If it's SAILING, it's MIRAMAR!
If you are looking to break away from the crowds and set your own agenda, whether for a day or longer, Miramar Sailing provides the perfect solution. We offer private, exclusive, informal and relaxed Day and Holiday Sailing cruises from the beautiful Caribbean island of Antigua. A cruise on either of our yachts will ensure that your holiday experience is one you will never forget!
From our base in Antigua we work with each of our guests to develop an individual itinerary to suit your needs, including mouth watering menu, a choice of drinks, cruising locations, snorkeling spots, and any activities or stops you may want to include in your cruise.
Antigua offers sandy, palm lined beaches with warm, blue water and calm surf breaks that present snorkelling, diving and fishing opportunities found only in a few special places around the globe.
Our Day Sailing options are catered for with our 47ft ketch "Hawnalea", and our Sailing Holidays are aboard either our 40ft. Beneteau Oceanis “Miramar”
or our 40ft. Jeanneau Sun Odyssey "Danae". Either will sail you off on a “Holiday to Remember”. Our ethos is “arrive as guests, leave as friends”, and our catchphrase is “Miramar Made my Day”! We guarantee you will not be disappointed whichever sailing experience you choose!

Your crew for your holiday on board "Miramar" or "Danae" will be either Brian or Pippa, or both!. They are the founders of Miramar Sailing who brought the Company to where it is today. Their love of sailing and the Caribbean, combined with their desire to introduce both to as many people as possible, has impacted on so many people, some of whom have gone on to buy their own yacht.
Both are equally well qualified as UK Royal Yachting Association Ocean Yachtmasters, as well as RYA Cruising & Shorebased Instructors.They have sailed over 100,000 miles between them across most of the oceans of the world.
Their attention to the safety of their guests and their yachts is paramount and will always be. They are true sailors with the knowledge and experience to carry you safely to wherever you want to go!
