Our family of 7 did this activity as an excursion from a cruise ship. The kids are ages 11, 13 and 14, along with parents, aunt and grandfather. This was a fabulous family activity and everyone had tons of fun. The kids and adults are still talking about it days later! The guides (Jacob, Jodie and Javon) were super and... More

This was a really fun experience on St. Thomas. Although I was born and raised on the island, I had never had a chance to do this. I went leading a trip of a ten college students. It was amazing. Our guides Jody and Josh were great with the students, a few of whom had only limited swimming / snorkeling... More

Very knowledgeable and courteous guides. We kayaked around mangroves to get to an uninhabited Cay where we took a short hike and then did some shallow water snorkeling. Plenty of wildlife and sunken boats to look at while snorkeling. All the equipment used was in very good condition. (I feel like this is worth noting because there were some tours... More

Our tour guide Julie was excellent - super friendly and easy to talk to. My husband and I did the 2.5hr tour off of St Thomas - a kayak to and snorkel at Cass Cay. Julie was very knowledgeable and pointed out many interesting parts of the ecosystem and pointed out the species of fish (many!) we saw when snorkeling.... More

We booked the five hour best of Henley Cay and Caneel Bay - worth every penny! Johnson, our guide did a fantastic job of keeping us entertained and moving. We saw a couple of stingrays, turtles, tons of parrot fish, trumpet fish and whole bunch I can't even name. The kayaking was just enough to give us a work out... More

We had a great experience with Josh, Lauralee and Shaquan. They took us for a great kayak trip, hike and snorkel. They were very knowledgeable about the area and what we were seeing and doing. I highly recommend this excursion. We went with six children ages 12 to 19 and it was a ton of fun for all of us.

Before coming to St.Thomas, this is was one of our pre-booked excursions that the entire family wanted to do; and, it exceeded our expectations. We drove ourself to the office location for the 9:30am tour; and, it's a little shack off to the right at the edge of the water that has brightly colored signs. If you miss the 1st... More

My wife and I got very lucky in that we were the only people signed up for the full 5 hour kayak and snorkel trip so we got a lot of attention from our wonderful guide, Julie. My wife and I have experience in canoes but none with snorkel gear. Julie made it easy and fun. My wife is hooked!... More
