Stopped in here and rented snorkel equipment for the day. They also rent for the week and the prices are reasonable. The guy in the shop (can't remember his name) also does fly fishing trips. He was helpful with suggestions of places to snorkel.

Although the the USVI aren't well known for its fly fishing opportunities, I decided to book a last minute trip with my girlfriend. Coming from PA, I've done plenty of fresh water fly fishing, so salt was completely new to me. Dustin was our captain and guide, from speaking with him, this was his second year guiding in the USVI... More

We had the best time snorkeling and kayaking in Hurricane Hole. We've snorkeled quite a bit but the mangrove forest was amazing: such beautiful corals and creatures of all shapes and sizes, including lobster and an octopus. Close to 4 hours on the water, kayaking and snorkeling in three different spots: it'll wear a person out for sure, but it's... More

My wife and I are novice kayakers, and had never been on open water before, but with Laurens professional instruction and guidance we were confident enough to try. We were rewarded with a fabulous adventure of open water kayaking and small reef snorkeling that was unforgettable. Thanks: Tony and Mary

We had the opportunity to take a day kayak - snorkle trip to Hurrcane Bay. The trip was amazing. Our guide was a young lady by the name of Loren who went over the top to make sure that we had a great experience. What made the trip note worthy was the small size of the group compared to others...

Rented a kayak for a full day with my wife. We also rented snorkel equipment for the week. Arthur and Mark were awesome. They took the time to explain where to go and went to the nth degree to make our week the best possible. It is clear they love what they do. The rates are way better than the... More

Excellent trip. Kayaking around Hurricane Hole and the coves and snorkeling in the mangroves was fantastic. Worth the money and time. Excellent guides who paddled and snorkeled with us. Provided a great lunch. Would schedule another trip with them without hesitation.

We had a great day with Liz, kayaking and snorkeling around Hurricane Hole on St. John. Liz knew not only the name of all the coral, plant life and animals, but also the history of the Island. She was a great guide and did a wonderful trip!
