So we weren't able to get off our ship and to the meeting point on time and we were crushed we missed the whole tour. We were only about 15 minutes late but I get that you can't keep others waiting.
I'm still giving them an excellent rating because they refunded all our fees without any hassle and at their own offering. They seem like an upstanding and honest tour group that will work with you.

What an amazing experience! Me & my husband joined the mangrove paddle few days ago, and being completely inexperienced in kayaking, we had the most amazing tour. Alex is very patient, supporting and understanding curator, his guidance helped us to find a way how to paddle without being too far behind)) And when we reached mangroves, wow, I did not expect to see this kind of natural beauty on BVI. And also, Alex is so caring about the wild life, so knowledgeable about history of BVI. I would say it's a must to go for any kind of tour with him, it will make you fall in love with BVI even more. We will be back!

Alex was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the eco-system that is the mangroves. He explained everything really well and we found the trip enlightened us to a whole new world. Who knew how important the mangroves were for the planet? (nearly 4 times more effective than rainforest at absorbing carbon) We also learned a lot about jellyfish and saw baby sharks and the biggest starfish I’ve ever seen. Thoroughly recommended.

Alex, the business owner and guide, was extremely knowledgeable and very personable. The kayak journey through the Mangrove lagoon was truly a special experience. We learned a great deal about the delicate and fascinating eco system and Alex shared interesting stories about island history. Although most of the trip was serene, there were periods of the journey that provided a great work out as well with vigorous padding through areas of strong currents. This was definitely one of the highlights of our vacation.

Five adults - our two sons, girlfriend and husband and I had the most amazing time. Husband (novice) and I were in 2 man kayak, rest on paddle boards. Woo gave us few simple safety instructions ie keep to his left, how to steer kayak etc. where we were going/what we were doing. Little difficult against current going out but if my husband can do it, anyone can! Woo was very calm , encouraging and close at hand just in case we steered off course. We had a fantastic time. Woo was so informative about the area and surrounding islands, both in the past and present. He has such a depth of knowledge- we were shown many living species, including jellyfish, barracuda and lemon sharks. We picked mangrove seeds and helped re-seed them elsewhere to regenerate new growth. We actually capsized (my husband forgot he was in a kayak!) but it made my boys’ day and it was pretty funny. This trip was the highlight of our holiday - a few hours away from everyone, peace and quiet and if you get a chance don’t miss out on a wonderful experience

What a great time this was! Alex is an excellent guide. From a strictly paddling guide standpoint he's patient and friendly with his guests. From a knowledge and passion for this particular place standpoint he's as good of a guide as I've ever had anywhere. He really knows and loves this place and taught our whole group a lot about mangrove lagoons and their importance to tropical ecosystems all while sprinkling in stories about the history of Tortola. We've paddled in many locations and it's always different wherever we go. If you enjoy paddling you should definitely do this trip and prepare to learn a little while you're having fun.

Alex was such an amazing tour guide as we paddled through the mangrove. This was really the cherry on top after our catamaran charter after island glamping for 5 fun-filled days. We highly recommend this excursion for everyone.
