St John's cruises

Famously dusted with pristine white sands and pulsating to the rhythm of steel drums, Antigua is a real Caribbean treat. From the bustling little port of St. Johns, take an excursion across the rolling countryside to Shirley Heights, a fortress dominating the entry to English Harbour, and historic Nelson's dockyard. Today the warehouses are filled with shops and restaurants, and the sails belong to international yachts.

  • Helicopter Adventure to Montserrat

    Take an amazing flight to Montserrat and over the ‘exclusion zone’, an area off limits to ground transportation and habitation since 1997.

    Helicopter Adventure to Montserrat

    An experience not to be missed……………

    Enjoy the 30 mile flight over the sparkling turquoise Caribbean waters to the neighbouring island of Montserrat. Here, at the centre of the ‘exclusion zone’ is the live and volatile Soufrière Hills Volcano, which can only be seen close up by helicopter. Rising to an impressive 3,000 feet and dominating the island, it towers above the Tar River Gorge and Delta at its foot and frequently emits a combination of ash, smoke and steam.

    In 1997 when the volcano erupted, two-thirds of the island were made uninhabitable. View the massive destruction as you fly over a collection of evacuated villages, the previous location of the WH Bramble Airport and the charred remains of the former capital, Plymouth, in some places buried under 40 feet of ash.

    After travelling along the east coast, you’ll leave Montserrat behind, and fly back to Antigua with beautiful views of the island and coastline.
