Meet Sam, Neil and your fellow guests at 14:00 (2 PM) in Jolly Harbour Marina, Antigua. Jolly Harbour is approximately 30 minutes in a taxi from the airport. Once you are settled in your private cabin on board Nemo we will have our guest briefing and head out to anchor with Five Islands as our backdrop. Our first evening meal will be on board Nemo under the stars.
Will set sail for Hermitage Bay, a beautiful and secluded anchorage for lunch. This will give us a chance to let anyone who wants to a chance to work the ropes and helm Nemo. Then we will head to Deep Bay, home to the wreck of the Andes, and a great spot for a snorkel. We will have dinner on board.
Beautiful Great Bird Island is our sailing destination today, and it is a perfect spot for snorkelling, kayaking and relaxing. To get there we have to tack up Boon Channel which is great fun and will give us all a workout! Hike up to the top of Great Bird Island and get great views of both the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea and watch the birds having fun in the thermals.
A longer sail day today as we head to Barbuda and plenty of time for time for anyone who wants to take the helm. The aim is to reach Low Bay when the sun is high in the sky. Our evening meal will be served on board.
Relax in the hammock on board or head ashore for a trip to visit the Frigate Bird Sanctuary, which is located in the Codrington Lagoon. Then we will take a short sail down to Cocoa Bay. Here you can snorkel, kayak, paddleboard or simply relax on the incredible beach. Dinner will be on board or ashore.
We will sail back to Antigua and head to Ffryes Bay for lunch and then onto Carlisle Bay. This beautiful secluded cove is a perfect place to snorkelling and see turtles. We can also pop ashore to the exclusive resort for some cocktails before we have dinner on board.
A short sail to the historic English Harbour which was inscribed in 2016 as a UNESCO world heritage site and is home to Nelson’s Dockyard, a fully restored 18th-century working dockyard. In days gone by, Nelson would keep his fleet here and there is a museum dedicated to his memory and has some fascinating exhibits. We will head ashore for our final dinner and get to sample some of the great local cuisines.
A leisurely sail back into Jolly Harbour inside Cades Reef will give you a chance to hone all the sailing skills you have learnt during the week. We will arrive in time for a noon (12 PM) departure from the marina.
