The trip is in a very large and beautifully maintained catermaran. The stop for lunch is in a lovely bay allowing for swimming and snorkelling. The crew point out all the points of interest and finish the trip with dancing. A great day out.

I've taken the excellence twice now and both times had a great experience. They really know how to have a fun time. Highly recommend it for anyone who wants to have a fun time while also seeing the sights of Antigua.
