Liquid Glow…

Experience paddling through the crystal clear waters of Anguilla by day or more spectacularly, by night. Glide over the waters from sunset in a transparent kayak illuminated by colourful LEDs that light up the ocean and attract tropical fish to the kayaks. The tours, which are led by an experienced tour guide, also offer kayakers the opportunity to spot turtles and stingrays in their natural environment.  Day tours are available to Little Bay, one of Anguilla’s most remote beaches and an ideal spot for snorkelling.

Tradition Sailing…

As the island’s national sport, many locals have learnt to sail from the moment they could walk. As well as being a highly competitive sport on the island, it is the perfect way for visitors to enjoy the glorious six marine protected areas of Anguilla including Prickly Pear Cays, where they can enjoy a day trip with a picnic. Numerous sailing events take place throughout the year, making the sport accessible for all- from serious sailors to visitors wanting to enjoy it as spectators.
