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!

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!

My hubsband and two friends had an amazing day sailing and snorkelling with Capt. Dee and her first mate John. Both made us feel so comfortable. We had great weather for an adventurous sail. My husband got to sail and can't stop talking about it, careful Capt. Dee we may be moving in with you. Great food and wonderful conversation.... More

What a wonderful day my friend and I had sailing with Capt. Dee and John. Perfect weather, perfect wind for a great sail. We enjoyed our sail and then really had fun snorkeling with John and seeing the local exotic fish including a giant stingray. Then a relaxing lunch followed by an easy sail back. Be sure to book well... 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

Thank you for your 5 star review of our sailing business! We enjoyed the day sailing in brisk winds the day of your sail!

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.

Hello and thanks so much for reviewing our private sailing excursion on Trip Advisor! Having 2 passengers is just great as you were able to stretch out and really relax during our sail. I will let my mate know about your exceptional remarks! I also feel that we have top snorkeling guides. We like to give comprehensive briefings and lessons... More

Capt. Dee's sailing trips are perfect for everyone, whether you are snorkeling or just want to relax aboard the ship. A wealth of information, Capt. Dee shares her love of the sea and Saint Croix, while helping spot turtles along the coast. Two of the five in our group enjoyed some of the best snorkeling I've had around the island,... More

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.

Thank you for the great review and the experience to meet your Dad! He was a really good sailor and a wonderful conversationalist. Let him know that I am now finding out more about St. Croix's geologic structures. I also researched metavolcanic rock. I learned a lot while you were all snorkeling!!! A trip to remember..

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
