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! « less

We were on the RC Jewel of The Seas cruise from 3/28-4/5. We booked a half day sail with Dee for 3/30. Simply put, it was the best activity we did on our entire cruise. Dee is awesome. She is a sweet, mellow, calm and funny person who sure knows how to sail. Her first mate for the day was... More

If you want a relaxing intimate sailing experience try belinda charters. She made us feel at home as soon as we boarded. We stopped in a quiet secluded spot and her first mate john took us smorkeling. We then went back on board where we were served delicious snacks including homemade hummus. This is the sailing trip for you if... More

Just had a wonderful day with Bilinda Charters. Captain Dee and first mate Cole were great. Safety was the number 1 priority on Zulu which is something I can appreciate. We have found in our travels that if you pay a little more for a tour you normally get a lot in return. That is the case with Bilinda Charters.... More

My friends and I enjoyed an amazing full-day sail on the ZULU. It is a personalized, casual and fun sailing experience. You feel like you are sailing on your own private boat. Captain Dee and first mate John made us feel instantly at home. I saw a beautiful turtle at Pull Point and the sea fans at Green Cay were... More

We started our vacation in St. Croix with a sailboat ride with Captain Dee and Bilinda Charters. What an excellent way to see the island and the beautiful crystal clear blue ocean all while riding along on a nice quiet sailboat. As soon as we were on the boat Captain Dee and first mate John made us feel like we... More

Your family was a lot of fun to be aboard with for the full day luncheon sail. The weather was perfect and everyone came aboard with the spirit for adventure. I am still telling the story of the helicopter that buzzed us thinking we were real pirates! We sure appreciate your stellar review of our home spun version of sailing... More

Thank you for your positive review of our little sailing business. What can I say except that we have wonderful guests that want to join us for an intimate personalized sailing day. We can only take a maximum of 6 passengers and we only book private parties. We have been experiencing the most incredible sailing weather this entire month. Just... More

Dee and Cole took us on a wonderful sunset sail - great views, conversation, casual, and great information about the island. I'd recommend taking this trip early in your stay on St. Croix, since they can offer a lot of great insider advice. Good food, too. If and when we're back in St. Croix, we definitely look forward to sailing... More

My family of four chartered Zulu with Captain Dee for a half-day sail. Captain Dee went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable on the boat and explained all of the details of our sail.

The Sunset Sail is a great way to unwind at the end of the day. Captain Dee prepared a gourmet snack, and made me feel like an old friend. There is nothing better than having a captain who is knowledgeable about sailing, and about St. Croix. Renting the boat and having it to yourself is such a plus. I would... More

Thanks "Brady Bunch" for taking the whole family out sailing with us. The boys really should get some lessons as they really enjoyed steering. Hope that you are safe and sound in Vermont.

Thank you so much for sailing with us. I thoroughly enjoyed our day on the water. That third reef in the main powered us through the day and kept things dry and comfortable in the cockpit.
