Triple Destination Sunday Cruise

Duration: Half Day

Triple destination sunday cruise

A holiday in Antigua would not be complete without taking a boat cruise across the sparkling Caribbean waters in search of deserted islands and fun in the sun. Enjoy a day of pure relaxation in paradise as we make our way to the beautiful Green Island for snorkeling and swimming, followed by sightseeing at English Harbour and Nelson's Dockyard. The tour is rounded off by music and entertainment as the sun goes down – the perfect way to end the day.

Green Island is a beautiful, uninhabited coral cay located just off the east coast of Antigua. It is one of Antigua’s largest and most diverse offshore islands, boasting glorious white sandy beaches and crystal clear turquoise waters backed by rugged cliffs and tropical rainforests further inland. The diverse habitats host a variety of birds and other wildlife, whilst the sea offers excellent opportunities for snorkelling.

Immerse yourself in the Caribbean’s majestic undersea world, which is ablaze with colour. Explore vibrant coral reefs and come face to face with hundreds of brightly-coloured exotic fish, sea turtles, eels, rays, anemones and many other exciting marine creatures. After your underwater adventure, enjoy a delicious Caribbean lunch and open bar on the beach. Green Island is the epitome of an idyllic Robinson Crusoe island and the perfect place to escape to for peace and tranquillity in paradise.

After lunch we sail to the picturesque English Harbour and Nelson's Dockyard, the only working Georgian dockyard in the world. This historic district was developed as a base for the British Navy in the 18th century, but it was abandoned at the end of the 19th century and only recently restored to its former glory. The area has been designated a National Park, preserving its harbour and surrounding hills and beaches. This unique blend of spectacular scenery and rich colonial heritage is a must-see for any traveller to Antigua.

Admire your surroundings as you enjoy a tour of the famous dockyard, which was named in honour of the English Admiral Horatio Nelson. Nelson was based at English Harbour from 1784-1787, serving as captain and Commander-in-Chief of the Leeward Islands. Many of the restored colonial buildings in the harbour now house shops, cafés, restaurants and a museum for tourists.

The last stop of the tour is Shirley Heights, an old military complex and one of the highest points on the island. Marvel at the magnificent views of English Harbour before being entertained with music and singing from a local steel band, and soak up the relaxed Caribbean atmosphere as you witness a spectacular Antiguan sunset. This is a fantastic experience not to be missed. Shortly after the sun goes down you will be transferred back to your hotel by taxi.
