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 tarpons, 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!

In the Navy, when an individual or a group perform in an outstanding way, they receive a "Bravo Zulu" award as a way to congratulate them on a job well done. Captain Dee, Mate Tim, and the beautiful sailing vessel "Zulu" deserve that and MORE! We took a half-day cruise with Bilinda Charters today and had a FANTASTIC time! Captain... More

My friend and I were so pleased with our sailing experience with Captain Dee and First Mate Katie aboard the sailboat Zulu. Katie took us on a snorkel adventure and we saw a turtle, parrot fish, cushion starfish, numerous sea urchins, and so many colorful fish. The winds were perfect and the water so blue. Katie educated us on all... More

I had a big decision to make: what to do to celebrate a "big birthday" while in St Croix. I am so glad we chose Bilinda Charters: Captain Dee and Tim gave my whole family the time of our lives.

I did a day trip to Buck Island last year with a big-boat company. This year we opted for a private charter with Captain Dee, and it was hands down one of the two best day-sails we've ever done. The reef at Teague Bay in the East End Marine Preserve has almost exactly the same coral, fish, etc, that I... More

As soon as we decided to go to St. Croix, we knew that we wanted to do a charter sailing excursion. We selected Captain Dee based on the great reviews on TripAdvisor, and the trip was everything we had hoped for. Captain Dee and Tim were both very accommodating and helpful. Captain Dee basically tailored our excursion around us. Since... More

Great Review and pictures too! It's always fun to sail when the winds and seas are in perfect harmony! Glad you enjoyed taking the helm. As a hobiecat sailor you obviously we're able to understand the slower pace of cruising monahauls. We enjoyed your family and the diving stories. Hope you enjoyed the wonderful wall diving.
