Jameson and crew sets the bar high for all others. The day cruise to Jost was absolutely amazing. Would go back again tomorrow if we were there. Accommodations, snacks, drinks and high end snorkel gear was all top notch. If you go with anyone else you are missing out. The history of Kekoa, the build, the rescue and current life... More

AWESOME day!! Beautiful boat! Fabulous crew. Captain was great. Had music at his fingertips to fit the moment. Hilarious!! Plenty of comfy seating for everyone. Snorkel lesson 101 as needed. Took care of customs as needed. They were the best. I would definitely sail with them again!!!

Extremely relaxing day for my wife, two kids (13 & 10), and I. Impeccable customer service by the captain and crew. The food and drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) were outstanding. We sailed on the full day St. John sail, and despite high winds, Captain Jamison found some quiet snorkeling spots for everyone. The snorkeling equipment was very good quality too!... More

We took a day trip including a snorkel and sail over to Jost Van Dyke. The day was picture oerfect, the crew was fantastic and we had a wonderful time. Our group of 10 was celebrating a 50th birthday and I brought pirate party favors and costumes as a surprise. The crew rolled with our theme playing pirate music and... More

If you decide to take a sailing expedition, I HIGHLY recommend going with Kekoa. Jamison, the builder of this beautiful boat, and his First Mate, Kim go above and beyond all expectations! The service was excellent, their snorkel equipment is top quality, the snacks and drinks onboard are so delicious and they are super cool people to hang out with.... More

Awesome experience from the minute we stepped foot on the boat. Jamison was our Captain (also co owner with his brother) and Kim was our mate (She's also a captain). Snorkeling with much better equipment than the other guys. Saw a loggerhead. Only up to a maximum of 30 folks onboard, which is much better than others. We only had... More

We first did the full day trip to Jost van Dyke with our 2 boys and had so much fun. It's super relaxing. Captain Jamison and his crew are great! The catamaran is beautiful with plenty of space. Love the fact that Jamison and his brother built the Kekoa. The story of how they sold it and became owners again... More

From the moment we stepped foot on the Kekoa we KNEW we were going to have a GREAT TIME! Captain Jamison and Brenia were so welcoming. Somehow or another we lucked out by having our party of 9 in addition to one very nice fella, Lee on our snorkeling and boozing adventure. With a few thrill seekers in our group,... More

The staff were so nice and friendly. My husband and I took the sunset cruise. The water was beautiful and seeing the other islands along the way was breathtaking. The ladies stopped the engine and let the sails out. open bar and light bites were included.

We took our very first sail from STJ on Kekoa during our fourth visit to paradise. Perfect weather. The staff was very attentive throughout the trip. Very friendly and professional Captain Jameson and first mate Brenya. After our departure from Cruz Bay the staff hooked us up with terrific snacks and beverages which were available anytime. We headed over to... More
