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 sting rays 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!

Amazing morning out on the water. Captain Dee made sure the ride was as smooth as possible and was a pleasure to talk to. Once we got out to the reef, we saw various stingrays, octopi, starfish, flounder, barracuda, squid, and first mate Dave was an excellent guide to the snorkel process and the waters themselves. We even found a... More

Had a great sail with Capt D on the ZULU! I used to live on St Croix 34 years ago and had owned my own sail boat. This was my wife's first time for sailing and snorkeling.

Our day on the water was absolutely amazing! Capt. Dee and first mate Dave were both very enjoyable. We headed out on the water with much excitement, for we had never been sailing before. We saw turtles in the first few minutes after leaving the dock. They took us past Buck Island all the while telling us about the Island.... More

Scott appreciate the review but we only sailed to the west end of Buck island and never stopped. Our boat is not permitted to anchor or snorkel the waters inside the boundaries of Buck Island!
