But after reading this description of the Goslings Taste of Bermuda Sunset Cruise, we knew that this was a shore excursion that we would enjoy:
Explore brilliant seascapes and experience a real taste of island life on this 90-minute fun cruise, guaranteed to put you in the Bermuda spirit. You will cruise the calm waters of Great Sound at sunset, viewing the beautiful homes and tranquil bays, while learning about the rich history of Bermuda, local traditions, and the story behind Gosling’s Rum—Bermuda’s oldest business. The on-board “Rumologist”—a serious professional—will introduce you to a local liqueur and three different local rums. Be sure to sample the delicious local rum cake. Watch as the crew prepare Bermuda’s national drink, the Dark’n Stormy, and discover the true secrets of the Bermuda rum swizzle. Gosling’s Rum is one of Bermuda’s few exports, and is by far the most popular. During the cruise, you will have the opportunity to purchase Gosling’s products at duty-free prices, so you can savor the taste of Bermuda long after your visit.
We booked the tour.
It was a beautiful evening.
Which do you like better — rum or sunsets?
