Keanna has been sailing all her life. Growing up on the coast of British Columbia, she fell in love with the ocean. So much so, that she has worked hard to make sure she could have a lifestyle surrounded by water.

Keanna holds a Master of Yachts Unlimited certificate, Instructor qualifications and is a certified Padi Dive Instructor.

Keanna has been fortunate enough to sail through many seas – she has sailed around many parts of the Caribbean, the Hawaiian islands, California’s coast, and of course, all throughout beautiful British Columbia’s waters. In 2014, Keanna took part in a college program aboard a 112 foot schooner sailing through Indonesia, across the Indian Ocean, and down the coast of South Africa.

Keanna has worked in the charter/tourism industry for the past seven years – from Vancouver, BC, to the Cayman Islands, the British Virgin Islands, and back again to BC.

Keanna loves sharing her passion, not only for sailing, but for all water sports and exploration of new places. She can’t wait to meet you!
