Tour/Activity was fantastic!! We 2 adults and our 9-yr old son thoroughly enjoyed the ATV tour!! Manners our ATV guide was super patient and articulate in his commentary. Caribelle and its gardens were beautiful....only unfortunate thing is that Caribelle doesn't not accept any 'special orders/designs' for later shipment home when complete what you see is all that is available. ATV tour circuit itself is great- they've included at least a couple areas where you can really 'open it up' high speed and/or 'get air' if you are so inclined. What's also great is they have a small clean-up area to wash off a bit after the tour it's dusty!!.
We opted for the beach add-on Frigate Bay Beach for this tour and you can decide or agree w/ the other members of your tour on how long you would like to stay. Beautiful beach...just be prepared to shell out 10 for two loungers and an umbrella per day....there are no abbreviated rates for just a couple of hours!
A really good time on the 4-wheelers, I only wish you further up the mountains to see the forested areas. The old sugar plantation buildings were fun to walk around in. The beach we went to was great for snorkeling there is a shallow reef 30-40 foot from the beach with lots of fish to watch. There is also some great local food shacks down the beach, we had grilled lobster which was delicious.
Overall a very enjoyable day!
Smooth pickup at the hotel. It was a day when there was not not a cruise ship in port, so both the ATV tour and beach were not packed.
Ivan did a lovely job with the tour, while dealing with a novice rider. : ATV portion ended up being about 2 hours. Be ready for some dust! I would suggest log pants, and don't forget the sunglasses. You'll definitely be ready for the beach stop.
Next stop was Jam Rock Beach, cooled off, relaxed under under the umbrella's and had an casual lunch. Elvis was very flexible on the return time, which was appreciated.
