Antigua Yacht Charter
This popular Caribbean island falls roughly midway through the Leeward Island Chain. North and west you will find the other popular charter destinations of St. Barts, St. Kitts & Nevis, and St. Maarten. It also has a major airport with direct flights from Europe and mainland USA making it a convenient location to start or end fully crewed yacht charters.
Antigua is the largest English speaking Leeward Island. From fully crewed mega yachts to crewed sailing yachts, we can help you make the ideal choice for your family and friends on whatever type of yacht you'd like. Many large sailing yachts available for charter make their winter base right here.
Some guests choose to start their yacht charter from Falmouth Harbor, which is an attractive, modern marina. Enjoy an afternoon excursion to Nonesuch Bay for watersports or just walking the undeveloped sparkling white sand beaches of Green Island, one of the outer islands. This uninhabited island offers seclusion and excellent snorkeling. Bask in the tranquility of Harmony Hall, an old converted sugar mill. Or simply beach hop all week long. There's different beach here for every day of the year (365)!
A short walk or taxi ride from Falmouth Harbor takes you to historic and charming English Harbor. Before you leave the island, be sure to visit Shirley Heights, a garrison above the bay. The Heights offer stunning views of neighboring islands - a perfect photo opportunity on your Leeward Islands yacht charter. For the party crowd, Sunday evening at Shirley Heights is a must!

This former naval base is now a historical site. 18th Century fort ruins and museums can be found here. As a popular yachting destination, there are a number of safe harbors in the area. The legendary Horatio Nelson of the Royal Navy sailed here and you can too! Once Great Britain's most important Caribbean military base, it is now a playland for adults.
Nelson's Dock Yard
Dating from 1743, this is one of the most popular attractions. Today the dockyard is the home to an eclectic mix of shops, galleries, restaurants, and markets. Lord Nelson's telescope can be found in the small nautical museum here. If you visit today you can explore Nelson's Dockyard, part of a national park. The park embraces the whole of English Harbor and Shirley Heights.
Barbuda is the smaller, quieter sister of this two-island nation. Your Captain can arrange a local boat to take you into the Bird Sancuary to see the migrating Frigate birds and their vivid red mating signals. This lovely, undeveloped island strikes a nice balance against the bustling yachting hub of Antigua.
