    I have not, but I have found that it is better and easier to rent the gear there instead of buying your own.

    Average sea temperatures for Bermuda around that time of year are 68 degrees Fahrenheit, so still on the chilly side of things (relatively speaking!). Air temperatures are beginning to warm, too, but bear in mind that the summer season in Bermuda trends toward what you might find on the U.S. mainland around North and South Carolina in June-August. Should be pleasant beach weather but perhaps a bit nippy for swimming. Apparently the locals don't consider it swimming season until around Bermuda Day, which is at the end of May!

    There are loads of tour offerings for exploring Bermuda, from organized excursions to guided walking tours to Segway-propelled adventures. The following link offers some more detail about some of these different options: http://www.bermuda.com/things-to-do/tours--wildlife.aspx. Myself, I'd go the self-guided route, including the ever-popular one of renting a motor scooter and exploring at your own pace. Bermuda also has an extensive rehabilitated rail-trail that stretches almost the entire width of the island. Rent a bike from a local shop like Eve's in either Paget or Hamilton and enjoy the freedom of two wheels. (More useful on the Bermuda Railway Trail can be found here: http://www.bermudarailway.net.) Another useful recommendation is to pick up a copy the tourist board's "Bermuda East to West" for some helpful info on places to see and ways to get around. The visitor information bureaus in towns like Hamilton and St. George also schedule free walking tours, including one with Hamilton's town crier!

    Your best bet is to check with the local taxi companies. They might be able to provide infant seats. Here are some contacts/numbers: Bermuda Industrial Union Taxi Coop (+011-441-292-4476); BTA (+011-441-296-2121); Bermuda Taxi Radio Cabs (+011-441-295-4141); Sandy's Taxi Co. (+011-441-234-2344). Can't guarantee what you'll actually get once you're on the ground, but this should at least give you some peace of mind. Separately, you might want to check with your hotel concierge for their recommendations for the best local taxi companies.
