Using our 45 ft offshore speed boats, specifically custom designed for our excursion, eli designed another Adventure Tour to match his wildly popular Eco-Tour.
You have probably heard all about the Eco-Tour which was designed to be a re-creation of Eli’s childhood days, spent exploring the secret spots of the North Sound. This Xtreme tour takes adventurers right around Antigua’s rugged, 365 beach coastline. Count them if you can!
Eli developed this tour to stay within the same theme of his famous Eco-Tour, but to be different enough for you to enjoy both on the same vacation. Here is a short promo film to see. While its loading turn off the volume and read the rest of the description below. After remember to turn back on the volume and click play to see it again….:
If you would like another version please have a look at this one too.
The main highlights of this Xtreme adventure, making it totally unique, are the high speed Miami Vice style run through the amazing islands of the north sound with its myriad coral reefs, the exclusive Stingray City Marine Park swim where you can have your picture taken actually holding one of these ancient and beautiful fish; the Robinson Crusoe style, buffet lunch at Green Island with your toes in the water; the tour of Nelson’s Dockyard with your own on-board local guide; the guided snorkel trip at the awesome Pillars of Hercules with its volcanic boulders below the surface, and the swim and beach combing at the extremely secluded and beautiful Rendezvous Bay. This tour is done within the same time frame as the Eco-Tour, and we manage to do this because our Xtreme boats are FAST. Between stops our boats will race you past the beaches and shores of Antigua so you’d better be a quick counter to get the 365!
There are however a few things you have to keep in mind before you decide to go on this tour because, like the Eco-Tour, this tour is not for everyone.
1) The boat is a high performance 45-foot power boat using three, eco-friendly, 225hp Four Stroke Yamaha engines that sip fuel. Top cruise speed is an exhilarating 40 MPH which we will be doing passing the islands of the North Sound. If you “feel the need for speed” then this will be your favorite part of the trip! But if high speed thrills have never been your thing, then you would definitely be happier on the slower paced Eco-Tour or even The Classic Yacht Tour.
2) Although the boat has been designed for comfortable high speed cruising offshore, the 5 mile run from Stingray City to our Lunch Spot on the North of Green Island could be a little “bumpy” for some depending on weather. This tour is not recommended if you are pregnant. However, if you are the kind of person who likes some excitement and wants to experience what an offshore powerboat race feels like then the spray of this wild, open water section will keep you smiling.
3) This isn’t the booze cruise your parents did in the “good old days”. If you are “young at heart” (and not “faint of heart”) it could just be the thrill of a lifetime. With five stops along the 50 miles run around the island this tour is action packed. The speed of our Xtreme “bus” means that we have more time to make stops while going around the island of Antigua. There is no other trip on the island that does as much in a single day.
So if you are up for some extreme action and are loving the idea of getting into the water with dozens of very friendly rays (they will come up and touch you!!), and if the image of that 40mph burst past the islands of the North Sound, and the adventurous ride in the Atlantic – if all this turns you on… then you are an ideal candidate for the Xtreme adventure! ….. We do serve our famous Traditional rum punch, but only at the end of the tour when the adventure is drawing to a close.
Our Xtreme Circumnav adventure is unbeatable as a way to see the coastline of our beautiful island and it could definitely be the most fun you have ever had on a holiday excursion.
Snorkeling gear, a delicious lunch and drinks are provided.
