Perhaps the most popular way to spend time on the water around Antigua is by sailing and yachting. But there are other ways to get onto the high seas.
The ferry services in Antigua are not as strong as you might think for a nation that is split between two islands. Still a couple of routes do exist, and travellers will have little problems taking the Barbuda Express across the waters to the island of Barbuda.
The trip to Barbuda generally costs a little over $40 per person, and at times only run once per day. Because of this, it is best that you plan ahead and make sure you are ready before the ferry is sceduled to leave. Luckily, the docks are close to the major resorts in Jolly Harbour, and guests will have plenty to see and do if they need to kill some time waiting. Call the company at (268) 560-7989 for more information.
