We are going to be on Antigua in early September and I have two questions I can't seem to find good answers to:
1) What's the best way to get to Bird Island? Our perfect way would be a water taxi with pick up / drop off like seems to exist for Green Island, or Kleiner Bonaire if you've ever been there. The only options I've been able to find are guided tours with a brief stop at Bird Island, or expensive private charters (couple hundred bucks would be fine, but 500+ for the two of us it out of price range.)
2) Is there anywhere that has older, manual transmission cars to rent? We really enjoy Samurias, Jimnys, etc -- All the micro utility vehicles so common in the Carribean but rare/not imported into the U.S. Titi's has one but it is apparently booked for the week we are there.
