We had a chance to make a day trip to see the Soufriere volcano, and the beautiful island of Montserrat, while on a trip to Antigua & Barbuda. 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.

People come to Montserrat for 2 things - solitude, and the volcano. Neither disappoints! I highly suggest driving around to view the volcano from different angles. One of the best views we had while there was from the pool area of the former Montserrat Springs Hotel. Absolutely fabulous! The two days we were there, the dome was shrouded in clouds,... More

Og to the MVO (Montserrat Volcano Observatory), og Down to Belham Valley, and across it, up on the other side. Go round the island to Jackboy Hill and get an impression from there, including the devastating sight of the old capital Plymouth, now buried deep under debris, lava and volcaic rocks. Be awed at the forces of nature.

This is a not to be missed experience if you travel to Montserrat. The tour offered by Sunny Lea explains in detail about the volcano and how it has changed life here.

Since 2010 the volcano has been fairly quiet, still fascinating to look at, but not interfering with the life of the island. Don't think that you go to Montserrat just to see the volcano, it is a beautiful island and there is loads to do and see. Everybody is so friendly and welcoming, there is wonderful scenery, lovely beaches where... More

I took a day trip via ferry from Antigua to Montserrat with D&J Forwarder Tours. This trip is currently only available on Thursdays. The cost is $150 US, which includes ferry, lunch and guide. If you have not been on a ferry in the Caribbean, be prepared and take Bonine before you travel, it you are not used to choppy... More

Visiting the outskirts of Plymouth and walking across the mudflows of the Belham River is quite extraordinary and very reminiscent of Pompeii in many ways. It is almost unbelievable to think that the Belham River is 40 feet below the current ground level. The roof of the three storeyed "Crowe's" house, once an upmarket guest house and restaurant, is all... More
