Hang out with Humpback Whales
Bermuda just happens to be perfectly situated along the migration route of 10,000 majestic humpback whales who travel annually to their northing feeding grounds in Canada, Greenland, and Iceland each spring. In other words? The island offers some of the most unforgettable whale watching in the world. Head to Sargasso Sea during the months of April and May and you’ll have the chance to catch a glimpse of these incredible creatures with your favorite co-workers.

For the best in town, head to Art Mels, where you’ll find a generous slab of fried, freshly-caught fish on two slices of toasted raisin bread with a smattering of hot sauce. Also worth checking off your bucket list? A taste of Bermuda fish chowder, a tomato-based seafood and vegetable stew served with a delicious dash of Gosling's Black Seal rum. Hog Penny and Lobster Pot’s in Hamilton serve up the best on the island.
