We took this as a excursion off a cruise ship. Small "taxi train" ride to location about 20 minutes, then we were put in the reliable and fun hands of our three tour guides. All are highly knowledgeable of the area and are there to keep you safe but give you their experience. Kayak trip was not difficult and not... More

Lisa and Erin led us on a beautiful kayak trip through the mangrove swamps, to Cas Cay where rocky formation make a dramatic splash and pirates once trapped unwitting prey. We survived a rainstorm and my kids won the hermit crab race. If you like kayaking and snorkeling, this is a great experience.

We booked the kayak and snorkel tour. Our guide was Shaquil (sp?) and he was awesome. We learned a lot about the fauna and the ocean animals during the tour and it was very relaxing.

This was a wonderful time. We took a taxi to the location and it took about 15 minutes to get there. The taxi was an open air thing that picked up right at the cruise ship terminal. It cost very little. It took us straight to the tour location. Our guide was Josh and he was full of knowledge. There... More

We took the kayak\snorkel historical tour of Hassel Island today and these tour leaders were spectacular. From taking good care of us as first time kayakers, to great historical information and answering questions about contemporary Virgin Islands economy and politics I highly recommend this tour and Jai and Nathan. Plus they were generous with their time and extended the tour... More

We took this tour as an NCL excursion from our ship, Norwegian Breakaway on January 8 (we must have been with the previous reviewer!). After taking a boat from the ship in St, Thomas over to St. John, we met up with our tour guide Travis aka Hair Bear when we arrived. There were 15 of us on this hike.... More

Take this excursion. You will not be disappointed. It was beautiful. Our guides, Jake Walther and Josh Dillahunty, were very knowledgeable about the wildlife, ecosystem and the inner workings of plantae, sea life and underwater environment. You may learn a few things! Kayaking was easy for beginners. They take time to help beginners, never condescend. They listen, encourage questions and... More

This excursion was the highlight of our Southern Caribbean cruise on the NCL Breakaway. Travis was engaging, informative, and respectful of his group of middle age hikers. Thanks for a great experience, "Hair Bear"!

This was a cruise excursion through the Norwegian Getaway out of Miami, that visited St Thomas on Wednesday, 07 January 2015. We had a nature hike from where the boat left us off at St John to this gorgeous beach with beautiful scenery of the islands. "Hair Bear" (or Travis) was a great tour guide and we stopped along the... More
