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!

Sailing with Capt Dee is awesome!

Captain Dee and her first mate John are just great people! The sailing was fun and John was a fantastic snorkel guide. We had a wonderful time and look forward to coming back!

My wife spent our honeymoon in St. Croix and when planning our trip knew we wanted to spend a day sailing. After much research we booked a trip with Capt. Dee and I must say the day outlived our expectation. From the start of our trip Capt. Dee and John (her first mate) did everything they could to make us... More

We had a fantastic day with Captain Dee and first mate John. We were lucky to have perfect weather and they made the most of it. We saw sea turtles, had an awesome snorkel tour and enjoyed the great sailing and snacks. This will be something we'll incorporate into our future trips to STX.

First time sailing and snorkeling and I loved it! Captain Dee and Tim were so awesome and full of cool information about the island! They both were very patient and understanding and helped me conquer my first time snorkeling at sea. Will do it again!

Our best moments aboard Zulu is to take someone from a beginners or novice stage of snorkeling to someone who is smiling ear to ear when they return to the boarding ladder! It was our pleasure to help you to challenge yourself towards greatness:))) Thanks for sailing with us.. Come back soon .. It's a short flight from Orlando! More

We spent an excellent day with D and John. Lovely conversation and a great day on the water. If you are looking for a more quaint and intimate sailing day, you will enjoy this.

Like others who were lucky enough to get to spend a day with Capt Dee and John, our family had an amazing time.

If you're looking to be just another face in the crowd on a big impersonal snorkel outing, that WILL NOT be your experience on your private charter aboard Zulu with Captain Dee and John!

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.
