Watersports are very popular in Antigua and many resorts and beaches offer a wide range of different activities including windsurfing, water skiing, sailing and paragliding. Boats can be chartered privately or you can join one of several excursions which sail round the island on either half or full day trips. There is a trip to suit everyone’s preferences – the young at heart can take a journey on the Jolly Roger and enjoy a ‘traditional’ pirate wedding as well as walking the plank and plenty of rum punch!

Sit back and relax as the professional crew of Ivy take you on a voyage of discovery. All in the comfort of your very own 48ft private sailing yacht. Alternatively, help the skipper hoist the sail and try your hand at the helm of Antigua' friendliest private charter vessel. Based in Falmouth Harbour, we offer Full Day, Half Day and Sunset Cruises to all of Antigua's most beautiful locations. Sail to the deserted beaches of Green Island, snorkel off Rendevous Bay or come aboard and visit Nelson's Dockyard from a new perspective.

Other activities on the Island include horse-riding, which can be organised through the Spring Hill Riding Club, situated in Turtle Bay, just 5 minutes from the house and deep-sea fishing which can be arranged through a number of outlets in English Harbour and St Johns.

Shirley Heights is one of the most popular excursions in Antigua. Each Sunday tourists and locals alike make the trek up the hill to one of the highest points on the island. At the top, a large wooden sheltered area provides a barbecue serving traditional grilled and some local delicacies, (such as blackened flying fish).

A lively, Caribbean band play throughout the day and as the sun goes down the rum-punch flows ever more freely and revelry is actively encouraged! Join in the dancing and limbo, or just enjoy your dinner overlooking the night- lights across the south of the island, every first time visitor to Antigua must try this once! The National Geographic Traveler quotes: “Sundays...the place to be”
