To see what nature is capable of first hand is a unique experience and one I will never forget. This is like having a sleeping angry giant in your back garden.

A visit to the Montserrat Volcano Observatory gives you a front row seat to view The Lady as residents sometimes call Soufriere Hills Volcano. You can also see videos of the early eruptions and tour the visitor's centre to view spectacular images that you must see to believe.

We stayed just across the former Behlam River and had amazing views of the volcano from the house. It was usually clad in steam/smoke but we had a few clear days.

We took a tour with Sun of Montserrat Island Tours and saw the Volcano from several vantage points. It amazed me to realize that the "clouds" around the volcano is actually gases billowing out and up the side of the volcano! Once I saw that, it was a chilling reminder of how active this is!

Excellent: Seeing the result of the volcano on the island was fascinating and eerie at the same time. A must see if you are visiting Antigua or a nearby island. Wish we had seen the film at the observatory. Sad to see two thirds of the island uninhabitable. Glad we visited. Amazing what nature can do! Disappointed: Booked a tour... More

This is one of the most active volcanoes in the region and to see it from the observatory and various lookouts around the island is quite amazing. The remains of Plymouth are fascinating to tour. Hire a local guide for better access. Definitely worth seeing.

We took the Caribe Sun ferry day trip, which was priced at $155 per adult, $100 per kid & included a guide, tour of the island & lunch. We were driven up... More

We were staying in Antigua and decided to take a ferry to Montserrat where I had heard about the live volcano. I had never seen anything like that. Well, the island is beautiful, the people are so friendly, and the volcano is the most terrifying and amazing thing I have seen. We were taken just downslope where we took photos.... More

THIS a real volcano, I like being there when it was sleeping, I would not like to have been there when it spewed mud and lava and killed 19 people. I would not have liked to be on the Pan-Am Flight that crashed in 1965.
