America isn’t the only country to have a wild west. Bermuda’s remote west coast is wild in the untamed sense of the word. The shoreline in this part of the island is characterised by palms, untouched beaches and rocky ledges. On this trip, you’ll get to see it from the sea and your position in a glass-bottomed kayak. You’ll begin the day by taking a shuttle bus through the western parishes, to a calm-water beach. Here, your experienced guide will teach you how to use a kayak safely. At this point you’ll receive a life jacket, which will be your green light to get into the water. The itinerary for this kayak tour isn’t set in stone. Your guide will take you to the places that are best for the day’s conditions. But you can be sure of seeing some uninhabited islands and beaches that haven’t seen footfall for months. You guide will point out the wildlife as you manoeuvre through the waves. This part of the island is a hot spot for longtails, egrets and herons. Through the glass bottom of your kayak, you’ll also be able to spot local crustaceans and, if you’re lucky, a turtle. You’ll have chance for some down-time on a quiet beach before you return to the port.
