Art, Culture & Beach
Depart the pier area and take a scenic drive to a local art gallery where artisans practice their crafts.
Enjoy a welcome beverage and snacks and meet a local painter and observe her painting some of her favorite island scenes. Take part in her painting class and have a souvenir of this special day to take home. You will be entertained with stories of Antigua and her past through music and poetry reading spoken in the local dialect.
Local vendors will have their handiwork on display and for sale. You can find arts and crafts, sea island cotton and local clay pottery and some of these items will be produced right before your very eyes.
Take in the beautiful surroundings of the two old sugar mill ruins on the estate as you make your way to the beach. This secluded spot offers swimming for anyone who would like to take a refreshing dip.
At the arranged time, your transportation will return you to the pier area and your ship.

The guide was great and I was the only one to sign up to paint a picture on the beach. Booking this excursion was one of the best

Ms. Jackie was an excellent tour guide and a lot of fun. The visit to the McMillan house was very interesting and filled with history. The grounds were beautiful. The beach was a perfect end to the day and my mom and I made some very professional looking paintings. Ms. Jackie is talented beyond measure and a great person. I highly recommend this tour.
