Ferries can readily be caught at Dockyard into the city of Hamilton harbour, and over to St.Georges. There is also bus service from Dockyard, which heads through Somerset and to the central parts of the island.

Nearby to this accommodation in Dockyard are a wide variety of conveniences and entertainments: moped rentals, five restaurants, a mini-mart, a mall, a visitor centre, and a pharmacy: all within a 2 minute walk. The nearest large grocery store is about a 10 minute bus ride, or 5 minute moped ride from Dockyard. There are also the attractions of Dockyard nearby: glass blowing centre, rum cake factory, museum, Dolphin Quest, art gallery, craft market, and a tour ticket booth. During the Summer months, there is a street fair held in Dockyard each Monday night, where there is live music, gombey dancing and street vendors.

Since the boat is in the marina at Dockyard, it is best to swim at the snorkel park in Dockyard, which is a 2 minute walk away. Heading further east from Somerset, Whale Bay and the stunning Church Bay offer wonderful South Shore snorkeling opportunities as well as pink, shell strewn beaches to explore. (Snorkeling equipment can be rented at Church Bay and several of the larger beaches such as Horseshoe.) A mile and a half along the coast is Horseshoe Bay, and the trio of simply exquisite coves known as Chaplin Bay, Stonehole Bay and Jobson’s Cove secreted between Horseshoe and Warwick Long Bay. All these lovely beaches are within 25 minutes moped ride of the house boat in Somerset.

At Dockyard there is a wide selection of water sport activity companies, which offer jet ski tours, parasailing, glass bottom, boat rentals, snorkeling, fish charters, and much more!

Fine dining nearby would have to include Cambridge Beaches in Somerset and the renowned dining-rooms at The Reefs in Southampton. The Princess Hotel in Southampton and the Waterlot Inn also provides a fine dining experiences along with an excellent golf course.

Port Royal Golf Course and Riddell’s Bay Golf Course would also make you most welcome.
