Sailing and diving around Antigua and Barbuda in March 2021
Do you love sailing as much as you like to spend time underwater? Want to explore the Caribbean islands, enjoy the sun, learn about sailing and dive? Time to get outdoors and enjoy nature while self isolating in the best way possible, on a boat?
Join us for ten days filled with adventure around the beautiful islands of Antigua and Barbuda in February 2021!
We are setting sails on Catamaran Lagoon 42 in Antigua and will explore the islands around from the seaside, and underwater.
You will not need previous sailing experience; we welcome sailors in all levels. Skipper is happy to teach you all the tricks of tacking, gybing and sail trimming as well as secrets of navigation and passage planning. We often practice manoeuvres and different scenarios you may face when cruising.
We will change location by sail and enjoy the beautiful anchorages area has to offer. We dive every other day when the anchor is safely down. Dives are either boat dives straight dropping down from the boat or we take a dinghy to the dive site nearby. We will do mostly a dive a day and when possible according the weather conditions, we will try to do night dives as well. Having a compressor on board and filling the tanks ourselves leaves flexibility for scheduling dives! Dive sites are mostly around reefs, wrecks, walls, slopes and caves, seeing fascinating sights of marine biodiversity, sharks, sea mammals, reef fish and coral. Antigua, Barbuda and surrounding areas offer on average up to 30 meters visibility and warm water to dive in during the winter months.
Please note, diving activities are for certified divers only.
Boat is also equipped for paddle boarding, snorkelling and fishing (rods and spearguns), and there will be free time for guests to go non guided swimming, hiking, beach bumming, island exploring and not to forget simply; chilling and relaxing

It has wonderful towns and nature explore, both food, and music to discover as well as warm and welcoming locals and spectacular scenery.
