This a great snorkeling tour with a knowledgeable guide. The kayak trip is a brief paddle from an East End bay to a beach near an extensive system of colorful coral reefs - one older and one relatively young. The fish sightings are diverse and colorful including squid and a moray eel, but the coral gardens are a rare sight... More

My husband and I thought this was the highlight of our trip. Jennifer was awesome, taught us so much about plant life and sea life. An easy kayak then beautiful snorkel in Round Bay while Jennifer pointing out different sea life, explaining it all. It was one of the best snorkeling we did in St. John. Very fun, relaxing and...

Went with wife and 3 friends. It's a great time. You kayak out of the lagoon through mangrove forest; then snorkel a bit, walk around little islands; takes about 4 hours; eat a lot before you WILL be hungry. There is a guide in a group. Ours' was Josh- cool dude! So the deal is where, as you go, the... More

Three of us took the three-hour trip with Randy. Because we were fast paddlers, we were able to get in two great snorkeling spots. Randy was an excellent guide, pointing out interesting things on land, on the water and underwater. My only complaint is the company's lack of one-man kayaks. There were only three of us, but two of us... More

Jen is a great guide. She is incredibly knowledgable about not just marine life and ecology, but the history of the island as well. She also has lots of great snorkeling and kayaking tips. We had a beautiful, calm day and saw lots of cool stuff. We'd highly recommend using this company and requesting Jen.

Jen was the best! Kayaks were comfortable and easy to use. Snorkeling was awesome and Jen knew so much about all of the sea life. It was windy on the day that we went (very rare, according to Jen), but we had a great time anyway. Would love to do it on a calm day sometime.

My husband and I went kayaking with Thaddeus this week. His knowledge and experience made this more than just a kayaking trip, it was truly a learning experience. I couldn't believe we were out in the Big Blue! Due to overcast weather, we were lucky enough to have a private trip. I would highly recommend asking for Thaddeus when booking... More

Trips like this are a great way to get out to places that you wouldn't otherwise have the opportunity to see. Don't be intimidated if you've never kayaked, it's a simple activity, with a short learning curve to get it down. Our trip was no exception- We were put in a "divorce boat" (which we've heard them referred to as... More

My son and I really enjoyed this trip with guide Justin. The high point for me was seeing a shipwreck but the fish and coral were outstanding too. The reef is away from shore (hidden!) so our group had the reef to ourselves. Highly recommended!
