My husband and I are recently back from a trip to Antigua. Our travel agent recommended Paddles for a great excursion on the island. I am anxious about watersports and thought I'd just do the kayaking and hiking portion and skip the snorkeling. Well, silly me. Our guides were amazing. They were knowledgable, full of history lessons and recounted wonderful local stories. But the best part for me, after the fascinating kayaking part, the hike up the cliff to view the spectacular views and the viewing of the nesting birds, was actually snorkeling. I have been terrified for years and our brilliant guides, James and Joseph were so patient, kind and encouraging. I actually snorkeled, much to my husband's surprise. I guess you can teach an old dog a new trick!
