Rising Son II is Bermuda’s most popular award winning Sailing Catamaran. Independently owned and owner operated, our life’s work is dedicated to superior service and customer satisfaction, with fun and class. Our vessel is a custom built 60 Ft Simonis Sailing Catamaran with all the amenities on-board you could ever need for comfort and entertainment on the water.

Bermuda-born and Licensed Captain Steve ‘Squid’ Smith and his crew are knowledgeable, entertaining and fully qualified to provide you with the perfect day on the water. We will meet as strangers, but walk away as friends with memories of your time aboard the Rising Son II.

We offer regular join-in tours May through November and are available for Private Charter year round. Rising Son II is the perfect vessel for sailing and snorkeling, cocktail cruises, corporate events and getaways, wedding and birthday celebrations and so much more.

10 of us went and nine of us had a great time. The 10th is raging witch and tried her best to ruin EVERYTHING! Captain Steve and crew were very cool and nice. They made it a wonderful trip. We had been booked on a different excursion and switched to this one when the first one was canceled. I'm glad... More

Last day of the season, and a relaxed time aboard the Rising Son. Captain Steve and the crew, brought us around to a quiet cove for some snorkeling and a bit of island sight-seeing, including some time watching the America's Cup cats out for some trials. It was easy to forget these guys were skippering a 60 foot boat! A... More

Steve, Kaliel, and Matt were great! 60 foot catamaran, we had about 20 people on it. Very nice boat, crew were fun and very interactive, rum swizzles flowed freely, music was just the right volume. Took us to an out of the way cove for some snorkeling without the crowds. I will look them up again if I get to... More

Took my granddaughter on a snorkeling adventure. Even though weather was chilly and seas choppy, Captain Steve and crew kept the group entertained and informed. Tucked us in to a quiet bay. Made extra special efforts by taking us on a ocean-side home tour and Eco tour. Those who snorkeled we're not disappointed and those who didn't snorkel enjoyed the... More

There is no excursion like this one! I'd recommend keeping the kids off this boat as it is best for all the adults onboard if kiddies are in earshot or eyeshot. Drink up, swear and have a blast on this boat with it's awesome water toys and neat grottos to explore! The only downside is the attitude of the captain.... More

The Rising Son crew is great. They made the trip fun and entertaining. The cove area that they took us too was beautiful. Unfortunately, we didn't see a heck of a lot. The water is already starting to cool (October), and there were two hurricanes churning up the water so it was VERY MURKY. I wish maybe we could have... More

Booked this trip through the website when we visited Bermuda on the Carnival Sunshine. The crew went out of their way to make sure we were safe and having fun. Elmo explained why there are no sharks in Bermuda and called the area a pool. On our trip there were small children who went swimming, if they can do it... More
