Circumnavigation Antigua: On Board the Excellence Catamaran

January 21, 2012

All aboard the Excellence! At first I wasn’t so sure. The weather was poor and I was having flashbacks from a cold and bumpy boat ride in the Greek Islands. But soon the clouds cleared and the sun came out. The scenery was beautiful and I got a sweet spot on the netting at the front of the catamaran. And then we arrived along the Atlantic side of the island. The best part of the trip.  The waves were so-much-fun! Dave and I stood at the front of the boat while the rest of the passengers cowered under cover. We got soaked!

We stopped at Green Island for snorkelling and lunch and then continued west around the island back to St. Johns. We toured through Nelson’s Dockyard and got to see the cliff formations from the ocean. We ogled all the million dollar celebrity owned mansions. Turns out the money isn’t just in the marina. And finally we were let off in St. Johns, finishing off the tour the way it had started – rain! It’s just too bad all the water splashing around reduced the effectiveness of my spf-8 sunscreen. Ouch!
