About Us

Thank you for visiting Island Kayak Sailing Adventures (IKSA)! I’m John Dog (but please call me JD) and along with my buddy Aron run IKSA. I’m a purebred “coconut retriever” and shelter dog. I’m proud to be IKSA’s Chief Canine Officer (CCO), Chief Communications Officer and company mascot. A shelter dog and a purebred “coconut retriever”, I’m proud to be IKSA’s Chief Canine Officer, (CCO) or Chief Communications Officer and company mascot!
I love entertaining guests of all ages, from kids to adults. My role is to share my love of the sea and ensure you have a superlative on-water experience!
Like me, Island Sailing Kayak Adventures was born on St. Croix. IKSA has a tremendous breadth of experience sailing and knowledge of coastal ecology. Our team includes local yacht club ex-instructors, club swimming teachers and biologists.

Here at IKSA, we do things a little differently. Please, inquire, engage and challenge us with your impressions, your insights, your ideas about our island.
We consider ourselves participants in YOUR Adventure, as your guest, we gain insight and experience the wonder of St. Croix through YOUR eyes! It’s an amazing and reaffirming way of appreciating the natural beauty we’ve been blessed with.
