How about a little sightseeing, and just for fun... some kayaking, snorkeling, and lunch? Sound good? Then come enjoy a fun-filled St. John's Antigua Kayak, Snorkel, and Beach Shore Excursion that even includes a complimentary drink and some beach time!

This great Antigua kayak and snorkel combo shore excursion begins just next to your St. John's Antigua cruise ship pier where your friendly excursion driver/guide will welcome you and then escort you to your comfortable, air-conditioned transportation.

Then enjoy a scenic, narrated 25-minute ride to the beautiful Cades Bay where the kayaking excursion base camp is located on the beach. Upon arrival, your guide will provide a quick kayak lesson, tips on paddling, and some safety instructions. The kayaks are shared double riders. You will then follow your kayak excursion guide and enjoy a 20-minute kayak ride through the lush mangroves. These mangroves are home to many fish, crabs, shrimp, and mollusks. The shallow warm water makes a great nursery for many species of marine life. Keep an eye out for tropical birds as well. If you'd prefer not to kayak, you can enjoy a guided walkabout on the wooden boardwalk... both options enjoy the same mangrove sights and end at the same location on Cades Beach.

From the beach, you will next take a 5-minute boat ride to the coral reef for some snorkeling. If any guests do not want to do the snorkel portion, they may stay on the beach. There you will enjoy a 45-minute guided snorkel over a gorgeous reef just teeming with life. All equipment will be provided and the guide will be happy to help those who are new to the sport. Then jump in and see colorful tropical fish dart in and out of the coral. Parrotfish, sergeantfish, trunkfish, and more may be spotted. Cades Reef is several miles long and is broken into two sections. There is a shallow section that is ideal for beginner snorkelers and an outer area that is home to the larger fish. Pick your spot and remember, your guide will be with you the entire time to point out areas of interest. When the snorkeling is completed, you will be assisted back into the boat using a metal ladder off the side.

Then it's back to the beach to enjoy a tasty Caribbean lunch that will include barbecue chicken, rice, and a green salad. You'll also be given a complimentary rum or fruit punch to get you into the tropical mood. Then relax, take a stroll, and catch some rays. Then it is time to head back and you'll be returned to your St. John's Antigua cruise ship pier.

A fun and entertaining option for families. The duration of the excursion was perfect for us, I have children I didn't want them to get bored so 4 hours of fun activities were good. They ended up tired but very happy. The lunch was amazing. I will be using shore excursioneer for my next cruise.

From the bus ride to the snorkel it was a great adventure. Everyone was very knowledgeable and we saw brilliant fish on the snorkel portion. Kayaking through the mangroves was easy and not strenuous. Guides were fun and knowledgeable of the fish!

We chose this excursion since it would allow us to enjoy different water sports. It started with the kayaking which was a bit hard at first but then we got the pace. We had a guide leading the group and another guide in the back making sure no one was left behind. The water was clear and we saw tons of fish folllowing our convoy! It was a beautiful view paddling through the mangroves, listening to the birds, so relaxing. Then it was off to the snorkeling portion. We all boarded the boat, were given safety instructions, and once again, had guides all the time making sure everyone was ok. Since most of the group had snorkel experience, our guide Ed took us further while the not so experienced stayed with the other guide. The current was smooth and we saw tons of coral and colorful fish. After the snorkeling was offer, we dried up and then it was off to the beach for lunch! We were all hungry and a bit tired but ready to continue! The complimentary luch was delicious as well as the rum, but you can order other stuff from the menu. We ordered more drinks and had about 45 minutes to relax and enjoy the view before we were taking back to our terminal with plenty time to spare and do a bit of shopping.

I loved this combo. My kids were excited throughout the whole tour. Our guide was beyond attentive and friendly, he shared the kayak with my youngest that was a beginner. The water is very clear and we saw lots of colorful fish. It was a perfect day for everyone in my family.

My boyfriend and I had a great time on this tour, the part that we enjoy the most was the snorkeling but in general everything was wonderful! Food was delicious, chicken was very tasty! Thank you Shore Excursioneer for this amazing recommendation, we will book our excursions for next year with you as well
