*Worried about taxis or missing you ship ? Taxis are easily available and serve cruise ships throughout the season. We and the taxi drivers know the importance of punctuality. In our 10 years of experience this has never been a problem.
JABBERWOCKY operates from Jolly Harbour Marina which is easily accessible by taxi from the cruise ship dock. The taxi journey takes less than 30 minutes and starting and finishing at Jolly Harbour provides access to the best sailing areas, calm seas with views across spectacular turquoise coloured water to the verdant green hills of the south west coast of Antigua. The itinerary takes you past some of the famous beaches of Antigua and a short way along the southern coast to Carlisle Bay. Anchoring in pristine water swim and snorkel directly from the yacht (all equipment provided) – A nearby underwater rocky ledge offers the chance to see plenty of different fish and maybe a stingray or two together with samples of different types of coral. For those that prefer, just sit on deck relax and enjoy the view with a cooling drink in hand and maybe spot a surfacing turtle.
Once back on board enjoy a freshly prepared lunch and relax as we make our way back to Jolly Harbour in time for your taxi back to the cruise ship.
If you are going to choose a private boat trip for one of the days during your cruise this would be the perfect place, day and yacht on which to do it.
