Private Sailing Adventures for up to six passengers! Prepare yourself for an exhilarating day on the Caribbean Sea in the East End Marine Park Sanctuary. Our 36 ft. Sailing sloop has a large shaded cockpit, a clean marine bathroom, and a well-outfitted galley. There's also a custom-built swim platform with a deep ladder so that you can easily get in and out of the water. Sail as much or as little as you like, and even take the helm yourself or just relax and unwind. We'll swim with sting rays and snorkel the barrier reef where we'll guide you to the very best coral reef habitats. This sailing excursion is perfect for couples, families, a group of friends, or small company outings. You'll love the experience of chartering a sailboat and it will undoubtedly be the best part of your vacation on St. Croix!

Book us for special occasions!!

A long overdue review, but one that comes with time to reflect on what was our family's favorite activity on St Croix. We are a family of four from landlocked Colorado, three of whom had never set foot on a sailboat. We had the pleasure of joining Captain Dee and 1st Mate Dave on Zulu just before Christmas 2016 during... More

We did a full day sail to Buck Island and also around the North end of St.Croix which included fantastic guided snorkeling and excellent snack and lunch provided on board. Captain Dee and her first Mate John were fantastic hosts, and provided a sailing memory we will never forget. We would recommend this crew to anyone that would like a... More

Scott appreciate the review but we only sailed to the west end of Buck island and never stopped. Our boat is not permitted to anchor or snorkel the waters inside the boundaries of Buck Island! The National Park officials of St. Croix determined many years ago that only larger boating companies were to get leases. We on the other hand... More

After murky snorkeling on our first day, we were thrilled that Captain Dee and her First Mate Dave were able to deliver us to clear waters, beautiful corals, and impressive rays. Their know-how and experience with St. Croix's reefs was essential to finding fun snorkeling spots that really helped kick-start our vacation! Not only was the snorkeling great, but the... More

We had fun and many laughs with you and your family! Thanks for the wonderful review. It's always a plus to get out away from the shoreline and onto a boat for clear conditions.

We sailed last week with Captain Dee and First Mate Dave. It was a great sail. We have visited St. Croix multiple times and have sailed with Dee on Zulu every time—often a couple of times each trip. In fact, our experiences with Dee are what continue to draw us there. Dee has lived on St. Croix a very long... More

It was so great that you came out sailing with us again! It was the perfect day to navigate to Point Udall and circumnavigate Buck Island.

Combine an experienced, warm and funny, and thoroughly knowledgeable captain (with an awesome first-mate), a beautiful sailing vessel (ZULU) in excellent condition, and the amazing waters of the northeast end of STX and you are in for what is likely to be the HIGHLIGHT of your vacation.

For a family, couple, or small group of friends, nothing beats a sail and snorkel with Captain Dee. She's warm, fun to be with, an expert skipper, and highly knowledgeable about all things aquatic. Plus she's a first-rate chef, so after you dry off from your guided snorkel tour, you're in for a fantastic lunch! We plan to come back... More
