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!

My friends- July 4th week this year was one of the best I have spent in recent memory! The pier dive- the fireworks- the family dinner- and a full day of sailing on a geogeous day added up to a really fun week... Thank you so much... It is always so much fun when you are here!!

Sailing with Captain Dee is a must do if you’re visiting St. Croix. We have been fortunate enough to visit each year over the past 4 years; each time we’ve done two full-day sails with Dee on Zulu. We’ve even recommended Bilinda Charters to people we’ve met at the hotel and those that have done it have been as excited... More

We had a great time with Capt. Dee on our sail and snorkel trip. I would highly recommend! Great for all ages--we had 2 small boys with us. Dee was very informative about the island, sailing, and wildlife.

Summer season on St. Croissants usually means the kids are out of school and travelers to St. Croissants are looking for "Kid Friendly"experiences. We enjoy many of the children that join us as they are well traveled and excellent on the boat and in the water! Your two kids were a joy to be with and I always let them... More

We recently enjoyed a wonderful half day sail on the Zulu. Great boat, beautiful waters. Captain Dee is a knowledgable and excellent sailor with great stories about the island and the sea life. She and Tim made us feel so welcome, it was like sailing with old friends. We look forward to sailing with them again!

It was great sailing with you and your husband with a sweet southerly wind! We were able to run parallel to the coast and get almost to the Eastlern most point of the island for some pictures of your villa! Hope to see you back next year and I will continue to provide some wonderful goodies on board... Nice easy... More

We recently sailed with Captain Dee and First Mate Tim on a private morning sail! It was such a peaceful and relaxing sail around St. Croix! Tim was so great to be our snorkel guide!

Thank you for the 5 star review and a big Thumbs -up for recognizing the gem of a crew we have aboard Zulu. Apparently the critters were out and about to visit you .. Including the large Nurse Shart that was sleeping under the ledge. The continued conservation effort around Green Cay is a huge bonus for snorkelers . There... More

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.

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.
