5 Tips to surviving post Hurricane

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Hey Everyone,

It has now been 7 weeks since we were hit with two category 5 hurricanes within one week of each other! While the recovery process is underway there are some tips we wanted to share for friends and family on keeping your sanity during these difficult times.

  1. Always have extra chainsaw chains! Whoever thought that chainsaw chains would become a staple house hold item? Well, once you have lived through two category 5’s you will realize just how useful those extra chains can be! 😉
  2. Unplanned visits with friends are always welcome and most often much needed! With the lack of cell phone service and early curfews, staying in touch can be difficult. Don’t forget to do the old drop by and knock and check in on those you love spending time with. Catching up and even sharing a cold beer or glass of wine can change your whole day and make you feel a sense of normalcy.
  3. Be sure to volunteer to help your community! In the midst of tragedy there is nothing more uplifting than volunteering to help those even less fortunate and bonding together with your local community to begin the rebuilding process. It will remind you how strong and resilient our small island is.
  4. Don’t forget to stop and witness the beauty of Mother Nature! Although the hurricanes demolished most plant life, with all the rain, the trees and flowers are coming back more beautiful than ever. It is really amazing to see Mother Nature at work and we have no doubt the island will be green once again.
  5. Smile! It is difficult to stay motivated during times like these, but putting a smile on your face and sharing a laugh with friends or even strangers can make you feel so much better! Just remember in time it will get better!

Hurricane Recovery Update

Friends and family,

We just want to thank everyone again for your outpouring of support and thoughts during this difficult time for our community. The devastation is unimaginable, but the strength of the Virgin Islanders is unwavering, and we are pushing forward. Everyday, we work tirelessly to rebuild our beloved islands.

As the See and Ski fleet was not damaged during the hurricane, the crew is already back in action, out on the water everyday bringing supplies to the islands (USVI and BVI), helping others who were not so lucky, and taxiing people from island to island. Phones are still down, but Captain Thomas can be reached directly at 340-690-2494.

The recovery process is slow and at times feels daunting, but we know we will make it through. Hurricane recovery comes one day at a time, but the island is slowly getting green again and flowers are beginning to bloom. One thing that is clear is that Mother Nature is resilient.

Pictured below is the beloved White Bay, Jost Van Dyke and the rescue of a boat from the Mangroves in St. Thomas.

See and Ski is blessed to report we survived “IRMARIA”

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

See and Ski is blessed to report we survived “IRMARIA” – Hurricanes Irma and Maria.  Mathias, Thomas, our captains and all our boats are safe and sound. In our 35 years of operation we have weathered several devastating hurricanes but the IRMARIA CAT 5 duo back to back was without a doubt the most powerful.   St. Thomas, St. John and our neighboring British Virgin Islands suffered considerable damage but we are all digging in and the recovery process is underway.  Recovery requires individually grit and collectively a sense of community.  Luckily, the See and Ski team possesses both.

Our boats are back in the water; however, connectivity is still a challenge.  To reach us please use our cell phones.  To call or text Mathias – 340-227-7497 and Thomas – 340-690-2494.  Big thanks to all our loyal customers for your thoughts and concern #SEEANDSKI #VISTRONG.
