    Animal-lovers are sure to delight in this 4-hour exploration of the exotic plants and animals that populate the land and sea of Antigua. Get dirty with a backcountry wildlife-spotting trip by 4x4 before proceeding to Stingray City for an intimate encounter with these gentle fish.

    Start your trip with a pickup between 8 and 8:30am from your hotel, proceeding with your guide to the backroads of Antigua for an off-road safari tour of the island’s interior. Refresh yourself with some complimentary jungle juice as you traverse trails not typically accessible by car, keeping your eyes peeled from some of Antigua’s many species of rare birds.

    From there, you’ll head to Seatons, the coastal town that is home Stingray City Antigua. Listen to a brief safety session before transferring to Barge Reef for your stingray experience. Feed and swim with these beautiful creatures in the shallow crystal-clear waters off the reef, accompanied all the while by a staff member from the park.

    Still exhilarated from your stingray encounter, return to the park’s dive store to clean off with a shower before enjoying lunch and a complimentary fruit or rum punch. At the conclusion of lunch, receive a drop-off back at your Antigua hotel.

    Great tour
    Kelsey_C
    , Dec 2021
    We had big John who I couldn’t recommend enough for our tour. The island tour was nice and big John was able to answer any questions you had. The stingray tour was fantastic and was only about 25 of us there. Someone did say before covid it’d be well over 100 so glad we came when we did. Overall would 100% recommend. Our only down point was they made us get a taxi to the tour start point because we stayed at nonsuch bay. The tour was already not the cheapest and that added £80 to the day. I do think maybe we should have been reimbursed somewhat because the price for the trip includes transport.

    Wonderful to be with these magnificent creatures - a very unique experience. It got a little crowded by the end but nothing can take away the jaw dropping power of it all. The trip to Betty’s Hope and Devil’s bridge was equally awe inspiring and a reminder of a past we forget too often

    Amazing tour, there is no better experience than one with a local expert! Our guide Les was excellent and very knowledgable, we felt very much looked after - thank you so much! The Stingray city was excellent, one of the highlights of our holidays - defo recommend. Overall, Viator is a trusted brand, did tours with them in the US and so knew they deliver every time.

    This was amazing Great narration during the relatively safe and smooth boat trip to the site despite despite some mildly rough seas . Great assistance at the site by the staff who helped with all of us neophyte and more squeamish tourists. We were able to feed and hold the stingrays and pose for pictures without reservation. Sting rays were tame and assuredly used to the feedings. They swarmed all around us while we were there. No complaints about the loading, the ride to the site, the safety guidance given prior to arriving at the site, nor any other portion of the trip. Very professional all the time. My wife and I enjoyed it immensely. Other Passenger's children seemed to have no issues. Recommend it to everyone. Recommend it to all.

    This experience was amazing from beginning to end. We were picked up at our hotel in a safari jeep by Travis, a super tour guide! We made a quick stop in St John to sign some papers, grab a drink and two additional passengers. Travis proceeded to take us on a bumpy, informative tour of the island. He stopped multiple times to show us unique flowers and plants and explain how they were used for food, medicine, etc. He also stopped by the donkey sanctuary so we could see the donkeys as well as all the other beautiful sites on the island. Next stop was our visit with the sting rays. It's a short boat ride to the most spectacular sand bar full of sting rays and a few small reefs loaded with colorful fish of all kinds. The sting rays are so friendly and enjoyed being pet and fed. The guides are very knowledgeable and know the sting rays by name. Some have worked there over ten years and genuinely love their jobs. After the sting rays we had lunch on Bettys Hope Hill - very enjoyable lunch made by local folks with the sugar mills behind you and a wonderful view in front. We even had time to go in the sugar mills and read about them, plus they have a bathroom there in a small very small museum. Our last stop of the day was Devil's Bridge. It was lovely. The whole experience was a great way to check off mulitple thing you wanted to see on the island in a very fun way. Enjoy and ask for Travis!

    Amazing tour! Highly recommendable! The Jeep Safari was really funny and our guide was very nice. He showed us all the places to be and explained us many local trees, plants and fruits. The lunch at Betty's Hope was delicious. The stingrays are wonderful animals, really playful and very soft.
