Bermuda is quite popular amongst sailors thanks to its location in the Atlantic Ocean so near the east coast of the United States. Many sailors flock to the island each year to participate in or watch one of the numerous annual sailing events, or just for a leisurely sea-based vacation. If you're one that is inclined towards adventure, you can sail your own private yacht, or hire a charter to take you to the island.
If you want to get out onto the water, without the complications and cost of sailing on your own you can take an excursion. See the table below for information on area day sailing companies.

The only port of entry on the island is located in Saint Georges Parish, which is great for vacationers who have planned to spend most of their time in this town. As you're sailing in, you'll take the Town Cut Chanel to St. George's Harbour, being careful to steer around the coral reef. Contact the Rescue Coordination Center (ROC) on VHF Channel 16, so they know you're on your away. If you arrive between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, you'll present two copies of your crew list, two copies of all consumable stores, and $15(USD) for your entrance fee before you'll be permitted entry.
If you arrive outside of business hours, you'll be directed to anchor in Powder Hole while you await them to open. Your cruising permit will allow you six months of sailing time around Bermuda, and there are plenty of places to sail to around the island, starting right in Saint Georges Parish.
