Lovely lady who took our reservation, who advised us to take the kayak, hike, and snorkel tour opposed to the kayak an snorkel tour. I'm glad she did because the hike ended up being our favorite part. Thank goodness we were experienced kayakers because our tour guide kayaked at a very fast pace and left most of the group behind.... More

I had the opportunity to snorkel, hike, and kayak with guides Patrick and John Olive off of Honeymoon Beach on St. John. Both were very professional, informative, and made it a wonderful experience. They answered all my questions, and both have an impressive knowledge of the history and the flora and fauna on the islands. I would highly recommend these... More

My wife and I did the 3 hour EcoTour on July 3rd and had an amazing time. Devon was a great guide. Of the 11 people on the tour, 8-9 of us had no kayaking or snorkeling experience (my wife and I included) but we didnt feel uncomfortable at all. Despite the inexperience of the guests, Devon did not lose... More

We wanted to do something outside but off the beach. This was a great adventure for 3 hours. My son, husband and I went together. The trip allowed us to hike, snorkel and kayak. It was a fun day. We also learned a little about the island along the way.

We took the family on this tour and it was awesome. The guide we had was great, she took her time with us and showed us where all the best fish were. She even dove under water to take a family pic of all of us underwater. Kudos to her!!!!!

This was my favorite part of our vacation! This tour was wonderful! Our guide was so sweet and knew so much! She was great! We started on a kayak tour through Mangrove Lagoon. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. I was so busy looking around and taking pictures, I kept forgetting I needed to paddle. After the kayak tour we went... More

Awesome time!! All you need is sunscreen. Get the picture CD & you won't even need a camera. Devon was an awesome guide & great picture taker. She was knowledgeable yet so much fun. Thanks for a great adventure in St. Thomas. Be ready for a great workout with an amazing view :-)

Dillon (or Dylan ?) provided a great kayak, hiking, and snorkeling tour. We got a great educational experience and a hearty workout. It was just my husband and I on the tour so we got a little more of a one on one experience. We felt completely safe and were entertained the entire time. Since it was just us, Dillon... More

We just returned from celebrating our anniversary with an Eastern Caribbean cruise. We were fortunate enough to visit St. Thomas with VI Ecotours. It was a cruise excursion and the three-hour option. However, it was amazing. My husband loves to kayak and I love to snorkel so this was a perfect compromise and a way to do what we both... More
