Our family went on the half day afternoon sailing and snorkeling trip. We are a family of 5 with 3 children: 16, 20, and 22 years. We stopped twice to snorkel which was a fantastic experience as it was our first time. The crew was very helpful and experienced. The captain explained where we were going, what we would see, etc. She also told the story of the catamaran, which is an interesting one to tell! The snacks and drinks were perfect. The weather changed as we traveled but it was perfect for sailing. It was a great experience!

We did a day sail around St. John on the Kekoa. It was a fabulous experience -- the boat is clean and comfortable, our all-girl crew was super professional and pleasant, and the food and drink were well-prepared and abundant. When we first arrived, I was a little dismayed with how many people were boarding the boat. But the Kekoa is spacious and well-laid out and the crew was super efficient so my concerns were soon allayed. We visited several snorkeling spots, did some sailing, listened to happy music and drank rum drinks. Great day!

The crew of the Kekoa is fabulous making the trip exceptional. The sailboat is beautiful and comfortable, the drinks and snacks were delicious. We stopped to snorkel at a protected cove. I can't wait to return this year and do it once again.

Thank you for taking the time to post your 5 star review! We are very happy to hear your time onboard was memorable. As you now know we are one of the last family owned and operated businesses in St John and so reviews like yours help keep our business in a strong standing with the many other boat operations. Thank you again for sailing with us and welcome to the Kekoa family. We look forward to having you back some day soon. Thanks again.
