Such a great experience!

This was such a great experience! We booked this excursion through Viator, as our Sandals resort did not offer a Cade’s reef tour in a small group setting. We were hesitant to go outside of the Sandals excursions, but so incredibly glad we did!! This is such a nice, family-owned company. We were picked up by the owner and the ride was so enjoyable (unlike the shuttle vans!). The owner was so knowledgeable and kind. Our tour included us and one other couple, led by Tigger who is a natural people-person that made the experience fun. From what I remember him saying, typical tours include approximately 4-8 people, on occasion 10 people max. We had the whole area to ourselves for snorkeling. The inflatable boats are so fun and such a great way to get to the reef! We saw large boats doing the Cade’s tour from Sandals that had 20-25 people on it at least— I’m SO glad we chose Reef Riders! We saw plenty of fish and a sting ray. The entire excursion was about 2 hours or so, not including transport to/from resort. Robin was so sweet and polite, offering us water and tending to our bags. When we come back to Antigua, we will most definitely book this again!

A wonderful time and great value for the spend. Family run business who took great care in talking about the island, picking us up from the hotel and sharing their experience and their love of Antigua. The boats were a lot of fun and they brought us to a great spot for snorkeling. ! Our tour guide was the family’s son Tigger, was so easy to get along with, accommodating and making sure that we truly enjoyed the experience. I would recommend this to anybody

It was so much fun driving ad bouncing over the waves. I felt like a kid again. Going fast with the wind going through your hair ad the water splashing you. You just don’t want to stop.

This was such a great tour!! The owner of the company, Andy, personally picked us up from our hotel which was so kind. He shared a lot of fun facts about Antigua and was so friendly and welcoming. Tigger was an awesome tour guide and we had so much fun cruising along the coast of Antigua and snorkeling! Highly recommend!

The owner (!!) of Reef Riders picked us up at the hotel and trekked us to the location of departure on the other side of the island. These people are the epitome of hospitality. It is a family owned business and they take such pride in what they do. Tigger (owner’s son) was incredibly knowledgeable and made us feel safe and made sure we had an excellent time. Snorkeling in Cade’s Reef was the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen! I cannot recommend this excursion enough. 10/10.

Really good experience with a great family run business. We were looked after from beginning to end and Tiggr who took us to the reef was great. It was fun to be on our own boat.Would definitely recommend this as a fun thing to do and a nicer experience than being herded on one of the larger boat trips we saw.

Great experience from start to end! Picked up at our hotel in a comfy air conditioned ride…great instruction on equipment…lots of highlights from the actual outing - ample time to snorkel at the reef - friendly and knowledgeable guide. Drop off back at the hotel was via grocery store and fruit stand stops we requested at no additional cost. A great time had by all.

The view of the island from the water is something I will always remember. Absolutely breathtaking scenery and so much fun! Didn’t spend as much time at Cade’s Bay as I thought. The trip turned out to be 2 hours instead of 3 but we were able to see quite a bit a the reef. I’ve snorkeled all over the Carribean and was able to see things I’m Antigua I’ve never seen before! Great trip and amazing staff. So caring. They provided water, a safe place for my belongings and one of my guides even lent me his hat to keep the sun out of my eyes and baby shampoo ton keep my mask clear. Highly recommend Reef Riders! Definitely one of the highlights of my entire vacation.

Best excursion we had in Antigua

Definitely the best adventure we had during our week stay in Antigua. When we arrived, we first met with Andy, the owner. He explained that he had meant to block any reservations that day, but due to a scheduling or software error, we got a spot. But instead of cancelling us, he decided to honor his commitment and we basically got a private tour! We then met his son, Tigger, who led us the way out to the reef. The ride out was in itself a crazy adventure. We didn't know it at the time, but the wind and waves had picked up, so it was a thrilling ride out along the coast to our destination. We made it to the reef, and Tigger was excellent at pointing out different fish and sea creatures as we snorkeled around the reef. After some time, we zipped back to the harbor and ended our trip. We had some great banter with our hosts (England was due to play Italy in the Copa Europa finals that afternoon). Of the many excursions we did on the island, this is definitely the one we've talked with our friends and family about the most, and we highly recommend it to anyone looking for an adventure!

Hi John Thanks for the awesome review. After what feels like months the winds have finally calmed down so the ride to the reef has been less crazy but still great fun. We’re glad you had a great morning….not so glad that you had a great afternoon, but Italy were definitely the better team. I hope we’ll see you both, together with some of your friends and family in the future. The world cup final is 18th Dec 2022. Fancy a rematch? Andy and Tiggr

Took this tour the last week of April. My wife and I were lucky enough to be the only ones going that morning. We were met by Andy and Tigger, and they went through a quick safety review. Then it was off to the races! These little boats are cool. They are not really fast but not slow, maybe 20 to 25mph. Plenty fast enough. We rode out to a reef and went snorkeling for about an hour. It was amazing. We saw all kinds of colorful fish, corals and plant life. Tigger was a great guide and took us to different sites in the reef. This tour is a must when you are in Antigua!!
