Antigua Snorkeling Excursion Reviews

The reefs off the shore of Antigua contain many nooks and crannies for you to explore. Look for interesting marine life like the parrotfish, angelfish, damsel fish, and grunt.
For novices, great beach and good facilities.

We opted for the stingray swim and snorkel excursion. This excursion was well outside my comfort zone but it was absolutely incredible. The stingrays were incredibly gentle and amazing to watch. The guides were knowledgeable And really seemed very willing to educate people about the stingrays. We were able to hold the stingrays and feed them. I am incredibly thankful That my friend pushed me to go on this excursion. Worth every penny. Read Less

We boated out to an island and climbed to its summit for great views, then snorkeled in a beautiful spot just off that island, and finally moved by boat back into another spot for kayaking. Back at shore, we enjoyed rum punch and the shady grounds. The bus narrator was great on the drive there and back. We loved all parts of the excursion. Read Less

We took the Xtreme Circumnav tour of Antigua. This was a speed boat ride around the entire island in a day with 2 snorkelling stops at Stingray City and The Pillars of Hercules and 2 remote beach stops. The guides were great! The fast boat ride on the, at times, huge waves was exhilarating! We stopped to see Nelson's Dockyard with 100 + yachts and sail boats. Stingray City was fun. We swam with lots of friendly stingrays and got a pic holding one too! The snorkelling at the Pillars of Hercules was guided with options for beginners and those who were more advanced. The rock formations above and below the water's surface were interesting and there were many fish here to see. We had a delicious lunch at one remote beach on Green Island and swam and explored the long, soft, sandy white beach at Rendevouz Beach. Read Less

We were met at the dock, loaded up on a mono hull with about 20 people and set off to snorkel over a reef while our lobster lunch was being grilled up on Bird Island. We hiked up to see the view (beautiful) and came back to a FANTASTIC lunch sitting at picnic tables with our feet in the ocean. The rum punch was beyond tasty. We loaded back up and went to snorkel in shallow water where we saw a ton of starfish, sea cucumbers and possible THE biggest hermit crab I've ever come across. Went shelling on the beach, then back to the port. Would do it again in a NY minute. Read Less

This was more arduous than I’d expected. Captain of our boat was a daredevil - I’ve never gone that fast on the water. Sea conditions were rough and some of the guests had to be rescued snorkeling. Not sure the outfit Celebrity uses has the best judgment. Kayaking was similarly rough and a couple novices were at risk of being swept out to sea. Read Less

Booked an Eco Tour. Went to several locations around the island for a variety of activities (climbing through a cave, hiking up an island, snorkeling). Activities were nice, but service was missing. The guides seemed to be phoning it in on the day we were there. We also experienced some stinginess with food and drinks. For the price we paid, it didn't live up to expectations. Read Less

Straight off the ship onto a catamaran and back out to see to snorkel on a reef.
Sail Date: December 2018
Straight off the ship onto a catamaran and back out to see to snorkel on a reef. Great staff again, lots of free rum punch. Only slight complaint was only about 15-20 mins snorkelling - would have liked a bit longer.

We took Swimiing with stingrays. Really enjoyable. First they drove us to the other end of the island, Then a boat took us far from the shore to a place with shallow and transparent water. We pet the stingrays and had photos of them. We also did snorkelling and there was so much to see. On the shore they provided rum. There were very friendly parrots. We bought the photo of us with a stingray but unfortunately they gave us a wrong photo which we found out when we came bank home and opened the CD. We wrote to them and we hope they will send us the right photo. Read Less
