Overview
Eli’s Original Eco tour is Antigua’s oldest Eco tour. We spend a full day in the North Sound of Antigua where we have 22 uninhabited pristine offshore islands. You learn about the eco systems & the history of the different islands in this protected area. Also the turtle project at Jumby Bay, the reef ball system at Maiden Island, the beautiful and important Mangrove system of Guiana Island & much more. There are two snorkeling sessions (& a snorkel lesson for those who need) along with a nature walk/hike to the top of Bird Island where you might get a chance to see one our indigenous & endangered (nonpoisonous) Antigua Racer Snake. We also visit Hells Gate Island for a snorkel or a climb through a small cave-like structure that goes through the island & comes out over a natural bridge on top – seeing the Atlantic Ocean on one side & Caribbean Sea on the other. Local lunch and drinks are all included in the tour. GREAT for ALL ages!!

This trip has a little bit of everything! History about the island, detailed nature information, fun snorkeling and good food. The captain and the crew made this experience great, would recommend this to anyone wanting to a mixed adventure day.

Me (22) my brother (20) my dad and his partner went on this tour and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The boat wasn’t over crowded and so was comfortable. The hike at Hells Gate was incredible and Bird Island and Snorkelling just as good. What made the trip was the 2 guides. Their

I’m sorry to say we did not take any cash for a tip with us on our tour so the next best thing I can do is give a 5 star review to these hard working guys. From the moment we stepped on to the boat they were welcoming and made us feel we were in very competent hands. Trevor,
