Rumbaba Charters offers a very memorable day filled with sailing,...

Rumbaba Charters offers a very memorable day filled with sailing, snorkeling and exceptional food and drinks. While you visit the U.S. Virgin Islands, you have got to go sailing!! We take a maximum of six passengers allowing the day to be customized for you. Great for families, kids, or couples; everybody will love it. Choose your lunch to be grilled right on the boat: Ahi Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Filet Mignon, Chicken, or hot dog (for those younger sailors!). Our delicious tropical beverages (open bar) and quality snorkeling gear are all included! Captain Melissa and her crew are professional and fun. Aboard Rumbaba, there are always plenty of great stories and good company.

We took the Rumbaba with Captains Melissa and Alexander to sail to Christmas cove. This was one of my favorite experiences in the Virgin Islands. Melissa and Alexander were both so kind, knowledgeable, and fun. The sail was gorgeous, snorkeling was fascinating, food and drinks were delicious, and the company was wonderful. Highly recommended experience!

Not a fan of snorkeling, but the boat was very nice. Great scenery, very informative crew. I would recommend doing this trip early in your stay as they know a lot about the area and are a good source of tips for cool off the beaten path spots. The food and drinks were great. Lunch on the boat was grilled... More

Went with captain Alex and Melissa yesterday out to Christmas cove, the weather said it will be pouring all day but both Alex and Melissa kept away from all the rainy clouds. It felt like we were in paradise! They played great music and served an AMAZING lunch. The drinks never stopped and neither did the snacks. Whatever you needed... More

Four adults on a Rumbaba day cruise. Melissa and Alexander take great pride in the Rumbaba and care of their guest. We enjoyed their knowledge and local stories as we sailed to two different spots. Water was warm and crystal clear. Food Presentation was awesome, fresh and very tasty. Beverages never stopped. Highly recommend this charter.

Loved our day with Melissa and Alexander, both very nice and informative! You can tell they love their home and jobs! Love the humor and jokes! Great sailing, snorkeling, and the food is AMAZING. We all had Mahi mahi and it was excellent. Appetizer dip and shrimp also great. You can't go wrong ----- spending a day with Rumbaba Charters.... More

Excellent sailing and snorkeling. Food was outstanding! This is our third time on Rumbaba in the past 5 years. Always a great time. Melissa and Alex were great hosts and excellent sailors. Will definitely sail with them again whenever we are back in St Thomas.

This is a great experience! The crew, food, drinks, and snorkeling are the best. Chris Crack dip is off the chain. Filet was cooked perfect and the Rum Punch is sneaky. Thank you Rumbaba for another wonderful day! A and M
