“Book it”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

We sailed on the Kekoa for a sunset cruise on our 3rd night of vacation, 5/19/14. The boat is very nice. The crew were perfect. Very attentive with the drinks and very informative. The music was great. The drinks were as good as any bar in Cruz Bay. Make sure to check out the photo album of the amazing journey of the Kekoa. We couldn't have been happier with this boat and drew. Insane views of the island and YVD, Tortola and Lavonga. Amazing sunset view as the captain pulls the boat around to head back to shore. Everybody on the boat was having a great time.
Next visit to St. John we are going to book them for a BVI excursion and you should too.

“Excellent day trip!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

If not the best, definitely one of the best day trips we've ever taken. We did the full day, 3 snorkel stop trip. Sarah and Amber were fantastic, we lucked out with a small crowd (only 4 couples), and good winds so we got to spend a lot of time under sail. It was so relaxed, and Sarah and Amber were full of great information. The boat is beautiful and comfortable. We did have to run around some rain storms but that was no big deal and Sarah did a great job of picking spots to avoid the rain. Good lunch and great drinks and snacks.

I highly recommend the Kekoa. I liked it so much I even bought one of their comfy sweatshirts, and I never buy "gear" from excursions/hotels/etc.!

“Jost Van Dyke”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

My husband and I took the morning trip to Jost Van Dyke and loved it. We've been to the USVI once, but never BVI until this trip. Kekoa is a big boat, so it was very comfortable and did not make me sea-sick (I definitely have a weak stomach). We left from Cruz Bay and snorkeled on the north side of St. John for about 45 minutes, then headed over to the BVI. They check in to customs for you, so we hung out on the boat and ate snacks until that part was done. After we were clear, we headed over to White Bay and anchored off shore. No dock here, so we swam to shore for lunch. Make sure you have lots of cash...especially if you want drinks. It was expensive for lunch! Sailed back to Cruz Bay and were done with customs and heading back to the villa by 3 pm, which is perfect timing to shower, take a nap, and get ready for dinner. Overall a great day trip, and we will probably make it part of our yearly itinerary!

“Great Boat, Trip and Crew!!!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

Had a wonderful trip to the BVI on the Kekoa. The crew was great and with the boat being so big everyone had plenty of room to move around. They also had bean bags & hammocks as seating options which was pretty cool. Of course, the trip itself to BVI is just wonderful. White Bay Beach is the prettiest beach I have ever seen. This is the second sail kat we have been on to the BVI and this was by far the best.

“Best adventure on St John”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

We had a great time and truly enjoyed the trip to the Soggy Dollar. Worth every penny and we will definitely take the same cruise next time we visit St. John!
