Day 1 – Kayaking at “Paddles” Kayaking
A stiff sea breeze helps to cure the effects of a few stiff drinks and so a spot of Kayaking was going to be just the tonic after our antics at Shirley Heights. So we made our way to “Paddles” Kayaking to help guide us around the precious mangrove inlets that pepper the south/east coast of Antigua. See more details of Kayaking in Antigua.

Day 2 – Sunday night at Shirley Heights
Shirley Heights is an historic British military observation point perched high on a mountain next to the coast. It offers fantastic views of Antigua, in particular English harbour and Nelson’s dockyard. If you are after more than just views then we suggest you visit on a Sunday night where the BBQ glows, the rum punch flows and you can dance the night away under the stars to the rhythm of a steel band and live reggae music. See more details on Shirley Heights - Antigua
Day 3 – “Ziplining” in the Antiguan Rainforest
Is it a bird, is it a plane …. no it’s an overweight thirty something getting thrown from tree to tree by a group of Antiguans with a passion for scaring tourists! See more details of Ziplining in Antigua
Day 4 – Scuba Diving
While we were having great fun seeing Antigua from land we knew it was only half the story and that we would have to go underwater to see the rest of the beauty that Antigua has to offer. See more details on scuba diving in Antigua.
Day 5 – Visit to Sting Ray City
A visit to the gentle giants of the sea was always going to be fun. We didn’t realise how much though until we got there. See more on Sting Ray City in Antigua
Day 6 – Segway Tour
For the uninitiated “Segways” are two wheeled vehicles which transport you around, keeping you balanced no matter how unbalanced you are as a person! See our review of the Segway tour of Antigua
Day 7 – Trip to Barbuda on the Barbuda Express
Probably the most “chilled” island on the planet. 1500 inhabitants, no crime and amazing deserted beaches. We visited to see this incredible island. Click to see our adventure in Barbuda
Day 8 – Helicopter trip around volcanic Montserrat
A helicopter trip is dramatic enough. Add a flight around an active volcano which is spewing steam and ash and you have something pretty special. For more details see our Antigua Helicopter trip
Day 9 – Catamaran Sailing at Blue Waters
Having sailed about 10 years before I was a little rusty to say the least. Read how the first trip nearly ended in disaster at Catamaran Sailing in Antigua
Day 10 – English Harbour visit
In the south of Antigua is a piece of historic England that has now been invaded not by the French or the Spanish but by the super-rich. We had a look to see how the old and the new now sit side by side at English Harbour Antigua
Day 11 – Antigua Clay's
For a fun-filled day out in Antigua then a trip to Antigua Clay’s should definitely be on the agenda. Put your shooting skills to the test and experience the exciting art of clay shooting. Read more details about Antigua Clay’s.
