Devon was wonderful! My friends and I did night kayaking and he was our tour guide. He did great making everyone feel comfortable and is also very knowledgable about St. Thomas’ history and background. Also told ghost and pirate stories! It was a great experience overall!

The crew here was so accommodating and got us set up quickly - they were also kind enough to give us an option of two single kayaks instead of a double which was great. The route is so much fun and we were able to stop at Cas Cay - it’s about a 45-60 minute paddle out which is the perfect length. There is a nice hike on Cas Cay and picnic benches to stop off and have a snack and a drink if you pack a small flexible cooler. You will also see a lot of hermit crabs! Totally enjoyable experience.

This was a great getaway from the fast pace of the rest of the island! It was quiet and serene and I was able to go at my own pace. At Cas Cay, I was able to hike up the island and take in the views from there, something that I’m not sure you can go on a guided tour. The snorkeling was okay, and I got to see some interesting creatures, but I recommend going on a day that isn’t so windy. Pulling back into Eco tours was odd as no one came to help me out of my kayak, even after calling out for someone. Overall I spent five hours in the mangroves but I could have stayed through the night if they would let me!

We decided to rent the Kayaks for the day vs going with a group. It was super easy to navigate without a guide and we loved that we could take our time and do our own thing. We were out on the water from 9:30-2ish. We hiked the little island, snorkeled with the items they provided, and relaxed on the little beach. For a while we didn't even see anyone else on the little island. It was a wonderful way to spend a morning. The only thing I would do different is pack a lunch. The only reason we came back when we did was to get food. It would have been great to picnic while we were out.

We rented a double kayak and got to explore Mangrove Lagoon and Cas Cay on our own. The manager gave us a map as well as some areas to explore. We kayaked and hiked, and were able to bring our own lunch to enjoy on the beach. The waters in the lagoon are much calmer than out in the ocean, so the kayak was a little easier (although there were some currents we had to kayak against on the way out). We didn't see as many wading birds as I would have hoped in the mangroves, but the scenery was very beautiful. I would definitely recommend kayaking the lagoon!

Highlight of our trip to St Thomas! Having the opportunity to explore the Mangrove Lagoon on our own was amazing! We were able to snorkel in the beautiful, calm water. We enjoyed the short hike and the incredible view we were rewarded with at the top! We also enjoyed the tranquility of the area and the fact that it was not crowded or busy. The staff was helpful, kind, and entertaining. They provided us with a bottle of water, snorkel mask, and the kayaks. We highly recommend and plan to return when we come back to the Virgin Islands.

Left at 8AM, returned about 3PM. Kayaked to Cas Cay, hiked all over, snorkeled the lagoon then enjoyed the beach before kayaking back. Suggest to bring a dry bag and cooler with food and drinks, easy to fit on the kayak. Great time. Easy to do without a guide.

We booked a self guided tour. It was the best option to 6 people. We got a map and were able to navigate to the destination island without any problems. We took a short walk on Cas Cay that led to a beautiful rock shore. Climbed on rocks for incredible views. Snorkeled for some time and kayaked back. The whole trip took 2-2.5 hrs. They have changing rooms, which was very convenient. Helpful and cheerful staff.

Definitely wear a hat, sunglasses, and have sunscreen with you. It was super hot and my shoulders and arm got burned. The Cas Cay island was fun to explore around and there was so many hermit crabs to see! They definitely like Pringle’s. Started our adventure at 9:15am and finished around 11:30am.

Took advantage of the local special and had an amazing time with family and friends! The kayaks were sturdy and easy to maneuver. I never get tired of the natural beauty in these islands! The staff was friendly and efficient and lunch wasn't bad either. Would definitely recommend to visitors and locals.
