My husband and I took the St John's kayak/hike/snorkel with Austin as our guide. The trip was unhurried. Austin knows his subject matter well and seems to truly enjoy his work. Best of all, he located a couple of turtles for us and positioned himself to photograph me with one. Thrill of a lifetime!

Tiffany was our guide. Small group of 2 person kayaks - very easy to paddle. Two hour visit and saw lots of fish and the mangroves. Life jackets required so don't need to be a strong swimmer. Purchased the digital picture offer for $30 with pictures from our group plus some canned pictures. Nice balance of nature tour, adventure and... More

We did the three hour kayak, hike and snorkel, and it was excellent! Our guide, Lee, was very knowledgable about the area, it's history, flora and fauna. When we went snorkeling, he went out of his way to point out interesting sea life to us - things we would not have noticed on our own. This trip had a great... More

We had a great time with Colton as our guide. He made it very interesting and fun. His factual recounting of some scary legends and ghosts stories kept the kids entertained. He was very attentive and made sure everyone had a great time. Thanks!!!

We picked the perfect day, the water was calm and clear. Our kayak was lovely, we were giving ecological information that was informative and interesting along the way.

We booked this tour thru Carnival excursions while on our cruise last week. It was listed as kayak, hike, and snorkel. Being first time kayakers we were a little nervous as to how we would do, so we practiced a bit while everyone was getting their kayaks ready. Once the tour started, we had such a great time.
