This is a first class tour on a 80ft power catamaran, the name says it all! If you want to visit Antigua AND Barbuda by sea, The Excellence is the way to do it! We will pamper you all day with an open bar, and a hot local lunch at midday, and if you want to Snorkel, you can always ask!

I've taken the excellence twice now and both times had a great experience. They really know how to have a fun time. Highly recommend it for anyone who wants to have a fun time while also seeing the sights of Antigua.

$149 US. I would not advise for children with the amount of alcohol it is great for adults but not so much for children.
Do you pickup and drop off at the St. James Club & Villas
