“Circumnavigation Tour - Best value in Antigua”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

We did the all-day Circumnavigation tour for our family (4 adults, 3 children). Children under 4 are free. Be sure to book directly with Wadadli Cats to get the best prices; also they will give you a free T-Shirt for each paying person when you book direct.

The Catamaran makes at least 4-5 stops at different resorts/hotels so chances are you won't have to travel far to embark (ours picked us up directly at Jolly Beach - we stayed at Jolly Harbour).

At times the sea gets kind of rough (bring some Dramamine if you are prone to motion sickness) but overall it is pretty smooth. It makes two stops - one for snorkeling (beautiful and expansive reefs - lots of coral and marine life to see) and one for lunch at an absolutely beautiful secluded beach. As for the lunch, it was a nice variety of lightly breaded fish, BBQ chicken, Mac and Cheese Casserole, rice, rolls, etc.

once lunch is served (at the 2nd stop), the Bar is open! unlimited well drinks and canned beer (Carib). Note, we all thought the rum punch was dreadful and avoided it, but the Carib cans filled the void admirably - we had no problem getting all we wanted.

The guides are friendly and knowledgeable. The value is outstanding - $110 for adults and $55 for kids 4-12 plus you get the free t-shirt. probably the best thing we did in Antigua.

“Take the Circumnavigation tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

Took this tour earlier in the week and I couldn't have had more fun. The tour cost $110/person and takes most of the day. The crew is fun, personable, and do a good job of pointing out the sites from the water. You will be picked up by the catamaran from the beach of your hotel at a precise time. The first half of the day is spent picking up passengers (about 40 in all) and going around half of the island, where you'll eventually stop for a snorkel and lunch. The food was awesome (some of best chicken I had all week). Once the snorkel is over, the bar is open until you're dropped off. When the day is nearly over, they pull up to Turner's beach for a little more time in the sun, beach, swim, etc. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who likes the water and sun and can't do a private charter.

“Beautiful Day on the Water Taking in the Sights of Antigua”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

We booked this trip with one of the vendors on the beach - the legit vendors wear an id tag and they are there day after day and issue you a receipt once you have paid a deposit ($25 USD each), I paid in EC (2.6 rate). I paid the rest on the beach before boarding the cat and they gave me a rate of 2.7 for EC and I advised him that I was quoted 2.6 and easily worked with me for that rate, no argument! :-) The cat wasn't overly full of people which was nice! The crew are great and friendly. Its a great tour around the island of Antigua. We were very fortunate to see about 12 dolphins surfacing and diving around the cat and also saw a momma Whale with her baby in the distance, mating season for both. That was a definite highlight! The meal was great, a real home cooked soul food meal. Don't hesitate, go!

“A really nice day out on a boat!”

The crew was great, an awesome lunch and view of the island from a boat was unbeatable. It was a really nice way to spend a day.

“360 Island tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

Get a chance to see the island from the outside! We took some amazing pictures of the different beaches and sights from the water perspective. We also got to see migrating hump back whales and snorkel at the Green Island reef, a decent price, $100, for a full days trip, lunch and all the rum or beer you can drink.
