This was one of the most awesome kayaking adventures I've ever been on! I would definitely recommend this to any family visiting here! We got to see sea turtles, sting rays, different fish, and some really cool coral reefs! Will, Clara, and Austin were the best!

Had an excellent time on the Night Kayak excursion, which departed from the dock at the Frenchman's Reef hotel. The lighted, glass-bottom tandem kayaks provided a great view of the aquatic life - we saw sea turtles, stingrays, and lots of fish. Ours was a mixed group of adults and children, but everyone seemed to have an equally great time.... More

Dear Chrissy315, Thank you for recommending the Night Kayaking tour. I enjoyed reading your review, describing how Nate and Dave were excellent guides. They will be recognized. And for those reading, yes, you don’t need to be an experienced kayaker to enjoy this excursion. The clear Caribbean waters are just beautiful at night. Best, JP, General Manager More

Great place to visit and let loose! Had so much fun in the Adventure Center. The guides on the night kayak trip, Will Kevin & Ciara, were great guides! Friendly and fun, but also very professional. Thank you for showing us around!

The place is kid friendly although there weren't a lot of kids my grandson's age (5) because most are in school (we came Martin Luther King holiday weekend so there were a few). The Virgin Islands is expensive so no surprises but this hotel for location I felt worth the money. Not everything is included in the resort fee, tennis... More

We booked a night kayak trip which was excellent! The tour lasts about an hour and meets up right at the Frenchman's Reef dock. The kayaks have glass bottoms and are lighted so you can see fish, sting ray, sea urchins, and sea turtles. The paddling is very easy and the boats are tandem. Our guide was Melissa and she... More

We absolutely love the CAT sailing adventures and have sailed with them every year when we come to the Marriott Vacation Club. The boat is perfect for groups with plenty of space for all. Captain Joe and his crew, Tim and Nate, make the trips fun and very safe. On the Snorkel Trip, the boat was anchored very close to... More
