Captain: Joe Rosello
Captain Joe grew up just 3 miles from the US's top-rated Clearwater Beach enjoying the typical Florida lifestyle of fishing, camping, boating and beachcombing. When he was old enough to breakaway from the Florida coastline he found himself bouncing around the Caribbean from Mexico to the Lesser Antilles in search of crystalline turquoise water several times a year. The sea was always calling him. In 2009, Joe had the opportunity to captain a sailing vessel in a club race and was hooked immediately. In the last 10+ years, he has raced sailboats ranging from 21-feet to 52-feet. Joe says, “The ability to harness wind and wave to get to a destination without the means of mechanical propulsion is intoxicating and rewarding.” He now holds his USCG 100-ton master license with sailing and towing endorsement and his BVI Boatmaster in addition to his STCW, CPR, and first aid certifications.
Always the life of the party, Joe's infectious laugh can be heard across the room! With the perfect balance of comedic relief and professionalism, it was 2005 when Joe’s wife Mandy first noticed Joe at work because of his ability to lead his staff with high spirits in the most stressful situations. Within a few months, they took their first trip together to Puerto Rico, unknowing what path was laid out for them. Scuba diving (both are certified open-water divers), sailing, and land exploration took them from Alaska to Europe, South America to the South Pacific, but most frequently to Florida's backyard, the Caribbean. Since music and food are a universal language, you can find Joe and Mandy on the dance floor, at a communal table, or around an acoustic guitarist making conversation with others. To them, the most rewarding part of travel is the people met along the way which turn into life-long friendships.
After years of traveling throughout the Virgin Islands, they married on St. Thomas in 2013. On a 2015 vacation to the British Virgin Islands, Joe and Mandy met a fellow sailor, and the idea hatched of pursuing their own sailing adventure full time. The corporate grind of deadlines and politics was about to be behind them, as Joe and Mandy sold everything, quit their jobs, took command of Kuma Too, and never looked back. They have sailed Kuma Too over 15,000 nautical miles throughout Florida, the Bahamas, Atlantic Ocean, and Caribbean Sea and the meter is still running.
Offering sailing charters along the West Coast of Florida, Joe and Mandy's love of hosting guests on board Kuma Too grew, and they were ready for the next step. For their 3rd charter season, they headed south to the Virgin Islands! Joe enjoys sharing his love of the sea and sailing with guests, and Mandy looks forward to sharing her love of cuisine!
Growing up landlocked, Mandy has always had an adventurous soul from rock climbing to skydiving and with dreams of traveling the world, even as a child. She began scuba diving with her dad at age 15 which unlocked a whole new world of travel and cuisine! On every trip, she tried new dishes and flavors which would eventually shape her own culinary skills. Bringing global influences into her dishes, Mandy most enjoys creating unique sauces and seasonings. Although Joe is the Captain of Kuma Too, Mandy holds her OUPV Captain's License, STCW, CPR, and first aid certifications as well and is fully competent in safely handling their 47-foot floating home.
With 15 years in general aviation, both Joe and Mandy have traveled around the US for work, but the Caribbean kept calling. Their unique backgrounds with private and corporate aircraft included not only handling mechanical and fueling matters but also providing superior customer service to affluent passengers. They both have extensive experience coordinating major events at airports along the East Coast such as Nascar, NFL, MLB, NBA, and PGA championship games and yacht shows. Their organized manner and ability to multitask while placing safety above all else was developed over those years but is now a key element for their success in providing a personalized dream sailing vacation aboard Kuma Too.
Joe - thanks for all the fun times and great experiences. Thanks for playing with the kids and taking them tubing for hours.
Mandy - thanks for all the yummy food and delicious drinks of the day!
We promise to be back again! Love, Josh, Meg, Matt, Ben, and Drew

Additional comments on your charter?
This was an amazing vacation! My husband and I didn’t lift a finger. The kids had a blast with all the water activities (floats, tubing, knee boarding, paddleboarding & kayaking) and Josh & I were able to sit back and relax. We didn’t worry about cooking or cleaning up for any meals. Mandy provides ample snacks for my “growing” boys and did all of it with a smile on her face... even at 6am with my little one. Joe didn’t let our drinks hit the bottom and was the best “boat driver”. He found great snorkeling spots with a variety of marine life and colorful coral. Joe and Mandy have great communication and made our trip seamless. They even helped celebrate our anniversary and one of the boys birthdays. I appreciated all their efforts and we were super impressed. This boat is their home and they take great care of it.

Everything on board was awesome. Food was outstanding & they exceeded my expectations with dealing with our food allergies. Enjoyed the snorkeling & island hopping. Joe & Mandy did a great job in pointing out the highlights not to miss on land & in the water. Snorkeling @ the Indians was awesome. It's been awesome to have Mandy & Joe share their home. Their hospitality exceeded our expectations.

We hope you enjoyed your charter! We would really appreciate it if you would take a moment to complete this form. Naturally we hope that everything was perfect, but we also would like to know if there were any (small) problems. All comments are helpful!
When you arrived, your first impression of the yacht was:
Very clean and professional. Joe and Mandy had birthday decorations for me. Very sweet.
What did you think about your accommodation?
Cabins, beds, bathrooms: Clean and comfortable. Much roomier than expected.
Salon, cockpit, deck space:
Plenty of space. We rarely spent time inside the boat.
Was the boat kept clean during your charter (your cabins, the bathrooms/heads, your towels, bedding, the cockpit, the galley)?
We had twice daily maintenance and turn down service. We definitely felt spoiled.
Did you miss anything on board?
Like my dog or my socks? Not sure what the question means.
What did you enjoy the most on board?
On board the vessel or on our trip? I enjoyed sitting up front while sailing. The crew had constant attention to the sea life and commentary on the surrounding islands.
Please describe your Captain (professional/outgoing/friendly etc.)
Joe and Mandy have a genuinely outgoing disposition. They were professional, courteous and went above and beyond in EVERY aspect of our trip.
What do you think about your itinerary, the places and bays you visited and the activities you have done?
A great smattering of places to explore during our first visit. They gave us plenty of options and flexibility.
Please describe your chef (professional/outgoing/friendly etc.)
She went out of her way to accommodate many of us with dietary restrictions. Her food was gourmet and delicious, even with modifications. Mandy was always sure we were satisfied and had our plates full.
Please describe your meals (presentation, quality, quantity)
Beautiful presentations with each plate colorful and full. We always had plenty to eat. Most of what we ate was sourced locally and fresh. There was always food. We ate when we weren’t hungry. There were drinks and food at our beckon call. It was embarrassing how much we consumed.
Do you feel the meals and drinks reflected the requests you made in your preference sheet?
Did you receive enough information from us before your trip, was the description of the yacht and crew accurate?
Would you sail with us again?
Joe and Mandy are TOP NOTCH!! We didn't want for anything the entire trip! They really know how to make this a home. We cannot think of anything you could have done different or better! Your attention to detail, impeccable service and easy going personalities made it the perfect way to celebrate our anniversary. The small things, like our water bottles constantly being full, always having the snorkel gear ready or just the beautiful flowers and table setting, made a big impression!
Thanks so much, Joe & Mandy, for the best get away! It was fab!!
-Jay and Lara
We wanted to thank you so much for the most wonderful weekend. We really enjoyed everything about the trip. Your hospitality and catamaran were fantastic and the food was absolutely delicious. (Thank you for these recipes!). It was such a nice relaxing get away for us. We hope to do it every year! I hope you both were able to relax and rest a little before you launched your next charter.
Thank you again for everything!
Rhonda and John
Joe often went snorkeling with us at different spots or walked with us to an old rum distillery or the Bubbly pools. Other captains may have just given us general directions, but he went with us each time.
They were a delightful couple to talk with. They had a great depth of knowledge about the fun stops through the BVI’s. Their years of experience and tendencies instill great confidence that we would be safe at all times.
We highly recommend Mandy and Joe! They are delightful, have a very strong work ethic, take care of everything and it’s clear they enjoy what they do. We feel super fortunate to have had them as our crew!

We were very comfortable at night. Mandy and Joe gave us the option of air conditioning, but we preferred to just keep
the windows/ports open and enjoy the breeze.
