The only reason for the 3 star review was that it was a bit stressful finding this place. For starters, vague directions given are in times (go 10 minutes past the restaurant) as opposed to miles which can be followed on the odometer. Second, some of the landmarks given in the emailed directions weren't there (there is no sign designating... More

Sarah, of Hidden Reef Eco-Tours, was a good guide--she is very personable and enthusiastic and knows the environs. She gave us a bit of history about the island which was interesting, and identified the sea life we asked about.

My wife and I went on a THREE HOUR TOUR...A THREE HOUR TOUR...with Hidden Reef Eco-tours, specifically with Sarah as our guide. We really lucked out, in so much that we were the only people who were on the tour. This was great, as we were able to get out and do lots of paddling and snorkeling in some great... More

My husband and I spent several hours kayaking in Hurricane Hole led by Dana. We stopped a few places for some of the best snorkeling we had on St. John. Saw a shark, several turtles, several rays, Caribbean lobster and lots of wonderful fish and coral. Dana was incredibly friendly and attentive. My husband is very comfortable in the water... More

Sarah was a fabulous guide -full of fun trivia about the area, wildlife, and water below. She took great care... More

Our guide, Sarah, made this activity so much fun. She made us all feel like we were friends. She knew a lot about kayaking, the water, the fish and other animals in the ocean. The snorkeling was the best we've seen in St. John. Sarah took us to a part of the island that can only be accessed by boat... More

My son (age 9) and I had an amazing experience with Hidden Reef Eco-Tours. Everything was perfect- a beautiful quiet bay, lots of wildlife, and very wonderful and accommodating staff. Cory led our trip and he was very knowledgeable about sea kayaking, marine ecology, and the island. The trip was the perfect length and pace for us. My son loved... More

What a great afternoon with Sarah in the back of my kayak, she's a pro. We had a small group so we were able to kayak & snorkel in two great spots. There was beautiful coral & plenty of marine life & I was happy to be able to get lots of underwater shots. Thanks Walter for you superb customer... More

This was a fantastic 3 hour family outing which included my husband and me, our 4 kids (7-14), and my parents. We loved our guide, Sarah, from the minute we met her. She was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable, not only about the reefs and the types of sea creatures we were viewing, but also about the infamous and ruthless pirates... More

We had a wonderful time kayaking and snorkeling in a couple different places with Sarah. She was very entertaining and fun. Her energy was catching! She knew right where to go to see wonderful coral and lots of different fish, even though it was afternoon and the fish were not at their most active. I wish I were there right... More
