Overview

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. While aboard you will enjoy a wonderful appetizer plate, and a Hawaiian style lunch with Kalua pork, sticky rice, and macaroni salad, or hot dog (for those younger sailors!). Our delicious tropical beverages (open bar) and quality snorkeling gear are all included! Captain Jon and Christina are professional and fun. Aboard Rumbaba, there are always plenty of great stories and good company.
