My name is Rosie and I am the admiral of Saltwater Taffy. I love to sail and am thrilled to share that joy with my guests. I have 20 years of service industry experience so helping our guests is in my nature. My husband Brad is an ex Marchant Mariner with 18 years of safe ocean transiting experience. Christian our 12 year old son is an avid sailor, lego architect and superhero aficionado. Our family started this company in 2018 as way to spend more time together and to share our love of sailing with people like you. Whether it’s a spirited day sail, a hike through the National Park or a secluded beach you seek our family will make it happen. Book a trip with us, and we promise you won’t regret it.

    Rosie, Brad and Christian are such a warm, welcoming family. They opened up their home to us and were so accommodating. Rosie whipped up all kinds of drinks for us (we asked, she delivered) from pina coladas to cocunut mojitos to painkillers it was all phenomenal. She also made a fantastic taco lunch - our family has several dietary restrictions including vegetarian and she prepped the meal so everyone could enjoy. Brad took us out snorkeling to see the sea turtles and to a private beach. We were able to set our own pace and never felt rushed. Overall, wonderful trip with wonderful people. It was one of the best excursions we took as a family, Would highly recommend!

    Can't recommend sailing with Rosie and her family enough on Saltwater Taffy!! An absolute must when visiting St. Thomas. Amazing itinerary, food, service, and all around experience. This was our favorite day of our vacation.

    We highly recommend this charter experience! We were celebrating my husband’s birthday. Rosie, Brad, Christian, and Boatswain planned a wonderful day. We even had birthday cheesecake! You can’t go wrong with their charter. We’re counting the days until we can do it again.

    BEST trip EVER!!! My husband and I did an overnight trip with Brad and Rosie on the Salt Water Taffy. Brad and Rosie are both experienced and cautious sailors as well as wonderful hosts. We felt safe and were very comfortable on their boat. We slept on the saloon bed which was comfortable and right next to the bathroom. Rosie is an excellent cook and bartender and kept us well-fed; We also enjoyed several of her delicious libations including painkillers and bloody Mary’s. Her homemade bagels fresh from the oven were out of this world! Brad and Rosie both have a vast knowledge of the area and showed as many sites in Saint Johns national Park. They are both very nice people and good conversationalist. We enjoyed getting to know them and felt welcome on their boat. I highly recommend them and would definitely book with them again without reservation.

    Rosie, Brad, and Christian are awesome! The Saltwater Taffy is a beauty and really great for a day out. Our group had an excellent day of sailing, snorkeling, and hanging. Rosie makes awesome food and drinks. We definitely recommend to families or small groups of any kind. Rosie and the crew are so friendly and welcoming of whatever you want your day to look like:)
