On September 20th, Maria struck St. Croix as a Category 5 hurricane. It was a terrifying night for all of us on island. However, we are happy to report that all of the Lyric Sails and Tap Deck crew are safe and we are extremely grateful to report that our boat Jolly Mon was unharmed during the storm! Jolly Mon will be returning to Frederiksted and resuming our sunset sails and private day sails as previously scheduled in the beginning of November! St. Croix did receive a significant amount of damage, however, rebuilding and recovery efforts are well-underway and much of our critical infrastructure remains in place. Shipping ports were undamaged allowing us to receive (almost immediately) shipments of fresh food. Grocery stores are being stocked and thanks to having an oil refinery on island, we have lots of gas. Power has been returned to Christiansted, and we expect power and water to be restored to Frederiksted shortly. The airport is opening October 5th to commercial traffic, the seaplane and ferry have resumed service between STX and STT, and the Post Office has restarted mail delivery! Day-by-day, small-victory by small-victory, we are returning to normal! Restaurants are reopening each day and many of our hotels--including Cottages by the Sea, Sandcastles on the Beach,. The Buccaneer, Club Comanche, Hotel on the Cay, and others are largely undamaged and open for our upcoming tourist season. The USVI Department of Tourism has recommended that you delay your October vacations while we get our infrastructure fully up and running, but starting in November, St. Croix will be open for business! We are bruised but not beaten, and we guarantee that you will have a wonderful vacation! If you have any questions about St. Croix, your vacation and our rebuilding efforts, please don't hesitate to contact us at or give us a call at 340-201-5227 (our number is working!) and we'd be happy to give you the honest scoop and latest information! Also follow our Facebook page @lyricsails or @tapdeckstx for daily updates. If you would like to donate to our recovery efforts, we highly recommend donating to CaneBayCares, a local non-profit run by locals and 100% dedicated to rebuilding! We hope to see you soon on our always beautiful, always magical St. Croix!


Jolly Mon needs her annual TLC and inspections and will not be available for charters from Sept 4th-Nov 2nd. Please book online for bookings after November 2nd or call 340-201-5227
