Honeymoon - Antigua

Antigua was a blast. The shore excursion we chose was called "Mini Boats and Hidden Beaches." Basically, each couple, and there were only five, were given a motorized 10 foot dingy. We spent the morning blasting around the bay following our guide as he showed us the different outlying land mases of Antigua.

We made our way to a secluded part of the island that was only accessible by water and found a nice cove to stop and swim. The water in Antigua was as blue as we've ever seen before - the visibility was amazing and the water was perfect. After that it was back on the dingy's racing around. The best part though, besides of course having our own boat to play around with, was seeing a dolphin swimming in the bay. Our group spent a few minutes circling the area watching the pod of dolphins surface for air which was really cool.

By the time the excursion was over, we still had an entire afternoon left on Antigua so we set out to explore the island. Our goal on this trip had been to find some artwork to take home with us that really captured the essence of the Caribbean, as luck would have it we found this little store with a lot of great original art pieces. After looking around for a little while, we decided on two pieces and happily took them back to the boat with us. Antigua had been a great stop on the cruise!
