Jamison and Callie made our day on Kekoa FANTASTIC!! This was absolutely the highlight of our week on STJ, and if time had allowed, we would have booked another sail with them. This was recommended by several local residents and we could tell why! Will definitely do a trip every time I go back.

We went on their sunset sail and it was a delight. Crew made you feel at ease, service was great and learning history of the ship and the business was interesting. Beautiful vessel. They accommodated a 2 year old well as well as a niece with special needs that is confined to a wheel chair with grace and speed. They... More

We took a half day sail with our family. We made two snorkeling stops with sailing in between. On our day, we had an all female crew with two captains and a bartender/hostess. We had a large (16 people of 22 total on board) and varied group (70's to 2 1/2), and they handled all of us wonderfully. They started... More

IT was the most memorable experience of the entire trip! The staff totally caters to you, you can use their great equipment for snorkeing so you don't have to lug yours to the boat. The food was fresh, the sound track fabulous. You leave the dock with raggae music, fresh fruit and snacks, then snorkel and the music keeps getting... More

We took the Kekoa to Jost Van Dyke. This was my favorite day on the island...most relaxing day ever. They handled customs and paperwork very efficiently. I'm not sure that it could have gone any smoother or faster! Definitely worth it!

We did the full day sail in the waters around St. John. First, the boat is beautiful. The brothers told the story of its creation and directed us to the scrapbook to see more. We sailed as a couple with mostly other families with teenagers. It is not a party boat- though they do open the bar. Each snorkel stop... More

The Kekoa is AMAZING!! Little did I know before we boarded the Kekoa that I would be engaged by the end of our trip! My parents private chartered the Kekoa July 6th, 2015 for our group (there were 12 of us total). We LOVE Sandy Spit & I knew that the island was our first destination for the day, followed... More

While cruise ships want to pack these catamarans to full capacity, Kekoa wants to manage its guest satisfaction with plenty of room to lounge and a crew to care for your every need. The captain built his own ship and takes pride in how it looks and rides. The fresh fruit was great and plenty of handcrafted drinks. The Caribbean... More

This is the 5th time on the Kekoa. We had an amazing time as usual. The crew is so accommodating and friendly. They know the best places to visit and give you plenty of time to enjoy them. Thank you guys for everything you do.
