We've been to STJ dozens of times, and Kekoa is by far the best charter out there. The crew is amazing, Jameson the captain will do anything for his guests, and the black sail is a welcome change from the typical power boat tours. Will definitely be on Kekoa again soon!

It was a cloudy day, with not much wind, but with large swells. We had to motor most of the day and one couple got very sea sick. The snorkel spot at Belongo Cay was OK, but not more. The cost and time consuming process to go to BVI (Jost Van Dyke) is not worth it. Food was great at... More

This was our first time on the Kekoa. The ship was beautiful, the crew very helpful knowledgable and pleasant. I understood that we would be snorkeling - which was our first stop. I was disappointed that the snorkeling was only for 40 minutes, it was cold because it was before 9:30 in the morning, and it was right off of... More

We went on Kekoa with our three daughters (15, 13 and 10). We loved the all girl crew (Sarah, Amber and Jenna). They were so friendly and we felt perfectly comfortable in their care! It was a perfect way to start our vacation and I highly recommend it!

This private/pirate vessel won't let you down with it's black sails and cannon. Possibly the coolest CAT in the sea. Awesome all female crew, open bar and good snacks.We went to Jost Van Dyke and had lunch at ONE LOVE. Great lobster.Snorkeling gear is first class.

The boat and crew were excellent. We did a 4 hour cruise, with 2 excellent snorkeling stops. Could have done all day sailing on the Kekoa. Highly recommend this to all!

Seriously...run, don't walk to get a spot on this trip. We did a 1/2 day sail and had 2 snorkeling stops. The crew was organized, professional and FUN! They had great snacks and an open bar (after the 1st snorkel stop). Great tunes playing. Very relaxing, beautiful, breathtaking trip. A must if you are on St. John!

The crew, the boat, the islands, the experience.... all second to none. Our family has enjoyed the trip to Jost on two different trips to St. John. This a "must do" excursion. You will not be disappointed. The crew goes over the safety instructions, then you snorkel at a reef you can only reach by boat. From there, it is... More

We boarded the Kekoa for a half day sale on our last day of vacation. The crew was very friendly, fun and professional. We were a party of 34 and there was plenty of room on the boat. We snorkeled for about an hour or so and by the time we got back on the boat the crew had laid... More

This is a must-do while on St. John. We did the full day sail to Jost Van Dyke, which we would definitely recommend. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable from the moment you step on the boat. We drank painkillers all day and enjoyed the views from the huge beanbag chairs- try to get one of these when you... More
