We had looked at the Eco Tour and the Extreme Tour several times before our trip to Antigua. Initially we tried to book the Extreme circumnav tour, but it was full. Good thing, though, because we were so very happy with the Eco Tour.
We hiked all along Hell's Gate (cannot express how awe inspiring this was - one side the calm Caribbean, the other side the tumultuous Atlantic), climbed to the top of Bird Island, and snorkeled near Bird Island. While snorkeling we actually saw a magnificent spotted Eagle Ray, the biggest lobster any of us tourists had every set eyes on, and tons of fish and beautiful coral. There were a few jelly fish (this was the case all around the island), but they really didn't sting that badly as I held one once back on the boat.
The crew were friendly, intelligent, and helpful. They definitely made this trip worth it and the lunch we were served was delicious. We would definitely recommend this as a highlight to your trip!

We came back to Antigua for the second time in April of 2011. On our first trip to Antigua in 2010, we saw the Antigua Extreme boat in Jolly Harbor and thought it looked like a lot of fun but we had already booked with another boat trip. So we made sure to book early on the Extreme for our 2011 trip. The boat picked us up in front of our resort and we were greeted by three vey friendly and knowledgable crew members. They took us around the island and told us about the history of Antigua and about the intereting places we were passing. We went to Stingray City which was very fun. We would highly recommend it to anyone. We had a lovely lunch on a quiet beach. We got to see some of the harbors and the large yachts that were there for the upcoming Regatta. We snorkeled in a quiet bay and saw llts of interesting sea life. The crew got in with us and led groups of novices and more advanced snorkelers which was very nice. We stopped for some rum punch on a beach that had the softest sand I've stepped in. After completing our trip around the entire island we were delivered safe and sound back to our resort. It was a wonderful day. We would highly recommend it and will definetly book with them again on our next trip to Antigua.

My mom, aunt, cousin, and I went on the extreme circumnavigation trip around the island, let me tell you, it was worth every penny! What a great crew! Chris, Trevor, and Roscoe were our guides and I couldn't have asked for better company (Thanks guys!). They were welcoming, funny, and knowledgeable about Antiguan biology. During the trip you make a few stops: Stingray city, green island, Nelson's Dockyard/ Pilars of Hercules and rendezvous bay. Next time I visit I'll be sure to book another excursion with this company, we had the time of our lives!
