Silversea Expedition Cruises To Barbuda

Barbuda

Barbuda makes up half the name of the country of Antigua and Barbuda, but it is smaller and less known than its partner island. Barbuda is a low limestone island with shallow lagoons, coral reefs and sandy beaches like reef-lined Spanish Point and North Beach. Some beaches have a slight pink hue. Barbuda was devastated by Hurricane Irma in 2017, with 95% of the buildings destroyed. All 1600 residents were evacuated to Antigua afterwards but returned to rebuild the only village on the island, Codrington. View more

The village was founded by two British brothers of that name who brought African enslaved people to the island. Many were born on the island and “exported” to Antigua. Several rebellions occurred, and secure lockups were built around the island for runaways. Freedom arrived in 1834. The Caribbean may be known for its pirates but the most elegant and effective pirates at Barbuda are the Magnificent Frigatebirds. These large long-winged fork-tailed birds harass other flying seabirds until they regurgitate recently caught fish. The frigatebirds then snatch a free meal in an act of ‘aerial piracy’. You can visit the nesting colony in the Magnificent Frigate Sanctuary at Codrington Lagoon, which boast the largest nesting colony (with an estimated 100,000 birds) in the western hemisphere .These magnificent birds travel between the Caribbean and Galapagos islands during the varying mating seasons. You may see males on low mangroves inflating red balloon-like throat pouches to attract females.

Excursions in Barbuda

Bird Sanctuary

Known as a bird lover's paradise, Barbuda is home to the largest Frigate bird sanctuary in the Western Hemisphere. Here you will find over 2500 of these blood-red inflating throat pouching birds nestled in the thick mangroves.

During this 2-hour visit, you will also have a chance to see pelicans, terns, gulls and endemic critters like the tropical mocking bird. Most noticeable is the native Christmas bird with its bright yellow breast along with the loud noises of the endangered West Indian whistling tree duck.

Return to the pier where a bus will take you for a short ride back to the ship.
