RUMAWAY GUESTS COMMENTS
Travis & Tara,
Thank you so much for a great and magical vacation thru the USVI. We loved the boat and can't stop talking about the food! You were so hospitable and granted our every request. The girls really appreciated all the toys and activities. We are so blessed for our time with you and your lovely boat!

How did you enjoy your cruising vacation?
We loved our trip with Travis and Tara. It was our first catamaran charter and we had high expectations going into the vacation. It lived up to and even exceed all of them.
How would you describe your Captain and crew? Were they Courteous? Helpful? Friendly? Attentive? Knowledgeable?
We can’t say enough about the crew. That was probably our biggest fear going into the trip. Could we get along with strangers for 6 nights. They quickly put that fear to rest from the first minute we met. They were engaging and excellent at making us feel right at home (on their home). They were great with our kids too. They shared interesting facts about the islands and the boat. And all with a smile on their faces.
Tell me about your meals? Did the menus meet your expectations? Did your Chef and Crew pay close attention to your Preference Sheets?
Tara is a great chef and the food was delicious and varied. She catered to both adults and the kids. The menu was exactly what we discussed and they had provisioned the boat with all our preferences we shared in advance. She made great daily cocktails at sunset which was really cool and fun.
How is the yacht? Is she clean and well-maintained? Were your cabins comfortable? Were the outdoor spaces adequate for lounging? Was there enough shade?
We loved the boat. It was clean and well-maintained. The cabins were comfortable and the air conditioning worked great. We liked the front lounging areas and they had plenty of comfy seating options. The back swim platform was great too. There was plenty of sun and plenty of shade depending on what you wanted.
What did you like most about the yacht? What did you like the least? What would have made you more comfortable or satisfied?
The boat had ample room for all of us both below deck and above. One of the cool things about Rumaway was all the toys they have on board. We used them all. Kayaks, paddleboards (including one stable and big enough for all 5 of us that was the envy of others all stops), a floating dock, water beanbags, cool rocking chairs and hammocks, a tube and sub-wing for the dinghy to pull. There wasn’t much we didn’t like. Perhaps a flybridge would have been nice, but we knew the boat didn’t have this going into the trip so it wasn’t a big deal for us.
How did you find the pace and the itinerary of your vacation?
The pace was great as Travis and Tara gave us plenty of options. They were active when we were active and gave us breaks when we wanted to relax. They never said no to any of our requests. The itinerary was a little of everything which is exactly what we wanted on our first charter experience. A trip to town for shopping, quiet secluded coves, great beaches and snorkeling, hiking, a cool party with live music at Christmas Cove.
Would you charter this yacht again? If not, please explain:
Yes, we can’t think of much that could have been better! We would highly recommend Rumaway and Travis and Tara.

Thank you for everything you've done for us these past 3 days. The food was top tier, sights & sailing a 10/10 and hospitality and service was way more than I could ask for. This will definitely be an experience I won't forget.

Thank you for the amazing service Mr. & Mrs. Travis! This will definitely be a trip I will never forget (especially the night paddle boarding)!
What an amazing week! From the amazing itinerary to the delicious meals, our week at sea was perfect! Travis is the ultimate guide and fact guru! Tara is the most wonderful chef and drink master! They went above and beyond from the snorkel spots to the most beautiful sunsets and sparkling lights. We can't wait to Rumaway again!

What an amazing week! From the amazing itinerary to the delicious meals, our week at sea was PERFECT! Travis is the ultimate guide and fact guru! Tara is the most wonderful chef and drink master! They went above and beyond from the best snorkel spots to the most beautiful evenings of sunsets and twinkling lights! We can’t wait until our next RumAway!
From the moment I stepped onto RumAway, I knew it would be an experience like no other! And it certainly did not disappoint!! We were greeted with smiles and hospitality. My husband, who stays curious, eagerly started exploring the Catamaran with Travis. While, Tara, took right away to making sure she had everything we needed or wanted in our cabin and aboard the boat. I loved sitting at the bow while we sailed from bay to bay! The water is so crystal clear that you could see the bottom of the ocean at a depth of 60+ feet! The views seem to have no end, along with the cool breeze and mists of salt water as the waves crest, make you realize that you are in paradise! It is truly fascinating to watch Travis sail with such ease. You can tell they are both passionate, experienced, and knowledgeable of the area. We started our days with sunshine, fresh coffee and breakfast every morning! We were so impressed with the meals Tara prepared for us! The Ahi Tuna nachos were a favorite that we have tried to mimic since we have been back home! We paddle boarded, which my husband is way better balanced than I am, apparently, and relaxed on the floating dock by the boat for hours. We ended our days with cocktails and the most breathtaking sunsets, that you have to see to believe!! We loved snorkeling at Maho Bay with sea turtles and tropical fish in every color! We even had our first experience scuba diving, since they are both certified and have all the gear! Travis took us for a fun ride in the RumRunner to the beach at St John for us to have lunch and pick up some souvenirs! The sightseeing is unmatched by any other place I have been! If you are considering a vacation to the Virgin Islands, this is the way to go!! I couldn’t imagine being cooped up in a hotel or Airbnb after experiencing the luxury of living on RumAway for a week! The sights, the smells, the salt, the food, the company, the laughs, the rum! Everything was absolutely perfect!! We are so grateful for Travis and Tara for giving us the vacation of a lifetime!! We will definitely be back aboard the RumAway as soon as we possibly can!! #letsrumaway
"RumAway voyage blew our minds. Who knew these land people loved to sail? This was an entirely new experience for us and simply relaxing and having a jolly good time with great attention and care from Tara and Travis was beyond what we could anticipate. Looking forward to more awesome adventures aboard this splendid boat with its spectacular crew!
