Perfect evening! The crew is amazing, all ladies, safe and accommodating. Great views and fun. The story of the boat is like a movie with the photo book to emphasize the storm! Fun trip with friends.

Hi Beth we are planning a vacation to St John in February and interested in the full-day St John cruise on Kekoa. I had a couple questions that i could not find answers to in the reviews if you had a minute. 1. is a full-day too long. are you burned out by the end of the day? 2. was there enough marine life at the snorkel sites to be interesting? 3. does the boat disembark at any beaches to enjoy any of them? 4. is there anything you would change or do different? thanks in advance and thanks for your review
