My wife and I were staying on St. Thomas and we booked a 3-hour kayak/hike/snorkel tour (Caneel Bay) on St. Johns for 11/16/16. When we got to the eco tour shack over on Honeymoon Beach, it turned out we were the only 2 on the tour!! So, off we went with our guide, William. William was originally from New York... More

Had a super fun time with our tour guide Lee. We had such a fun time kayaking, snorkeling, and hiking. Lee was very friendly and knowledgeable of the area and wildlife. My wife and I were on our honeymoon for this tour and it was a great experience.

The website is a bit deceiving. We thought we would have light up bottom kayaks which would have been amazing but instead we got forehead lamps so we really couldn't see in the water itself. The guides Michael & Jonah were amazing and very helpful. Even w/the equipment they had they made us all have a great time. I would... More

We rented a tandem for our own use, but not on a tour with a guide. From the start, it was a good set up and the location is perfect for exploring the lagoons. Although we were an individual couple on a private rental, we were invited to follow along with another guided group if we wished. This was certainly... More

Loved this excursion -- had a blast kayaking out to the island and then going on a short hike. Snorkeling was perfect. I highly recommend this company for an adventure! The guides are knowledgable and fun. It is almost a mile to/from kayaking, so be aware if you have shoulder or back issues. Sandals are ok for the hike.

Troy and Jonah were the best guides ever. Jonah took my son snorkeling and was able to show him cool stuff rather than stay back with slow me. :-) Troy was awesome too. We did three excursions on our Disney Cruise in October 2016 and this was our favorite. Would definitely do it again. Thank you for all the pictures... More

Went out on the night time kayaking trip with Jonah, who was an excellent guide. It was very personal and didn't feel like a run of the mill, pre-scripted tour, which was wonderful. Got to exchange pirate stories, and had it not been for Jonah, we never would have learned that hermit crabs climb trees!! Highly recommend this trip through... More
