ShoreTrips says...

Get away from the crowds and go where the large boats can't go. Enjoy the peacefulness of paddling your kayak among the mangroves of Antigua's North Sound Marine Park.

Kayakers of all abilities are welcome to experience the beauty, nature, and fun of this half-day trip. We'll depart from the cruise ship pier by automobile and drive through the countryside and small villages to an Antiguan-style clubhouse. You'll take a short motorboat ride from the club house to a remote lagoon, where kayaks await you. Guides will demonstrate paddling techniques before leading a 45-minute route through mangroves and tiny islands, home to exotic sea life.

Returning to the lagoon, you'll reboard the motorboat for an exhilarating 20-minute coastal ride through the 12 uninhabited islands of the North Sound to Great Bird Island. Follow your guide on an easy hike to the cliff top and look for unusual small wildlife and photograph the fabulous panorama before descending to the gorgeous beach to swim in the crystal shallows.

Keen snorkelers can take the quick boat ride to explore offshore reefs. Guides will provide gear and instruction.

Returning to the clubhouse, you'll enjoy chilled aromatherapy face towels, fresh baked snack, fruit punch, rum punch, and genuine Caribbean hospitality.

This trip fills up quickly. Please book now to avoid disappointment!
