Go totally around the island on a fast speedboat and snorkel at the famous Stingray City - hold and feed the stingrays on this unique cruise shore excursion from St. John's!

You will meet your English-speaking Antigua Powerboat Shore Excursion guide at your St. John's cruise terminal and jump aboard your special speedboat. This is not an ordinary boat, this is a fast 45-foot offshore speedboat using three, eco-friendly, 225hp four-stroke Yamaha engines and a top cruise speed is an exhilarating 40 MPH, will head first to Antigua's famous Stingray City. There is nothing to fear as these docile marine creatures are used to human interaction and are more like puppies eager to greet the guests and look for a treat! Your stingray city snorkel excursion guide will go over the rules about interacting with the stingrays and will be in the shallow water with you at all times. They will assist you to hold and feed the stingrays in the crystal-clear ocean water. You can also enjoy an optional snorkel on the nearby natural reef abundant with various marine life. Snorkel equipment is included and your St. John's Antigua Around the Island Speedboat and Stingray City Excursion guides will show you how to use all of the snorkeling gear.

Guests will then get back on board the speedboat and head next to the next stop on this Antigua Cruise Shore Excursion. Green Island is a small private island, where you can stroll to the beach for a swim whilst lunch is set up! Enjoy your mouthwatering delectable lunch that is included. Relax on the idyllic beach, taking in splendid views of the surrounding islands and ocean. Lunch consists of BBQ chicken, seasoned pasta, green salad as well as fried plantain and banana bread for dessert. Dietary restrictions can be met in most cases - please advise at the time of booking this Antigua Speedboat and Stingray Snorkel Excursion. Complimentary drinks include coke, diet coke, passion fruit and tamarind juices, bottled water, and local homemade rum punch.

From Green Island, you will then continue to Nelson's Dockyard. This cultural heritage site is named after Admiral Horacio Nelson and is home to some of the island's big sailing and yachting events. Guests will hop off here and the shore excursion guide will lead the group on a short walking exploration of Nelson's Dockyard before getting back on the speedboat.

Your speedboat shore excursion captain will tell you some interesting information and anecdotes before you cruise on to the Pillars of Hercules. Jump in and follow your powerboat excursion guide for a fantastic snorkel session at these amazing limestone boulders that enter the ocean from the base of Shirley Heights Hill.

Be sure to bring your underwater camera as you snorkel among stingrays, trumpet fish, and blue tangs just to name a few of the local St. John's Antigua marine life.

Finally, you will cruise to a secluded beach on the south side of the island. Relax, swim or stroll along the shore - the choice is yours. You may also enjoy additional snorkeling and head out on your own, to see what marine life inhabits the nearby waters.

Please note due to guests' safety, rum punch is served only after snorkeling activities are completed.

As your speedboat excursion concludes, it is time to return to your Antigua cruise ship pier terminal after a fascinating speedboat adventure, stingray city, snorkel, and beach excursion!

A total blast!
     5/5  (Visited on February 2020)
This excursion totally exceeded all expectations! Once we boarded our speedboat, we rode around picking up other vacationers at their hotels or at other pickup spots. We went around the entire Island which was beyond gorgeous. We were fortunate to have beautiful weather. We stopped at several pristine beaches, even had lunch served to us on the beach. Finding beautiful seashells was a treat. Toby was our Captain, Charles was one of 2 deckhands, all were very accommodating and knowledgeable. Seas weren’t calm by no means but Toby obviously is an excellent Captain, he had everything under control. My friend had fun playing with a Sea cucumber, it showed her its approval of her caresses! We all got to hold and play with sting rays and loved our snorkeling spot.

The best excursion!
     5/5  (Visited on April 2018)
We all agreed that this was our favorite excursion during our cruise. WORTH EVERY PENNY. We got to do so much in one day and not your everyday experiences. Everything was perfect, from our guides, snorkel crew, equipment, food, entertainment. This is the perfect excursion to take if you want a true Antigua Experience. It includes adventure, sightseeing, snorkel, STINGRAYS! Plus culture and a little bit of education too. The speedboat was the perfect way to get to places. Everyone at (Tour Operator), thank you for showing us a great time during our visit.

We found the perfect excursion for our visit to St. John's! We decided on the speedboat that takes you to stingray city, a beach stop at green island ANDDDDD you ride fullspeed through the coastline to do some more sightseeing. Our day could not been better and we had a professional crew that knew exactly how to keep us entertained : )

Really a 6 star tour!
     5/5  (Visited on November 2015)
My 7 year old son is still talking about this tour in St. John's. He has decided when he grows up, he is going to drive this boat and "make visitors happy all day". I thought the stingrays were going to be scary but once you get over the fact that they are stingrays, they really seem like lovable pets begging for attention. We all loved spending the day out on the water and seeing Antigua this way.

A must do in Antigua
     5/5  (Visited on November 2015)
We did this tour November 10, 2015. WOW. The meeting place is directly in front of the cruise ship we sailed in on. The excursion boat picked us up on time and the guides were fantastic (David and Jason). This tour is not for the physically weak. This fast boat is meant to do that. Go fast. You start off going to swim with the stingrays and boy are they friendly. Your guides will bring them to you, you actually hold them and they take the pictures. Worth every second snorkeling with the various fishes. Then you proceed to cruise around the entire island stopping several times for more swimming if you want to leave the boat or just relax on board. An excellent lunch is provided. The boat then brings you back to your starting point with extra time to do some last minute shopping if you wish. Note: A very bumpy ride once you transition from the Caribbean Sea to the Atlantic Ocean. Like a roller coaster adventure while sitting up front. Worth every penny.
