Kuma Too Crew Profile
Growing up in Florida, Joe has always loved the ocean, and after his first visit to the Caribbean in 2005, he wanted more out of life. He already had extensive experience working with private and corporate aircraft, including handling mechanical/fueling matters and catering to high -profile clientele. As a Florida native, he was intimately familiar with boating, and in 2009, Joe began racing sailboats with the Dunedin Boat Club. All of this made him uniquely qualified to serve as a Captain/host and chief mechanic which lead him and his wife, Mandy, to purchasing Kuma Too.
Taking command of one of the faster production boats, Joe gets a thrill every time he unfurls the sails. He says ´You can feel Kuma Too effortlessly catch the wind, as she instinctively get up and goes.´ They have sailed Kuma Too 12,000 nautical miles with passages throughout Florida, the Bahamas, the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea.
Choosing to make sailing a career, Joe and Mandy packaged their 15 years worth of customer service and other experience and began offering all-inclusive sailing charters out of their hometown of Dunedin/Clearwater Beach, Florida in December 2017. After years of personal explorations throughout the Virgin Islands, they are excited to share their love of the island chain with charter guests.
Mandy met Joe in 2005 while serving as a Regional Customer Service Manager for a national general aviation facility. Mandy has always had an adventurous soul from rock climbing to scuba diving and with dreams of traveling the world, even as a child. As Joe´s passion for sailing grew, Mandy joined in the racing and soon discovered her own love of the sport. Although Joe is the Captain of Kuma Too, Mandy holds a Captain´s License as well and is fully competent in safely handling their 47-foot floating home.
Serving as the chef on board Kuma Too, Mandy is a self-proclaimed global food critic, bringing her internationally-experienced palate to every meals served. Providing elegant meals ranging from vegan to keto, Mandy is well-versed in many specialty diets. As foodies, Mandy and Joe look forward to sharing their love of cuisine with their guests.

Kuma Too Guest Reviews
Mandy and Joe are absolutely outstanding in every way. Since this was our second adventure on Kuma Too, it feels like coming back to visit with friends. We ate more in 3 days than we do in a week, and the food was absolutely fabulous! This is the most relaxing way to spend a weekend! If you need to ´unplug´ and reconnect and enjoy you favorite people - this is how to do it! The sailing was amazing; the island adventures were a blast. The berths were really comfortable and of course, with Joe and Mandy at the helm you knew you were going to be well taken care of & safe. We went with another couple who are great friends of ours -- they had a blast, too. Joe and Mandy even put up with us playing guitars, singing, and turning Kuma Too into a floating music studio - now that is hospitality!! It was the perfect 50th Birthday celebration!
It was no easy task planning a trip with our kids--ages 22, 20 and 11 year old twins, but once we booked a week-long cruise to the Dry Tortugas on the Kuma Too, we looked forward to spending increasingly rare time together. Joe and Mandy were outstanding. They accommodated vegan and vegetarian diets as well as a picky 11 year old. The food was amazing and we left with several recipes to try at home. They facilitated all of our water activities. We snorkeled at Ft. Jefferson, the wreck of The Windjammer off Loggerhead Key, and Woman Key and had many opportunities to swim off the boat and kayak. They made sure we were always comfortable, serving snacks and drinks whenever we needed them, making sure we had water to shower off at the end of our salty days, and cranking on the A/C at night so we all slept comfortably. When we had to alter our schedule because of uncooperative weather conditions, Joe and Mandy quickly found alternatives that actually made our trip even better. We spent an extra night at sea on the way down, but during that night we witnessed a pod of dolphins chasing flying fish alongside the boat under the moon and stars for over an hour! A spectacular scene that none of us will ever forget. I can´t say enough about this trip. As we cruised back, we all dreaded seeing land again. Not only was this an adventure of a lifetime, but also chance for us to reconnect and forge deeper connections as a family. Thank you, Joe and Mandy for a week of happy memories!!
My friends and I (six of us total) did a ten-day Christmas/ New Year cruise on Kuma Too. The trip was more than we could have imagined. To begin with, Joe and Mandy were the absolute most accommodating hosts ever. They catered to our individual needs- drinks, food, and comfort. The meals they prepared and served were five star restaurant quality. We all left a bit heavier than when we boarded! (The margaritas were pretty great, too!) They definitely need to create a Kuma Cook Book! Their professionalism and sailing expertise kept me at ease while we were under sail and being transported on the dinghy. I´ve only briefly sailed once before... but I never ever felt unsafe. Joe and Mandy were also very knowledgeable about our destination locations as wellFort Jefferson/ Dry Tortugas, Loggerhead Key, and Key West! So much so that when Joe toured us around Fort Jefferson, random people would stop to listen and ask him questions! I could go on and on about the awesomeness of our trip... a lot of the credit goes to Joe and Mandy. I highly recommend sailing with them! Looking forward to booking again for another adventure with them!
Sailing with Kuma Too and crew was one of the funnest, unique, top-notch experiences I´ve had. The boat is roomie enough for you to have your own space but also cozy enough to spend quality time with friends & family. Joe and Mandy where both friendly and personable but also very professional. They really make the boat feel like home for the time you are on it. Sailing is their passion and you can see it in the time and care they put into their boat and charters. They made sure that every detail was taken care of (every meal they made was fantastic) and all needs met for all guests. I wouldn´t sail any other catamaran!
Absolutely amazing! I had the opportunity to get away for a week from the hustle and bustle of life on land sailing up and down the gorgeous west coast of Florida. Captains Joe and Mandy Rosello were professional, attentive, fun, great hosts and overall ´good people´. They made my 1-week sailing experience on their beautiful catamaran, Kuma Too, absolutely unforgettable. The trip was full of beautiful sunrises and sunsets, amazing wildlife (I lost count how many dolphins swam alongside the hulls) and, of course, plenty of rest and relaxation. Additionally, I wanted to better understand the sailing ins and outs and both captains were very informative and thorough in explaining procedures and techniques. Such a great trip! I genuinely enjoyed my time on Kuma Too and wholeheartedly recommend their chartering services. They definitely deliver the services and priceless memories you deserve.
