Nice tour of the mangroves. Educational and scenic. It is a strenuous paddle and swim out. Hubby saw a shark and barracuda. Others saw a ray.

We went on the 9:30 AM excursion with Leesa and Lee and it was fantastic! We'd do it again, no second thoughts. Well worth the money and time. It was fun, educational, and Leesa and Lee were the perfect hosts for the outing!

Put your guide was Austin! He was fabulous. The hike consisted of 1.5 mile walk on rocky but well worn terrain. He knew the plants well and provide background on them during brief stops throughout the tour. We ended at Honeymoon Bay for a one hour swim in beautiful, calm blue water. Clean in crowded beach (and flush toilets nearby)... More

This was probably the thing we enjoyed the most on our honeymoon. Our guide was awesome!!! He needs to keep getting the good shifts because he is worth it. I however do not remember his name. He said he was from South Carolina and he's been down in St. Thomas for about 7-8 years so hopefully that's enough info to... More

Highly recommend the Henley Cay tour. Austin was very knowledgeable about the history, ocean life and fun facts. None of us had a question he couldn't answer or an unsolved issue.
