Antigua Yacht Charter


Sunsail’s base at Nelson’s Dockyard in Antigua, is the perfect starting point for an Antigua bareboat sailing vacation, taking in Antigua and Barbuda – the two neighboring islands that together make up the nation of Antigua. 

A yacht charter here offers a blend of blue water sailing and short hops from bay to bay in warm, steady trade winds.

Antigua combines lovely beaches and spectacular bird and wildlife with some serious nightlife. Lush Barbuda is more tranquil, with pink coral sands and the chance to snorkel over colorful coral reefs and search for eagle and sting rays.

Antigua Race Week, one of the world’s biggest sailing events, is renowned for world-class racing and all-night partying and takes place towards the end of April / beginning of May each year.
