This is a sample 3 Night Antigua Sailing Itinerary. Each itinerary is customized based on guest preference.
Your catamaran, TALARIA, is docked at Jolly Harbour Marina, on the South West coast of Antigua. Upon arrival, your crew will greet you with a refreshing cocktail and show you the yacht and your cabins. Then sail out of Jolly Harbour to a nearby overnight anchorage at Five Islands. Watch the sunset and enjoy a delicious dinner aboard.
Following breakfast, we do a short briefing on all safety aspects and set sail past Five Islands for Deep Bay. Once anchored in Deep Bay, you can relax on the beach, take a short hike up to historic Fort Barrington or snorkel on the 1905 wreck of the “Andes”- an old wood and iron carrier that caught fire after anchoring, en route from Trinidad to Peru. Enjoy lunch board before setting sail along the northern shores of Antigua and stop at Long Island, home of the exclusive Jumby Bay Resort. We will spend the night at anchor in this idyllic bay. You can take a romantic starlit stroll along the shore after dinner, or simply relax on the trampoline or sun mattresses before retiring to your cabins.
On day 3 of your Antigua sailing itinerary, take a short trip over to Red Head Reef for lunch. Afterward, enjoy great snorkeling, swimming, or just relaxing on board your private yacht charter. In the afternoon we move position over to Great Bird Island, a wildlife sanctuary and home to the rare and endangered Antigua Racer Snake, a non-venomous snake unique to the island. There is a path that leads to the top of the island for a spectacular panoramic view of the bay. After Sundowners, the barbeque is lit, and we will serve another delicious dinner at this stunning location. Here, light pollution from the islands is virtually non-existent. So, you can enjoy a nightcap and some amazing star gazing!
In the morning, we take a sail to Cades Reef on the Western side of Antigua. Here, we will drop anchor and spend the rest of the morning exploring the inner reef – where we often see stingrays and harmless reef sharks – and round off with another wonderful lunch before heading over to the pale blue waters of Jolly Beach. Here you can enjoy the beaches and beach bars, buy that last-minute souvenir from the beach vendors or even have your hair braided with colorful beads! Depending on flight times, we will slowly make our way back to the dock in Jolly Harbour.
