Sample Itineraries
Carlisle Bay is on the southern coast of the island within easy sailing of English Harbour or Jolly Harbour.

JABBERWOCKY anchors in beautiful clear water and you can swim directly from the back of the yacht, snorkel on a well stocked reef, relax in the sun or in shade under the bimini and watch for Hawksbill Turtles as they surface

Deep Bay is on the calmer west coast the island in easy reach of Jolly Harbour and the hotels on the western coast of Antigua.

The bay offers a sheltered anchorage, a long beach, and the opportunity to snorkel on an 1905 wreck or to take a short hike up to Fort Barrington

Jumby Bay is off the slightly more exposed north eastern coast of Antigua accessible from Jolly Harbour and hotels on the western coast. On the way you can see the whole of the northern coast before anchoring off the 5 star Jumby Hotel. In pristine clear waters you can swim and relax whilst lunch is prepared before an exhilarating downwind sail back to your destination

Overnight or three day trips
For those lucky enough to have the chance, a two or three day charter aboard JABBERWOCKY offers a wider scope for exploration and adventure

Two Days
Green Island lies just off the south eastern coast of Antigua at the entrance to Nonsuch Bay. Starting from the historic setting of Nelson’s Dockyard in English Harbour an adrenaline charged sail upwind brings you to the shelter of Green Island and its adjacent reef. Anchored in calm water inside the reef you can look out eastwards into the Atlantic knowing that nothing lies between you and Africa

Swim and snorkel from the yacht or ride in the dinghy across to Green Island with its reefs and beaches. As dinner is served watch a myriad of stars appear in a night sky clear of artificial light.

Next morning after breakfast and perhaps another swim or snorkel enjoy an exhilarating downwind sail back to English Harbour

Great Bird Island lies off the north western coast of Antigua and offers superb snorkelling swimming or just relaxing. Starting from English Harbour or Jolly Harbour JABBERWOCKY sails clockwise north and then east around the northern coast of Antigua to the reef strewn area south of Jumby Bay. As the afternoon draws on the area becomes quieter leaving the reef and island for your undisturbed pleasure.

After sunset enjoy the freshly prepared dinner whilst watching the lights of Antigua in the distance

Three days

This opens up various options including an extension of the itineraries around Antigua or a open sea passage to another island

Guadeloupe which is a French colony lies 45 miles south of Antigua and offers 6 or 7 hours sailing trip in each direction with a day ashore in between.

On the first day departing from the historic Nelson’s Dockyard in English Harbour (after clearing customs and immigration) to enjoy an open sea passage to Deshailes on the north western coast of Guadaloupe arriving in time for a visit ashore to sample the French ambiance.

On the second day (whilst the Captain deals with customs and immigration matters) hire a car or take a taxi trip into the mountains to walk through the rain forests to waterfalls or enjoy the French influence in the Caribbean and dine ashore.

On the third day after fresh breakfast a sail back to English Harbour in time to deal with customs and immigration and disembark at about 4.30pm

Barbuda lies 25 miles north of Antigua (being only 115 feet at its highest point) and offers reefs and deserted beaches.

Starting from Jolly Harbour we sail north along the western coast of Antigua and then across open sea to reach Barbuda by about 3 pm and a chance for a late afternoon swim or snorkel.

Enjoy a freshly prepared dinner under a starlit night sky unspoilt by artificial light. After breakfast enjoy a day of swimming and snorkelling or going ashore to explore the northern parts of the island by taxi or to enjoy the mile long beaches.

On day three after a leisurely breakfast and perhaps a quick final swim, sail back to English Harbour to arrive back at about 4.30pm

Term Charter

Booking a week opens up your options still further, whether a relaxed week around Antigua and Barbuda or further afield –

North to Barbuda, on to “smart” St. Barts, or up to St Martin (a split French/Dutch colony with duty free shopping)


South to Guadeloupe, the Saints, on to “the nature island” of Dominica.
