$150 for tour. Bud Light $9. Packed in like sardines. Walked off and watched the race on tv. Huge let down and waste of money.

Thank you for taking the time to write. The Reef Explorer has been chartered by Island Tour Centre and ACBDA for the spectator program, as a result they have set all ticket and bar pricing and it was not something that was under our control.

This was a fun afternoon boat ride. We feed the fish and saw sea turtles. Captain Jessie let the kids sit in the Captain seat. A must do in Bermuda for all ages.
