I went on the eco tour with my pre-teen and teen, and this boat trip entertained all of us ever single minute! At first, we took in the beautiful north-east coastline of Antigua while riding out to different islands and hearing about the wildlife (including the rich people who have settled Long Island). We then headed to Devil's Bridge where we snorkeled around (rather than hiking up it as some others did). Here we saw, among other magical things, squid swimming in beautiful synchronized motion. Next we rode to Great Bird Island (my kids still tease me for calling it Big Bird Island...) and were fed a delicious lunch. Two of us are veggies and had plenty of choices (pasta, leafy salad, plantains and a green banana salad). We even had a little time to swim here and saw a sea cucumber and a huge hermit crab in a conch. After lunch, we went to the reef off of Great Bird Island and that was simply magical. It would have been nice to spend a bit more time there, because this was the most special spot in terms of snorkeling. There was an option to stay near or on the boat, but the crew offered life jackets to less strong swimmers, so even they were able to experience all the wonder. The crew (Tyrese and Adion - spelling?) were really fun and nice, had constant banter with my 12yo. We loved them! The whole tour was magical, we are so happy we did it. The day flew by and it gave us so many amazing memories. Did I even mention the sea turtles we saw from the boat?

This was my third visit to Antigua and my third time with Adventure Antigua. The first time I took a tour with Adventure Antigua, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Well, that first experience was good enough to get me to book two more times. If you are arriving by cruise ship (like I was), you only have to walk a few minutes from the pier and right near the ship to get picked up. This is a top notch company with a top notch crew and boats. The 3 different tours offered by Adventure Antigua offer something for everyone. It’s really nice to get off the ship and not be with an organized excursion with dozens of people. Adventure Antigua keeps the numbers small on each tour so you get personalized service. The crew will literally do anything you ask and they will offer you drinks, etc. during the tour. I have done the Eco tour and the Extreme tour and I can’t say enough about them. Once you experience one of Adventure Antigua’s tours, you’ll be booking more cruises that visit Antigua. Apart from the thrilling and custom built boats, the stops around the island will make your jaw drop as the scenery is nothing short of amazing. I can never get enough of that “Caribbean Blue” color that surrounds the island. If that’s not enough to make your day, you will be served an appetizing lunch on a remote Island where you eat right at the waters edge. We enjoyed watching Sea Turtles surface for air right in front of where lunch was served. These tours are like no other that you experienced from a cruise ship before. This is how tours should be operated. Thanks for another “Best day ever” experience, Adventure Antigua!

This trip was amazing! My husband and I got picked up from the beach of the resort we were staying at, which was very convenient.

Arion, Jron, and Tyrese made the trip so much fun! They were an amazing and knowledgeable crew. They pointed out different sights as we were traveling down the coast and different wildlife that we saw on the various islands. We even saw some sea turtles in the water.

Hell's Gate was awesome! We got to climb through the cave and walk across the bridge.

Snorkeling was equally as awesome. You have the option to do a distance route or stay closer to the boat. We did the distance route, which was led by Jron. We saw a ton of different fish and corral. We even saw a barracuda and Jron picked up a moon jelly fish to show us all.

The final little island we stopped at had a ton of conch shells - we were able to take one if we wanted to.

This was a great trip and highly recommend it!

Ari, J-Ron and Tyreece were fabulous. Departed from Jolly harbour and ran into engine trouble, which they managed to fix themselves on the water whilst keeping everyone happy and entertained with humour.

Remainder of the trip was fantastic, the whole crew were friendly and super knowledgeable, pointing out all the sights as you travel up the coast and pick people up.

The tour of the islands was really cool, and learning about all the different parts of Antigua was very interesting. The focus is on ecological aspects, which you get a good feel for from the boat.

Hells Gate was wicked, as were both snorkelling spots. J-Ron was great at pointing out all the wildlife including some that was very well disguised!

The turtles at Great Bird Island were amazing, we got to see loads!

Lunch was super yummy and plentiful.

Awesome day, thank you very much!

The tour was amazing and was the highlight of our trip. The scenery was awesome and we couldn't have got to see those by ourselves. The crew was informative, experienced, accommodating and providing great banter and entertainment. The food was out of this world, the jerk chicken and banana bread. I highly recommend!

We had a superb day out with Adventure Antigua on the Eco Tour. I really appreciated that this was not a booze cruise and there was no loud music and that they were keen to point this out on all the advertising.

All of the guides were really friendly and had a lot of knowledge and it was clear that they were passionate about what they were showing us. Charles, in particular, showed so much enthusiasm in pointing out wildlife and sights and offered advice on hiking on the island for our remaining days on holiday.

On the Hell's Gate walk, the guides were really helpful in ensuring our safety. Lunch was delicious (chicken, rice, salad and plantains) and far exceeded my expectations for lunch off a boat on a secluded beach!

For my the highlights were the frigate birds which chased the other birds and were AMAZING, and the turtles we spotted from the boat, as well as the snorkeling. The reef was easily the most spectacular we saw in all of our stay in Antigua, though I was gutted I missed the barracuda!

This tour allows you to see some of the most natural landscapes in Antigua and shows you the island from a whole new perspective.

The day with Adventure Antigua was the highlight of my husband’s and my 10 day Caribbean trip. Captain Guilliano piloted the boat deftly and with safety in mind, not a small feat with the reef-filled waters. Rasheam greeted us warmly and gave us a great overview of what we were seeing along the way. He was helpful and enthusiastic throughout the day. He is obviously proud of his island home.
Being in my mid-seventies, fit for my age and adventurous at heart I appreciated that everyone was encouraged to participate and that accommodations would be provided as needed. Leslie, the charming man who led the limestone cave/bridge hike, gave me the courage and support needed to complete this exhilarating challenge. He was also right there for me as he was for others on the snorkel safari over the reef.
The best part of the day for my husband was the homemade lunch on a beautiful beach Water lapped at our feet as we sat at picnic tables at the water’s edge. Kudos to the chef!
Antigua won my heart!

Charles our guide and Shamel our boat driver were amazing hosts. They provided a lot of information about Antigua and the landmarks we saw passing through the water. They made sure we were safe and looked after when snorkeling and hiking at Hells Gate and Bird Island. It is super unfortunate that the owners of Bird Island are enforcing a fee for the view there. Nature is to be shared with everybody. The lunch provided, drinks and wonderful service was all worth it! Thank you!

Booked through Nexus Experience desk at the Royalton Hotel and picked up (on time) at the beach. The minute we stepped on board Capt Shamal, Trevor & Kadim put us at ease and made sure we were welcomed to the trip. We picked up others from St John’s and Dickinson Bay. The crew imparted their local knowledge (antiguapedia!!) with facts and tales.

The weather was fantastic and all of the activities were all voluntary, no pressure from the crew. We enjoyed a swim and a climb at Hells Gate, a swim and a hike at Bird Island and some snorkelling on the reefs nearby. En route we saw turtles and rays. The snorkelling groups were led my Trevor and Kadim; again no pressure to participate.

Lunch was a nice combination of chicken, pasta and salad and on the way back we were treated to rum punch and banana bread. Thanks crew to a great day out. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful eco boat tour with Trevor on December 30, 2019. We boarded in jolly Harbor and picked up passengers all around the shore. Then at hells gate we were surrounded by unexploited islands and beautiful breezes.

Trevor made sure to be safe and to explain all about what we were seeing it was clear how much he wanted to preserve his Antigua for the future, the marine wildlife, the mangroves, the sea turtles.

I would heartily recommend this tour.
