Enjoy breath-taking views and be captivated by the astounding beauty of tropical hills and farm lands of Antigua.
Your friendly driver will take you on an eye-opening drive through the lush tropical rainforest and to small fishing villages. Your destination is Cades Bay where you will begin your kayaking journey.
After a safety briefing and introduction, you will be given your colorful kayak where you will set out through the picturesque mangroves on the pristine waters. The mangroves are a home to birds, aquatic creatures and also acts as a nursery for the plants as the mangroves play such an important part of this ecosystem on this and many other islands. Your guide will share with you a wealth of information as you paddle, explaining the relationship between man and nature.
If you do not wish to kayak, there is a beautiful boardwalk built through the mangroves and you can take a guided walking tour through this same area. Your guide will explain all about your surroundings on this personalized walk.
Once both groups meet at the beach, all guests will then travel to Cades Reef by boat. The reef area is one of Antigua's most beautiful spots for snorkeling and swimming. The calm, crystal clear waters lap gently to the shore of a beautiful and secluded beach where if you do not wish to snorkel you can simply sit back and relax.
A complimentary fruit or rum punch will be waiting for you as well as lunch served from a local beach-side restaurant. After your time at the beach, you will take the boardwalk back to your waiting vehicle and be returned to the pier area and your ship.

The kayaking and snorkeling was fun; we got a taste of Antigua beaches and the reef. Just right for a 4 hour trip. The people who took care of us were very friendly and entertaining. The beach stop was just the right thing after the snorkeling. Beaches in Antigua are some of the most beautiful in the Caribbean.
Very nice mix of snorkeling on reef--saw rays, turtles variety of fish, kayaking calm waters in mangroves, beach time --friendly helpful staff-would do it again

We saw some very lovely parts of Antigua and the snorkel part of it was in beautiful water with coral reefs. I've seen more variety of fish in other snorkel tours I've taken, and the coral was mostly not in great shape. But the water was great and there were not too many people on the tour which made it more relaxing. The kayak portion was mostly through a mangrove and probably could have been skipped. But our driver was fantastic and entertaining - best I've had - and bought us some local beer and pineapple to try after someone asked about it.

This was a great tour that we really enjoyed. Got bit by the no see-em bugs more more than we cared for. The guide was great, the kayaking was fun and the snorkeling was the best we experienced while in the Caribbean.
