  • Day 1

    Jolly Harbour Marina is a perfect start point for your Antigua Sailing Itinerary; it is home to several bars, restaurants, a large supermarket which is great for your provisioning, customs and immigration, a freshwater swimming pool, 18-hole golf course, banks and a fuel dock. After your boat briefing and one to one chart briefing, leave the dock and sail north to Dickenson Bay; a wide bay with a mile long beach and home to several bars and restaurants. All perfect for sundowners and enjoying some stunning sunsets.

  • Day 2

    From Dickenson Bay, sail north to Barbuda to reach Barbuda when the sun is high in the sky. Pre-book your frigate bird sanctuary tour and pre-order fresh lobster or fish to be delivered to you. Anchor at Low Bay for your first night and enjoy stunning sunsets. Dinghy out to Tuscon Rock and snorkel; look out for turtles and rays.

  • Day 3

    Sail from Low Bay around to Coco Point on the south of the island. Snorkel, kayak or simply relax with a good book.

     

  • Day 4

    Sail from Barbuda to Green Island and Nonsuch Bay on the East coast of Antigua. Green Island is a beautiful island, completely uninhabited and perfect for that getaway anchorage. Nonsuch Bay is home to Harmony Hall; an art gallery and Italian restaurant set high overlooking the bay. Enjoy cocktails in a converted sugar mill. Nonsuch Bay is also home to Nonsuch Bay Resort; breakfast, lunch, and dinner can be had at this waterfront resort. Try your hand at learning to kitesurf here; a great way to explore the large, open bay.

  • Day 5

    Sail to English Harbour or Falmouth Harbour. English Harbour is home to Nelson’s Dockyard which is a fully restored 18th-century working dockyard. In days gone by, Nelson would keep his fleet here and there is a museum dedicated to his memory and has some fascinating exhibits.

    There are many restaurants in this area and the dockyard itself has some pretty places to have a coffee or dinner. If you enjoy diving, why not join a group departing from English Harbour and visit some of the many dive sites off the south and southwest coast. Dinghy ashore and enjoy a famous Espresso Martini at Skulduggery Café, or have dinner at Cloggy’s Restaurant; famous for their ice cold rose wine and yachtie atmosphere. Marvel at the mega-yachts and super-yachts below. Enjoy the Sunday night jump- up at Shirley Heights; steel pan music, original rum punch, and reggae music will have you dancing into the night.

  • Day 6

    Sail south to Carlisle Bay. Carlisle Bay is a very pretty bay with lush vegetation on the surrounding hills. Put on your snorkels and jump right in! This is also home to Carlisle Bay resort with two lovely restaurants; East and Indigo on the Beach. Charter guests are welcome. This is a wonderful venue for a special dinner and an ideal overnight anchorage. They also have a Spa called BLUE that you are welcome to use – reservations are required.

    or  sail south around the west coast of Antigua and drop your anchor at Darkwood Beach. Arguably the best Pina Colada’s served here on this beautiful and unspoilt white sand beach. This is not an overnight anchorage so why not sail north and pick up a mooring ball in Jolly Harbour for your last night’s dinner

  • Day 7

    A final morning swim to complete your Antigua Sailing Itinerary and then make your way back into the base and disembark at noon.
