Join us as we cruise around the coastline of Antigua.

As the fastest 82' Power cat in Antigua, the "Excellence" gets you further from the crowds and gives you more time to enjoy the reefs and beaches!

Your cruise with us begins, as we pick you up from your hotel (or from St. John's if you are on a cruise-ship). We then pick up some speed as we head in a northeastern direction around the island.

The experienced crew and Captain will point out picturesque spots including; Bird Island, Green Island and on the Atlantic side... well known "Devil's Bridge".

The layout of this luxury catamaran is comfortable and inviting. With plenty of deck area both inside and outside. You can choose to relax in the sun or shade. If you want to lay on the front deck, that's ok. You may get splashed a bit by the water... but it's all part of the fun!

Inside is a full bar. We are delighted to serve you a variety of beverages including; fruit punch, soft drinks, water, rum punch and juice.

You're sure to capture many stunning photographs on this full day tour. Being on the water can be both exciting and relaxing. As we anchor on the shore of a secluded island, off the mainland. You can safely make your way onto the beach.

Take time to observe nature up close. The waters around Antigua are home to many rare and colorful species of fish and coral.

Enjoy snorkeling, swimming and sun-bathing. There is something for everyone. Our first-class crew will even serve you a cool beverage right on the beach. Sit back and relax. We will take care of everything.

When you have had enough sun, you are welcome back onboard for lunch. We serve you a Choice of Chicken breast or Steamed fish on our BBQ grill with delicious side dishes, a choice for vegetarians on request .What could be better than an tasty lunch in a tropical paradise. Sun, sea and sand in all directions.

As we head down the southern coastline. You will be amazed at the magnificent cliff formations - which have been carved by the sea over a millennium. The "pillars of hercules" are particularly unique.

See the natural beauty our island paradise has to offer aboard the "Excellence". Rhythmic island music accompanies your day with us. Make a reservation today....


Cruise with us to the secluded sister island, Barbuda:

This passage is about 28 miles.

It will take about an hour and fifteen minutes to cross to our Sister Island Barbuda aboard the "Excellence". Seeing Barbuda by boat is the best way to enjoy this nature island and its beaches. We cruise up the 17-mile beach named Low Bay, where in-season, turtle tracks will be visible as some species may return every two weeks or so - to lay up to 30 nests of 300 eggs.

At Low Bay, the "Excellence" will come up on the beach. And, a ladder will be lowered. At this point you are free to bask in the water or come with the group across to the "Codrington Lagoon" where the Barbudan guides will be waiting with their small boats. With about 10 people in each boat we are whisked across the lagoon and into the heart of the mangroves to the world’s largest Frigate bird colony.

We can get very close to these huge birds and the Barbudan guides will enchant you with their local knowledge and observations of the lives of the “Man ‘O’ War” bird, perhaps entice you to hold a jelly fish in this natural haven.

Something you don't want to miss!

We return to the "Excellence" and choices of lunch featuring barbeque chicken breast, and steamed Snapper filled will be served onboard. Come and enjoy this beautiful beach for a swim and work on your golden tan or play a game of take a romantic stroll and let your feet sink in this amazing sand.
