Owner description: Our ATV tour lasts approximately 1 1/2 hours and covers 13 miles of tropical terrain. It begins by riding along the west end coast line before heading up into the hills. We make a stop at an overlook that gives you fantastic views of the north shore. As we continue, we make our way to the top of Mt. Stewart where you get amazing vistas of the surrounding area. We visit plantation ruins from the early 1800's where you get time to explore and take photographs. From there we descend through the Sub-Tropical Rain Forest before ending the tour at a Rainbow Beach.

My wife and I rode the ATV on the 1 1/2 hour and 15 mile adventure through the rainforest and upper reaches of the west end of St. Croix. Neither of us had been on an ATV before. It was just exciting enough to call it an adventure. We rode some smooth roads and some really rough terrain---some dust, some mud, lots of twists and turns, ups and downs. There were some beautiful overlooks and some ruins of the sugar cane plantations. Arlin did a good job of making sure we were all safe and informed. Recommended for the adventurous spirit.

We had a fantastic time with Gecko's ATV tour. It was our first time on an ATV and it was a great experience. A short walk to their office and it was time to ride. We really felt safe and Arlin was a great tour guide.

Our cruise ship, the Celebrity Summit, was stopping in St. Croix and after doing our research, we decided to book an ATV tour with Gecko's while in port. The office is located a very short, and pleasant, walk from the cruise ship pier. We had never ridden an ATV before, but that was part of the fun. The owner gives everyone excellent directions, stressing safety precautions, which are actually more common sense than anything, but as the owner, he has to make sure that everyone knows what to do. My husband, as it turns out, is an excellent and intrepid driver, showing no fear of ruts or water holes! The tour is approximately 90 min long, though ours started a bit earlier as everyone was checked in and ready to go a bit ahead of schedule. The ride took us through varied terrain, some quite exciting, always very scenic. Our guide always pointed out the points of interest, historical or topographical, that we were going to see on each leg. We even stopped at one of the sugar mill ruins on the island, this one built in 1808, and were given a history of how the sugar plantations were an integral part of the early economy of the island. We would absolutely do this again, it was one of the highlights of our vacation!

It was my first time I ever rode an ATV and it was an experience I'll never forget.The ATV tour was amazing and it gave me another reason to still love St. Croix. The staff was friendly and professional. At first I was a little timid being on the ATV, but after the first ten minutes, I felt like Speed Racer. Lol! Thank you Gecko's Island Adventures for an amazing experience and you will see me again real soon. Take care!
