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)!

From the moment you step on Steve, Kelly and Jake's :) catamaran, you feel like you're at home. You never feel out of place, you feel like you're with long lost friends and family. This is our second time sailing with them, and will hopefully not be our last. We would never sail with anyone else. Steve and Kelly are hospitable, very safety conscious (which makes you feel great about going into the water) whether you're snorkeling or scuba diving. Steve will take you on wonderful adventures underwater. Kelly is a great cook, awesome company (if you just want to hang out on the boat) and makes awesome Pain Killers :) and what can we say about Jake? Well, he's just the icing on the cake...and a great Second Mate! Thanks for the memories and all the fun! It's a trip that you will never forget!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

If you are reading this post, you must book a day with Stephen and Kelly. Our party of 6 spent the day on their beautiful sailboat (and Jake, who by the way sang happy birthday to me). From the second we got in the dinghy with Stephen, to the final cruise at sunset, everything was perfect. Stephen instantly worked to learn all of our names before we even reached the yacht. once we reached the boat, kelly was coming out of the kitchen with fresh cinnamon rolls and fruit plate. Of course our group didnt waste time starting with drinks and it got better from there. Kelly and Stephen took care of us like we were family the whole day. I truly cant say enough about this charter. We even met them after the day was over at a local bar and listened to Stephen sing. (one of us even sang along...) If you arent sure whether or not to book a day with them, dont HESITATE for a second, you will be so glad you did. We cant wait for next year and will try to get back before then to see them.

This day was the most wonderful day of our whole vacation! Kelly and Stephen (and of course Jake) were the perfect host. The boat was beautiful and they made us feel right at home. My sister-in-law had been sailing with Kelly and Stephen before and kept telling us how much fun she had. So when our cruise ship docked in St. Thomas, we planned a day on the "Off Cay". It was truly an amazing day!!!!! I would guess that it would be a pretty big compliment if you get off one of the biggest cruise ships Carnival makes to go sailing, and THAT WAS YOUR BEST DAY AT SEA! We are already planning our next trip to go sailing with Kelly, Stephen and Jake!

We just returned from St. John and we had a fantastic day on the water with Stephen, Kelly and their singing dog, Jake. What an incredible day! The boat is in pristine condition and exceptionally clean - absolutely no sand on the boat. We were welcomed with cinnamon rolls and a beautiful display of fresh fruits for breakfast...quickly followed by cocktails. Stephen and Kelly took us out and our first stop was Tortola and a myriad of beautiful islands. We sailed the entire day and they graciously allowed us to extend our trip to see a beautiful sunset. The service was impeccable and they were quite friendly and kind. Stephen and Kelly are quite knowledgeable about the waters and we felt so safe and comfortable with them as they navigated the water. We had a group of six and Kelly was very attentive to our every need. We look forward to sailing again with them next year and will book a couple of days on our next visit.

We just returned from St John and enjoyed a great day on the water with Kelly and Stephen. These two Captains are the most knowledgeable, professional and accommodating pair I have ever met. They are fun, courteous and attentive to anything you may need. There is no one better in the St John area!
The boat is spotless, has plenty of room for a group or a great size for a couple. I highly recommend Sing Dog Sailing!
