My husband and I had a wonderful time kayaking, snorkeling and checking out mangroves and local wildlife. Our tour guide was Jelani, who shared so much about the types of mangroves, some local history and overview of everything we were encountering. It was obvious he cares a lot about his native area and wildlife, which was great to see! He also took great pictures - you pay for photo package separately, but the photos are so well worth it. We would recommend this tour to anyone! Thank you, Ecotours!

Race was a great tour guide. Went over everything before we went and was able to show us starfish and other sea urchins he could find in the water. Really don’t need water shows. Sandals work fine. Bring a change of clothes they have a small area to change clothes after your excursion. Make sure you show up early to check on and get your snorkel gear unless you have your own which I recommend because it’s just nice using your own.

excursion was great. we paid to have the transfer from the port to the excursion, was easy as could be. when we docked i had a text and voicemail from the driver telling me where to find them. friendly and great service. we had swish, race and kellz as our tour guides. they were great. super friendly and helpful. the hiking/walking tour was very informative of local island vegetation and the hermit crabs were one of the coolest things i've seen in nature (not a zoo). was a fantastic excursion and would recommend 100%

My sister, brother-in-law, and me went on a private Kayaking trip with Sherrie through this company Virgin Islands Ecotours. We loved our Guide. Sherri was knowledgeable, insightful about the area, and just fun! She'll always remember me, because soon after we left dock, I got my paddle caught in a tree limb and fell in the water! Sherrie was a trooper and made sure I was okay and I was fine, just wet. I made a review earlier about this experience but said Janet was our Guide, and I was mistaken, her name is Sherri. She had the nicest personality and I would recommend her as a Guide for any Island experience because you could tell she enjoys her work which made it delightful for us, even though I was wet. Cruise line groups are too large. We had a private tour and will do it again using the same company next time we go.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! I personally tipped over 3 times on my trip as a customer before working here. Don't sweat it! We look forward to seeing you back for one of our other adventures on St. Thomas and/or St. John!

Exceptional tour and guides with great information about the area! The level of customer support provided to those that required it was above and beyond.

If your lucky enough you will have tour guides Dennis and Andy! These two worked well together.

The education and stories behind the trip were better than most tours guides. The passion Dennis showed was clear. Dennis went above and beyond taking a single mom with her daughter into his kayak while conducting the tour and then on the hike and even during snorkel. Yet, he and Andy still was leading us at every turn and making sure everyone enjoyed the tour! This is a MUST DO.

Amazing day on the water with the family! Sherrie has been here on island for years and was able to provide the perfect balance of information and fun. My oldest is on the autism spectrum and we all had an absolute blast. Kayaking, snorkeling and hiking were all just perfect for the novice but still fascinating for anyone with experience given the surroundings. Really can't say enough about how our guide Sherrie crafted such a special day. If you go on this trip make sure to pick a fast hermit crab for the race!

We did this kayak trip as a shore excursion on our Explorer of the Seas cruise. Swish, our guide was personable, knowledgeable, and efficient. The kayaking was not too strenuous, the short walk on the cay was interesting, and the snorkeling was okay. The water was a bit silty and there were not many varieties of fish to see. We did see some starfish and sea anemones.

Recommendation - bring reef friendly sunscreen. We did not have any and the tube they had on sale at the shop was more expensive than the money we had brought along. My husband and I ended up with a terrible sunburn.

This was our first time kayaking through the Red Mangroves. Our guide, JB, gave us was very knowledgable about the mangrove ecosystem and its inhabitants. When we were out snorkeling, JB dove down to point out the sea cucumbers, urchins, lobster, pufferfish and ray who were hiding. We swam to several different habitats allowing us to see a variety of different fish, animal and plant life. Very interesting and enjoyable tour!

We had an absolutely lovely day with our guide Kayleigh this week in St. Thomas. The tour was well times, informational, and a lot of fun!

The only negative was that we had to provide our own transportation to and from port. Our cab driver initially took us to the wrong marina and we were almost late arriving for our tour. Highly recommend water shoes or hard soles sandals you're fine getting wet and snorkeling in, the hikes aren't long enough to warrant actual hiking shoes.

Our tour guide Troy was VERY knowledgeable and made our entire excursion a lot of fun. We even had someone on our tour who couldn’t swim but Troy made sure she was comfortable at all times. Highly recommend this tour for all ages but be ready for a workout! We did over 2000 strokes, roughly 2 miles and burned 800 calories! Great tour!
