The owners of this excursion run it from their lovely home on the water. The Kayaking was fun and the kayaks were very easy to get in to. (sometimes that can be an adventure by itself) We also had the opportunity to snorkel, but the weather conditions that day were not great for it, but we still had the chance... More

Fortunately our first two choices for excursions were not available. A man standing behind us in line recommended this excursion. We can't thank him enough as this may have been the best excursion we have ever experienced at a very reasonable price. The bus tour, boat rides to destinations, kayaking through the mangroves, scenic hike, snorkeling, tropical gardens of a... More

Amazing excursion! I arranged this trip not knowing that Celebrity also does this excursion through the ship. I ended up saving about $10 per person by booking on my own even though we were grouped with those from the Celebrity Summit. I loved that the kayaking and snorkeling were in a very remote area, so it was very peaceful. The... More

Great excursion. We arranged this through our cruise ship Celebrity Summit. We were picked up in a timely fashion. And escorted across the island. Good tour with narration. Then onto the kayaks, we walked through beautifully manicured tropical gardens to the boat dock. A quick motor boat ride to the kayaks and off paddling around a couple of small islands,... More

We chose this excursion through our ship something we normally never do. They picked us up at the cruise terminal and we rode through Antigua. During the ride we were given information about the island although it was very difficult to hear since we were in the back. We came to an area where we first saw the stingray excursion... More

We were very pleased with this excursion. The Kayaking through the mangroves was fun. The ocean kayaks were extremely comfortable. We got to hold a starfish, sea cucumber, and a prickly sea urchin. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. The motorboat took us snorkeling where we saw different types of fish. Then we went to a small beach... More

This tour started by picking us up at our cruise terminal on our way the driver pointed out sites along the drive. After arriving at the Paddles site we were given a short bathroom break then began a short walk through gorgeous gardens to begin our boat ride to our private island. After arriving at Bird Island we hiked a... More

We went on this excursion while on a Disney Cruise October 6th. From the moment we arrived on property we were treated so nicely. We had time to change into our suits and apply sun screen. We went on a very small hike (not even sure you could call it a hike?) but it was fine by me, a serious... More

This trip was our favourite trip that we went on in Antigua. It was great being picked up from your hotel and driven straight to the Paddles site by Paddles staff. The tour guides were very good and first took us to the mangroves to kayak. Here the guide picked various species out of the water and you were able... More

This was a fun excursion, even if you're a beginner kayaker or snorkeler. You start off with a pretty large group or people on kayaks and go around a few small islands, the tour guides pick of sea life and pass it around for you to look at and even touch. Kayaking lasts about 30-40 minutes and then you head... More
