Southwest of Camden on the south shore of Bermuda, the snorkeling at Warwick Long Bay offers clear water with occasional coral heads. This spot is known to be usually uncrowded and peaceful. In this half-mile wide bay, there are two huge boulders offshore of the western tip of the beach that are popular with parrotfish. Since the best entrances for Warwick Long Bay are off rocky outcroppings, it can be difficult to enter and is recommended for advanced snorkelers. This dive site is located 2.9 miles southwest of Hamilton Harbour.
The snorkeling on Bermuda is best from May through October when the water is calmest and at its warmest, which is not saying much since its always alittle cold. In other months, the water can be in the mid-60F which means you will need a wet suit, and it can be rough. Some of the best snorkeling dive sites are only accessible by boat. While you can rent a boat, if you are not familiar with the waters around Bermuda, you may want to stay in the sounds, bays and harbors, such as Castle Harbour and Harrington Sound. By the way, there is a quicker way to get around the hook-shaped island of Bermuda -- try checking out the Sea Express ferry service with its hub at the Hamilton Ferry Terminal (schedule at 295-4506).
To reach the snorkeling on Bermuda by air, you'll have to use the non-centrally located international aiport, LF Wade International Airport (BDA), on St Davids Island which is located on the far northeast side of Bermuda. The most popular way to get around the island is by renting a scooter.
After a long day of snorkeling, make sure to check out either Mickey's Beach Bar or Ocean Grill at Pompano Beach Club.
Overall, Warwick Long Bay is the 8th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 10 snorkeling dives in Bermuda.
