Excursion Description

Saddle up for a relaxing scenic horseback ride along land and beautiful beaches to view Antigua’s historic fort.  

On this excursion you will:  

  • Take a 10-minute bus ride from the pier to Runaway Bay where you will listen to a safety briefing and be assigned a horse according to your riding ability and size.  
  • Mount up and follow your guide as you ride across the land and beach, with beautiful views of the Caribbean Sea, towards historic Fort James.  
  • Learn that Fort James was built in 1739 and is the only military site on the island that still has its full complement of cannons in place; it also offers fabulous views of St. John’s Harbour and the lovely coastline.  
  • Wind you way through breezy Cauina trees and across open land with views of the multi-hued Caribbean Sea on one side and a sugar mill and lines of coconut trees to the other.
  • Continue your ride along Runaway Bay, with gently sloping sand and cool waters.Traversing back through shady lanes, you will find yourselves back at the start of your tour.
  • Watch as your guide unsaddles your horse and you’ll have the opportunity to ride your horse in the Caribbean Sea (optional and sea conditions permitting).  
  • Shower and refresh yourself before the bus ride back to your ship.
