“Excellent cruise, captain and crew!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

We had the opportunity and fortune to sail on the Kekoa yesterday. We spent just about a full day on the water stopping to snorkel off the waters of St. John, cruising, and visiting a few island beaches/bars including the well-known Soggy Dollar Bar.

Jameson and his crew were fantastic. Their professionalism, friendliness, and service were excellent. They were accommodating to us in every way. Being a group of people from mostly Charleston, SC, we had a special kinship with Jameson who built the boat with his brother - unknowing to us - in Charleston and, while there, lived lived around the corner from us.

I would highly recommend Kekoa Sailing if you are visiting St. Thomas. It will be one of your most memorable experiences both on the Kekoa and enjoying some of the most beautiful waters in the world.

“THE BEST !!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

The crew and captain were hard working, very friendly, and really appear to love what they do. We loved the "family business" aspect - it was like sailing with friends and enjoying the day as opposed to being herded through a process as with most large corporate businesses. Will absolutely look these guys up in the future for more sailing action! Loved it!!!!!

“Jost Van Dyke Sail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

The Jost Van Dyke trip was a great excursion. The crew was very friendly, and yet looked so natural at "work." Great drinks on the boat, they give you plenty of time on Jost to grab some lunch and hang out at the famous bars! It was quite windy on the day we sailed and the workers were all very excited to get the sails out. Once they were, it was an awesome feeling. Great boat Jamison!

“Best day of our vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

We had the most amazing full day sail aboard the Kekoa. The crew is clearly passionate about making it a perfect day for everyone. There were some weather changes, so the captain had us do a drift sail instead of what they had planned. We ended up seeing whales and sat watching them for about a half hour, so again the captain and crew adjusted our trip so we would still have enough time on Jost. They made the day feel really special and we can't wait to go back!

“BEST Time of Our Vacation!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

My best friend and I just returned from St. John, USVI. We spent a week at a fantastic resort - Gallows Point. We ate at terrific restaurants and visited the most beautiful beaches in the world, and snorkeled every single day. Every day was truly a 5-star day in paradise.

However, the absolute BEST and FUNNEST thing we did while on St. John, was to take a catamaran trip around the islands, that offered snorkeling in the some of the best spots, as well as open bar and the most adorable and professional female crew plus the boat mascot "Koa" - an adorable little - well, he looks like a black lab but we were told he was a "coconut retriever." Adorable little 8-week old puppy that received LOTS of love and attention from the kids on the cruise, as well as many of the adults.

We got on the catamaran and just could not wipe the broad smiles off of our faces for the entire cruise!!

We really just can't even find the words to tell you how perfect this catamaran cruise was, but we both agree that next time we visit St. John we are going out again - and probably for more than one day. GREAT, GREAT FUN - for friends, couples, or families.
