2 day, overnight tour – ready to explore Barbuda by private sailing yacht?
A private, overnight sailing trip – tailored just for you.
Why not take a two-day, private sailing charter with a great Skipper to the beautiful island of Barbuda. Set sail from our base in Jolly Harbour on your first day and experience a wonderful sail along the coast west of Antigua and on to Barbuda. The sail takes around 5 hours; if you are lucky, you may see turtles, dolphins or even whales on your trip!
Barbuda is simply stunning – a ‘Robinson Crusoe’ coral island with a population of just 1,300 people. You will anchor at one of two beautiful beaches. Low Bay boasts 11 miles of unbroken pink/white sand beach and Cocopoint is to the south with a white, powdery sandy beach – both ideal for beach-combing.

When you are safely at anchor, the day is yours! A perfect time to dive into the crystal clear water and cool off, or perhaps take a guided tour to the peaceful frigate bird sanctuary in the large lagoon behind the bay. There is also great snorkelling and your Skipper will show you the best spots.

Starting from our base in Jolly Harbour Marina, you will step on board at 10am on your first day. There is a large supermarket right here so you can pick up everything you will need for your trip. There is a full galley on board: refrigerator, stove, coffee maker – a home from home! Alternatively, send us your shopping list and we will make sure everything is stowed on board for your arrival. Your Skipper will advise you on what to bring and where to stow.
We have a fleet of 14 yachts and Catamarans to choose from (subject to availability) – depending on how many people you will be on your tour, and how many cabins you will need, we will recommend the most suitable yachts for you.
What do you need to bring?
Bring along your swimwear, sunglasses, sunscreen, hat and a change of clothes – that’s it! We provide all linens and towels on board. Your snorkel equipment is also provided, plus a hammock and swim noodles.

There is a charcoal BBQ on board so that you can cook on board and dine under the stars for your first night dinner. Watch a wonderful sunset from your yacht whilst you sip a rum cocktail!

Next morning, we lift the anchor and sail to Coco Point on the south of Barbuda for more exploring, swimming, relaxing; the choice is yours. You then have another great sail back to Antigua! Your 2 day, private tour will finish at 4pm on day 2 in Jolly Harbour Marina.
This trip offers a great way to see Antigua’s coastline and Barbuda’s natural beauty, plus it gives you a flavour of life on board your very own private yacht.
Of course, we can sail where the wind takes us, so if you wanted to explore the North Sound area of Antigua, or perhaps stay closer to home on the west coast, we would be more than happy to set sail with you!
