We took a bus ride to where we met Jonas who was our friendly and articulate guide for the 3 hour excursion. Water was provided, but I brought sunscreen and a snack, and wore water sox. I burn easily and maybe could've brought a towel to lay over my legs while we kayaked. Jonas was very engaging, funny and informative.... More

We had a great experience on the tour. The guides and staff were very friendly and kayaking through the mangroves was so fun. We went in the morning (9:30am) and it was perfect.

What an Amazing Experience!!! . Cory, our guide, was not only very patient with me being new to snorkeling, but he was so very knowledgable about the nature and history of the surroundings. It was just so very peaceful and serene quietly floating in the two lagoons and observing God's creations. Cory made sure we saw what he was seeing,... More

Our tour guide, Richele, was excellent. Beautiful personality that will answer any and all question and take good care of you. My wife and I were paddle board rookies when we showed up, but that is nothing to fear, as we signed up for the "Stand Up Paddle in the Mangrove Lagoon - SUP Tour". With a life vest and... More

We booked the St. Thomas 3 hr kayak, hike, and snorkel tour through the cruise ship. It was quite a long trip from the harbor to their facility so if you do this adventure on your own that needs to be considered. There were about 12 people in the group and we went out in two person kayaks with two... More

On this, our first trip to St. John, we wanted to see everything we could fit in. A kayak/hike/snorkel seemed a wonderful way to dip our toes into a variety of environments. We were not disappointed! We learned all about the ecology and history of the island from our great guide, Patrick. This was my wife's first kayak experience and... More

We had a great seasoned islander guide (and a newer guide learning the ropes) for our 3 hr trip. Jonah was on top of it and in great spirits the whole time. He was just as comfortable answering questions about native species as he was about local hang outs! He also had a good command of the history of the... More
