Best day in Antigua

Enjoyed kayaking with Ernest around the mangroves, seeing jellyfish, sea cucumber and a starfish. Loved riding the boat as well to get to different spots for kayak and snorkeling.

Our family of four (two teenage boys aged 15 and 17 + mom and dad) booked this through our cruise ship while in Antigua. It was a great option. We were met at the port where we boarded a van for a drive to the home base. Once there we got on our life jackets and headed out in a... More

Booked this shore excursion on our recent Caribbean cruise, and at less than £50 each was really good value. Taken by minibus to the site, about a 45 minute drive. Greeted by our guides who were very warm and friendly, and had a wicked sense of humour. Issued with flotation devices and taken out across the bay to the floating... More

We had a fab time with Ernest - he was knowledgeable and fun. This trip is well worth your time. A new drink was even created on our trip...ask for "The Ernest". Cheers to the pirates who protected our punch!

We booked this via an excursion offered by our cruise ship. A driver took us from the cruise terminal in St John's across to the other side of the island, pointing out places of interest along the way and chatting about life on the island. Arriving at our destination, we went onto speedboats and sped out to some mangroves where... More

Ernest and his crew show you one heck of a time. Ernest's kayaking tour is surprising relaxing. He stops often to show you the special wonders of the mangroves. The trip to Stingray Bay is a blast. Afterwards, you view your photos and sip on some Rum Punch! This is a tour we would do over and over again!

This is a great tour to experience, from very informative and knowledgeable tour guides to life filled mangroves and a beautiful white sand beach with turquoise waters. The snorkel was my favourite part of the tour, from the life filled reefs to the stingray and turtle we saw which was pointed out to us as we would never had seen... More

Our excursion consisted of the rainforest zip line activity (for which I have reviewed separately) and then onto kayaking and snorkelling (which this review relates to). On the whole a fab day out- our driver (I think his name was Theodore) was brilliant! Really informative and showed us extra things such as the cricket ground and the Hawkesbill resort as... More

This was the second part of our jeep safari tour. After a short briefing we were whisked off by speed boat to the mangroves. Everyone on the tour apart from myself and my 11 year old son had kayaked before, so the guide gave us a quick demonstration and then we set off. That is pretty much where mine and... More
