Antigua Catamaran | Activities and Excursions
If you are looking for enchanting landscapes, a crystal clear sea and lots of relaxation off the usual routes, Antigua by catamaran is the island for you. One of the smallest to have been independent (as large as the Island of Elba), however, it has focused on elite tourism, managing to build modern infrastructures in an unspoiled natural context. The marinas of Jolly Harbor, English Harbor, Falmouth, with luxurious yacht clubs, offer all the staging facilities and a range of world-class shops, bars and restaurants. You arrive at the airport in St. John, the small capital of 22 thousand inhabitants and after a few kilometers you arrive at Jolly Harbor, the modern marina that is the base for the Antigua catamaran cruise. Our local charter operators have at their disposal 10 brand new catamarans to choose from between Bali, Lagoon and Fountain Pajot, ranging in size from 42 to 62 feet. From here, a holiday begins that is also adventure, discovery of enchanting places and navigation in dream places. The south coast is very indented: small well protected bays in which to stop, then swim, snorkel or simply enjoy the landscape while sipping a cocktail. The beaches are many and all of a very fine white or golden sand. Coconut palms, changing colors of the water and vast areas of reef to plumb the colorful marine fauna and flora. For diving lovers, Deep Bay is a must, where you can visit the wreck of a cargo sunk in the early 1900s, lying on the shallows of a dream bay. You can opt for the complete catamaran available for you and your families, or request the presence of a local skipper. The Antigua luxury catamaran holiday formula is the top of the range and allows you to have on board not only the professional skipper, but also the hostesses and the cook. A choice of aperitifs, dinners, grilled on the beach, with fresh local fish to be the master: seafood, crustaceans, marlin and yellow fin tuna. For those who want to relax, in addition to the suggestive beaches, the local flora is deserving: botanical gardens and parks in the hinterland allow walking and hiking. The local culture is very rich: craft shops in St. John and in small villages, marine art, textiles and rum workshops. The capital has many museums and a beautiful cathedral. And then Creole cuisine, tasty tropical fruits, rum cocktails. Music, colors and flavors of a society linked to traditions and welcoming. Catamaran Antigua also means a sailing holiday: you can reach the largest Guadeloupe and wild Dominica to the south, go north to the British Virgin Islands and St. Kitts and Nevis, opt for the short trip to Barbuda. Here time has stood still since that damn 2017 when a hurricane destroyed 95% of the small island's infrastructure. It remains an uninhabited marine oasis, a place out of this world, where you can enjoy every moment in the hope that it will recover the population.
