Antigua Tours you Really Shouldn’t Miss

Prickly Pear Island Excursion

Receiving rave reviews from tour goers, the Prickly Pear Island Excursion offered by Miguel’s Holiday Adventure is a perfect way to spend a relaxing day in Antigua.  The tour starts with a quick five-minute boat ride heading out of Hodges Bay to uninhabited Prickly Pear Island, known for its great snorkeling.  The tour includes a West Indian/seafood lunch buffet (including lobster, chicken, and salads), an open bar, snorkeling instruction and equipment, plus lounge chairs and umbrellas.  The Prickly Pear Island Excursion operates from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. three days per week.

Caribbean Helicopter Tour

Operating out of Jolly Harbour, Caribbean Helicopters has been offering aerial sightseeing tours of Antigua for the past 15 years.  Voted the ‘best attraction experience’ by Destinations magazine, Caribbean Helicopters thrills guests with half and full island tours plus excursions to view the volcano on Montserrat.  Custom helicopter tours can also be arranged and include options like a beach lunch at Lighthouse Bay on Barbuda, playing golf on St. Nevis, lunch and shopping on St. Bart’s, or actually landing at the Montserrat Volcano Observatory.

Antigua Rain Forest Company

There’s no better way to explore the lush tropical rain forest of Antigua than by zipping along the tree top canopy.  Visitors to the Antigua Rain Forest Company have the choice of taking a one-hour Zip Line tour, a 45-minute Short Zip Line Course tour, a half-hour Ropes Challenge Course, or the most popular 2 ½ hour Full Canopy Tour which provides an assortment of trails, zip lines, and exhilarating suspension bridges.  When you’re done, you can sit and sip a cold drink at the Antigua Rain Forest Company cafe and bar.
