CAptain’s Mate of the Month – Deep Bay, Antigua

As colder weather sets in to the northern Hemisphere, we are steering south to the inviting warmth of Antigua, showcasing Deep Bay as December’s CAptain’s Mate of the Month.

A hugely popular destination, Antigua offers plenty of mooring options around the island. Deep Bay on the north-western side of the island is an inviting and stunning anchorage. An excellent bay for overnight stops, the sand offers good holding and the gently shelving beach is wonderful for swimming.
