Attraction Details
Owner description: Born to Rhumb is St. John's only Coast Guard certified, exclusively private 12 passenger motor vessel offering day trips to the British Virgin Islands or around St John. This 34' Maine built excursion charter boat has ample seating room for larger parties, and has a cabin and head below deck. We cruise at a speedy 20 knots and if seas get rough, this boat handles with ease and comfort thanks to a full keel and 440 hp diesel engine. We carry a fully stocked cooler, snorkel gear for all on board, and a great crew to make sure that your day is packed with fun and free of worry. Your group will not be mixed with other groups and you may choose your own itinerary or let us be your guide. First Mate Andi loves to guide snorkel expeditions and swim famous island beverages up to the beach for her guests. What could be better?

“Fantastic time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

In February (2013) we had the pleasure of chartering Born To Rhumb with our children, grandchildren and friends. At first I was concerned with how a 1 and 2 year old would do for the day. But, after meeting Shane and Andi I knew our day was going to filled with laughter and fun. Andi & Shane's experience and knowledge of the islands was evident from the moment we stepped on board. Our grandson fell in love with Andi and all the special attention she gave him. Our experience is one we will never forget. Should we return to the islands we would definitely charter from them again.

“Best Day Sail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

We loved our day sail on Born to Rhumb! Shane and Andi were great. We had a group of eight. My husband and I have taken several day sails thru the BVI, and this was by far the best. The boat was great as could get us where we wanted in a timely fashion but yet enjoy the sun and water experience. Shane and Andi were very attentive to our wishes for the day, and made the trip so much fun. Of course, I would expect nothing less from fellow Texans. We can't wait to get back to St. John to spend another day with them!

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Me and friends chartered for a day in the BVIs. Shane and Kate were the perfect hosts -- good information, amazingly friendly and relaxed, and took us to incredible spots. Next time we're there, we'll be calling Shane for a day on the sea!

“You will not be disappointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Shane, Andi and Katie....Thank you! We enjoyed two days aboard Born to Rhumb. I have to say it was the best part of our trip. The whole experience was top notch. Andi is amazing at handling all of the details of the trip. Shane and Andi are truly one of the sweetest couples I have ever met. Very laid back and so much fun. We stopped at several beaches on our trip and was just the perfect way to enjoy the Virgin Islands. We can't thank you guys enough for making those days memorable. We look forward to returning to St John and will definitely charter Born to Rhumb again!

“Excellent experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

We had a great time with Shane and crew. It was a very laid back experience with our 12 person group. They were helpful with us from planning the day to snorkeling to lunch at Morgan island and even helped with reservations after the day. It was definitely a day we will want to duplicate in the near future. Thanks again Shane we will see you next time we are in St John.
