Another lovely tripadvisor review from someone who took their kids on our Eco Tour. It was the highlight of their trip to Antigua which we have to be very proud of. Thanks so much for posting!
We took the eco-tour with two young children, four and seven. Our crew was Ross, Jourdain, and Nicola. All three were friendly and helpful, especially answering questions from our inquisitive seven-year-old, but Nicola was a real gem. She helped the kids with the easy climb on Great Bird Island and the trickier one at Hell's Gate, and both took a real shine to her. We had the only kids on the boat; there were I believe around twenty-six passengers in total, but it didn't feel crowded. My older daughter loved hearing about turtles, mangroves, and other wildlife. The younger one enjoyed the trip, but didn't get nearly as much out of it. The snorkelling was a little beyond the capabilities of the kids - it's too bad we couldn't have dropped the kids off at some shallow and calmer water. All-in-all, a great day trip and for my older daughter, the highlight of our week in Antigua.
