We have been operating in Bermuda for more than 60 years so the dedication of the ‘Coastal Walkway’ to Argus represents our long history on the island as well as our commitment to its future environmental sustainability.”
The ‘Coastal Walkway’ is open for visitation at BAMZ, seven days a week (excluding Christmas Day) from 9am until 4pm. For more information, call 293-2727.
