BDA Watersports is Bermuda’s longest running water sport facility having been in business for over 30 years. Tony Roache started the company in 1986 with just enough kayaks to offer lessons. Over time the business expanded and now offers jet ski tours, motorboat rentals and paddleboards in addition to kayaks.
Many have worked at the marina over the years including Tony’s 3 children. Although they have all completed university and are now in full time employment, working at the marina created some of their most treasured memories growing up, and is etched into their character.
In 2019, Tony made the decision to retire in his early 70s. His youngest son, David Roache and partner Shima Sarabi couldn’t stand to see the business wound up and invested to keep the doors open. “The young men and women that have grown up working here or that continue to work here are considered family, and the service they provide is what keeps our guests coming back.”
BDA Watersports is the leading watersports facility in Bermuda, providing jet ski tours, motor-boat rentals, paddleboards, and Crystal Kayaks at the most competitive prices on the island. We strive to keep our equipment in great conditions and currently have the newest fleet of Sea-Doos, motor-boats and kayaks in Bermuda. We have gained six years of accreditation from Trip Advisor in a row for our 5-star service, good prices and Bermudaful hospitality. Our goal is to give customers the chance to live in the moment while exploring the mesmerizing turquoises the ocean has to offer, making memories to last a lifetime.
