Water Activities in Antigua and Barbuda

Ever since  the British, under Horatio Nelson, made their Caribbean base in English Harbour, sailing has been an integral part of Antigua’s culture. Over the centuries there have been many changes but the marine tradition of Antigua remains. Today, the stately Georgian architecture of Nelson’s Dockyard is witness to an array of recreational yachts, international sailing boats and the classic sailboats during Antigua’s annual Sailing Week. Of course with such a rich marine tradition it is natural that all sorts of boats, for all sorts of purposes can be hired in Antigua.

SCUBA DIVING

Antigua & Barbuda has hundreds of wrecks to explore and good shelf diving.  You can arrange for diving equipment through your hotel or guest house or check out the following diving centres.


Antigua Yacht Club Marina


The Antigua Scuba Centre is friendly little dive centre operating out of English Harbour on the beautiful south coast of Antigua.  Antigua’s south coast is quite rugged: rocky cliffs plunge straight down into the ocean and that means…GREAT DIVING with drop offs and mini walls galore.  The favourable underwater landscape is only the beginning, the coral encrusted wall and jumbles of boulders that you will see create a myriad of hiding places for all types of Caribbean reef fish which congregate in numbers! Larger marine life such as turtles, stingrays, barracuda, jacks, permit, nurse sharks and morays are regularly seen here.  South Antigua’s abundant marine life is truly one of the diving worlds little surprises.
