Sailed to Jost Van Dyke on Kekoa. This is a must-do activity if you're on St.John. We have done this trip every year for about 4 years now. The crew is very friendly and takes great care of guests. Jost is beautiful. Really can't say enough about the whole trip. Looking forward to doing it again next year!

Luckily been on Kekoa several times but this is my first half day sail. Again they didn't let us down!! The crew was once again phenomenal, the choice of snorkel sight was outstanding, the allotted time for snorkeling was ample, the snacks were yummy. The drinks were flowing. The music was fun and when we got a small little sun... More

Just as fun as the first time. This boat has an amazing story and it's just beautiful. If you are looking for a day trip, please choose Kekoa. Madison, Amber, and Jamison are fun and willing to share information about the islands. We had a beautiful day on Kekoa and a delicious lunch. Thank you! See you next time.

My husband, kids (13 and 8) and I took the Jost Van Dyke trip last Friday and it was a highlight of our holiday in St. John. From start to finish, being on Kekoa was a wonderful experience. It was a full day yet felt relaxing and special. Captain Jamison, Amber and Zoe were knowledgeable, helpful and kind. We loved... More

We loved it so much, we went twice! The first trip was a day trip to Jost Van Dyke. The bot showed up right on time and we were underway quickly. Captain Kim, First Mate Katie and second mate Zoe kept us safe, entertained, fed and content with the beverage of our choice all day long. Our snorkel stop was... More

Thank you Captain Kim, Zoe and Taylor. We had a blast in October when we sailed with you. Kara and I had dreamed about taking a trip on Kekoa for several years and we were not disappointed. My wife was feeling a little under the weather from many dark and stormies the night before, but the crew really help her... More

We did the Jost Van Dyke Trip as part of our Honeymoon outing. My only wish was that we had a chance to do a bit more snorkeling. The ride was smooth despite the trade winds. Highly recommend.
