Very easy to book, we were late for the initial booking, there were able to put us on a later tour.
Traveling there is a challenge, the Taxi by the port try to max their trip revenue, so they wait till they pack the mini bus (fits 11 people) then go. It can be faster if you get off the cruse early because more people are riding. Make sure you have enough cash on you for round trip. We paid $10 per person, given inflection the reader can adjust accordingly. The tour company can help you call a car over to take you back to the port, but there is a wait time, so make sure you give enough time to get back to the ship.
Our guide Patricio was super helpful, he was playful with the kids, helped us look at while marine life, he got some jelly fish for people to hold and showed me where to fine many school of fish. He also snorkeled with us and pointed to where all the fishes are.
Overall, just beautiful view on the water, around the small islands. We kept up fine and is totally worry free for beginners. It does take a little bit to get use to the Kayak for the first time, i suggest to try out the roll machine in the gym to get a feel how rolling works. I was with my little one, and my wife rolled with the older one and it was the perfect day.

This Kayaking tour ended up being the best day of our 2 week vacation here. Swish was the absolute best tour gruide ever!

We kayaked in the different areas of the mangroves, held the mangrove jellyfish, went over to a deserted island and seen the hundreds of hermit crabs, learned about the island, seen the most poisonous tree in the world and got a lot of history from Swish about it. Then we hiked to the blow hole for pictures and to an area that was really rocky and shallow. We found so many critters under the rocks from a baby moray eel, hundreds of brittle starfish, crabs, pencil urchins, west indian and black spiny sea urchins, snails and so on. We could have stayed here all day!

Then we hiked back to the area we parked our kayaks and the snorkeling began. There were tons of fish, shrimp, sea cucumbers, crabs, barracuda's, anemone's, lobsters, and coral. Several times we caught a reef shark swimming back and forth. It was amazing!

Then we all raced back to the "office" and had a blast. This whole entire time Swish had been taking photo's of us and they offer all the photo's he took of us for $35! What a deal! We ended up with 145 photos of JUST us and they throw in another 1148 pictures as a bonus package of all the sea creatures, fish, plants and everything in with the deal. You can't beat this and Swish does a great job of taking pictures (he had the same camera as me).

If you get the chance to do this tour DO IT! Ask for Swish. You will have the best day ever! If we come back, we wouldn't hesitate to do it again.

My wife and I were part of a group of 12 that hit the water on New Year’s Day, guided by Jelani. We got our money’s worth, spending 4 solid hours kayaking through the mangroves, going ashore to hike and check out local plants, then capping it off with nearly an hour of snorkeling through pristine brackish water just near the ocean, seeing octopi and tropical fish in abundance. Jelani was a very able guide, lots of fun while providing enlightening commentary on mangrove species and the like. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants a real taste of nature in the Virgin Islands!

As our last activity while on the island we booked a guided tour to Cas Cay for the Kayak, Hike, and Snorkel. Our guide was Devon and he made the experience wonderful. Originally we were only going to rent kayaks and explore on our own but ended up doing a guided tour. Devon was not only knowledgeable of the island and surrounding wildlife but truly exuded passion when educating our group! He was professional, fun, and made the entire experience great.

Truly Devon made the tour the highlight of our trip and we are so happy that we booked. We will return in the future for another vacation and will be booking another excursion and requesting Devon as our guide!

This was a great package and lasted a little over three hours. Swish was our guide and did a great job and provided us with lots of interesting information and facts. We also had lunch at the cafe located on site and the food was excellent at a reasonable price. Every employee was very friendly and helpful. If you need an activity while on the island, this is a great way to spend a few hours.

This was the absolute highlight of our entire week in the Caribbean. Our guides, Swish and Andy, provided the best tour with historical commentary, local narrative, safety and fun. Each element was just the right amount. We learned and saw so much. Swish educated us on the different types of Mangrove Trees and showed us each. Loved seeing Hermit Crabs in the wild. Hiking to the blowhole and then snorkeling. While out in the water we saw jellyfish, rays, sea cucumbers, fish, anemones and more! They kept us hydrated, provided a quick burst of chocolate energy for the paddle back and the photos they took were amazing. Most of all they were reasonably priced and again the best pictures we had of our entire family from a week long trip. I can't say enough good things about this company and trip. I only wish we had more time at the end to enjoy tacos and more back at their base. We will absolutely return and use them again and recommend them to anyone that asks!

This was a great experience! Our tour guides, Dennis and Angie, were both very friendly and helpful. Dennis was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and local lore/history and Angie took beautiful photos! While snorkeling we saw an octopus, barracuda, lobster, conch, jelly fish, and lots of sea urchins and fish. The hike was beautiful as well - I would recommend wearing water shoes with a good grip as you will walk on some rocks in the water at the end to check out the tide pool. The kayaks do get wet so we didn't bring our phones but there is a photo package you can purchase for $35. If you want to save some money, I would recommend bringing a water proof bag for your phones/cameras because you will want to take pictures! Definitely bring sunscreen because you will be in the sun pretty much the entire time. Water and candy were provided. Overall, this was a fun adventure and I would recommend!

Excellent service great guide Jelani, nice kayaks and all staff extremely friendly and helpful. The tour was through the mangrove lagoon and then out in to the bay at the breakwater. Jelani was so knowledgeable and informative explaining all about the eco system and stopping to point out things on the 45 minutes kayak trip. Plenty of water provided. We then beached at the Cay, did an easy 30 minutes trek around the island, with Jelani explaining the different mangroves and other trees and animals. We walked to the "blow hole" and then back for about 30-40 minutes snorkeling in the lagoon followed by a nice Kayak trip back to the dock.

Jelani and Tamera were our guides for our amazing adventure through the Mangroves. Due to circumstances I booked our trip less than 12 hours before the tour.
Surprisingly everything ran smoothly and worked out great! Staff reached out to confirm and even allowed us to add people last minute. Everyone was friendly and professional. The tour felt relaxed, comfortable and was beautiful. Jelani was clearly knowledgeable and eager to share interesting stories and facts. He is clearly passionate about his work and by the end of the trip we felt like best friends! Tamera was great with the kids and took great pictures of our day. There was a fun gift shop at the launch site as well as bathrooms and a place to purchase drinks. Make sure to wear a rash guard or at least reapply sunscreen. Thanks for the great day!

This was our first trip to the Virgin Islands and our second time snorkeling. We’ve kayaked before but we’re not experts by any means. We thought a guided tour would be worth the cost- helping us make the most of limited time. Sabrina was our guide and she was super knowledgeable (a marine biologist) and very kind and helpful. It was a low stress, peaceful, and educational tour through beautiful and quiet waters. Lots of marine life when we snorkeled, tons of hermit crabs on Cas Cay, some sea urchins in the tide pools. The food for sale at the check in area by the dock was really good and there is a bar too. A great way to spend part of a day!
