Board the yacht in Falmouth Harbour on the beautiful island of Antigua. Falmouth Harbour is a stone’s throw away from the famous Nelson's Dockyard, an old British colonial naval station. Spend the afternoon exploring the dockyard with a local guide, then take a trip up the mountain to Shirley Heights for a fantastic sunset. Later, arrive at Carlisle Bay on the south western tip of the island, and enjoy the wellbeing spa and fine dining at the luxury Carlisle Bay resort.

Volcano experience

Cruise to Montserrat and anchor in Rendezvous Bay on the north-west side of the island for a day of watersports and exploring. With few visitors, this bay is pristine and free of development. Two thirds of Montserrat was engulfed in ash when the Soufriere volcano erupted in 1995, and much still remains submerged. It has been slowly coming back to life and offers a unique tranquillity and friendly locals. Visit the volcano or the partially buried city of Plymouth, the Caribbean's answer to Pompeii.
