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 had a wonderful experience with Rumbaba. My wife and I were picked up at the American Yacht Harbor and ferried aboard a beautiful Legend 37 foot yacht. After a brief safety seminar, we set sail. Captain Melissa and First Mate Alexander were highly knowledgeable of the surrounding waters and the operations of their vessel. In addition to their expertise... More

We had a wonderful time sailing with owner Melissa and captain Alexander. Although we booked an all day sail that has room for 6, we got very lucky and were the only two on that sailing. The weather was perfect and we went to many beautiful places, including two snorkel stops. We saw lots of colorful fish, a stingray, and... More

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! They were beyond welcoming and accommodating to all of our needs. The food was incredible and open bar was a great touch. I would highly recommend this tripe to anyone, but those... More

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
