Combine kayaking and snorkeling in a single express tour, with all equipment provided, in St. Thomas' mangrove lagoon. The maze of clear, twisting tributaries through the mangrove forest may be challenging to navigate on your own, but with a guide in the lead, you can focus on the scenery. Listen as your guide points out local flora and fauna, then dive in to explore the underwater world on a snorkeling excursion.

Immerse yourself in the storied pirate history of St. Thomas during this nighttime kayaking tour. Follow your guide through Mangrove Lagoon's warren of waterways, paddling while listening to spooky, swashbuckling stories of the times when pirates ruled those very waters. Gaze up at the inky black sky filled with sparkling stars. Look below your kayak for tarpon, stingrays, and other nocturnally active marine life. Use of kayaks and safety equipment are provided.

I think she will be fine. The hike is short and she will love the Hermit crabs. The snorkel is from land on Case Cay. You will use 2 person kayaks. The area is smooth with no waves. Have fun!
