Our ATV tour lasts approximately 1 1/2 hours and covers 13 miles of tropical terrain. It begins by riding along the west end coast line before heading up into the hills. We make a stop at an overlook that gives you fantastic views of the north shore. As we continue, we make our way to the top of Mt. Stewart where you get amazing vistas of the surrounding area. We visit plantation ruins from the early 1800's where you get time to explore and take photographs. From there we descend through the Sub-Tropical Rain Forest before ending the tour at a Rainbow Beach.

Take an ATV tour with Geckos and you will find an excellent way to satisfy your need for adventure. After checking in at the office in Fredricksted, we headed off to Rainbow Beach to meet our guide. We spent a few minutes getting familiar with the machines just opposite of Rainbow Beach. We were traveling with our 27 year old... More

We enjoyed our ATV tour. Jamal, our guide, did a great job explaining about the sugar mill ruins. The ruins themselves were a really neat experience since we got to get up close and inside of the structure. The overlook of Cane Bay was stunning!

By far this was the best part of our honeymoon. It was an amazing experience and I recommend this to everyone who visits the island. The tour guide really knew what he was talking about and we learned a lot of information. The scenes were stunning. The ATV's were so much fun. I would definitely do this again. My husband... More

The ATV trip with Gecko's Island Adventures was great and so much fun! My husband and I rode our own ATVs which I highly recommend as the ATVs are so easy to ride. Most of the trails are in the mountains with little street driving. The trails were mostly dry, but I made sure to go through the puddles and... More

The ride itself was a blast, & it was so pretty to see the island from that perspective. However, it kind of felt that our tour guide didn't wanna be out there and was trying to hurry through the tour as fast as he could to get back to the shop and be done with us.

We just stumbled onto this place and decided to take a trip. It was a blast and the machines were great. They were not the cheaper ones that most tours put you on. The guide was knowable and we had a blast!

This was a great tour. The terrain was just the perfect amount of 'difficult. Lots of good climbing. You will get dusty and dirty so do not wear nice clothes. Sunglasses are a must because the vines and trees sticking out along the trail get you. If you have a 'Go-pro' def bring it on this one. The tour and... More

Great tour on an ATV. The guides were very knowledgeable and we had a chance to enjoy some great views from the top of St. Croix.

geckosatv, Owner at Gecko's Island Adventures, responded to this review

Gecko cancellation policies are clearly stated for both on-island guests and cruise ship passengers. In this case a 24 hour notice is required, failure to do so results in 100% OF THE RESERVATION FEE DUE. When records were checked this reservation did show the deposit had been processed, less than 24 hours notice was given, and while the deposit was... More

This is a great way to see some wonderful vistas of the island. The tour takes you on some streets and then onto some bumpy, steep portions which were fun to navigate. The tour guides don't overload you with info but there are a couple of stops and they talk about some of the history of the island. I wish... More
