Home Port: St. Thomas yacht description

Sail the US, British or Spanish Virgin Islands for an adventure of a life time. Jalapeno charters offers personalized sailing vacations in the BVI, USVI, and the Spanish Virgins aboard our 52 foot ketch, Jalapeno. Join us for a few days, a week, or more sailing and exploring these Caribbean islands. Jalapeno provides one or two couples, or families up to 6 with possibly the most exotic, relaxing, and fun vacation experience they have ever had. Why take a cruise ship when you can have your own private sailing yacht take you to destinations the cruise ship passengers never go. Relaxing and reading, swimming, snorkeling, or learning to sail, your crew is ready to meet your vacation needs. Work with the captain directly to customize your personal sailing cruise through Caribbean waters.

Factors to consider when planning your trip:
* Do you want to do a little or lots of sailing?
* Balance between dining aboard and meals ashore?
* Private anchorages or nighttime entertainment?
* Been here before, and want to go to different places while definitely hitting a few of your prior favorites?
* It is all good, and your crew likes to be flexible.
* Never been here before? No problem. We will make sure you see all the 'not to be missed' attractions.
* Been here a dozen times? We will still take you to new places you have not seen.

We can take you to Anagada where being on the beach at Cow Wreck or Loblolly Bay feels like you are at the end of earth. Day stops at places like the Baths, the Indians, pirate caves, Sandy Cay or Sandy Spit may be high on everyone's list. Perhaps you want to add a stop at the Dogs or Monkey Point. Don't forget Jost Van Dyke! This island has great hang-outs like the Soggy Dollar, Foxey's, Ivan's, Sydney's, Abe's and many more. On Virgin Gorda in the North Sound privacy can be had off Mosquito Island or Prickly Pear, while Leverick Bay, Saba Rock, and the Bitter End Yacht Club get you doing things ashore.

This is a truly custom made vacation and is designed around the desires and wishes of you and your party. Your crew will do their best to make sure your charter is a fantastic experience that you will remember with fond memories and want to repeat. The crew will act as your chef, bartender, waiter, tour guide, activities director, and sailing instructor (should you desire)!

Two cabins, each with its own head (bathroom), accommodate 2 couples with two additional bunks available in the salon. Each stateroom is made-up with bed linens, pillows, bath towels, and beach towels. A change of linens and bath towels is provided mid-week. We also supply soap, shampoo and sunscreen.

Jalapeno is well equipped with all the comforts of home. Our large galley is a delight to cook in and holds plenty of food and beverages for your cruise. In the Caribbean, rum is king -- and a favorite of the crew for making the guests “boat drinks” before sunset, and sipping after dinner.

Your crew will prepare all your meals and beverages specified in your preference sheet. Many guests like to eat a few meals ashore to enjoy the local cuisine and ambiance at some of the local establishments, which can range from a fancy dinner to a traditional island beach barbeque (guests are responsible for any meals ashore). You might invite the crew, which is a special treat, but it is not expected. The point is for you to enjoy the islands.

The Caribbean has some of the most beautiful water in the world and beautiful fish to go with it. You can bring your own mask and snorkel, or use a set from the assortment aboard Jalapeño. We also have fins as they can be a bit more difficult to travel with.

Come sail with us for a relaxing yet adventurous vacation personalized to meet your needs. We look forward to spoiling you!

                                  About the owner: Captain Ray Bryan grew up skiing and hiking the Sierra Nevada Mountains and has been sailing for 30 years. He holds a 100 ton US Coast Guard Captain’s license and is an avid diver and snorkeler. Ray has degrees in Mechanical Engineering, holds a Professional Engineering license, and has a very successful engineering firm specializing in product development for over 20 years. First mate Jennifer met Ray skiing and shares his love of the outdoors. Jennifer taught school and was a school administrator for many years, but her love of the sea and sailing has called her to a different life. Ray and Jennifer have both worked hard to fulfill their dream of sailing their own charter yacht in the Caribbean. Their goal is to insure you relax, enjoy your time on board, and experience the beauty of the Caribbean.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Home Port: St. Thomas:

Join us for a few days, a week, or more sailing and exploring these Caribbean islands. Jalapeno provides one or two couples, or families up to 6 with possibly the most exotic, relaxing, and fun vacation experience they have ever had. Why take a cruise ship when you can have your own private sailing yacht take you to destinations the cruise ship passengers never go. Relaxing and reading, swimming, snorkeling, or learning to sail, your crew is ready to meet your vacation needs.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Yacht:

Get off the plane, settle in on Jalapeno and enjoy the rest of your vacation. Go where you want, when you want, linger away the day or not! Where ever you adventure Jalapeno is with you, providing all the comforts of home while being worlds away.
