Captain Ray Devine
Captain Ray is a retired Firefighter/Paramedic, and during my career, was promoted to EMS Supervisor with the St. Louis West County fire protection district.
To try and impress with my Captain abilities, I have been sailing boats since the age of 4 in my bathtub as a child, racing around the bubbles, and other toys in the tub. I moved up to larger boats, sailing the BVI´s, back in the 90´s, renting boats with the family. Then captaining and crewing boats for the last 30 years, using chartering boats from the Moorings, Voyage, TMM, Dream Yacht, and Seabattical.
I have done boat deliveries, from as far away as Cape Town, SA, to Bermuda, to St. Martin, to and from St. Thomas, Grenada, Florida, Louisiana and sailing school in Australia. I was also 1st Mate and Engineer on several large 85´ to 125´ Motor Yachts with Captain Winston Hovey, and Captain Cynthia Hovey in Florida, Tortola, St. Thomas, St. Martin, and St. Bart´s, working with Owners and guests on their boats. They even wrote a book ´ There´s a Yacht more to life´ in which I have the privilege of being in it.
Captain Ray is a PADI certified Dive Master. I hold a USCG Merchant Marine 100 Ton license, with the STCW certificate, along with a RYA Captains license from the Flying Fish School in Australia.
I am also proud to have served in the U.S. Army for 6 years as a Medical Corpsman with a Honorable Discharge. I love to do term charters. making friends along the way, enjoying the beauty of the islands, beaches, the sunsets, and having fun in the Islands, and most important, the unique experience with my guests.

Not sure where we start. Of all catamarans trips we have done, this is by far te best one. You both fit in so well in our group,like family. I am already sad that in 24 hours we will be leaving the boat. Ray Devine is extremely lucky to have 2 incredible people who are so passionate & caring. We will be looking to book again & will defintiely be talking about a secondhome in Puerto Rico. I am not saying good bye but ´sea´ you again.

Thank you for all of your hospitality. You have been beyond friendly & generous with your time + knowledge with our group. Everything was absolutely wonderful from food, to drink, to entertainment. We would not want to do this trip without you! Thank you again! Perfect trip!

Sara and Chloe
Awesome time with my family. Love playing 7´s. Our hosts were great.
We recently returned from a charter leaving from St Thomas through the USVI.
What an amazing experience this was! prepared was top notch, Caribbean oasis!
I would recommend Devine Sailing to anyone looking for a Caribbean charter where you can relax and enjoy the moment under the safe expertise of her crew,
Our week aboard Devine Sailing was amazing! and the boat was excellent. The drinks were too!. The boat was in immaculate condition and it was always clean. Lots of fun activities on the boat and at the beaches. We highly recommend Devine Sailing!
One of the best trips ever. We had a group of 8 and with most of us being boaters, some of us were concerned about having enough room for all of us on a 50’ boat. That was not an issue at all. The boat is very wide and spacious. The cabins have plenty of room & each has its own bathroom. The crew were amazing and have the local knowledge of the best places to see and to anchor. The food was great, before the trip we let them know our basic preferences & each night we were pleasantly surprised with what the chef created for us. They just took care of everything so our only job was to relax. We will definitely be back again.
The crew of Devine Sailing are truly the best of the best! We instantly became a team of adventurers in paradise. They worked tirelessly to ensure a good time was had by all! Hospitality att its best coupled with three absolutely delicious meals a day in the most beautiful venues. Can´t wait to come again!
- Pam and Bill

-Dave and Jaqlyn
Devine Sailing was truly devine! The crew were amazing - they filled every need - food and drink were fantastic. They made sure we had plenty of fun things to do like hiking, paddle boarding, and skimmer board. We highly recommend Devine Sailing
-Matt & Pam
Our Kentucky group of 10 had a very relaxing, stress free week. All of our needs were met with such kindness. Strangers are friends you haven´t met yet and this crew are now our friends.
-Jim & Jackie
What a great crew to now call family! We have totally enjoyed all the details have done to make sure we have all enjoyed our trip! Food, drinks, sailing, and lots of smiles and laughter
-Kim and Millard
We found an awesome boat with an exceptional crew! Yes, you will assume it’s too expensive….. you say you wish you could go….. or you can’t get away from your kids….. I would love to prove you wrong. It’s life changing! You will be surprised how much better your friendships will be, when you leave. This boat puts you in a situation to become so much closer as friends!!! One can’t really explain this “WOW” factor. You need to experience it.
Lots of laughs on this adventure
He had so much fun on our sailing trip. Lots of laughs, great food, and adventures. The crew was amazing, and kind. My brain is in overload with all the memories made on this trip. Until we sail again!
We were fortunate to take this amazing trip. You couldn’t ask for two better people. We saw so many beautiful places. It was fun, relaxing and amazing!
Would definitely recommend anyone take this trip of a lifetime!!
Trip of a lifetime
This is absolutely the trip of a LIFETIME! We´ve sailed MANY times with Devine Sailing and you won´t find a better experience on the beautiful waters of the virgin islands
Devine Sailing is just that....DEVINE!!! Best vacation ever! You will be spoiled by scrumptious meals, wonderful crew and captain, and the greatest sailing adventure of a lifetime!! The Virgin Islands are gorgeous! We can’t wait to do it again soon!!
One of the most amazing vacations I´ve ever experienced. Highly recommend taking a 7 day trip on Devine Sailing
Vacation of a lifetime...
Vacation of a lifetime. Highly recommend to everyone! Dick is one of the best captains. So enjoyable
This trip was the most amazing vacation I´ve taken. I´ve been 3 times with Devine sailing and you really cannot beat the pricing for the awesome experience. If you want to have an island getaway without all the people, this is it. Staying on the boat for a week is just what my soul needs each time to literally let it all go. I highly recommend Devine sailing, Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke, St. John, and St. Thomas, the amazing beaches, snorkeling, scuba diving, and the quaint little bars, shops, and restaurants you get to visit while aboard the Devine´s boat. The trip really was Devine each time!
