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!

Our five-adult group thoroughly enjoyed our six-hour trip with Dee and Katie. We learned a lot about the island as we sailed out to an excellent snorkelling site. Katie gave us an underwater tour as she pointed out various fish and coral. After the tour we were taken to another location, where we were free to roam. When we had... More

Thank you for rating our trip based on the great customer service we offer aboard Zulu. Prior to Trip Advisor reviews ,island guests had to make their activity choices by reading fancy print advertising. Guest testimonials and comments have greatly improved customer service and have become the standard for the savvy traveler to make plans. We are well informed islanders... More

After checking in with Captain Dee early in the morning on weather conditions we were clear to go. As we left the harbor the water was a little rough but after a brief rain shower the sun shone & it was smooth sailing for the remainder of our trip- just as Captain Dee predicted! Katie was a great guide in... More

One of the reasons we returned to St Croix was to go sailing with Diane aboard Zulu. I tried to book at the last minute last year and wasn't successful. I corrected that mistake this year and booked before we left! The winds were up the week we were there and Capt. Dee kept us informed via email of the... More

My wife and I had an awesome sail. Capt. Dee and First Mate John were so welcoming and did everything to make our time aboard what we desired. Once Capt. Dee navigated us through the reefs, she gave us the wheel. As we are sailors, but on smaller boats with tillers, she subtly gave us instruction to maximize our adventure.... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our half day of sailing and snorkeling with Captain Dee and First Mate Katie. They were very welcoming and fun to sail with. The snorkeling was informative due to Katie's knowledge and the tuna plus garden fresh tomatoes were an excellent bonus to a great day. We would highly recommend them in St Croix.
