Owner description: Singing Dog Sailing Catamaran Charters offers luxury USVI & BVI sailing catamaran excursions for private groups of up to 12 passengers 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)!

We spent a day sailing from St. John around Tortola and Jost Van Dyke with the admiral, Kelly and Stephen. Just a wonderful day despite some very high winds. Kelly and Stephen were cautious with some first time sailors on board and provided a wonderful experience. sveral of us had never rented a sailboat beofre but were used to power boating around USVI and BVI. Everyone wants to go back next year and spend another day, if not an overnight trip on Singing Dog Sailing.
Kelly and Stephen were very gracious hosts and extremely knowledgable about the areas we visited. In addition found out that Stephen is a marine biologist by background and answered our many questions about the marine life we saw.
Definiltely can recommend to anyone to spend a day on Off-Cay.

I had the pleasure of sailing with Admiral Jake (the singing dog), Stephen and Kelly. From the first phone inquiry I was treated with kindness and respect. I went sailing with them on 3 occasions during my 1 week stay in St John. The first was a 2-3 hour sunset cruise which was awesome. The next day was an all day trip around St John which again was awesome. The final trip was over to the British VI for a day trip. Along the way we snorkeled and even learned to sail a bit.
Originally my friends and I had a trip to the BVI booked on one of the commercial boats that would have been loaded with people. After our first trip, we immediately cancelled the original trip and re-booked with Singing Dog Sailing. There were only 6 of us on the boat and made the experience much more relaxing.
Needless to say, the next time I get back to St John, I will only go out with the Singing Dog Sailing crew.

Thanks very much Stephen, Kelly and of course Jake.
