All trips originate from St. Croix USVI. Let Us Help You In Planning Your Special Event or Celebration. Your charter vacation will be crewed with a Captain who will take care of your every need.  The dual hull structure of our Robertson and Caine Leopard 47 sailing catamaran provides a stable and smooth ride even in rough conditions. Enjoy chartering without the uncomfortable "heeling" of a traditional monohull vessel.  Our swim ladder provide easy access while snorkeling or swimming and an outdoor shower for rinsing off once you're back onboard.  There are  multiple seating areas, making even large groups feel comfortable.  The covered aft seating area provides shade and cover in the event of rain.   Because most of our guests prefer their own lunch we do not provide provisions other than water and in some cases soft drinks.  You are welcome to bring along anything you would like for the day. The choice is yours and we are happy to help you realize your travel dreams!

Are you visiting and looking for a great tour? Look no further. Introducing,.Hanging with the locals

Hanging With The Locals, owned and operated by Carmen McAlpin-Clarke started in 2017 and stems from the pride and passion of showing off our beautiful island to several friends and family members who have visited St. Croix over the years.

As native virgin islanders we are offered a quality of life that includes tranquility, historic pride and preservation and great cuisine with a small town feel.

St. Croix is the largest of the islands in its territory that make up the United States Virgin Islands (USVI) and is a hidden gem often overshadowed by her sister island St Thomas who has blossomed from the attention of millions of visitors every year.

St. Croix, known as a twin city, offers a combination of lush landscapes, blue seas and rolling mountains.

Come spend the day hanging with the locals and allow us to show you around and share our beautiful island, culture and customs.
