Of course, a Caribbean vacation demands beaches, swimming pools, bars, and the pampering you get from your hotel staff. That is what rest and relaxation is all about! You deserve it! As you laze on your beach looking out to sea, do you ever consider what it might be like viewing the many beaches and scenic coastline of your island from the sea? Our 41ft Bristol sailing yacht, Joy, offers this with just as much rest, relaxation, or excitement as you wish. You deserve that too!
Private, exclusive, personal and relaxed cruises for groups of up to 6 family and friends. These are generally booked in advance to ensure the Special Day you seek is guaranteed!
We try to keep it as simple as possible with two options for your Special Day.
OPTION 1: Relaxed Day Sail
This cruise lasts between 6 & 7 hours and takes you sailing on the calmer waters of Antigua’s west coast from Deep Bay to the north and Carlisle Bay to the south.
En route you will get a spectacular view of the rolling hills of our west coast as you pass by Five Islands Harbour, Pinching Bay, Morris Bay, Ffreyes Beach, Darkwood Beach, Cades Reef and Curtain Bluff, not to mention the possibility of Turtle or Dolphin spotting within feet of the boat.
Our rates include:
- The charter of the yacht and crew
- Snorkel gear
- A sumptuous lunch of pan seared chicken breast and shrimp on a Mediterranean salad with olives and feta cheese, accompanied with freshly baked baguette bread. For dessert we serve an original Antiguan rum cake
- An open bar of local beers, white/rosé/red wine, rum punch, sodas, juices and water as well as snacks throughout the day
