Azure Waters meet iconic shores that wrote the pages of history

To best enjoy the areas once traveled by Nelson, and to best discover the enchanting coral reefs which historically troubled enemy ships, you'll want to be on board a charter yacht. What's more, as the winter home of A-list stars like Giorgio Armani and Oprah, an Antigua yacht charter offers access to some of the Caribbean’s most exclusive resorts, nested in a myriad of bays and inlets.
Reasons to Visit
Speak to your Charter Broker
Situated in the West Indies, Antigua is one of the defining jewels in the Leeward Islands of the Caribbean. Home to the largest English-speaking community in the East Caribbean, the Montserrat islands are found south of Antigua, and to the west are the hotspots of St. Kitts, St. Barts, St. Martin and the uninhabited coral island of Barbuda. Antigua enjoys a Caribbean climate, complemented by steady winds that make it one of the world’s best sailing destinations.
Interestingly, Antigua’s harbour and surrounding coral reefs were once the Caribbean headquarters for the British Royal Navy in the 18th century, and their most famous admiral, Horatio Nelson. Thanks to such a commanding place in history, Antigua’s Jolly Harbour remains a preferred haven for those seeking an idyllic yacht charter in paradise.
Surrounded by the finest restaurants and boutique shops, the marina is the perfect introduction to the island before exploring its natural beauty and heritage sites. Travel to Nelson’s Dockyard National Park to see the most iconic landmark of the Antigua’s great history. Perfectly restored to its 18th century glory, it is the only remaining Georgian dockyard in the world.
The island’s capital city St. John’s is the largest in Antigua, and is home to the architectural wonder of the Baroque-style St. John’s Cathedral, built with distinct towers that dominate the surrounding landscape. A vibrant city which offers exceptional shopping and fine dining experiences, a visit to St. John’s is a must on your charter vacation.
What's more, legend has it that Antigua is home to as many beaches as there are days in a year, meaning that a yacht charter vacation in Antigua will offer more than enough adventure to keep you fully satisfied.
