Excellence Catamaran to Barbuda: Enjoy a 90 min sea voyage with all that cruising has to offer. Allow the ‘Excellence’ to take you across to Barbuda, whilst you take in the vistas of the ocean, relaxing back with a cool drink of your choice.
Seeing Barbuda by boat is the best way to enjoy the nature island and its beaches. We cruise up along Low Bay, a 17 mile beach, where in season, turtle tracks will be visible, as some species may return every two weeks or so to lay up to 30 nests of 300 eggs.
At Low Bay, the Excellence will come up on the beach, and lower a beach ladder to allow disembarkation. At this point you are free to bask in the warm turquoise water or come with the group across to "Codrington Lagoon". Here Barbudan guides will be waiting with their small boats to whisk you across the lagoon and into the heart of the mangroves to see the world’s largest Frigate bird colony.
You will get very close to these huge birds and the Barbudan guides will enchant you with their local knowledge and observations of the life of the “Man ‘O’ War” bird, and maybe entice you to hold a jelly fish in this natural haven.
Once back to the beach a delicious Caribbean style lunch will have been prepared by the crew on board the Excellence. After lunch work on your Golden suntan. Swim in the warm water and allow your mind to drift away in this idyllic paradise.
