View map in satellite mode. Our boat docks right by the pointer. Floating bar Calico Jacks is to the left of the pointer.
Easy walking distance from all ships berthed in Dockyard.
Do not ask where Hartley’s , or the helmet diving is located. If in doubt ask for the moongate in Dockyard. This is a concrete circle, like a life saver, or a pineapple ring stuck on edge into the ground. A larger, louder, land mark, is the floating bar Calico Jacks. It is just to the left of the orange pointer marking our spot. Our vessel, Rainbow Runner, will arrive about 30 minutes before departure, and dock right next to the moongate and Calico Jacks. There is a rainbow design on the side of our fly bridge, with not a pot of gold at the end, but rather a golden diving helmet.
We are a two minute walk from the ferry stop, a four minute walk from Norwegian’s Heritage Wharf docking space, and an eight minute slow walk from Kings Wharf used by the Celebrity and Royal Caribbean ships.
The above Royal Navy Dockyard panoramic photo is taken from near the end of Heritage Wharf (used by the NCL ships), looking southwest. To the left you see Anthem of the Seas passengers lining up to get back aboard after an awesome Bermuda holiday. Continuing towards the right there is a taxi and bus parking. You can also see the two towers of the Clocktower Mall. Above the mall is the garrison called Casemates (was later used as a prison). Below the two towers of the mall is the Moongate. Below the Moongate is the back of our boat. In front of our boat is the fun loving, plank walking, music pumping, rum drinking Calico Jacks. It is also the departure point of fly boarding Coconut Rockets(in center of photo).
