When is the best time of year to charter a yacht in the Antigua?

Winter is the time when sunseekers take their luxury yacht charter to Antigua, fleeing cooler climates to enjoy the tropical “winter” of mid 20-30°C, running from November to March. 

Throughout the season, Antigua is bustling with visitors. Shops, restaurants and bars are busy, beautiful golden bodies are sprawled along the beaches, and the nightlife is electric. At its height, in December and January, the streets are packed, marinas and full, and superyachts drop anchor all around the island. 

What’s great about a boat charter to Antigua is the short peak season – just December and January. That makes November, February and March shoulder months where the weather is still beautiful, and the charter prices drop significantly.
