TRANSFER OPTIONS

Transfers

Jumby Bay provides transfers between the mainland airport and Jumby Bay Island. Upon arrival, a chauffeured private car conveys guests on a three-minute drive to the resort's dock where they receive a warm Jumby Bay welcome from a resort representative. From this point, guests need not lift a finger - their baggage will be waiting for them in their guestroom, suite, villa or estate home. Two experienced crew members will assist guests onto the resort's private catamaran for a seven-minute ride over to Jumby Bay, through clear Caribbean waters.

Adults: USD75 per person, round-trip

Children two to 12 years old: USD37.50 per child, round-trip (for children under two years old the transfer is complimentary)

Airport transfer fees for guests arriving via private plane are available upon request.

Traveling Around Antigua

Rental cars are abundant throughout Antigua. Valid national and local licenses are required. The latter may be obtained at a police station for a nominal charge of USD20. Be aware that driving is on the left-hand side and most of the island roadways are not paved. Antigua's roads are notorious for potholes and poor signage and shoulders. Antigua's bus transportation can be quite an adventure. Bus schedules may be erratic and limited in destinations. Taxis are the easiest way to venture around Antigua and all taxi drivers are qualified tour guides.
