A Message from Capt. Dee

Come join the Captain and Crew aboard ZULU as we set sail from beautiful Green Cay Marina located in the Tamarind Reef Resort.

This year marks my 12th season 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 Green Cay Marina 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, environmentally friendly sunscreen (no aerosol sunscreen please), 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


captCaptain Dee moved to St. Croix in 1975.
Since 1987 she has held 100 ton USGS Masters License as well as  a 100 Ton Multi- Passenger Sail Auxiliary  License.
Dee purchased Zulu in 2004 after working as her captain for one season - “The chance to own and operate my own charter boat was a dream come true!”

Throughout her years on St. Croix she has had a number employment opportunities to build on her experience and create a multitude of wonderful memories.
Employment has included The Annapolis Sailing School and  Jones Maritime as a sailing instructor and Dive Experience as a Dive Master.

In 1978 she owned and operated “Virgin Surf and Sail” the first windsurfing school in the Virgin Islands. Her professional windsurfing career included teaching sailing daily at the three locations she operated on St. Croix.
To log sea time for her USCG License Dee worked as a first mate and cook. Cruising trips have included the Intracoastal Waterway and the East Coast of the United States to Florida and the Caribbean.
"When I first arrived in St. Croix in 1975 I was recruited by the USVI Government to work as a classroom teacher and later by the Anti-Litter and Beautification Commission as an Environmental Educator. During those years I was a founding member of (VINE) The Virgin Islands Network of Environmental Educators as well as the St. Croix Recycling Association.
I bring all my experience of living and working on St. Croix to you in the form of a day spent sailing and snorkeling aboard “ZULU”.
Sailing is my passion …taking care of my guests aboard is my gift to you!"

Fair Winds and following seas,
Capt. Dee

Capt. Dee tailored our trip to our needs and wishes, was very knowledgeable, served wonderful refreshments and made us feel like we were sailing with an old friend.”
