My wife and I had the privilege of doing a 1/2 day snorkel trip on the Kekoa this past week. This was our 2nd time aboard with Jamison and his crew and our experience was just as fantastic as our 1st trip in January 2013. Kim and Dylan were on deck with Jamison and did a wonderful job for everyone... More

We did a half day sail and stopped twice for snorkeling. Once off little st. James and once at Christmas cove. Kim and the brothers who owe the boat were our crew. They were great. We were there off season was our group was small. We got to swim with turtle at Christmas cove, which was my favorite part. I... More

This was our second trip with the Kekoa and it did not dissapoint. They run a first class operation. We went on the snorkeling/sunset sail trip and had a great evening. The crew was knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. The boat is amazing. Thank you for a wonderful time.

Can't say enough good things about sailing with the awesome crew of the best sailing catamaran on the island - Kekoa. Enjoyed a full day experience including 3 snorkeling stops and lunch. The all female crew showed their skills on a perfect day for sailing with a 20 knot wind steadily blowing. Food and drinks were very good and your... More

We've been on a lot of catamarans, most of them as cruise line shore excursions. Some are decently run, some a little on the marginal side. This was hands down the best run catamaran we've been on... Friendly, efficient crew (yes, all female). Always walking around to see if anyone needed a refill or anything. Better quality snorkel equipment than... More

We had a great time on Kekoa! We were on the half day sail and especially loved that we got two snorkel stops, not just one! The crew was friendly and the snacks and beverages were top notch! We were a party of eight ranging in age from 9 to 70 and we all had a wonderful time! We can't... More

I have been going to the VI for 10yrs. Ive pretty much taken every tour there is. This was hand down the best. There was no rush rush rush touristy feel. It was an amazing day on the water and trip to snorkel and island hop. The crew was knowledgeable and FUN. And the boat is simply spectacular. Can't recommend... More

The ladies were so friendly and knowledgeable. The history of the boat itself is way cool. There were 24 on the boat and it was not crowded. Got to snorkel... More

The Kekoa sail was by far my favorite activity of my trip to St. John. Captain Jamison was very friendly and provided us a fantastic experience and adventure from St. John to J'ost Van Dyke. There was sailing, sun, snorkling, even stand up paddleboarding and we went to the most gorgeous beach I have ever seen. Delicious morning snacks with... More
