We took a short van ride through Antigua. Our driver shared lots of information about the islands history and its current goings on. The ride was lovely. We came upon a home and walked right through their beautiful gardens, come to find out these people owned the tour. It was gorgeous. We all loaded into a boat, all with life vests on and took a short ride over to our kayaks. We were given instruction by our very competent guides, helped into our kayaks and we were off. The water was so clear and calm, I could have stayed there forever. Our guide shared all sorts of info. about the mangroves and the sea life beneath us. Just incredible. I thought it would be a lot of work but it really wasn't, my boy scout family had all kayaked before and this was to be my first time, I loved every second of it. We paddled around for quite a bit to different areas to see the life beneath us and then it was back to our boat. Once we were all safely aboard we were off to an island where we hiked a short bit to the top of a hill and had breathtaking views all around us. Some people stayed back to see the island the rest of us got back on board the boat to snorkel. We weren't far from the island but we were taken to a nearby reef. We had a great time, everyone saw so much. We boarded again and went back to the island for a bit of a rest. It was time to go back, our trip was done, or so we thought. We boarded our boat and went for an awesome ride back to the home of the owners and there we were served rum punch or non-alcoholic punch and freshly made bread. We sat in Adirondack chairs overlooking the ocean on a hill under beautiful tropical plants and chatted with the owners and pet their dog. They gave us fresh wet towels to wipe the sea salt from our faces, there were even clean facilities for us to use. They were the kindest people to share their home with our family, even if it was just for a little while. We've done many excursions on many different trips and this was my favorite. I so strongly recommend this trip, for our family it was just outstanding.
