Bermuda’s Ferry System

SHARE

Bermuda is a place of incredible beauty, and there is perhaps no more beautiful way to get from point to point on the island than by boat.

With four routes in total, Bermuda’s ferry system aims to give you access to the major parts of the island, providing for fantastic views of Bermuda’s waterways and pastel coloured houses along the way.

Out of the four routes, the two most likely to be used by visitors are the Blue Route which travels from the City of Hamilton to Dockyard, and the summer time Orange Route which travels from Dockyard to St. George’s.
