My family and I were looking for something to do on the south side because of big swells on the north shore beaches. We took a lovely sail and then into the pristine Hurricane hole. We snorkeled the Mangroves which were lovely and very different from reefs etc. Snacks on the boat were anything exciting, but they were fine and... More

We went on a very enjoyable 1/2 day sail to go snorkeling. Captain Jimmy and crew Sara are very pleasant and engaging. We have been to St John 10+ times and love the snorkeling off the beach, but never went in the mangroves. Clear water, no muck, saw different stuff & fish than we see on the reef. We had... More

Captain Jimmy is so kind, knowledgeable, patient, laid-back, professional, fun and an overall great guy. He has taken 8 of us (including my 5 year old niece and 8 year old nephew) out the last 2 years. He was so patient with the kids and even let them sail!!! He is a great teacher! Kiote is a very comfortable boat... More

Captain and crew were excellent both times I booked this sail with a group. We were all thrilled with the experience and the service. Would highly recommend booking with Kiote if you are on St John and looking for a beautiful day sailing and snorkeling. We will be back!

We spent a day on the water during our vacation in the Coral Bay area during the last week of December 2016. Can't say enough about how great a day trip it was - sailing, lunch, snorkeling, beverages, lunch, etc. Perfect day thanks to Jimmy & Sara. We would recommend this excursion to anyone seeking an adventure that sails out... More

We spent a delightful 4-hours with Jimmy, Sara and the boat dog Mazie (brought along at our request) as the capstone to our week in St. John sailing and snorkeling in Coral Bay. Despite a few rain drops to start off the afternoon, we couldn't have been happier with the experience. We began our "best deal" cruise ($450 for up... More

We went out with Jimmy and Sara on the day after Christmas in 2016. The Christmas winds made for very pleasant sailing. Jimmy is a very laid back and experienced captain. The best snorkeling on the island was had by boat in the mangroves. Sara took us on a snorkeling tour once we picked up a mooring. We saw sooooo... More

Our day on the water with Kiote Sails was one of the highlights of our vacation! Captain Jimmy was very laid back and knowledgeable, and Sara was super sweet and an excellent snorkel guide. Jimmy sailed us out on the smooth water while he entertained my husband's questions about the boat and the area. Sara led us on a snorkel... More
