  • Captain B and special K!
    You guys were literally amazing. I loved this trip so so so much. One of the best trips that I have been on. You guys were so fun and I will definitely miss you! You always made me laugh so much and I don’t think I was down once this trip! Thank you so much for spoiling me!

  • This has been one of the best trips of my life. Karen and Brendan made this trip more than I could ask for. They gave us experiences, stories, and more fun than I could ever ask for. I would come back in a heartbeat. Cooking was absolutely phenomenal. They made sure to capture every precious moment. I will never forget this trip!

  • Karen and Brendan,
    What a trip of a lifetime! Thank you both for taking such a great care of us and sailing us to the most beautiful places in the USVI. The snorkeling on this trip has been the best I have ever experienced and your knowledge of the coves to find it was magical. The food was outstanding throughout the week and your cheerful presentation made every meal an experience.

    Finally, thank you for joining our group as though you were part of our friendship group. You guys are wonderful and meeting you was a blessing. You are forever our friends and I wish you both the best life has to offer in the future. Thank you for an amazing week on these beautiful waters! With love!

  • Karen and Brendan,
    Thank you so much for taking such good care of us this week. You made this a trip of a lifetime. Thank you for putting up with us – and Mr Olson! We can tell you love your jobs and you are great at it! We are hoping one day we can make it back for another trip with you guys. We wish rich blessings on you and hope you get to find new adventures. With gratitude!

  • Darla and Jerry Kitchen

    We have totally enjoyed being with friends and especially the crew! There are so many memories that were made this week! You guys are and make a fantastic team. I do hope we will stay in touch. Oh and the knowledge we captured will definitely be remembered and shared. I wish you both best wishes. You made us feel as if we were part of your family. Love you guys!

  • Karen and Brendan,
    It was worth the 2 year wait! We had planned this trip years ago and we were nervous we would miss the opportunity for our families. This trip blew our wildest expectations. Brendan was an incredible captain and host, always patient and catering to our desires to spend as much time as possible in the water. You could tell how much he genuinely enjoyed our knuckleheads playing in the water. The snorkeling spots were incredible! Our kids had a ton of fun being towed by the dinghy.

    Karen was an amazing chef and more importantly, incredibly thoughtful about our food restrictions. The meals were delicious and you could tell that she took great investment in our happiness!

    The week went by way too fast! We cannot wait until our paths cross again! xoxo

  • Thanks for a luxurious week of sunsets, cocktails, snorkeling and water sports. Brendan refused to let our families lift a finger taking care of everything and Karen not only was a phenomenal cook but she went out of her way to make sure we had everything we desired! The amazing views of the Virgin Islands will never be forgotten. Thanks for all the wonderful memories.

    Thank you so much for helping our family make the most amazing memories – Karen, your cooking was spectacular and Brendan you catered to our children and made sure they were having fun (safely) which was such a task since we have daredevils at time. Endless thanks to you both. You were amazing! Love you guys and wish you the best! Miss you already!

  • We had a great time. Rumba was in very good shape. The layout of the boat was perfect for our group. We took advantage of the roomy flybridge. The lounge area on the bow was nicely cushioned. The staterooms were comfortable and the AC and plumbing all worked perfectly.

    Captain Brendan was terrific. He was very quick to understand our interests and come up with an itinerary that met them. Prior to the charter we expressed interest in getting us all out on kayaks and they came equipped with three inflatable kayaks that we enjoyed in several anchorages. Brendan gave us lots of opportunity to take the helm and sail Rumba, which we enjoy doing. He took us to several pretty snorkeling spots. He anticipated our every need and interest.

    Chef Karen was terrific as well. All of the meals were excellent. I was amazed at how we had fresh baked muffins every morning. In our preference sheet we expressed interest in fresh local sea food and Karen served us delicious local lobster tails, buttery sea bass and other terrific meals. All of our food and beverage preferences were met. The boat was fully stocked with the beverages we asked for. Brendan’s drink-of-the-day was highly anticipated and enjoyed at cocktail hour each afternoon.

    Brendan and Karen were delightful and fun to spend the week with. We highly recommend them and Rumba. Should we return to the Virgin Islands next season which is a distinct possibility, we will want to be with them and on Rumba again. Thanks for another great boat and crew selection for us.

  • Chris & Mandy

    Karen and Brendan,
    Where do I begin? We have been so looking forward to this trip. We knew I would be awesome. We already knew we loved the USVI’s but never did I imagine how amazing this trip would be with the two of you. I cannot imagine doing another charter without the two of you. Not only did you give us top notch service, but watching the two of you as a team was beautiful. You are a perfect match and work beautifully together. Can I say the ‘two of you’ one more time lol :).

    Thank you for making this trip one that we will be talking about for years to come. The trip of a lifetime. We are already looking forward to rebooking with you in 2 years. Whatever boat you are on, we will be there.

    And I hope you’ll agree that we are leaving with you as not just captain and chef, + Chris and Mandy, but as friends. Next we see you in Michigan. There…I’ve asked like 5 times, not you much come visit. Forever grateful –

  • I think about our adventures daily and get lost in daydreaming about the sensory overload! The beautiful surroundings, the gorgeous sunsets, the fabulous accommodations, the laughter with great friends and YOU! From the time we set sail to the end of the trip, you made our trip special and most fondly memorable.

    Thanks for the food, the laughter and the care and especially the wonderful drinks of the day. I cant tell you how much I especially appreciated how Brendan always told me “good job” as I gracefully (not!) entered and entered the dinghy. This week was full of memories we will never forget and hopefully we can do it again in the future. Karen makes the best desserts!

  • Yvonne

    Hi Elise, I just wanted to tell you how much we appreciated all you did for us on the boat. The meals were absolutely delicious! We’ve been inspired by you to cook more for our boys. My husband just went to the grocery store a few minutes ago and doing a version of your chicken. You worked tirelessly each day and it didn’t go unnoticed. I hope you’ve gotten some rest today. Thank you again for everything!
