Across from St. George's town square and over a bridge is Ordnance Island, where visitors can see a full-scale replica of Deliverance. The shipwrecked survivors of the Sea Venture built the pinnace (small sailing ship) in 1610 to carry them on to Virginia. The replica of Deliverance is still anchored full-time to Ordnance Island. It's one of the Disney-style adventure sights associated with the King's Square (St. George's main square). In midsummer, its caretakers are outfitted in 18th-century sailors' garb.

Adventure Enterprises owns Deliverance and also runs sightseeing and snorkeling adventures aboard its boat ARGO. Bermuda's only high-speed tour boat, ARGO (which fits neatly into small harbors) takes passengers along the barrier reef, the south-shore beaches, the historic forts, and the billionaires' mansions at Tucker's Town. Call for details, which change seasonally.
