The meeting point for the boat tours is on the beach close to the iconic red phone box by Siboney Bay Beach Club. A complimentary shuttle boat will take you out to Kon-Tiki, a floating bar with thatched roof - and the place to board the bbq boat.

Choose whether to indulge in a pre-sail tipple and soak up the views from the bar with its party-like vibe...


...  or climb straight onboard the cheerfully coloured orange and white barbecue boat and prepare to set sail.


Once onboard, cold drinks are offered - soft drinks, wine or beer as the bbq heats up.

Relax while your Captain sails around the picturesque bay framed by white sand. The water is mostly calm apart from occasional ripples made by passing jet skis. Watch pelicans dive for fish before gliding high into the hillside to their nests while enjoying the warmth of the Antiguan sunshine and it's cooling tropical breeze.
