Well what can I say apart from this tour was bloody brilliant. We went on this tour on the 20th Feb with Eilah, Natalie and Bob - fantastic crew with the greatest knowledge of the island of Antiqua. We were the four seating at the back :-) sit at the back if you want to laugh lots and get wet!
The whole tour to where we stopped the lunch we had the places we visited were just simply amazing. We wanted to thank you guys very much for such a great day and we strongly recommend this tour to anyone. From azure blue waters to the snorkelling with the stingrays. Once again you three the big thank you xxxx

The positive reviews on tripadvisor are what helped me decide to book an excursion with Adventure Antigua. There were 4 of us in our group and 10 others onboard. We literally got off the cruise ship and got on board for the Eco Tour. Our crew was friendly, and very intelligent in regards to the geographical area. You can tell they are experienced, safe, and take pride in what they are doing. We stopped several times for them to tell us about specific locations we would ask them about. Hells Gate was awesome!! Well worth the little swim in and the small climb on the rock. What an absolutely beautiful view from up top!! The day we went the waters were a little difficult for novice snorkelers but it was still a great time. Lunch was great and we finished the trip with rum punch for everyone who wanted to par-take. If you wonder or question, it is a definite must do! You will love it! (and you will definitely be back to the cruise ship on time)

This was a great trip! Our guides, Shawn, Natalie and Travis were very knowledgable and experienced. The lunch provided was great and I was not expecting anything as nice set up on the beach. Snorkeling locations were awesome and the boat ride was exciting. So if you want to see the island, get some history, see some wildlife this is a great trip. This trip was well worth the money we paid. One of the best excursions we have ever taken.

We went on the Eco Tour Dec. 20, 2012. There were only about 15 people on our tour which was much better than the crowded cruise ship excursions. Nell and the other two guides were great! They told us lots of information about the island and the scenery was beautiful. You can tell they really love their island. We swam over to and then climbed up Hell's Gate. What an adventure! Next we stopped on a small island where we could explore, swim or just enjoy the beach and then served a delicious lunch. After leaving the island, we stopped for snorkeling. We have been on several cruises. This was the best tour we have ever been on and much more than we expected! Thanks Nell for a wonderful day!!!

Met the Adventure Antigua boat right outside the cruise pier for our Eco Tour at 9:50. Weather was perfect, crew was great and our fellow passengers were awesome... Water was beautiful, beaches were perfect and the climb to the top of Hell's Gate was tough but a once in a lifetime experience.

It was myself, husband and our 7 year old son. Our son did great, loved the boat ride and even climbed Hell's Gate with us. We had a great lunch at Bird Island then climbed to the top of Bird Island for a great view then off to Snorkel. On the way back to the ship we stopped at a little beach full of shells and lots of Starfish in about a foot of water. Our son LOVED the Starfish.

I would highly recommend Adventure Antigua for a great experience. They went our of their way to make the day special for our son since he was the only child on the excursion that day. He has already said climbing Hell's Gate was his favorite part of our vacation... What more can I say!!!

We were on a cruise and they had us back to the pier with plenty of time to spare...
