The Extreme Circumnav Tour
The Extreme Circumnav Tour is perfect for visitors who are looking to see as much of the island in a short amount of time. The tour is perfect for visitors staying on the island looking for an adventure and for those visitors who are coming in on cruise ships. Adventures Xtreme Antigua offer an Eli designed adventure tour using their Miami vice 45ft offshore speed boats to explore the amazing islands of the north sound with its myriad coral reefs, the exclusive Stingray City Marine Park, Green Island, Nelson’s Dockyard, the Pillars of Hercules, and the world-famous Rendezvous Bay!
Stingray City Marine Park
Here get ready for an adventure of a lifetime! As the boat begins to dock, be prepared to start putting on your snorkel gear as you are minutes away from jumping in to swim with the rays! The staff is fantastic and helpful and they truly make sure you are having a great time. After everyone jumps in the water, the staff will begin to feed the stingrays.
At this point, it may start to seem overwhelming and scary because the stingrays will all begin to swim towards you. It was truly a remarkable experience! We took pictures, gave them kisses, and received our very first back massage from a stingray! This was one of the most exciting and thrilling stops in the tour.
Next get ready to head out to the Robinson Crusoe style, buffet lunch at Green Island while sticking your toes in the water. We had bbq chicken, macaroni salad, beans, bread, and delicious pastries! The views were incredible!
Nelson’s Dockyard and The Pillars of Hercules
After lunch, the tour heads to Nelson’s Dockyard where we began a guided snorkel trip to the awesome Pillars of Hercules! This was a sight within itself! There were volcanic boulders below the surface, and a variety of beautiful marine life.
Swim the extremely secluded beach at the beautiful Rendezvous Bay! This was one of our favorite stops. Here the guides will begin to serve the famous traditional rum punch! It was GOOOOOD!
Our Guides even made sure to show us the famous Hell’s Gate on the way back! Hell’s Gate is only reachable by boat and is great for snorkeling or climbing up to go into the cave!
Adventure Antigua gave us a life-changing experience that we will remember forever! We highly recommend this tour when coming to Antigua as you will get the most for your money in a short amount of time! We were truly in awe with how much of the island we were able to see in one day!
