My family went out with Eli for a full day tour — Lind Point trail hike, kayak and snorkel to Henley Cay and Scott Beach, and lunch on the beach at Bikinis at Honeymoon beach. We ended up having a private tour and it was a perfect day. Eli was an amazing guide. From the beginning of the hike his knowledge of the local environment was clearly evident. He answered all of our questions about trees, plants, bugs, etc. over the course of our one mile hike to Honeymoon beach. He knew about every plant, tree, and bug and is truly passionate about the local ecology. Once there the setup was really easy. He set us up with lockers for our dry gear, provided water and snacks, and got our kayaks ready. VI Ecotours has a great setup here with a beach store, gear and cabana rentals, and it’s own restaurant. Eli then led us on a leisurely 30-minute kayak to Henley Cay where we snorkeled the reef. Eli joined us and pointed out all the different types of coral. While the reef was severely damaged, it’s definitely coming back to life and was the best and most diverse coral we’ve seen in the VIs since the 2017 hurricanes. We even saw a rare moray eel. After a snack on the beach we headed over to Scott Beach at Caneel just as the sun came out. We had the pristine beach to ourselves with the resort still closed. We relaxed for a while as Eli explained more about the fish and coral we had just seen and the post-storm renovation efforts before heading back in ocean where we spotted 5 turtles and a octopus in calm crystal clear water. After relaxing in the sun again, we headed back to Honeymoon Beach for a delicious Mahi sandwich lunch that was included in the tour. After lunch, we packed up and Eli hiked with us back to Cruz Bay to end our perfect day. We would not hesitate to go out with Eli and VI Ecotours again. It was a perfect socially distanced activity during COVID times. Eli and all the staff used appropriate safety precautions in high traffic areas. We felt perfectly safe at all times. Can’t wait to go back out with Eli and VI Ecotours again.

We had an amazing time and I highly recommend anyone coming to USVI to take a tour with these folks. Our guide Tyler was awesome and should us and another family a great time. Also, to burn some time before or after a tour here, Lindquist Beach is not too far and its quiet, gorgeous, and makes for a great beach walk. Hungry? Goto Taco Chelles down the street.

We took the night kayak tour last week. Our guide was a sweet young man named Kevin. He was very knowledgeable about the Mangroves and the pirates that use to come through there. I learned some interesting facts. The night itself was VERY dark, no moon to help see. With it so dark, and the wind blowing, it made it hard to see anything in the water, which was such a bummer. I didn't see a single thing in the water. I was mislead from the beginning though, I'm sure my own fault. I was under the assumption the kayaks were the type with lights underneath, which was not the case. I guess the picture on the site is what made me think this. There is a light in the water by the dock with a kayak on it...kind of misleading. They do offer a small headlamp to wear, but it was still too hard to see anything. Honestly wish I would have done the daytime tour instead. If you do this, make sure the moon is out to help you see, otherwise you'll just be paddling around in the dark.
