Buck Island Charters with Heinz and Carl

“Absolutely a perfect day, accented by the peacefulness of the sail-powered journey. I would do this again in a heartbeat.”

Posted on by a guest.


Sail aboard St. Croix’s Teroro II or Dragonfly and experience a personalized tour of Buck Island National Monument. The entire trip will be powered by nature using wind power only.


The Underwater trail is a snorkel site second to none with visibility up to a hundred feet and only accessible by boat. The island barrier reef shelters thousands of tropical fish and turtles that are fortunate to live in this protected marine environment. So, strap on your snorkel gear and really get to know this incredible underwater world. The captain and first mate will guide you.


Enjoy the peaceful sail to the pristine white sands of Turtle beach, located on the south west side of the un-inhabited island. Here, you will have time to walk on Buck Island’s beautiful shoreline and enjoy a hike to the top of the island to experience mesmerizing views. Don’t forget your camera.
