The view before the ride was great. The bike ride was fun and adventurous. Please listen to the instructions on sitting back on the seat as you come down. Once we got to the end of the ride We were given the oppprtunity to extend the ride for another 20 minutes. Take the extra 20 minutes to ride. Honeymoon beach was a tropical paradise. Make sure to order a burger to share as soon as you arrive. I look forward to doing this ride again next year.

We had a ball on this mountain biking adventure. Susan met our cruise ship at 9:30am and escorted us on a short walk to the ferry to Water Island. On the ferry ride, she gave us a fascinating history of the island as well as her journey there. Both very interesting. Her husband met us at the ferry landing and drove us to the starting point of the ride, arriving at 10:15 or 10:30am. We had a guide at the front of our group (Susan's husband) and a guide at the rear of the group (Ray, a retired landscape architect). We stopped several times along the ride for photo opportunities. Don't forget to bring your camera. What beautiful views! The ride was a little rigorous at times, but easily doable for two 50 somethings in fairly good shape. We rode for a couple of hours total, I would guess, and ended our ride at Honeymoon Beach, a beautiful cove, where we swam, had an opportunity to purchase a grilled burger for lunch and generally enjoyed the beach. There were changing facilities to get into our swim suits and Susan kept an eye on our things. All told, we were back on the ship by 1:45pm or so. As you may have guessed, we would highly recommend this excursion when you next find yourself at St. Thomas.

I had a wonderful time on my Water Island Bike adventure. I was on the Allure of the Seas and did the Water Island Adventure as a shore tour. It was fantastic. I loved the views during the trip and Susan was an awesome host. I would highly recommend this trip for both the experienced biker and the beginner. The time at the beach was great too.

We really enjoyed our adventure Mountain Biking on Water Island in May, 2012. We did have rain, but they trip proceeded as planned and we had a blast. This is a great way to see the Island Life in the Carribean. Our hosts Susan and her husband narrated our trip with humor and true insight. All of the logistics on this adventure were executed flawlessly, from meeting us at the Cruise Ship, to the water taxi, the trip up the mountain to get our bikes. We were delivered safely back to the dock at the end of the excursion.

Since the weather wasn't great, we did do an extended ride, optional and had a shorter time at the beach. Each rider could either ride more or have more time at the beach. All in all a great time with a great company. We highly recommend this to the cruising passengers who want to do something besides shop in the port!

Friendly, very knowledgable tour guides. Water Island was beautiful. Our 11-yr old was able to handle the ride easily. Two tour guides attended plus one in a small truck to help repair bike issues and provide water. The excursion wrapped up at a beautiful, quiet beach.
