On her “adventure day” on the island, Katie Quinn first heads for the open seas on a lobster fishing boat learning the key differences between spiny lobsters and Maine lobsters – and meeting a few uninvited octopus guests as well.
Next, she goes for an exhilarating ride all over the island on a scooter. “It’s hands down the best way to see the island,” Katie gushes.
A favorite spot is Cooper’s Island Nature Reserve, which used to be home to a NASA station, but is now open to the public in all its scenic glory. Eco-tourism aside, it’s a great place to go to forget about all your troubles and just lose yourself for a few hours.
The next adventure is Gibbs' Hill Lighthouse, one of the oldest lighthouses in Bermuda. The view from the top is simply spectacular. 185 steps to the top of Bermuda!
All this adventure makes Katie hungry – how about some pizza? She heads to Rustico for a little comfort food. After she’s sated her appetite, she takes a tour of the Frog & Onion Pub, the only microbrewery on the island. All of the beer is made using Bermuda rainwater! A great end to a Bermuda adventure.
