Darrin & Desire
Captain Darrin Jackson is a third generation mariner. Born in St. Thomas and raised on a boat in the US and British Virgin Islands , Darrin took to the water at an early age. The family business of marine transportation, construction and salvage exposed him to the many aspects of professional life upon the seas. Eager to follow in his fathers footsteps he obtained his captains license at 19 and immediately began his career on the waters of the Caribbean ultimately captaining several vessels, including catamarans and a 75 ft Schooner. Darrin's passion for sailing led him to begin racing in regattas, he also enjoys surfing, free-diving, and spearfishing. He looks forward to showing you all the wonders of his "backyard"!

Darrin & Desire were awesome! Darrin was the best Captain ever and he knows his islands. He took us to a few out of the way sites that were wonderful and appreciated. Desire is an amazing chef and kept our bellies happy! Everything she created was delightful and yummy. We adored them so much.
Mimzy is beautiful and plenty of room for the four of us. This was a first time experience for all of us and it was perfect.
Our Virgin Island itinerary was amazing and everything we had hoped for. We can't wait to experience this again. Darrin went over everything with us and asked our opinions and accommodated everything we requested but he also had suggestions that were perfect!
Very happy with Sailing Directions’ service. The response time was always immediate and all my questions were always answered. We will definitely use your service again in the future and have already recommended to several friends.
This was a bucket list of ours for years and was everything we hoped it would be. We are saving up for next year!
