few things working for it. First, there is an Oleander scooter rental company outpost right there. If you make you reservation in advance it is cheaper then doing it after arrival. Picking up our scootter was really quick, and we were able to park it right at the dock next to the ship overnight. it could not have been easier. The island is really easy to navigate, and once you get used to the other crazy drivers the winding roads were lots of fun. The roads in Bermuda are dangerous though so be careful. There is also a bus station there, which i never used, and a ferry terminal. The ferry is $4 per person per ride, and the ferry to Hamilton was only about 20 minutes. I was also able to bring the scooter on board which was helpful on the day I wanted to drive a bit further. There is a ferry that heads to St. George from there too (although no scooters allowed). Hamilton was great for eating and shopping. On Wednesday night there was a fun street fair. St. George was beautiful, but reduced to a few historic house museums and gift shops. it was a little like South Street Seaport in NYC. Also at King's Warf was a great bakery with rum cake they made fresh right there, as well as a few restaurants and shops. Nothing to write home about. The snorkel beach which was my least favorite of the few I went to was perfect for the last day when you want to make sure to be near the ship before sailing for NYC but still want something to do. it was only a 10 minute walk and was great after I turned in the scooter and still wanted to get in my last little bit of beach time.
