In contrast to the gentle sloping beaches of the west, Antigua’s east coast is a rich ecological gem. With it’s raw and dramatic landscapes carved out by exposure to the island’s Atlantic coast and prevailing winds, this is the wild side of Antigua. Great Bird Island lies just a couple nautical miles from the main land and is highly regarded as an island paradise, an incredible stop on your crewed catamaran charter Antigua.
Great Bird Island is the only place you can still see the Antiguan Racer in the wild, a harmless snake whose population once fell below 50. In addition to the racer, the island is home to many endangered species of bird, hence its namesake. Here you can find the West Indian Whistling Duck, the red-billed tropic bird and the brown pelican taking refuge among the lush greenery.
With several shallow bays around the island to take protection, our catamaran rests perfectly among the stunning reef that makes this island in Antigua a true tropical paradise. Come with Unplugged Yacht Charters and experience this Caribbean gem on your very own sailing catamaran charter.
