Absolutely one of the best days on the island! We were greeted warmly by Capt. Heinz and his crew as we boarded the Terero. After clearing the marina, the sails were hoisted and we were underway. The views of St. croix and Buck Island were...More

Call 340-718-3161 -- tour is from 9-2 approximately located at Green Cay Marina-- 10 minutes outside of town of Christiansted. You will never forget this experience. Tell them TC and Dennis sent you!
