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

Kayaking, snorkeling, and hiking allowed us to experience the islands close up. We saw many kinds of sea life, sea birds, and amazing views while passing through the mangroves. Ernest was knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly!

Just back from a wonderful time spent on the nature tour. Great time kayaking, we saw sea cucumbers, jellyfish and a huge starfish. Earnest, our guide was brilliant, had a great sense of humour and was very friendly. One of our party was suffering from sunburn and Earnest was very considerate and kept the kayaking shorter and spent more time... More

Had such a great time with Ernest and crew. Great boat ride to the mangrove area and informative kayak through "natures nursery". Then off to an amazing reef to snorkel and then time on a secluded beach. Took this tour off the Royal Princess. Highly recommend

This is a fabulous way to explore the nature of Antigua if you are only on the island for a short stay. We took this excursion from the Royal Princess when she docked at St Johns'. 30 mins in a mini bus across the island gives you an idea of the lifestyle away from the town. Then we arrived at...

Warm, friendly service. Very knowledgeable about the mangroves. This is a speed boat that takes you to a kayak excursion in the mangroves. Very educational and fun. Following kayaking, you are off to a beach to swim or snorkel. The tour ends at the owners home where you relax with rum or tropical punch and a light snack. It was... More

Introduction to kayaking in the mangroves with Ernest and his mate Hercules. Both were fantastically friendly and informative. After kayaking we were taken by outboard boat to snorkel off Great bird island. Nice coral and a variety of fish in the fairly shallow waters. After half an hour we were taken to the island for a relaxing time on the... More
