Overview
More
Born to Rhumb is St. John's only Coast Guard certified, exclusively private 12 passenger motor vessel offering day trips to the British Virgin Islands or around St John. This 34' Maine built excursion charter boat has ample seating room for larger parties, and has a cabin and head below deck. We cruise at a speedy 20 knots and if seas get rough, this boat handles with ease and comfort thanks to a full keel and 440 hp diesel engine. We carry a fully stocked cooler, snorkel gear for all on board, and a great crew to make sure that your day is packed with fun and free of worry. Your group will not be mixed with other groups and you may choose your own itinerary or let us be your guide. We look forward to having you onboard, because we're the "Best Ride in the VI!"

How easy is it to get back into the boat from the water?

It's pretty easy but it you need help, the crew is more than willing and able to assist.
