Great evening paddle

Great experience on an evening mangrove paddle with Ecotours. The tour was a relaxing pace and my tour guide, Bubby, was friendly and interesting to talk to. Thanks Ecotours!

We’ve been vacationing on St. John for years but this Christmas vacation was the first time we did anything with VI Eco Tours and it was FANTASTIC! We did the three-hour Henley Cay Snorkel. It consists of a 20 minute or so kayak from Honeymoon beach out to Henley Cay for some incredible snorkeling. The water was crystal clear and... More

While on a cruise to the Caribbean we booked a tour with this company to the Mangrove Lagoon in St Thomas. It was a fun excursion despite the strong wind on the way out. Our guides Lee, Bubby, Maria & Corey were knowledgeable & engaging. Because of the conditions there wasn't a lot to see while snorkeling, otherwise it was... More

Great 3 hour tour with snorkeling, kayaking and hiking. Michael, our guide, was very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. The trip was just what we expected. We leaned a lot about the local history, especially the Danish influence, as well as the local flora.

I shared almost all of my sunscreen with guess who came on prepared. But no problem man. We were given a bottle of water and also had lockers for valuables. Some gifts came in flip-flops which were unsuitable for the hike. The kayak trip was beautiful the hike exquisite in the snorkeling wonderful. The tour guide was knowledgeable but needs... More

My wife, daughter, and I just returned from a delightful 5-hour tour with Patrick Connelly of Virgin Island Ecotours. It was well-nigh perfect--nice hike, some brisk paddling, and great snorkeling. Patrick was a wonderful guide: fun, thoughtful, knowledgeable, and very solicitous. Saw turtles, rays, a barracuda, and many other things besides, and learned something of the island's ecology and history... More

My wife, 11-year-old son, and I participated in a Hike, Kayak and Snorkel excursion provided by Virgin Island Ecotours as part of a cruise. The experience was the perfect mix of beautiful sights, good information about the habit and history of the area, and physical (but not too strenuous) activity. I was particularly impressed with our guide, Yosh, who very... More

My family and I went here to go kayaking and learn to snorkel. Our guide, Yosh, was funny and friendly. My family of 4 had never snorkeled before, but Yosh was very helpful. Snorkeling allowed us to see what really happens under the water. My whole family loved this part of the excursion and want to back. Snorkeling was my... More

We have done this kayak ecotour several times and each time it seems to get better. The kayak part is easy but always an adventure. the tour par gives you very fun information each time. The snorkeling is not the best, but it is a great way to cool off and have a little fun.
