SAILING AND DIVING IN ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA

Sailing and diving around Antigua and Barbuda February 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?

Join us for a 10 day adventure around the beautiful islands of Antigua and Barbuda in February and March 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. We have compressor on board, which leaves lots of flexibility for scheduling dives. 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. 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.

Boat is also equipped for paddle boarding, snorkelling and fishing, 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

Antigua and Barbuda are full of culture mixed by Caribbean, African, Spanish and English influences. It has wonderful towns and nature explore, both food, and music to discover as well as warm and welcoming locals and spectacular scenery. For a combination of a perfect holiday, Antigua and Barbuda has a lot to offer!

Our initial itinerary will include trip around the islands of Antigua, Barbuda and potential stops on islands near by*

One of my best 2 weeks of sailing - Ever!

Joining Fabian (aka Knaii) and Jannika on board Sirius I was immediately made to feel welcome. He was always calm and relaxed, despite some of the challenges that he faced with the logistics of picking up and dropping of crew that were not on board for the full duration of the trip. Fabian has an incredible wealth of sailing experience, and was happy to patiently share this with the rest of us. He's also an excellent cook, the two of us even managed to make fish & chips for five on the boat! I learnt a huge amount during my time with Fabian, not least boat maintenance, had loads of fun with him, Jannika and the rest of the crew, and most of all, made a new friend. Thank You Fabian, I hope our plans to sail again together either later this year or early next work out. In the meantime, safe travels!

Knaii is a very good skipper. He is always have safety in mind and he can manage a team with respect and kindness for each of his crew members. He will take the decision which suit best for every situation, and keep calm in all conditions. He is also an excellent teacher! He have a huge knowledge of navigation, cruising,weatherforcast... which he likes to share. He always explained me the things quietly and clearly so that I learned very fast! He also trusted me and let me do the manover on my one, being on my side if I needed help. I really enjoyed he's art of teaching. Last but not least, he's an amazing cook who enjoys to prepare delicious and creative dinner with fresh and local products! I had an amazing time sailing with him and hope to sail again!
