You will be given full instructions and safety briefing on how to drive your own boat (2 persons per boat) with its own 25hp outboard motor. You will be issued with your own life vest, snorkel, mask and fins and then your tour guide will lead you slowly through the stunning Jolly Harbour marina weaving through some of the beautiful yachts moored there.
Once you leave the harbor, you will get to open up the engines and ride over the waves.
On your way to Cade’s Reef, you will see much of the south-west coast of Antigua, past the stunning Valley Church Bay, Ffryes Bay, and Darkwood Beach before going around Johnson’s Point and heading into Cade’s Bay.
Don’t forget to give a big wave to the envious people on the beach or large catamarans as you go by, bouncing over the waves in charge of your very own boat.
Then spend time snorkeling on the beautiful Cade’s Reef, part of Antigua’s National Marine Park, before climbing back aboard your Reef Rider for the return journey.
But the fun doesn’t stop there! On your trip back around the island, there will be time for you to play on the boats, riding around the empty bays, making donuts and figures of eights in the water at speeds of up to 30 mph all under the supervision of your expert guide. Don’t forget to hold on tight! One of the not to be missed “things to do in Antigua”.
Then it’s back to the marina where you can dry off and buy some souvenirs of your amazing time with Antigua Reef Riders.

Hurricane Irma Update
We are a small family-owned business.
Antigua is experiencing a short-term boom in cruise ship visitors this year due to the effects of the hurricanes in our neighboring islands. Due to unprecedented demand for our tours this season we have decided to try to implement a structured waitlist process.
Use this option only if there is no availability on the day of your visit and you wish to be placed on the waiting list. Allocations will be made on a first come first served basis.
We often have unsold seats returned to us 24 hours before the tour starts. If you wish to be considered for these seats please let us know in the comments box.
