Great trip out to Hell's Gate with Adventure Antigua - loved seeing where the Caribbean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean through the archway. And great fun to be able to swim out to it and clamber through the cave and over the rocks. Loved it.

There is a story that dates back to days of slavery, the story is not a happy one as the islanders tell it. But Hell's Gate is breathtaking as the oceans fury hits its waves up on it, just a spectacular site to see. Mother nature again shows her fury, her passion, her artistic design...just breathtaking!

We were staying at Grand Pineapple and the trip was organised by their travel desk. We were collected by car and taken to the Sandals resort where we waited for the boat to pick us up from the beach. This was a full day with a tasty lunch provided and very knowledgeable crew. You have a choice of staying on... More

If a stranger says to you - jump into the ocean, swim to the island, crawl through a cave, climb up the rocks, walk across that crumbling land bridge and climb back down again - what is your answer? Well without thinking we jumped and enjoyed every moment - of course we bought the T-Shirt, as we could not take... More

We viewed this from a boat rather than walked and think that we had the best deal. No as impressive as some of the UK geological structures.

We went today by boat, jumped off the back and swam up to the beach in front of Hell's gate. Glad we had a local guide to show us where to go in the cave and assure us bending and crouching would only be a short few moments and you would have enough space you won't feel claustrophobic. There is... More

Cool place to see,swim and walk around. Our daughter really liked the opportunity to go into caves. Just be careful and DON"T bang your head - many people do, despite guides' warnings.

Extreme Island Trip was fantastic. The price is a little high to begin with, but the value was worth the price. We had an awesome family day and swimming with the Stingrays was the icing on the cake.
