Antigua Paddles Eco Kayak Tour

Duration: Half Day

Antigua Paddles Eco Kayak Tour

Discovering the natural treasures of the Caribbean – both above and below the water – is a must during your holiday in Antigua and this tour enables you to do just that. Spend a relaxing day kayaking, swimming, snorkeling and exploring on an unforgettable eco adventure in paradise.

Your tour will start from the clubhouse at Seatons Village as you are taken by motorboat out onto the crystal clear Caribbean waters, travelling through Mercer's Creek before reaching a tranquil emerald lagoon where your kayak is moored. After a short safety briefing and a demonstration of paddling techniques, the knowledgeable and experienced "Paddles" Kayak Club guides will reveal some of Antigua’s highlights as you set off on your fun-filled ocean adventure.

Discover tiny uninhabited islands, tranquil fishing coves and picturesque bays as you explore areas that are only accessible by boat. As you paddle through the peaceful mangrove channels, your guide will teach you all about the great diversity of wildlife species living in these delicate ecosystems. Kayaking is an excellent way to get up close to nature because it’s such a tranquil water sport.

You will get to see, touch and learn about a variety of marine species, including upside down jellyfish, sea cucumbers, starfish, turtles and sea urchins. A myriad of fish and other sea creatures can also be spotted under the surface as you glide across the water. The mangroves are also important habitats for hundreds of birds, who use them for feeding, roosting and nesting. Pelicans, laughing gulls, terns, herons, kingfishers, turtle doves, ospreys and mangrove cuckoos can often be spotted flying and diving for fish here, so keep your eyes peeled.

After kayaking and refreshments, you will be whisked across the ocean by motor boat once again to the North Sound National Park where you can explore the uninhabited Great Bird Island. This beautiful island is home to hundreds of native and migratory bird species, as well as a wide variety of exotic flowers, trees and plants.

Rich in marine life, Bird Island is also one of the best places to snorkel in Antigua. You will have free time to explore the clear tropical waters and vibrant reefs, where you will find a huge variety of brightly-coloured tropical fish, sea turtles, rays, octopus and hundreds of other marine creatures swimming amongst the corals, sponges and sea fans.

Back on dry land you can enjoy spectacular views of the National Park and mainland Antigua as we embark on a nature walk to the top of Bird Island. Get your camera ready for some excellent photo opportunities. This is also a great place for bird watching, where you are likely to spot frigate birds, brown pelicans, noddies, laughing gulls, red-billed tropic birds, West Indian whistling ducks and many more endemic and migratory species. Nature lovers will be in their element.
