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!

Private sailing excursion at its very finest. Captain Dee has a passion for sailing and St Croix. She chose amazing locations to stop for once in a lifetime snorkeling. We saw huge turtles and too many fish and sea creatures to name them all!! Sailing with Captain Dee on Zulu was a day my family will never forget.

I really enjoyed your family.. It's so wonderful to meet so many young parents that are able to provide their children with experiences like ours! What a great way to grow up! Summer brings such super families sharing adventures in paradise. I appreciate you sailing with us and hope your other excursion to Buck Island was a big hit too..... More

What an amazing experience! We had a great time. Capt Dee really loves what she does. Her passion and knowledge of both sailing and all things St. Croix made the whole experience very personal and fun. You do not feel like "just another tourist" with Captain Dee. It was more like sailing with friends. (Did I mention the countless sea... More

Thank you for a wonderful review and please come back! We loved having you and your girlfriend aboard. Great energy and lots of laughs:) Summer is Green turtle mating season and one of our upwind tacking games we play to count the number of extremely large green and hawksbill tiurtles we see..

We did a half day private sail and snorkeling trip with Capt. Dee. It was amazing. We left the dock about 10am, sailed for about 1.5 hrs to a private Bay area where our first mate David took us out snorkeling. He was awesome. He found all the sea life and pointed out rays, starfish, trump fish, and more. Then... More

The "dog days" of summer are upon us. The water is warm - the weather is balmy and we are sailing in great wind. Thank you for sailing with us and requesting Astro to come along. He loves to sail and he recognizes dog lovers immediately. If anyone reads these responses I would definitely suggest that you do not look... More

Thank you Captain Dee and First Mate Dave for a truly memorable sailing experience in gorgeous St. Croix! We planned on a peaceful afternoon sailing trip and ended up awed by your mad storm dodging skills - out sailing four separate squalls and still showing us the majesty of Buck Island, enormous sea turtles, and crazy blue Caribbean Seas.

I do some work on the island of St. Croix and have visited the island several times since 2004. This visit, we decided to charter a private sailboat and we weren't disappointed by Captain D and the Zulu.

Discover sailing: Captain Dee fine-tuned my sail handling skills just before an attempt to th Arctic by sail. Her deep knowledge, patience and humor, combined with the beauty of St. Croix was just perfect!!! Zulu is a wonderful sailing vessel and David a great first mate! I highly recommend honing your selling skills with Captain Dee.

My wife and I did a charter with Capt. Dee a few days ago. We enjoyed a nice sail up to Teague Bay. On the way we spotted a few turtles.

Our trips to Teague Bay are some of the most biodiverse snorkeling you can do on St. Croix. We snorkel along a barrier reef and include snorkeling across sand and to 2 deeper patch reefs.

We had a great day of sailing with Capt Dee. We learned a little about sailing, we all got to steer the helm and work the sails. We sailed off the coast and then stopped for a short time to snorkel off Green Cay which had some great snorkeling. Great day.
