“Wonderful Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

Our family of 4 sailed on the Kekoa for the second time, having gone with them for the first time in April 2011. The crew was highly accommodating, and fun to be with. The boat is spotless and the snorkel gear is first rate. Having sailed on other charters before, the quality of the snorkel equipment, snacks and condition of the boat are clear signs of the pride the owners and crew take in their business. This is not always the case with other charters. We went on the full day sail to Yost van Dyke. It's fun to swim to the Soggy Dollar Bar on the island. If you've done that already, I would recommend the full day St. John tour as it makes two snorkeling stops instead of one and includes lunch.
The story of the Kekoa is fascinating and adds interest to an already enjoyable experience.

“Gorgeous Sunset Sail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

We choose to do the sunset snorkel sale while on our honeymoon in St. John. I have done a sail with Kekoa before so I know how great they are, but it was my husband's first time. He was super impressed by their all girl crew :) There was a lot of wind and the sea was a little choppy but the girls were great! They still found us a nice place to snorkel and we got some killer sailing in! We saw the most beautiful sunset of our whole trip. They also have an open bar with lots of selection and a lsoem great snacks that they serve up!

If you have not seen the sunset from a boat, you are truly missing out. Kekoa also does a day trip to Jost (BVI) but we couldn't fit it into our schedule this time. When we get back down there, this is the firs thing on our list!!

“Great day on Kekoa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

My wife and I took the Jost Van Dyke day trip during our first visit to St John last week. The boat was beautiful and the crew was great. They explained many details about the boat and the areas around the Virgin Islands. We even got to meet one of the owners, Jameson, that day. The snorkel spot they picked was calm waters with the some of the best coral I saw - better than anything off the beaches. Great day overall with the crew of the Kekoa.

“Highly reccomended!! We sailed to Jost Van Dyke and we did the sunset cruise.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012 via mobile

We had an amazon time on both escursions. The crew made the trip an even better experience. They were all very friendly and helpful and GREAT bar tenders!! We would reccomended this to everyone. We are getting married in April down in St. John and are going to be incorporating both sails into our itinerary.

Thank you for such an amazing experience. It was the highlight of our trip!

“Repeat customer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Love Kekoa! Our first sail was a private sail for my daughters 16th birthday with friends and family and we all had a Fabulous time. Second sail was an annual girls trip which was also a blast. Getting ready to book my 3rd sail aboard Kekoa and can't wait!
