Tour boat operator criticised for ‘poor manners’ on the water
A Spanish Point resident has criticised a tour boar operator for what they viewed as “poor manners.”
In a letter sent to
The Royal Gazette, the resident said that
The Restless Native had been forcing its way closer to the beach at Deep Bay, near Admiralty Park, at the expense of other boaters and swimmers.
The letter reads: “The
Restless Native barges in through smaller boats and if you are a swimmer, ‘beware, you better move, because I’m coming through!’. People and boats that were there before them politely leave. “Remember there are other tourists who swim there besides the ones that frequent your boat tours. If you were a guest in my home, it would be similar to you barging through my home and then rearranging the furniture to your liking.”
Tanis Michelsen, general manager with T
he Restless Native, apologised for any inconvenience, saying that they have been working hard to accommodate both their customers and members of the public.
“We strive to always provide a safe, enjoyable and respectful experience for our guests on-board, other visitors to the Island and our fellow Bermudians,” she said. “
Restless Native has taken measures to try and accommodate the overwhelming demand for water space during the holiday weekends by reducing our water tours by half.”
