Antigua Eco Kayak Trip

Duration: Half Day

Antigua eco kayak trip

If you are looking for an eco adventure in paradise during your holiday in Antigua, there are plenty of exciting options available. "Paddles" Kayak Club offers a range of activities, including kayaking, snorkeling, motor boating and hiking along some of the most beautiful and unspoiled coastal areas in the Caribbean. Spectacular scenery and wildlife await you on this unforgettable adventure off the beaten track.

Starting from the clubhouse in the quaint village of Seatons on Antigua’s stunning East Coast, your half day tour will begin with a motorboat ride across the crystal clear waters of Mercer's Creek before reaching a tranquil emerald lagoon to board your kayak. After a short safety briefing and a demonstration of paddling techniques, your experienced guides will reveal some of Antigua’s most beautiful natural treasures as you set off to North Sound Marine Park. Discover tiny uninhabited islands, tranquil fishing coves and beautiful bays as you explore areas accessible only by boat. Paddling through the peaceful mangrove channels will enable you to see and learn about the incredible variety of endemic wildlife that reside in and around these delicate ecosystems.

Kayaking is an ideal way to get close to nature as it is such a tranquil water sport, and you will be rewarded with numerous sightings of birds, animals and sea creatures without disturbing them. If you choose to go snorkeling, you will see a myriad of marine species such as sea cucumbers, crabs, starfish, turtles, upside down jellyfish, octopus and sea urchins, as well as hundreds of tropical fish. The lush mangroves are also important habitats for hundreds of endemic and migratory birds, which come here to feed, roost and nest in peaceful surroundings. Brown pelicans, laughing gulls, terns, herons, kingfishers, turtle doves, ospreys and mangrove cuckoos can often be spotted flying and diving for fish here.

If you are eager to discover even more of the local wildlife, nature walks are available at the uninhabited Great Bird Island. Here you will see many more bird species such as frigate birds, noddies, red-billed tropic birds, hummingbirds and West Indian whistling ducks, whilst gaining some wonderful views of Antigua’s coastline. Rich in marine life, Bird Island is also one of the best places to snorkel in Antigua as it boasts spectacular coral reefs and an abundance of marine life. Nature lovers will be in their element.

If you are looking for something a bit more exhilarating, high speed boat rides are also available, taking you past the North Sound islands James Bond-style. Whatever activity you choose to do, this educational and fun-filled day will prove popular with the whole family.
