Wed 11th OCT

I don't have all of my staff on the site at the moment and will have to update that later. David Mendes seen here on the left having some fun while on a private charter in Barbuda, is now working full time with us. He will be here in Antigua until Jan 2007 when he goes off to study medicine. Growing up here in Antigua spending all his free time on boats, he is perfect for the job. This guy loves the water sooo much that even on his days off he goes out fishing, snorkeling, kitesurfing or surfing.
We have both boats on tours tomorrow but there is a fairly active tropical wave to our east that we are looking at. For good weather info and forecasts a simple site to goto for Antigua is Windguru. If what they are saying is correct, then i will have to cancel both of my trips tomorrow which sucks!!! The satellite imagery looks bad too. We have had such awesome weather this summer so far........the "H" season is almost over too thank god. Usually when we cancel a tour because of weather we can only rebook 50% of the people and of course if its a cruise ship day then we don't get a second chance. Of course, we credit all deposits that we have taken, and try our hardest to re-schedule. I usually encourage people to book early in their trips so that we can reschedule if we have to. We'll see about tomorrow.
