“Our favorite day in Antigua!”
Reviewed June 2, 2010

We did the Eco Tour in December 2009 - a full day out including lunch, fruit juices and rum punch on the boat. We were not part of a cruise, but we picked people up at the cruise dock so it works as a shore excursion as well. The guides were fantastic, knowledgable and friendly. We learned a lot about the island's history and topography, and had a ton a fun. You stop near Jumby Bay, for a walk up tiny Bird Island, climbing across Hell's Gate natural rock formation and snorkeling (all gear provided). The boat was spacious and comfortable (we saw some of the cruise excursion boats packed to the gills and felt very lucky). Its really SUCH a beautiful day in every way and I can't speak highly enough of our tour guides. This was the most fun we had during our week-long trip to Antigua. Pick any of their tours, but you MUST go.

“What A Day!”
Reviewed April 28, 2010

We were guided by Zimo and Chris (and another woman whom I'm sorry I forgot her name) and really had the time of our life.

Chris provided interesting and fun history and insights on Antigua. We really enjoyed every minute of our time!

Jumby Bay was incredible, Hell's Gate was awesome and the snorkeling amazing! The BBQ Chicken was so delicious and the Rum Punch excellent!!!!!

I highly recommend these guys!!!!

“Exhilarating!”
Reviewed April 8, 2010

Xtreme Cicumnav was a fun & thrill packed day. Great guides. Everyone seemed to have a wonderful day!

Only problem is a personal one in that your arrangement with "stingray city" results in frustration since they will not reply to any of our 3 e-mails about acquiring our photo. Business must be really good for them! We traveled with you on Mar.23.

You guys did a superb job and, yes, we would recommend you to anyone.
Thank you!

“Extreme Circumnav Tour was great!”
Reviewed April 7, 2010

My husband and I did the extreme circumnav tour in August 08 and it was fantastic. The boat is speed boat, and it gets bumpy, I wouldn't recommend it to someone frail or with back problems. I enjoyed Stingray City and found it really interesting, though there were more jellyfish than stingrays, the Caribbean jellyfish are very mild - stings are like a very mild bee sting for a few minutes. When we went snorkeling there were also swarms of jellyfish and most people didn't snorkel very much, but dolphins swam right up to our boat. Nelson's dockyard was beautiful, the buffet lunch of barbecue chicken, sides, and rum punch was delicious, and the young men who did the cruise were professional and native Antiguans with a wealth of knowledge. It's definitely not a booze cruise, and you get to circle the whole island in a day. I highly recommend it, it was by far the highlight of our trip. Be sure to wear a swimsuit, pack water and sunscreen! We booked directly through our hotel, Galley Bay.
