This was our second trip to Clarence’s Cove within a year. The thing that changed dramatically was that the government has put gates all over the top of the Admiralty House area to keep people from riding their scooters right down to the waterfront. Parking your scooter at the top and walking down to the water is a bit a of a challenge. Luckily, the nice workers in the area opened the gate for us and we were able to ride right down to the water. While we were there, a Fantasea snorkeling trip also showed up with people who were both snorkeling and taking in the beaches. This time, Clarence’s Cove has less visibility than previously – only about 15-20 feet. There had been some fairly strong winds from the north a few days earlier that contributed to the lower visibility. The day we were there, winds were about 10 miles an hour, primarily from the south, but shifting over to the north which made for a small amount of surf, but nothing too serious.
If you want more details about the site, please see our November 2006 trip to Bermuda write up. In contrast to last November, there were very few lobsters present. I believe that is connected to the fact that they go offshore during the spring and summer months and lobster season ends in the early spring. I saw about 10-15 lobsters in only one area of the little caverns that are at Clarence’s Cove. They were mostly high up on the rocks and in crevices.
