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)!

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!

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!

Recently went aboard Off Cay catamaran from Singing Dog Sailing charters. On board where 8 50 ton rated captains with years of experience but the best of them were Captains Kelly and Steve from Singing Dog. The dog is admiral Jake who kept us all ship shape. The day was perfect, real sailing without the engine on just in case. This was no booze cruise, though there were plenty of adult beverages. The word for the day was sailing, with equal parts fun and sun. The boat was sparkling clean and comfortable. The captains very knowledgable of sailing and the surrounding islands and history. Food, fish tacos, was yum. Hard to satisfy 8 jaded captains but at day's end all I could think to say was, now that's how a day on the water should be.Great time!

Our family had two beautiful, fun-filled days aboard Off Cay. Kelly, Stephen and Jake were excellent hosts on a most-magnificent catamaran. The catamaran is sparkling clean, well-maintanted and has lots of room to relax and enjoy your trip. Kelly and Stephen's knowledge of the islands and marine wildlife, as well as their kid-freindly personalities, only added to each day's sailing experience. I highly recommend Singing Dog Sailing and intend to use their services each and every time we visit St. John.

I've been travelling to the USVI/BVIs for over ten years - and have taken a boat trip each time. However, the day on "Off-Cay" will go down as my most favorite. Kelly, Stephen and even Jake(!) were fabulous Captains and hosts. They are such a wonderful couple and their love for life is infectious. From fresh fruit trays to afternoon chocolate chip cookies, every detail exceeded our expectations! At the end of the sail, our group laughed at all our ridiculous past trips on power boats with sketchy captains - and wondered why we didn't travel book "Off-Cay" sooner! I loved my time on the catamaran and cannot wait to schedule my next trip!
