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.

This trip was out of this world! Getting to spend the day with Melissa and Alex felt like spending the day with your best friends for the day!

Even the rain storm in the afternoon could ruin this day. Great food, wonderful people, beautiful scenery - a day well spent.

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

This is my second time sailing with Rumbaba. My husband and I had such a great time last year, that we decided to go again! Like last year, it was the highlight of our trip. It feels like you are sailing with old friends- Melissa and Alex are personable, funny and have the best stories. The food is amazing, and... 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!
