Just did a three hour kayak/hike/snorkelling tour of Hassel Island with Brenda at Virgin islands Ecotours. I have to say she was knowledgeable, friendly and very professional - especially when it comes to sustainability issues, knowing the land, history and the reefs. It was a great tour with a very skilled guide. In the water it was so much more... More

Alexander lead my friends and I on a three hour tour. He went above and beyond the call of duty. I'm a local and was fascinated by the history and biology that Alexander taught us. The diversity of fish was incredible (giant pufferfish, a spotted eagle ray, and baby barracudas).

Jake, our instructor was awesome. He is very sweet and is great with people. The tour wouldn't have been awesome without him. Thanks jake. The tour is just great. First kayaking and then the hike and then the best part is snorkeling. Jake took beautiful pictures. Definite recommend this place.

This was one of the coolest tours I have been on. My cousin and I booked the tour to snorkel, hike and kayak and we had a great time. Our guide Josh and the photographer Alexander was completely wonderful and so funny. My cousin normally doesn't do any water activities because he really can't swim, but they put him at... More

My girlfriend and I decided to visit the USVI for our first time and wanted to see some of the nature and sea life while there. Our resort offered tours on St Thomas, where we were staying, but we really wanted to see as much as we could and had heard great things about St John's. We found this tour... More

We scheduled our ecotour through the mangroves in St Thomas during the off season and happened to be the only ones on the tour! My wife and I are experienced snorkelers but it was an easy trip, so experience is not necessary. Our guide was very friendly and full of information about all aspects of the tour. An easy kayak...
