Horizon Yacht Charters full-service base location – just for you!

Where else is better to start your charter from than right here in the blissful marina of Jolly Harbor with Horizon Yacht Charters!
The Horizon Office in Jolly Harbor
The Horizon Yacht Charters base is located in the idealistic place called Jolly Harbor. The office is a two minute walk away from all of our yachts so we are never far away and it makes it a lot easier when carrying the luggage down to your chartered boat! Jolly Harbor is also where you will find everything you need to start your sailing vacation, from a supermarket open until 9pm where you can collect your goodies, to a beach front restaurant where you can tip your toes in the ocean whilst sipping on a ice cold beverage.

All of the Horizon Yacht Charters boats are moored right on the doorstep of the amenities that Jolly Harbor Marina has to offer allowing you direct access to all of the bars and restaurants, supermarket and customs offices making your life a whole lot easier. The supermarket is located right across the street from your Horizon boat allowing you to walk around the store with ease, without worrying about getting it all back to the boat as the guys from the store are more than happy to bring your shopping straight to the boat for you for a low amount of US$2! Fill up on the delicious Creole cuisine Antigua has to offer without any stresses!

The supermarket is just a 2 minute walk away from your Horizon yacht!
If you feel like dining ashore rather than cooking on board then you can choose from a selection of different restaurants located just a stones throw away from the Horizon office and your very own private yacht! These restaurants range from Italian to Greek to local cuisine and offer superb quality food. You will also find some great deals such as the 2-4-1 pizza on a Tuesday at Al Porto or some delicious chef specials at Melini’s. There is even the option of takeaway if you fancy a relaxed dinner on board whilst watching the world go by. Don’t forget to attend Happy Hour at West Point! West Point is home to the Jolly Harbor Yacht club which is why you will find all of the fellow yachties enjoying happy hour prices and discussing the best spots for anchoring and enjoying a good beach BBQ! They will also be organizing the next event, whether it be a fund raiser or just a fun sailing race between friends! From here you can also relax and enjoy the Caribbean atmosphere whilst admiring your very own private Horizon yacht at sunset.

Just a 5/10 minute walk away from your very own Horizon yacht is one of Antigua’s biggest beaches which boasts blue waters, a white sand beach and a fantastic beach bar and restaurant offering breakfast, lunch and dinner and of course the inevitable happy hour between 4-6! This is also where you will find all of the yachties enjoying their cocktails and local beers! Castaways is the perfect place to watch the sun go down and unwind on your Caribbean vacation.

There is also a fantastic sports bar ‘The Crows Nest’ located in Jolly Harbor along the waterfront. It’s roughly a 3 minute walk around the boulevard from the Horizon base and they play all of the sports games on their large flat screen TVs, allowing you to sit back, relax and watch the games whilst sipping on a tropical fruit smoothie! If you came on vacation to get away from the buzz of a TV then fear not as there is also a beautiful, crystal clear refreshing pool just a couple of steps away. Cool down in the pool only to climb out and sit back on one of their comfortable pool loungers and receive poolside service! The Crows nest serves breakfast, lunch and dinner too.

One of the great advantages about the Horizon Yacht Charters base being in Jolly Harbor is it is only a 25 minute taxi ride away from the airport! – The closest marina you will find, offering everything you need, all in one place! Jolly Harbor has a customs office just a few minutes away from the Horizon base in the marina. You can either take a 5/10 minute walk around from the Horizon office or you can motor your boat around for 2 minutes and then moor at the customs dock they have just outside of the office.

Jolly Harbor is located on the West coast of Antigua, so it is an ideal place to either set sail North or South of the Horizon HQ and find beautiful protected bays, perfect snorkeling spots and amazing beaches to set up your BBQ’s and still be in the lee of the island, meaning you will usually be in calm seas and gentle breezes which is perfect for the ultimate relaxing sailing vacation!

Once you have experienced fine dining, long walks on the famous Jolly Beach and topped up your provisions, you can set sail feeling calm and relaxed! The team at Horizon Yacht Charters will look forward to hearing your stories once you return and I’m sure you will still have to time enjoy that last cocktail at West Point before you jet off on your next adventure!
