The Private Accessible 5 hour Antigua Shore Excursion offers a memorable overview of the highlights of the beautiful Antigua, at a comfortable pace tailored to your needs. Please note that this accessible excursion requires that the disabled traveler transfer to a regular seat during the driving portion of the tour.
Begin your day in Antigua by meeting your friendly guide/driver by the St. John’s cruise dock. Board the air-conditioned vehicle and start your comfortable, beautiful scenic ride around the island while enjoying lively commentary by your private guide.
Your first stop during your private accessible Antigua tour is Betty’s Hope, the first large sugar plantation on Antigua. This former sugar plantation contributed largely to the island’s rapid development of large-scale sugar production, and it holds significant importance in Antiguan history. While the only surviving structures on the site are two stone sugar mills and the remains of the still house, the site is beautiful and a must see when visiting Antigua.
Next on your Antigua adventure is a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience and capture the breathtaking Devil’s Bridge. This naturally formed bridge is constantly pounded by the waves from the ocean sending sprays high into the air. Get out of the vehicle, soak in the island breeze and admire the beautiful views of the site. Usually, small vendor stands are set up nearby where you can do some local souvenir shopping. Don’t forget your camera for this tour!
This accessible Antigua shore excursion also takes you to one of the highest rated attractions of the island, Nelson’s Dockyard. While St. John’s is the capital city of Antigua, the historic heart of the island is the English Harbour. During the Napoleonic wars, the Harbor was used by Admirals Nelson, Rodney and Hood as a strategically secure home for the British Navy. Today, Nelson’s Dockyard forms parts of a national park, peppered with several things to see and do, including a museum, market stalls selling gifts, hotels, restaurants and a yacht haven. Some buildings in the area date back to the 1750s, and the site also offers a fascinating collection of palms and plants. History enthusiasts will love this place!
During your wheelchair accessible Antigua cruise excursion, you'll also experience lush tropical rain forest and beautiful picturesque beaches. There will be time for a stop to enjoy a delicious lunch at an accessible restaurant before heading back to the cruise dock for your next adventure on-board your cruise ship.
