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 enjoyed a timely departure out of RedHook. The boat was nice and spacious and we were given clear detailed instructions by our Captains Alexander and Melissa. We had a relaxing sail to a snorkeling spot near Christmas Cove where we saw plenty of colorful fish and coral. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch provided by Melissa. The pictures on this... More

Daysail on the Rumbaba with Capt Melissa and Captain Alexander (5 adult family members) today. Fabulous sail, great snorkeling and very accommodating for the guests and we can't say enough about the appetizers and fresh lunch grilled on board. Small group (max 6 guests) makes a great day for family! Sailed the same boat 11 years ago - won't wait... More

Alex and Melissa made our day sailing in St Thomas. Both have a wealth of current and historical information about the area. My dad is 86 and not very mobile but they made every adjustment necessary to make his day perfect. Melissa escorted my son and his girlfriend on amazing snokelling excursions. I was most impressed with the homemade appetizers... More

This was the second time we booked Rumbaba, and I couldn't wait to get out there again. We had a great day, and seeing Captains Melissa and Alex (aka Sandy) was like seeing old friends again. Food was wonderful, and snorkeling was even better. Alex helped us spot some really interesting things, like puffer fish, and a giant lobster! They... More

Melissa and Alex are awesome. I booked a private sail for my husband and I. The boat needed a fix, but Melissa was very proactive in communication through the whole process from booking, to close to arrival, to day prior to arrival, and arrival. Even with the boat fix (which if you sail or boat this is normal) they were... More

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
