AIRPORT TAXIS

If you are stationed in Nelson’s Dockyard, at Falmouth Harbour Marina or at Antigua Yacht Club Marina you will be able to walk around the main bars and restaurants in the area and to the other marinas. You can also travel by RIB and moor up at various available jetties including at the Catamaran Marina on the north side of Falmouth Harbour.

CAR RENTAL

Pineapple Rentals of Jolly Harbour is Antigua Sailing Week’s official car rental partner.  There are a number of other good car rental companies based in English Harbour and around the island and many that operate out of the the airport.  Rates vary depending upon the vehicle rented and the length of rental.  Advance bookings are recommended, especially during peak times such as Antigua Sailing Week.
