Situated in the picturesque Jolly Harbour Marina, just a short 20-minute taxi ride from St. John’s Port, WCT Antigua Reef Riders presents you with a unique opportunity to captain your own 11-foot, 2-seater inflatable Reef Rider boat on our award-winning snorkeling tour.

We are a small company that specialises in offering small, intimate tours, usually of no more than 10 guests, although we can accommodate larger groups.

The Reef Riders offer a fun, safe, enclosed, secure, and exhilarating experience, far safer than jetskis, and there’s absolutely no previous experience required.

That’s why our tours are recommended by most of the cruise lines visiting our island, including:

♦ Royal Caribbean ♦ Celebrity Cruises ♦ P & O ♦ NCL ♦ Viking ♦ Disney ♦Carnival ♦ Marella ♦ Windstar ♦Royal Clipper ♦ Crystal ♦ SilverSea

This tour was a great experience, and would highly recommend. The staff were friendly and very knowledgeable, they were able to answer any questions and enhanced the experience.
Both my young children really enjoyed the day and were able to get up close to the various tropical fishes and sea life during the snorkelling activity.
We would definitely book this tour again and would recommend to anyone visiting Antigua.
Many thanks to all the staff at Reef Riders!
Fantastic half day experience

What a fantastic 2.30 hrs and excellent value.we booked direct from the UK and found Andrew helpful efficient and responded instantly to our query when we had arrived.
The trip to and from the reef was brilliant, as the boats zoomed along,as good if not better than a jet ski.
Whole experience was great with such a friendly relaxed family business, who looked after us from start to finish
Highly recommended and value for money experience whilst in Antigua
Awesome experience

My wife and I greatly enjoyed our time with reef riders. The self drive boats were a lot of fun and easy to maneuver. The reef was one of the best that we had snorkeled at. Our guide was knowledgeable and provided us plenty of time to enjoy ourselves and swim around the massive reef on our own. The equipment was well maintained and functioning properly. As we were leaving the reef several large boats came up with groups of tourists. The tourists all had suboptimal equipment and were made to snorkel in a life vest and as a group. It looked awful in comparison
Our family really enjoyed...

A brilliant experience. Great fun to drive the really quite fast boat/jet ski and see some of the other beaches/ coastal properties. Snorkeling we saw some lovely fish etc but the highlight was the turtle - so graceful. Very nice people.
Must do!

What a great time!! We highly enjoyed the Reef Rider experience. It was so much fun operating our own boat and riding down Antiguas coast line. Tigger was a great host. Cades reef was beautiful. Thank you for a great time!!
First class service

Amazing Experience!

The Reef Riders tour was amazing! The self-drive boats were easy to use and so much fun to drive down the coast of Antigua. The snorkeling was great, saw tons of fish, jellyfish, reef life, etc. in crystal clear and calm water.
Biggest shout outs go to Tigger and his parents who run the whole show. Tigger was an excellent tour guide, you can tell he knows his way around the island, the boats, the reef, etc. We felt like we were in good hands during the tour! 10/10 recommend to anyone looking for a unique activity while visiting Antigua.
Must do trip

A must do trip while in Antigua. Our guide Tigger was very friendly & knowledgeable about the area, he took us on a 30-40 ride past some lovely beaches and coves, then we stopped and got into a very beautiful coral reef full of colour and so much sea life. On the way back he took as around what appeared to be a pelican island.
Overall a fantastic afternoon our, so much fun
