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 went on a day trip with Kelly and Stephen and had a fantastic day. I actually had a very sprained ankle at the time and they took excellent care of me during the trip. Our group decided on the places that we wanted to visit & they gave us an excellent trip. In addition, we were treated to breakfast fruit and pastries and most importantly awesome pain killers. I look forward to our next sailing trip with Kelly, Stephen and Jake!!!

We had an amazing day on Off Cay with Steven, Kelly and Jake the singing dog. They treated us like family and shared their wealth of knowledge of St. John, sailing and snorkeling. Our group included a 9 year old and a 75 year old who both had a wonderful day. Steven acted as a personal instructor for my 75 year old mother in the water since she had never snorkeled or been in the ocean before. He had amazing patience with her and made sure that she saw as much as possible while snorkeling. Kelly made sure that my 9 year old had fun too. She took her along in the dingy to do a beach run with Jake and she even gave her a chance to take the wheel for a photo op. Our day started at 9:30 am and ended at sunset and every moment was memorable. We can't wait to do it all over again. On a previous trip we had been on a luxury motor boat day trip and Singing Dog was a much better experience, it was wonderful to spend the day with the owners of the boat and the business. I appreciated getting to know them and the personal attention. We enjoyed it so much that my husband and I went out after sunset to hear Steven play guitar and sing at a bar in Cruz Bay. If you are planning a trip to St. John, I would highly recommend day on Off Cay.

Both Kelly and Stephen ensured that we enjoyed a special day around St. John and the BVI. Their care and expertise in sailing made the entire day a great dream trip. We appreciated their emphasis on making the entire experience from e-mail communications to every detail a first-class trip.

We took a group of 6 adults on a day sail around Pillsbury Sound on the Singing Dog catamaran. We have sailed around St John and to the BVIs many times on mono-hull sailboats, catamarans, and motor boats. This was by far the best trip ever. The boat is fantastic and Captains Kelly and Steve were terrific. Jake, the singing dog, was also great company. I can't wait to sail with them again and am trying to figure out when we can schedule another trip to St John and another day of sailing. Kelly and Steve are very experienced and gave me a sailing lesson while we were touring various islands and snorkel spots accessible only by boat. They entertained our group and fed us very well. The boat is a 45 foot high performance catamaran that is very comfortable and well outfitted. There was plenty of room to spread out in the back and on the netting stretched across the front pontoons. Steve snorkeled with our group and took underwater pictures which they put on a disc for us before we were dropped in Cruz Bay at the end of the day. A great time was had by all.

The sunset sail was such a wonderful time. Wonderful company, wonderful crew and, of course, Jake....Thank you so much for a wonderful evening.
