We went through Sweet Bottom Dive Center with Mel and Greg. What a experience. You get to raise the huge sails and here about the history of the boat. Highly recommend this.

Delightful sunset cruise on a restores schooner ......passengers can relax or help with raising the sails. Proceeds from the ticket price help to fund the Rosway's educational programs for youth. Well-trained staff is welcoming and extremely informative

What a great mission statement! They offer this experience to under served youth who would otherwise not be given this opportunity! They also give experience to students working towards their sailing goals! We even got to help the crew put up the masts! Wow that's a lot of work and we really weren't doing the brunt of it! Beautiful sailing... More

We spent a great afternoon in St. Croix sailing the Roseway which is a beautiful old restored schooner that is part of the World Ocean School. The captain and crew were talented and personable and passengers were invited to help raise the sails. No mean feat. The winds were blowing and seas were high which gave us a true sense... More

We have been on the Roseway many times and enjoyed it every time. It is a relaxing sail that gives you a chance to see St. Croix from a different perspective. You really see how large this island is when you are at sea. The crew is wonderful and they have lots of info and historical stories to share. If... More

The crew on the boat are college age or just older people who spend six months to a year of two sailing her before moving on... More

The Roseway is a beautiful wooden ship. 137 feet long and still operated in the original way. Passengers get to help hoist the sails. Trip is 2 1/2 hours long. Great way to see the coast of St. Croix. Left at 4pm and returned at 6:30 pm so we say the sun setting over the island. Smooth sailing all the... More

Friends gave us this sunset cruise as a gift for our birthdays. Incredible ship, crew is fantastic and knowledgeable, and the Captain is a real professional. Great cruise (wish it were longer) for a great cause. A "must-do" when visiting St Croix.

Roseway is the BEST activity on St. Croix. The captain is SO good with kids; the whole experience is SO interactive. May they stay forever!!

We've been on the Roseway twice, and it is a really great time. It is a fantastic way to view the island. The crew is always welcoming, informative and funny. The bonus of this ship is that they are all about teaching children about sailing. What better reason to support them?
