Owner description: 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 family was celebrating my father's 90th birthday, and he used to sail extensively as a teenager growing up in Long Beach Ca. I thought this would be the perfect gift, and Capt. Dee made sure he had a great time. She was very conscientious about getting him on and off the boat, and made sure the day we sailed... More

We started out with 5 family members: Two grandparents, 2 parents, and a 6-year old. Grandson had never sailed (his parents moved on-island 6 months ago); this sail was a multi-generational birthday and vacation present. We hung out, the kids snorkeled, and we came back with Dee -- who I think will be a 6th family member for our Crucian... More

I learned about Captain Dee and the Zulu from other tripadvisor reviews and can only second what others have said about how great this trip and especially Captain Dee's personality are! Two of the 4 of us had never been on a sailboat before and they absolutely loved it. My husband, for whom this half-day sail was a Christmas gift... More

We had the most wonderful experience aboard the Zulu with Captain Dee and Katie. Captain Dee is such a personable lady, it seemed as though she had known us for years. She has such a wide range of knowledge about numerous topics, so it was easy to visit and enjoy the conversation. She talked about the area, the island and... More

It was great meeting you with our old friends that have joined us for the past two years aboard Zulu. Anyone that steps aboard quickly becomes part of our sailing family!

Captain Dee and Katie were OUTSTANDING hosts for our 1/2 day sailing while we were in port on a cruise ship on January 18. Meeting Captain Dee was like catching up with an old friend whom you haven't seen in a while. We enjoyed wide-ranging, friendly conversation as she sailed from the harbor toward the island's East End Marine Preserve.... More

So sweet! Thank you.. We are receiving more calls then ever from cruise ship passengers that want to find a private tour. Most call us a month in advance of their arrival and book directly through us rather than booking excursions through the cruise ship. It is important to note that we book private parties and do not find other... More
