You'll never forget the time you crewed a private Antigua sailing charter! You will be met outside the cruise ship dock, where your taxi will be waiting to take you across the island to Falmouth Harbour, one of the most spectacular parts of the island and considered by many to be the sailing capital of the Caribbean.
With a maximum of eight guests and your crew of two, this unforgettable yacht voyage makes for a very exclusive day on the water. After a safety briefing, head out of Falmouth Harbour surrounded by many of the world's most famous and expensive super mega-yachts. You'll be encouraged to become an active member of the crew while on board. However, if sitting back and enjoying the spectacular scenery is more your thing, that's fine, too.
A typical itinerary includes a sail to English Harbour, where you can get an Admiral Nelson's-eye view of his working dockyard and the historic buildings. From there, sail under Shirley Heights and the Pillars of Hercules, up the coast past mountainous and deserted coastline to Carlisle Bay. There will be time for a swim and snorkel with the included gear before the sail back to Falmouth, where your taxi will be waiting to take you back to the cruise ship dock. The trip is yours and can be tailored to your group's requirements.

The half day charter was awesome. Our crew, Simon and Nico, made the trip very memorable. We wanted, and they provided, a full sail in open water. It was exhilarating and fun. It's not your calm water excursion: you will be moving and adjusting constantly. It would be tough to have small children on this excursion as well as anyone that is prone to motion sickness. Bring sun screen and sunglasses. I'd do it again in a minute. Ask for Simon and Nico, they were great.
