Bermuda's territorial waters

Bermuda’s territorial waters are defined as the sea within twelve nautical miles of the baselines. 

The baseline is measured as generally the low water line, except that, between points at 32° 15.2’N 64 °52.3’W and 32° 22.7’N 64° 39.7’W on the coast inshore of Hogfish Cut and Town Cut respectively, the baseline follows the seaward limit of the main reef as shown on Admiralty chart 334 to the west and north of the main group of the islands of Bermuda. 

Where there is a break or passage in that reef, the baseline is a straight line joining the seaward entry points of that break or passage (Bermuda (Territorial Sea) Order in Council 1988).
