Antigua is one of the great yachting hubs of the Caribbean, and is the home, particularly in winter, to some of the world's most beautiful yachts. Even for the non-sailor - it's worth taking a walk around English Harbour, especially Nelson's Dockyard, or Falmouth Marina, just to see some of these.

Chartering is suprisingly easy, with a choice of day cruises, term charters, crewed or bareboat options available from the main centres at Jolly Harbour and English Harbour / Falmouth.

For groups of four or more people, a day's private charter can be a cost effective alternative to one of the much larger boat trips, with the advantage of being able to set your own itinerary and enjoy a great deal more privacy than is offered on the bigger tours.
