Captain your own 10 foot 2 seater inflatable motorboat Reef Rider as you and your friend explore the beautiful west coast of Antigua out to the stunning Cades Reef. Put on your snorkel, mask and fins (provided) and dive into the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. Our boats are small enough to moor inside the reef lagoon to get you closer to the amazing marine life including stingrays, lobster, parrot-fish, surgeon-fish and wrasse, as well as the beautiful coral reef. Depending upon the time of day you may even see a turtle swimming in the lagoon!

We had such a great time today! Andy was on time picking us up at our resort and told us the story of how he came from the UK to Antigua. (Ask him)
Tiggr (son) took us out and had a fun time snorkeling with one other couple today. He is versed in the fish species and island! Beautiful fish, a stingray and amazing coral. Highly recommend this tour-you get to see amazing shoreline and homes, hotels along the way.
Fantastic family run business! Support small businesses! Will recommend!
Thrill seeking adventure with gorgeous views

Tiggr was really amazing, he knew the island so well and spoke about some of the landmarks we passed in detail! Definitely was a thrill riding those reef riders, takes a couple of minutes to get the hang of steering and accelerating but once you get it, it's so fun. We snorkeled in 8-9ft water which meat we got really close to the reefs and saw some fish. Andy & Rachel are so pleasant and took care of my belongings while we were gone and offered us ice cold water. Remember sunscreen and stay hydrated, it's hot out there, but the views are breathtaking! We also booked a cab service with this excursion and Vincent, our driver, was amazing. He was punctual, polite and a great resource because he was very knowledgeable of the history of the island.
Enjoy the sun, fun, and snorkeling.

We had a great time waving riding out to the reef, the snorkeling was great. Saw lots of fish and just enjoyed the time without all the tourist.

Tigger showed us the place to dive and found some great things to look at.

We highly recommend this tour worth every Penny.
Perfect day!

Went out on 30/8 just us so a perfect trip. Quick briefing then driving out to the Reef past jolly harbour dark wood and other perfect beaches. Only us at the reef so even better! Reef riders are great fun and easy to work.

I would highly recommend this trip, the boats were great fun, the views of local beaches wonderful and we saw loads of fish when snorkelling at the reef. I am not confident at snorkelling but that wasn’t a problem I felt totally ok with this trip. A great morning.
Exhilarating ride and wonderful snorkel.

Fabulous ride and snorkel today . Very exhilarating ride out to the reef in choppy conditions ( this actually made it more exciting) . 45 minutes of wonderful snorkelling was plenty to everything on the reef. I would definitely recommend this trip if you are in Antigua.
Definitely recommend

Very professional operation. Transportation from cruise port offered. And our guide 'Tigger' could not have been better. This was not our first time enjoying Reef Riders. We will continue to book them every time we visit Antigua.
