Overview
Combine kayaking and snorkeling in a single express tour, with all equipment provided, in St. Thomas' mangrove lagoon. The maze of clear, twisting tributaries through the mangrove forest may be challenging to navigate on your own, but with a guide in the lead, you can focus on the scenery. Listen as your guide points out local flora and fauna, then dive in to explore the underwater world on a snorkeling excursion.
Highlights
  • Single tour to explore the mangrove lagoon via both kayaking and snorkeling
  • Beginner-friendly tour: all gear and instructions provided 
  • Lockers to store valuables and belongings during the activity
  • Refuel with a snack of candy and water
What to Expect
Meet your guide at the Mangrove Lagoon Wildlife Sanctuary and Marine Preserve, located on St. Thomas' southern coast. Get an orientation and safety briefing, then get fitted for your kayak and snorkel gear before heading out to Patricia Cay and Long Point. The provided kayak allows you to glide easily through the small channels and around tiny islands planted with mangroves. Your guide will point out local wildlife, such as spotted rays and stingrays, as they swim around and under your kayak. Switch modes of exploration and don your snorkel equipment to get a peek below the waterline. Your guide will be with you the entire time to answer questions and provide any directions to those new to snorkeling. Back in the kayak, enjoy being warmed by the sun during the quick paddle back to the marina, where your tour ends.

Kevin took us (me and my son) and 2 other couples on a Kayak tour and snorkeling trip - he was very knowledgeable and on the hike to a deserted island taken over by hermit crabs - it was really cool seeing all the hermit crabs crawling around. Highly recommend!!

As a long-time resident of St. Thomas, I would say this is probably the best tour a tourist can take. I took the tour for my second time today, this time with Zach. I learned a lot of interesting things the first time I took the tour (about 5 years ago), and even more this

Kayaking through the mangrove, hiking on a cay and snorkeling guided by Kevin was fabulous. Seeing where the ocean meets the mangrove is breathtaking, Kevin will tell you about the “false entry” and pirates...Truly an excellent 3h. We will definitely book Ecotours again for more
