Our guides were great (Lauralee, Alex G and, Shaun), super informative and helpful. I loved that we got to see so many different elements of the island that you don't get to see normally.

I booked this excursion at part of a RCCL cruise tour with a friend. We were taught basic 2 person kayaking, snorkelling, and learned about the ecosystem of the mangrove and it's importance to the environment. No experience is necessary to enjoy this tour! First, we leisurely kayaked to part of the mangrove to see them up close, learn about... More

Yes, I like to write reviews and sometimes they are not flattering. But not this one, mostly. We were two couples who already like to Kayak, hike, and snorkel at home in Destin, Florida. We were on St Thomas in the mangrove sanctuary. We really enjoyed our guides. Jodi was a friendly font of humorously presented information on the ecosystems.... More

I would wear water shoes not flip flops. Worth every penny! Joan was a great host as well and took great photos and the cd of pictures is with the... More

My wife and I took this tour while on a cruise to St. Thomas. This was an amazing experience. Our team, (Nate, Lindsey, and Ji) went over and above to take care of the guests. The kayak trip was over crystal clear waters through the mangroves. Very easy trip especially for those with limited experience. Nice hike on the island... More

They kept it fun, safe and we learned a lot on the way. We even got hit with an unexpected storm. They directed us to safety & even towed a few of... More

My family went on the 5-hour St Thomas Mangrove Lagoon Cas Cay Kayak, Hike & Snorkel with lunch tour. We all agreed this was the best activity, by far, of our entire cruise vacation. We lucked out, and were the only ones who booked the 5-hour that day, so we essentially got a private tour. It was the first time... More

The rentals at Honeymoon Beach are the best bang for your buck on St. John. We have been to the island twice and the rentals from Virgin Island EcoTours allow you to try anything and everything at a bargain price. For $49 for the entire day you get: lounge chairs, floats, full snorkel gear, stand up paddle boards and kayaks.... More
