You can book a tour into this area of the island or if you sail and anchor on the west shore you can carry your dinghy over the sand about 50' and ride in yourself. keep your engine up and follow the markers or a...More
Frigatebirds are beautiful birds which spend most of their time on the wings. It is beautiful to see many of them flying in circles above your head. During the reproductive period you can see the males with the inflated red pouch (late November to February)...More
My wife is more into birds than me, but she convinced me that the trip to "one of the largest breeding habitats in the world" would be worth it. She was right. The boat ride out was a fun in itself, then we came into...More
We did a day trip with John's Taxi Service and Tours and it was his son that took us out on the boat for the FBS. This is such a great experience, hundreds and hundreds of birds, lots of males with their big red chest...More
We were taken to the sanctuary by a lovely man called Guinness!
He was very informative & interesting. He then took us to the beach between the lake & the sea which was beautiful.
It was a very memorable trip.
Hi all, I posted this in the main Antigua / Barbuda forum too, but wanted to increase my chances of people seeing it :) Myself and my partner will be in Antigua the 2nd week of November and cannot wait. We love to snorkel but have a few questions which I hope some of you can answer for us. I have read through the forum for relevant topics, and I'm aware that snorkelling from the beach isn't that great due to sand / visibility and lack of coral, etc. so we are considering going on a...More

I would definitely recommend either Adventure Antigua or Creole Cruises. We found both to be very professional and supportive of anyone less confident in the water. When we spent the day with Creole Cruises they converted our friends daughter from a non snorkeller into a confident one. With both companies we had the option of swim jackets. Hope that helps Donna

Best way to Barbuda - Ferry or Plane (we are unable to take the Sunday Excellence Tour Boat) We would like to see the Frigate Bird Sanctuary, tour the island and spend some time on the beach. I assume there are tour companies at both the airport and Ferry Wharf? Do we need to make a reservation ahead of time? Best Tour company?

The ones I have seen so far include other things in the trip such as kayaking or hiking. Can anyone...More

Wow what a reply! Thank you so much for all that information, very helpful indeed. I'll pass on the dive trips then and will probably leave the snorkel gear at home. We're used to snorkelling the red sea so I don't think it's worth bringing our gear to Antigua. As for Barbuda... Is that a particular company that does that trip you mentioned or do the ferry company do it? Sounds fab. So far, our itinerary is to so the Montserrat heli trip and Shirley heights. We're only there for a week...More
