Antigua Adventure Eco Tour
The emphasis of this trip is on the ecology and history of the island. The warm, clear waters, protected by over 20 tiny islands, countless reefs, flats and mangrove nurseries, are always calm and there are perfect opportunities for spotting some of the local residents, including turtles, frigate birds, herons, pelicans, spotted eagle rays, sting rays, barracuda, osprey, turns, noddies, laughing gulls, and beautiful tropical birds. Lunch and snorkeling lessons are also included.
Antigua Rainforest Canopy Tour
A unique eco-tour through Antigua’s lush rain forest where you embark on an unforgettable journey through the verdant forest, high above the trees. There are a series of zip lines, some in excess of 200 and 300 feet long, criss-crossing the gorge, varying from 200 – 350 feet high. The tour also comprises short trails and suspension bridges, which are completed with a unique, absolutely safe, ‘Leap of Faith’, a controlled 36-foot vertical descent!
Catamaran Circumnavigation Cruise
This cruise takes you all the way around the island where you will see the rich history of the island and the beauty unfolds before your eyes. Take one stop at Green island for swimming, snorkelling, lunch and open bar.
The culture of Antigua cannot be grasped without considering the island’s fierce devotion to cricket. The sport is played everywhere and at any time, though official local competitions tend to be held on Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. The cricket season lasts from January to July and is interspersed during most seasons with both regional and international ODIs, T20s and Test matches.
