My husband and best friend booked Kekoa for 2/9/16. Best day sail we have had in the 22 years coming to the BVIs/USVIs. They boad is clean and spacious. The crew and captain best in class with genuine, light hearted attentive service. Professional AND fun, this day was just outstanding. Don't think twice, this was our best experience and highly...

We were lucky and there were only 14 people total on our excursion. The boat was very clean, the crew was very professional, and the painkillers went down easy! It was a great day sailing - can't say enough about the boat accommodations - loved that they had several large bean bags, making it a very relaxing day. The snorkeling... More

We went to Jost Van Dyke with the wonderful crew and vessel built by the captain and his brother. It was a terrific sail, starting with an excellent snorkeling experience and ending up with a visit to a beautiful beach in BVI. All of the crew are attentive , professional and a lot of fun. I would highly recommend the... More

My husband and I truly enjoyed our day out on the Kekoa! The crew made us feel safe and comfortable. The sailboat-catamaran is smooth, well equipped, easy to get on and off of and simply amazing to be on. The crew is attentive, informative and well qualified. They work hard and are very personable and a pleasure to meet. The... More

It's hard to reduce to words...First, a beautiful catamaran with everything you would want to set the mood for a peaceful, dream like sail. The captain Jameson is one of two brothers who built the wooden boat and ultimately rescued it from abandon at sea, a truly amazing story that is captured in a scrap book you can read through...

Four of us joined about 12 others for a day on Kekoa in January 2015. The captain, first mate and their assistant were all great, and all were female, btw. They were personable, professional (two were USCG-certified captains) and fun. It was neat to see them raising and trimming big sails by hand. Drinks were generously provided, and the onboard...

We celebrated my birthday on the Kekoa and I can't think of a better way to do it. Staff was wonderful, snorkeling was great and they even had me set of a small cannon. I totally recommend taking this trip. The fact that the captain built this boat with his brother makes it all the more special.

My wife and I did the day sail to Jost Van Dyke. We showed up in the knick of time, 7:52. No problem here. :) The entire trip was very well organized and continued seamlessly to the passengers. The crew gelled well together and made sure everything went smooth. The snorkeling was average, but that's not the main reason we... More

I had the great opportunity to sail with the Kekoa and her amazing captain and crew on Wednesday, January 20, 2016. My party of 4 was lucky enough to get on an excursion that apparently only happens once a year on the Kekoa. It was a 3 hour sunset cruise that had the band, Sol Driven Train, performing during the... More

If you want to be on the best boat in St John, with the best captain in St John, with the best crew in St John and have more fun than anyone in St John- than this is the vessel for you. The Kekoa is a big bodied Catamaran that gracefully ushers you through the picturesque views of the Virgin... More
