We took this excursion through our cruise and we enjoyed it very much. It started with a bus ride, during which we were given great narration about Antigua by our young tour guide. When we got off the bus we boarded a speed boat and were given an exhillirating ride to where the kayaking took place. After a brief safety... More

We had an amazing time on this excursion, seeing part of Antigua, the boat ride to Bird Island, snorkeling and kayaking. it was a great way to see and do many different things! The hosts were gracious and friendly, especially the younger woman serving the punch at the end of our tour, she was so sweet! I did this excursion... More

Best excursion to see views from land, under water, and above. Staff was extremely professional and served amazing rum punch in a beautiful garden. You won't be disappointed!

We booked this excursion thru our cruise line and it was THE BEST excursion of our cruise. This was my second time kayaking, so I was a bit nervous that I may not be able to keep up, but I had no problem. We took a bus from the cruise pier and enjoyed the ride while the bus driver gave... More

Enjoyed a kayak and snorkel excursion during a cruise stop to Antigua. We were shown to our kayaks and were off to explore the mangroves. The pace of the kayaking was leisurely, and can be handled by most people regardless of kayaking experience. After the kayaking portion, we were off to a small island for a short hike to a... More

I would highly recommend this tour. The Kayaking, snorkeling and hiking were outstanding. The tour was very well organized and the it ended with washcloths to freshen up, clean restrooms and delicious banana bread and rum punch in a beautiful garden with wi-fi. Since it is a family run business, the owners thought of every detail and were very hands-on.... More

We took a kayaking/snorkeling/short hike with Paddles, which we arranged through our cruise ship. The trip was outstanding. During the kayaking portion, our guide was knowledgeable and readily shared his expertise with us. The snorkel gear was new and clean (it smelled faintly and reassuringly like disinfectant!) and we saw a variety of coral and fish. After our adventure, the... More

A 2.5 mile leisurely kayak run through the mangroves guided by a most knowledgeable Ennis and trailed by Gary in the safety boat, coupled with a short hike to the top of Bird Island for the most gorgeous view of the pristine blue-green water and some snorkeling around a local reef make this the perfect activity for families and couples....

Not too often one gets an afternoon with such a wonderful mix of activities: kayaking, snorkeling, a wee bit of hiking, a short bus ride, and a little beach time. The kayaking was relatively peaceful and easy, and the beach was a small unspoiled area. The highlight, though, was snorkeling -- no other boats in sight, and a shallower calm... More
