    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The culture on Water Island is especially unique even to other Caribbean locals. The vibe is extremely relaxed. Most people here spend their days laying on the beach or drinking at the local bar. Turtles nest in the bay we are situated in, we are also (sometimes) visited by dolphins. The sea life is very alive here and you can expect the nightlife on St. Thomas is just as alive.

  • Help


    On board your tasks will include preparing meals for the crew, cleaning, and getting groceries. You may be asked to assist the captain during regular boat maintenance but only in a limited capacity. The captain is also studying to attend university next year so college level math skills would be considered a great asset but not necessary.

  • Accommodation


    Our yacht is 81ft long and 21ft wide, we have 6 cabins and 5 bathrooms. Workawayers would sleep in the forward V birth. There are two bunk beds in that cabin, so if more than one workaway is on board they would share accommodation. The bathroom is shared with the captain also.
