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. Many large sailing yachts available for charter make their winter base right here in Antigua.

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 to Green Island for walking along undeveloped, sparkling white sand beaches. 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. Use our destination story as a guide to beach fun!

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!

Local Sights

Antigua yacht charter

English Harbor
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. A national park encompasses the whole of the dockyard, 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 to see Frigate Sanctuary's migrating birds and their vivid red mating signals. This lovely, undeveloped island strikes a nice balance against the bustling yachting hub of Antigua.
