I traveled to St. John with my sister and friend for a girls' trip in early September. I read the reviews here and really liked the photos and what people had to say. When I emailed them to see if they were still sailing in September, I got a quick response and we were booked on the Jost sail. I was pretty psyched about it.
We got a call a few days prior asking if we would mind being picked up a bit earlier because they had to travel over to the Ritz Carlton in ST.....not a problem....we were able to get on the boat early and get comfy. Lucky for us, there were only 4 others joining us. We pretty much had a private sail!
The boat is fun with several bean bag chairs up front to relax on. Shortly after we were underway, wer were offered cocktails, banana bread, fruit and cheese and crackers. We cleared customs, snorkled at Thatch Caye, went to Smugglers Cove on Tortola and then on to Jost. We had several hours at Jost, I think because we got there early due to motoring and not sailing. The beach is gorgeous, the Soggy Dollar Bar was fun too. We hung out and swam and relaxed......I didn't want the day to end!
When it was time to head back, Capt J hoisted thed sails in an attempt to sail. Unfortunately the wind did not want to cooperate. He tried! No biggie, the breeze felt great once we started moving.
All in all, this excursion was the highlight of our trip. The crew was friendly and accomodating, and being such a small group, we got extra attention. I would highly recommend Kekoa and I hope to have the opportunity to sail with them again. Top notch and awesome!
