What I wouldn’t give for that warm Caribbean breeze right now. (and a rum punch!)
Antigua is a beautiful little island in the Caribbean. In the few hours I spent there I had quite an exciting time! The cruise port is a tad bit overwhelming, so I highly recommend doing the catamaran sail & snorkel excursion if you are there during a cruise 🙂
Stunning views pulling into port:
While you wait for the excursion to begin there is plenty of shopping and food to enjoy. We ate at a little restaurant that had fantastic drinks/food, and a great view of the ship.
Ah, and now the relaxation begins! I sat on the netting of a catamaran for the first time, and it was hard to not feel like royalty!
Next, we set sail quite a ways out from the shore to a beautiful reef to snorkel and float around. We saw many beautiful fish and other sea creatures.
After about an hour of snorkeling, we were then taken to a gorgeous private beach were we swam and enjoyed some complementary rum punch.
The excursion was roughly $70 per person and well worth it. A whole afternoon of sunshine and warm ocean water. Not to mention all of the unlimited rum punch and snacks 🙂
