We enjoyed the (all female) crew--very helpful and engaging. We snorkeled in great locations, and enjoyed the beverages (the ginger beer was good for settling a slightly sea-sick stomach) and snacks. Communication was great, timing was punctual, and the environment relaxed and fun! I look forward to joining them again!

Absolutely the best cat to rent for a cruise. Back to back days on the Kekoa. Best crew around. Good spots to snorkel if you want.

This was one of the highlights of our visit! We took a snorkeling and lunch cruise to Jost Van Dyke and St Johns. This family owned ship was excellent. The captain shared his story of building this amazing boat and how he ended up sailing in the US Virgin islands and his crew was outstanding. Highly Recommend!

We did the Jost Van Dyke trip with Kekoa and must say this was the highlight o our trip. Hats off the the all female crew who couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. Questions were answered promptly and drink cups were always full. The history surrounding this vessel is amazing and if you chose to go out with these... More

My husband and I went on a sunset sail with Kekoa the week of May 10. We arrived at the dock around 5:15 and were out on the water around 5:30 or 5:45. Went we got to open water, the crew unfurled the sails and off we went! We sailed until 7:00. Drinks of all types were available and some... More

The kekoa is a beautiful ship. They offer several different trips. We did the full day sail and the sunset snorkel. Both were wonderful. If you pay with a credit card, they give you the option of adding on a 20% gratuity. Try to take cash for the tip because if you add it to the credit card, only half... More

We had an outstanding experience with Kekoa Sailing. The crew is knowledgeable, skilled, friendly, and they went out of their way to accommodate the special needs of our group and to make our trip fun. I highly recommend Kekoa Sailing to anyone who wants a first class sailing and/or snorkeling excursion on St John.

A day sail to the Soggy Dollar Bar on Josh Van Dyke in the BVI (passport required) or a sunset cruise ... We've done both several times and have totally enjoyed ourselves during each! Jamison is a great captain and he has a hard working and friendly crew. Kekoa herself is a beautiful, large and comfortable catamaran built by Jamison... More
