This was our second to last day on St. John that we decided to go kayaking with a professional tour guide. And it was worth every penny!! I was afraid to snorkel and Sarah COMPLETELY took all of that away for me. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity that I am so glad I took advantage of while... More

If you kayak and snorkel and are looking for a real St John experience , book a trip with Sara at Hidden Reef. She was very patient and guided us to some fantastic, off the beaten path locations by kayak. Some of the snorkeling in the National Park has gotten too crowded but this trip, 1/14/16, was great. Unspoiled and... More

Reached by kayak the point that enters the Caribbean Sea, a dramatic vivid moment. Subsequently visited two reefs. Sarah is cordial, warm, infectiously enthusiastic, a very... More

We kayaked with the amazing Sara on 12/24/15. We arrived a bit early, as we were worried we would get lost coming from Cruz Bay. However, the directions were perfect, and we showed up about 9am for our 9:30 tour. Sara was ready to go, so we started the tour early, which was great. Haulover Bay is gorgeous. We kayaked... More

My family enjoyed our morning excursion with Hidden Reef Eco-tours while staying on St.John. With two kids it can be hard to find an activity that everyone will enjoy. This was a hit for all of us! Our kids 12 and 14 couldn't stop asking questions of our knowledgeable guide. We appreciated that safety was her top concern.also. We highly... More

My husband and twin daughters were the only ones who were scheduled on the tour so we had a very personalized experience. It was great to kyack out in beautiful haulover bay and Cory, our guide, led us to some great snorkeling. We saw some of the healthiest coral on the entire island. Awesome experience

This was our second year kayaking and snorkeling with Hidden Reef Eco-Tours. It is always the best day. We had a great day on the water, and snorkeling around Pelican Rock is always a highlight. Sara was awesome - highly highly recommend. Even the second time around, was still our favorite day. I'll come back every year we are able... More
