Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, Keanna knew from a very early age that her future was on the water. Keanna has sailed throughout Southeast Asia, across the Indian Ocean, and down the coast of South Africa. She has worked in the Cayman Islands as a dive instructor, and in the British Virgin Islands as a skipper, where she logged thousands of miles teaching cruising courses, guiding dives, and running charters. During the summer, Keanna runs her own sailing company in Vancouver, BC – Venture BC. Keanna is always excited to give her guests a real hands on experience – letting you take the helm and adjust the sails. She will teach you sailing theory, how to navigate with paper charts, or happily take over while you sit back and relax. She looks forward to showing her guests the hidden gems of the BVI.

Marianne was raised with a deep appreciation for the outdoors, which led her to pursue a Bachelors of Science in Forestry, majoring in Natural Resource Management, from the University of British Columbia. Marianne has worked in Ecuador as a biology field technician, and in British Columbia as a Spotted Owl Biologist. She spent years immersed in the Canadian wilderness studying endangered owls and their habitat. When she wasn’t in the woods, she worked as an educator teaching school groups about ecology and biodiversity. More recently, Marianne has been working in the event industry, creating custom carpentry products for clients seeking a personal touch. Marianne is looking forward to sharing her knowledge about the local flora & fauna, as well as preparing her guests delicious meals and beverages.
Keanna is knowledgeable, experienced and professional but relaxed and friendly at the same time. She knew the best places to sail with the varying weather/wind conditions and I always felt safe, even while us newbies were taking our first attempt at the helm!

[Keanna] is fun, a great teacher, and will happily let you learn as much as you want or relax as much as you want. I would strongly recommend any of her trips or services whether you're looking for adventure, learning, or just relaxing in a beautiful setting.

...I have memories of that trip that I will always cherish because Keanna created an atmosphere that was friendly, patient, helpful and fun! She encouraged us to do all of the sailing, and that worked wonderfully because she was there guiding, teaching and keeping us safe.

Had the opportunity of a lifetime, I will forever cherish my time sailing with Keanna and her team. She is an amazing captain, host, and handy-woman... I would literally volunteer all my time to this woman, just to be able to absorb any amount of knowledge I can from her.
- Elisa R.
Keanna is a dream to learn from. Not only did we acquire all of the knowledge needed to sail on our own, but we had an incredible amount of fun doing it. At the end of the course, she was a genuine friend.
