Default Daylight Saving Time in Caribbean?

Does anyone know if Antigua and St. Maarten go on DST? They're both located in the Atlantic time zone ... I have a feeling they don't cuz they're closer to the Equator, but??? Did find that Puerto Rico does NOT switch to DST.

I'll be boarding April 2 so will have switched to DST for Florida and sailaway.


I cruise the Emerald Princess, Eastern Caribbean on April 16, 2012

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Oh Nut One!

I just checked World Clock and about three other places and all confirmed that Antigua does NOT observe Daylight Savings Time. They stay the same all year long.

St. Maarten: Does not observe Daylight Savings time and is on Atlantic Time Zone.

You can Google: Antigua Daylight Savings Time
To confirm it.

Take care,
