Rock n Rolla

ANTIGUA DESTINATIONS AND SCHEDULE

 
Rock n Rolla is based in English Harbour near Nelson’s Dockyard and below the fabulous Shirley Heights.
We usually pick up and drop off our guests at the Antigua Slipway fuel dock.
There is ample parking or taxi drop off near dock and a delightful French cafe ” La Brasserie ” on the same dock where you can start or finish your charter with delicious French specialities. We recommend meeting there.
When boarding we will show you around the boat after a short sanitising process and give a safety briefing. We have lifejackets for adults and children but not babies ( though they are welcome ) There is a toilet and freshwater shower along with a cabin to change in and to keep your personal items. Please bring your own towels to minimise germ transmission. 
 
We can also pick up and drop off elsewhere by arrangement but ” the clock starts ticking ” when we leave English Harbour ! 
 
Destinations and time at sea along with the weather forecast will affect where you can go in the time you have chartered Rock n Rolla. Distances and time from Sipway Dock, English Harbour to destination mooring or anchorage. 
You can combine destinations within your time booked to fill out your day.
