Snorkeling and Sightseeing Tour of Antigua

This is a guided tour by a local spearfisherman. Taking in all the sights and sounds of the island on land and in the sea, 95% chance of snorkeling with seas turtles(I say 95% because they are not in enclosed areas they are free to go wherever, although we normally always see them every time we go). This is a private tour, you will be the only travelers. It is roughly 5 hours long. There is chips and cold water in the vehicle. Lunch is not provided on the tour but a stop for local food can be arranged with the guide. You will also have videos of you snorkeling around the shipwrecks and turtles emailed to you after the tour. We can also accommodate all types of travelers, even those who do not wish to snorkel.
