Catamaran Braveheart is available for charter in the British Virgin Islands year round, along with the Leeward Islands and the Grenadines in summer months. Here is a sample itinerary for a charter in the Leewards out of Antigua:
The true potential of Antigua as a chartering venue has never been fully appreciated. With beautiful anchorages amongst 365 beaches, which Antigua is widely known for, and the nearby island of Barbuda, a natural bird sanctuary, you will be sure of a vacation in paradise.
Day 1 - Your voyage begins at the historic English Harbour, once the main anchorage in Nelson's time for the British West Indies squadron. With a display of magnificent yachts, and an active social scene of restaurants, it will easily get you into the holiday mood. A Sunday visit to the famous Shirley Heights Lookout Bar & Restaurant & BBQ where a steel band plays till sunset is a must. With a local reggae band you will dance the night away with the best panoramic views to add to your postcard of memories.
Day 2 - Downwind sail out of English Harbour to Carlisle Bay, a palm lined white sandy beach. After a swim and leisurely lunch set the sails towards Cades reef, sailing in crystal clear shallow waters. Then sail further up the west coast to anchor at Five Islands Bay, where there is no sign of habitation and un-spoilt beaches. Further on is Deep Bay where the Andes wreck lies which is an exciting snorkeling spot. Enjoy a tranquil evening aboard Braveheart or revel away the night at the Royal Antiguan Casino Hotel, dancing and enjoying the music.
Day 3 - Sailing along the west into Dickinson Bay is a perfect place to partake in the variety of water sports Braveheart has available like windsurfing, kayaking, water-skiing, wakeboarding and tubing, With a choice of restaurants lunch can be taken ashore in the shade of a palm covered beach restaurant. Return to Braveheart for cocktails watching a breathtaking sunset.
Day 4/5 - With a steady wind on the beam Braveheart sails out into the open waters to the island of Barbuda. An island dedicated to the heart of nature and is heaven on earth. In 1691 the Codrington family leased the island from Britain for one fat sheep and imported slaves. The shores offer unique snorkeling with living brown coral. Home to a natural bird sanctuary Barbuda has an unusually large frigate bird colony. There are endless pale pink beaches some stretching 11 miles. A stop over of 2 nights is recommended to do this wonderful island justice.
Day 6 - With a reach back down the east coast Braveheart arrives at Green Island, anchoring in the solitude of Rickett Harbour, an exclusive bay. You are encouraged to take a dinghy ride and explore Nonsuch bay, or relax under the shade of a palm tree in the Garden of Eden, surely one of the most idyllic beaches in all the Caribbean.
Day 7 - Braveheart returns you to English Harbour on a journey you wont forget with wonderful memories.
Every anchorage in Antigua and Barbuda is characterized by beautiful clear waters and beaches. This island jewel, set in the heart of the Caribbean, fulfills the image of a perfect tropical paradise. Seven days is barely sufficient to enjoy the multitude of things to do and places to see. We look forwards to you joining us for the ideal charter vacation of your life on board the catamaran Braveheart.
