Fine Dining at one of our Yacht Charter Resort Destinations
Scenic Views of Antigua
Day 1 – Arrival.
Nelson’s Dockyard in English Harbor is a very romantic, quiet location with a lovely garden-like setting leading up to the waterfront. The whole of Nelson’s Dockyard has been beautifully reconstructed to house hotels, restaurants and small business. It is an outstanding historic monument. You haven’t been to the Caribbean until you’ve had a drink at the Admiral’s Inn in Nelson’s Dockyard.
On the beach is the famous Smiley’s Beach Bar, and another great attraction in Nevis is the Golden Rock Estate. This was built in 1815 as a sugar plantation on the edge of the rain forest. It has been run for 27 years by Pam Barry who actively encourages eco – tourism with educational hikes and tours. Some of the walks thru the rainforest are short and quite comfortable for the less energetic while others take you up to the top of Nevis.
In the late morning, we will take a slow cruise over to St. Kitts to arrive before lunch and anchor in Ballast Bay. Here you can go on a Brownies diving adventure on the hunt for Eagle Rays, Puffer fish and Blue Tangs.
After lunch we will take a quick ride in your yacht's tender and drop you all off at the Monkey Bar where your personal tour guide will take you to the Brimstone Hill Fortress and National Park. Brimstone Hill has a wonderful, old, strategically-placed fort which is a lasting monument to the old enmity between the British and the French. It has been painstakingly restored.
Basil is a great guide and has extensive knowledge about all things in St. Kitts, and we strongly recommend his services. We could also arrange for someone to follow in a second taxi.
After dinner, all the adults can go to South Friar beach by tender for the Full Moon party at the Shipwreck Bar on the south end of Friar's Bay.
A big day out!
This is the perfect day to take divers diving at Ile De La Point, where we will take you all on a guided tour through an underwater gully round, a rock face, and onto an underwater mountain which is covered with corals and has schools of fish all over it. On this adventure we will also point out the resident Nurse sharks that make this underwater mountain their home.
We weigh anchor by 1500 to make our way over to the dock where we will spend the night. Reservations will be made at the yacht club for after-dinner drinks and some partying.
You need to leave by the afternoon to arrive at Anguilla and find a suitable bay to anchor in. We will choose the best for prevailing conditions where we can spend the afternoon.
The day ends with an early dinner, and once you are back onboard, we depart for the “Fat Virgin”, Virgin Gorda, an overnight trip to the British Virgin Islands.
In the afternoon at around 1400, we will take everyone on a guided snorkeling trip to the cannons. A great spot!
Biras Creek up on the hill is an excellent spot to have a cocktail and watch the sunset; we can get there by tender.
After lunch, there will be a tender ride to the Baths, a huge formation of giant boulders that form pathways, rock pools and caverns. We will make our way through these rocks from Sprat Bay to Stingray Bay.
This is one of the most fabulous resorts with the best beaches around. Arrangements can be made for the ladies to go for massages, etc. at the health spa.
From here we need to launch the tender to take all the divers diving to the HMS Rhone, one of the most memorable dives you will ever have. In addition, in the evening at about 1800, you can dive the HMS Fearless, an old British mine sweeper covered in coral, which is not 3 minutes away from where the boat will be.
In the late afternoon we can go by tender and visit Pirates Beach bar and the Willy T.
