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.

Had a wonderful day on Kekoa at the end of June! The boat is beautiful, the captain and crew run a top notch operation. The vibe is casual, friendly, safe. It was so much fun once we got underway, a nice snorkel stop then on to Tortola to clear customs. The crew zipped into port while we relaxed on board,... More

We took this sail with a group of 55 to celebrate our friend's wedding week! The Kekoa is a stunning boat. The team was amazing, helpful, and enthusiastic. We had a blast, stopped by a nice snorkel spot and with all those people on the boat still felt like we had a place to relax and soak in the sunshine.... More

The people that run this operation really care about their customers. I was so impressed really with everything. They are professional from the booking to the snorkel equipment you use and the large metal cups of whatever you like during your trip out to the ocean. It's an hour of really good snorkeling and did I say how great the... More

We sailed 3 different excursions with Kekoa during our stay.The catamaran is beautiful, the staff exceptional. The boat was spacious and uncrowded. The sailing was blissful and the snorkeling was awesome
