Owner description: Singing Dog Sailing Catamaran Charters offers luxury USVI & BVI sailing catamaran excursions for private groups departing from St. John & St. Thomas. Superior amenities, attentive service & performance sailing capabilities are features of our charters aboard our spacious 45' (1100 square feet of usable deck and cabin space) luxury sailing catamaran, 'OFF CAY.' So UPGRADE your Coach vacation to First Class with a Singing Dog Sailing catamaran private charter. Let us be your hosts for a memorable day on the water during your next St. John or St. Thomas island vacation. As 'OFF CAY' as you want to be! Singing Dog sailing's luxury catamaran, 'OFF CAY' is stable, comfortable and spacious; you don't have to rub elbows...unless you want to! It's your private yacht for the day! Sailing catamaran 'OFF CAY' ('cause that is where we take you and that is also how the dog sings...) is twice the boat in size compared to mono-hulls of equal length & St John's only first class sailing catamaran offering charters for private groups. Why pay (sometimes more) for an inferior experience? Make your day on the water one you will treasure forever with Singing Dog Sailing where you come as a guest and leave as a friend--without the price-tag you'd expect for a luxury private charter! A NOTE: Trip Advisor members looking for Captain Kelly from St. John--Singing Dog Sailing is the place to find her. So come join the fun and sail with Kelly and the crew of Singing Dog Sailing. Also if you are looking for a reasonably priced mono-hull sailing charter, please consider Salty Dog Day Sails. We are the same company (our sister boat is not new to us, but is a new trip advisor listing, so the rankings are not high YET) with two different boats and levels of service! Try Salty Dog Day Sails for Classic Day sail charters from St. John. (same company, same great service & reputation)!

“BVI trip and diving with great friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

We had the opportunity to take an amazing day trip on Offcay. Kelly and Stephen welcomed use aboard and treated us like family. Kelly did an awesome job showing us rookies how to dive and made us feel very safe and secure. After diving they took us to Yost for lunch and some beach time. We ended the beautiful day with a slow sail while we watched the sunset over beautiful St John. Would highly recommend singing dog sailing to anyone who wants to enjoy a day of sailing on the water!

“BEST SAILING EVER!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

I had a blast while on this sail boat. The captains were awesome and the boat was so beautiful! If you plan on visiting the Virgin Islands I would have to say you need to take a sail with them. It is one thing that I plan on doing every time I come down to visit. The food that Kelly makes is awesome! Thanks for making my birthday such a special day and the choc chip cookies were great! I can't wait to come back and sail with them again. Oh yea and the dog does sing on the boat and is a great sailing buddy! He sings to you when you come back on the boat! A HUGE thanks to the Captains for making the day a special day for all of us!

“Loved the crew!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

I absolutely adored the couple that sails the boat and their dog Jake! The little things made all the difference, hot cinnamon rolls and a fruit tray upon arrival and chocolate chip cookies mid-afternoon! It was amazing to be so welcome on such an amazing boat and get to see so much of the BVIs! Kelly did all of customs paperwork for us which allowed us more time to enjoy the scenery and each other's company. It was truly one of the best days of my life!

“Best way to see the BVI, kind friendly impeccable service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

On a recent trip to the Virgin Islands, I was fortunate enough to spend a luxurious day aboard "Off Cay" with 7 girlfriends; while all of us had experienced a boating trip of the BVIs previously, we realized what we had been missing on other trips instantly. Kelly, Stephen, and the unbelievably well-mannered and adorable Admirable Jake of Off Cay/Singing Dog pay exquisite attention to detail in assuring that your tour of the BVIs is beyond your wildest dreams. From the moment we set foot on the dazzling catamaran, we felt completely at home--Kelly greeted us with snacks and asked if we'd like to connect one of our iPhones/iPods to their sound system. She let us chart our trip and made helpful suggestions as to other places we might want to visit. While lounging in the crystal clear waters of sandy spit (as Jake sprinted laps on shore) and swimming to Soggy Dollar were wonderful, the real highlight of the trip was the time we spent aboard the gorgeous catamaran. Ample seating on the front of the boat (sit in the very front trampolines for the occasional refreshing rush of a wave) is ideal for relaxing and taking in the sun and is nicely complimented by a spacious shaded deck in the rear. Extremely knowledgeable on the history, biology, and lay of the land, Kelly and Stephen could not be more phenomenal guides. The only downside was that we had to leave at the end of the day. I could not recommend this trip more; if there is ONE thing you must do on your visit to the Virgin Islands, a day with Singing Dog is it!

“Best. Boat Trip. Ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Captains Kelly and Stephen (not to mention Admiral Jake) treated my friends and me like family. They welcomed us aboard with freshly-baked cinnamon buns, and the day just kept getting better from there. They tailored our trip to our requests, and they even snapped pictures of us throughout the day and gave us the CD as a keepsake. In the decade we've been traveling throughout the USVIs and BVIs, this was without question the best charter experience we've ever had. Kelly and Stephen love what they do, so this isn't just a job for them, and you certainly won't feel like just another customer. I can't wait for our next visit!
