One of my favorite things to living her in the US Virgin Islands is sailing. I love the sound of the wind in the sails, the feel of the ocean breeze on my face and the views of beautiful St Croix from offshore. Here are some great options for sailing adventures while you are here on St Croix:
Most of our Buck Island Tour Operators also offer evening sunset sails out of Christiansted Harbor. Sail time depends on the time of year (our sunset schedule only varies by a little over an hour – so in the summer time the latest the sun sets is about 7pm in early July; the earliest it sets in December is 5:40pm) so be sure to check with the boat what time its setting sail! Sunset sails typically go out for about 2 hours.

The World Ocean School is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing challenging educational programs aboard the Schooner Roseway. She spends her winters here on St Croix where they offer educational programs to local school children. Part of the way they raise funds is by offering day and sunset sails. This is a fantastic opportunity to help hoist the sails and see what its like to sail aboard a tall ship! She’s here in our waters typically from late November thru April or May.
