Full Day Sails

Sail on our 42' Catamaran Renegade for a relaxing all-inclusive trip to Buck Island. We depart at 9:30 from downtown Christiansted to Buck Island's Turtle Beach, voted one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. We provide snorkel gear to each guest and snorkel lessons on the beach if needed. After the beach we will take everyone to the lagoon on the other side of the island and the crew will then take you in small groups through the underwater trail. After you've seen the snorkeling, we will sail to Big Beard's private beach for a barbeque lunch. We end the day with a relaxing sail back to town, arriving in Christiansted by 3:30pm. 

Half Day Sails

Designed and built on St. Croix, the Adventure offers a comfortable and exhilarating ride with ample shade and protection from the elements while still offering plenty of room to soak up some sunshine and enjoy the views. The Adventure departs from the Christiansted Boardwalk twice a day. To begin, you will spend time on Buck Island's Turtle Beach, where you can learn to snorkel with a lesson provided by our crew or just relax and enjoy the beach. Then it's off to our underwater trail where you will be guided in groups of 6 through the reef. We provide all the gear necessary and filtered drinking water throughout the day for you.

Sunset Sails

We'll sail you into a beautiful Caribbean sunset on the Renegade or cruise on Adventure and explore the island from the water. Treat yourself, your kids, or your sweetheart to a couple of hours on the water watching the sun melt into the sparkling sea as you sip on complimentary rum punch, fruit punch and water. You'll be glad you did!
