Antigua Reef Riders Self-Drive Boat and Snorkeling Tour

265 reviews
Drive your own inflatable Reef Rider boat to explore the West Coast of Antigua. This 10-foot (3-meter) boat is compact enough to access the smallest and shallowest lagoons, teeming with marine life. Slip on the provided mask, fins, and snorkel to dive in and see the wrasse, stingrays, lobster, and parrotfish that inhabit the reef. A guide accompanies your group the whole time to ensure your safety and comfort.

The price was almost doubled to $15 for entrance fee which we didn't know until we arrived, but it was well worth the price for admission to this historical gem! As you enter, there are little shop stands for shirts, caps, jewelry, etc. I bought a bracelet made out of seeds and an older woman was sewing one together, so I knew it was legit. LOVE IT my little piece of Antigua keepsake. Beyond that there were old buildings with plaques about their history and a museum with great historical information & artifacts about the island. Thoroughly enjoyable. We then walked around to see the gorgeous yachts docked there and had the most lovely lunch at the Pillars. A definite MUST when visiting Antigua!

Been to Antigua twice. Stayed round the corner at Falmouth Harbour, Antigua Yacht club (recommended). Very relaxing place. See some of the lovely boats in the harbour. History was made here. See Nelsons home, now hotel. Nice hotels & restaurant. A MUST to go around the museum

Despite Covid a really good visit with the small English owned cafe doing socially distanced coffee and treats. The venue give a wonderful feel of the past and a bygone era. Today's ships begger belief in both size and cost. Yachts-I think not!
