Hoist the sails and away we go on a beautiful 104’ three masted schooner… The Juliet! This will be a trip unlike any you have done before.
We will be spending the trip sailing and diving our way around the beautiful island of St. Croix.
St. Croix is truly a hidden gem in the Caribbean. Part of the US Virgin Islands, but worlds apart from the usual. Just 35 miles south of St. Thomas, St. John and BVIs it is the largest of the USVIs and the most dramatic. At 84 miles square and highest elevation at Mount Eagle of 1,165ft, St Croix boasts beautiful beaches, rain forests, salt marshes, desert, and plains. But the diversity and beauty does not stop at sea level.
Trips begin and end at the Frederiksted Pier, which means you land, you can head to the boat, toss your clothes in your cabin and throw a tank on your back the day you arrive! If your no-fly times allow for it, at the end of the trip take a dip with a final afternoon and even a night dive at the Pier as well. This Pier is beloved to many a diver, photographer, and critter lover.
Ranging in depths from 10 to 60 feet, there is no lack of diversity all along the pilings. Jump off Juliet for a dive, or have some fun jumping from directly off the pier -a 20′ drop, now that is a giant stride! Octopus, sea horses, and frog fish are almost guaranteed on every dive, not to mention juvenile puffers and box fish, tons of varieties of worms and sea slugs, and a handful of resident turtles as well.
More about the Juliet
The Juliet features six private staterooms appointed in exotic hardwoods. The main salon has a panoramic view of the surrounding waters. Above deck, you will find an expansive sun deck with a great area for gearing up! Please be aware that weather and conditions cannot be guaranteed, nor is it always possible for the crew to find an island to hide behind. If you join this trip with a sense for adventure and new experiences, we are sure you will have a trip of a lifetime!
