Group Tours

Several tour operators include BAMZ on their schedules. Check with your hotel’s front desk, cruise ship activities co-ordinator or a local Visitor Information Centre to discover how you can see BAMZ as part of a bus or boat tour. 



Every Bermuda taxi driver knows the way to our doorstep! Ask the driver to take you to “The Aquarium.” (That’s how most Bermudians refer to BAMZ.)

Map of Bermuda

Bermuda is located in the Atlantic Ocean about 700 miles east of the United States coast. Many people mistakenly believe the Island is part of the Caribbean. In fact, Bermuda is hundreds of miles north of the Bahamas. It supports the northernmost coral reef system in the world and has a rich diversity of subtropical habitats.

BAMZ is located at 40 North Shore Road in Flatts Village, which is near the geographic centre of the Island.
