About
This Stand Up Paddling (SUP) & Snorkeling Adventure is unparalleled as you weave your way through the mangrove tunnels in the lagoon. Discover why stand up paddling has quickly become one of the most fun water activities to do on the island—it’s like walking on water. With the Mangrove Lagoon as your backdrop, look up and you can see nesting birds overhead or look down and see the marine life swimming below you. You will paddle to a protected clear and calm lagoon where you will snorkel in shallow waters. Perfect for beginners and experts alike, this is one tour you won’t want to miss.

What to expect
  • Find your way to the marina at the St. Thomas Mangrove Lagoon, where you'll meet your stand up paddle instructor. Get a short lesson on this easy sport, or tips on improving your form if you've done SUP before.  Hop on the board, paddle in hand, and follow your guide out of the marina and into the Mangrove Lagoon Wildlife Sanctuary and Marine Reserve. Pass secluded, deserted cays that not many visitors get to see. The way the mangroves grow create tunnels and waterways that make for leisurely, interesting paddling. As you glide over the calm waters, look below you for marine life such as tarpon, upside-down jellyfish, and stingrays. Many species use the protection of the mangrove roots as nurseries for their young. SUP is a simple, accessible sport that anyone can learn, but rest assured that your instructor will be with you the whole way in case you have any issues. At the end of your outing, return to the marina.

Unorganized but educational
Sep 2020 • Couples
We booked this online before going and once we got there they let us know they didn’t have a guide for us. They did offer a refund or to allow us to go out on our own but that was really disappointing. Why allow online booking four guided tours if you have no guides?

Having said that, Lance stepped up and offered to be our guide. He was awesome! He had so much knowledge to share about the local ecosystems and ocean life. He showed us jelly fish, conch, and star fish all while respecting the wildlife. Things we wouldn’t have even noticed had we went on our own. I had a ton of fun and learned so much! Thanks Lance for stepping up and teaching me!
