  • Paradise Reef Snorkel and Beach

    Discover the colourful underwater world of Paradise Reef and the warm golden sands of an Antiguan beach on a leisurely catamaran cruise.

    Paradise Reef Snorkel and Beach

    Board your catamaran and admire the beautiful Antiguan scenery, as you sail along the coastline to Paradise Reef, one of the island’s best snorkeling locations.

    After a safety briefing and instruction, you’ll have time to explore the underwater world with its garden of coral and abundant marine life. Look out for a variety of sea life, however if you don’t wish to snorkel, you can sunbathe on board or relax with a drink from the open bar.

    Your next stop will be the warm sands of a lovely Antiguan beach. Here you’ll have the opportunity to soak up the sun as you laze on the sandy shore or, if you are feeling more active, enjoy a swim in the crystal clear Caribbean sea.

    Back on board the catamaran, the open bar will be serving soft drinks, fruit and rum punch for you to enjoy, as you take in the panoramic views on the journey back to the pier.

If you are pregnant this type of excursion may not be appropriate for you. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are fit and well enough to take part in the activities booked and you are reminded to take care for your own safety.

    BEACH/WATER RELATED EXCURSIONS
    For any excursion involving water, guests are reminded to exercise particular care. Alcohol and eating a full meal should be avoided before swimming. If buoyancy aids are provided for an activity they must be worn at all times. You should bear in mind that the sea is unpredictable. Lifeguards are unlikely to be present and there may not be a flag system to indicate whether or not it is safe to go in the water. In addition, beach activities may not be supervised or accompanied and so you should take care to satisfy yourself as to the safety of the beach and/or the sea at the time of your excursion. Please exercise caution when entering the sea as the seabed and aquatic environment is capable of springing surprises and we have not inspected the beach or seabed for its safety. Children must be supervised by you at all times near water. All activities on the beach, water and in the sea are undertaken at your own risk. You’ll need to take swimwear, a towel, sunscreen and flat shoes that can be worn in the water.
