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.
