Sailing St. Croix, US Virgin Islands : Sailing Charters : Bilinda Charters

A Message from Capt. Dee

Come join the crew and me as we set sail from historic Christiansted harbor aboard “ZULU,” a 36 ft Albin sailing sloop.

This season marks my 10th year of offering private day sails along the North Coast of St. Croix. We sail into the Caribbean Sea and find a secure anchorage in the East End Marine Park Sanctuary where we snorkel, swim, snack or lunch, and relax for the day.

Upon boarding at the Christiansted boardwalk you will step aboard into a large shaded cockpit and listen to the days briefing. For your convenience “ZULU” is equipped with a custom-built wide swim platform and a deep ladder to enter and exit the water with ease. Our crew takes great pride in offering good snorkeling gear, flotation devices, lessons and a guided tour of the chosen anchorage. So pack light, bring a towel, an extra tee shirt, sunscreen, and your camera. We will provide all the food and beverages. Capt. Dee is a great chef and offers fresh and local produce and fish to support our local farmers and fisherman. Special dietary needs are easily accommodated.

Please, let us know if you have booked this trip for a special occasion. We will be able to offer suggestions about how we can make your day on the water the most memorable of your vacation. If you would like to take the helm or be part of the crew just let us know. Some guests just relax and let us sail but others like a more interactive experience and want to steer, raise sails and be part of the crew. We cater to all of our guests with personalized service.

You'll love the experience of chartering “ZULU” and it will undoubtedly be the best part of your vacation on St. Croix!

Let's go sailing!
Capt. Dee
