We had a fabulous time with Capt. Chad and Lori. We sailed for a couple hours, snorkeled, wonderful appetizers, fresh grilled lunch and plenty to drink. Don't miss your chance for a great day of sailing and snorkeling with a great crew.

We were in St. Thomas for a few days before heading to Virgin Gorda, and decided to enjoy a sail/snorkel trip on Rumbaba. Captain Chad and Laurie were fabulous hosts! Great food, great stories, and they even watched our kids for a short time (when they decided they did not want to snorkel), while my husband and I were snorkeling.... More

My family and I decided to charter the Rumbaba and it was a great experience. The boat was clean and both Chad (Captain) and Laurie (First Mate) were very friendly. We all enjoyed the ride out to St. Johns and had an excellent time snorkeling. It was our first time snorkeling and Chad actually got in the water to point... More

We sailed with Captain Bobby and First Mate Karen on Sept. 20th. It was a perfect day for a sail/snorkel. Parking was in the lot up the hill across from the Marina. We were met promptly at Red Hook when we were picked up by Captain Bobby in a dinghy and brought to the boat. Sailed to Hawks Nest after... More

We sailed Wednesday sept 2nd. We had initially booked the sail for sept 3rd, but a tropical storm was coming in and I got a call from Captain Bobby who was concerned about the weather and thankfully rescheduled us for a day earlier. The Sail went off without a hitch and was great, the mahi mahi was amazing! the snorkeling... More

Rumbaba has been our favorite way to start our vacations for the past 6 years. Captain bobby and First Mate Karen provide a superior day of sailing and feasting. Starting the day with homemade banana bread and a sail to a special place to snorkel gets you right in the VI mood, slow and easy. After a morning snorkel or... More

I did some research online before hand and had emailed a couple of the captains. Captain Bobby was very prompt in responding and the reviews here in Trip Advisor were great. We are so glad we booked this trip. We had originally booked it for a Tuesday after we arrived on a Saturday. When we landed, Captain Bobby had left... More

My husband and I honeymooned on St. Thomas and wanted to do an all-day snorkel trip. We were staying at the Marriott and weren't sure about some of the places they were recommending at the "activities desk." Were they just making a commission? What were the trips like? We decided to just go ahead and book this one and see... More

On June 28th, my boyfriend and I set sail with Rumbaba in celebration of his 30th birthday. I may be bias since this was my first sail (ever) nevertheless, I'm confident in saying, Captain Bobby and Mate Karen are the very best in the VI. Our morning began with some marvelous Bloody Marys and blueberry-banana bread. We happened to be... More
