If this itinerary is of interest, then please get in contact. We are happy to mix things up to make sure you have an unforgettable holiday. Changes may take place due weather conditions as well.

Note: Due to the destruction caused by Hurricanes Irma in Barbuda, it may not be possible to visit this island during the 2017/18 season as we need to give the Island time to rebuild. If you decide you would like to book this yacht charter, we can determine together whether it is feasible to go there or not. Otherwise, we will visit the stunning Green Island on the South-East coast of Antigua.

DaySample Itinerary

Meet your crew, Sam and Neil in Jolly Harbour Marina, Antigua. Jolly Harbour is approximately 30 minutes in a taxi from the airport. Once you are settled on board lovely Nemo we will have our guest briefing and then head out to anchor with Five Islands as our backdrop. Our first evening meal will be on board Nemo under the stars.


Will set sail for Hermitage Bay, a beautiful and secluded anchorage for lunch. This will give us a chance to let anyone who wants to, some time working the ropes and helming Nemo. Then we will head to Deep Bay, home to the wreck of the Andes, and a great spot for a snorkel. We will have a delicious dinner on board.


Great Bird Island is our sailing destination today, and it is a perfect spot for snorkelling, kayaking and relaxing. To get there we have to tack up Boon Channel which is great fun and will give us all a workout! Hike up to the top of Great Bird Island and get great views of both the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea and watch the birds having fun in the thermals.


A longer sail day today as we head to beautiful Barbuda and plenty of time for time for anyone who wants to take the helm. The aim is to reach Low Bay when the sun is high in the sky. Our evening meal will be served on board.


Relax in the hammock on board. Then we will take a short sail down to Cocoa Bay. Here you can snorkel, kayak, paddleboard or simply relax on the incredible beach.


We will sail back to Antigua and head to Ffryers Bay for lunch and then onto Carlisle Bay. This beautiful secluded cove is a perfect place to snorkelling and see turtles. We can also pop ashore to the exclusive resort for some cocktails before we have dinner on board.


A short sail to the historic English Harbour which was inscribed in 2016 as a UNESCO world heritage site and is home to Nelson’s Dockyard, 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. We will head ashore for our final dinner and get to sample some of the great local cuisines.


A leisurely sail back into Jolly Harbour inside Cades Reef will give you a chance to hone all the sailing skills you have learnt during the week.

Antigua & Barbuda is a country made up of the islands of Antigua and Barbuda and several smaller islands. It is well known for reef-lined beaches, rainforests and resorts. Antigua’s Jolly, Falmouth and English Harbours are yachting hubs, and English Harbour includes the site of historic Nelson’s Dockyard, now part of a UNESCO world heritage site.

Antigua is famous for turquoise waters and having hundreds of white sandy beaches – there are supposedly 365, one for every day of the year. So, if you are looking for an unspoilt paradise, you will find it here. A cluster of tiny offshore islands including Great Bird Island are perfect snorkelling and bird watching spots. Green Island to the east is great for kayaking and paddle-boarding.
