“Awesome Guides-Awesome Experience!”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

This is a must do in St. Thomas! Our Guides, Shawn-Zulu-Jelly-Aubrey, were fun, energetic and full of knowledge to share with the entire group. Equipment was in great shape and the instruction to use all of it superb. The DVD package is a must buy...there is no way my husband and I could have captured all that Aubrey did...way to hide out and capture such memorable moments!
Highly recommend this Tour!

“Best Honeymoon Experience-First Time Snorkeling/Kayaking”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Our guides were Chris, Aubrey, and Sammy. Chris (I think) was the lead guide and gave excellent instruction throughout our little adventure. Aubrey took pictures and helped us through the snorkeling (our first time). Sammy was new and pointed out interesting features during our hike.
If/when we return to St.Thomas, we will definitely return to ecotours. Thank you so much for the amazing experience.

“Great way to see the island”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

For our last full day of our Carnival Valor cruise, we decided to do a more active day of snorkeling, hiking, and kayaking. We seemed to get off to a slow start, but once moving, we had a wonderful time. The trip was active and interesting without being overly physically demanding. The snorkling gear was relatively comfortable and the sights were beautiful. We saw a mini barracuda, two sting rays, a caribbean reef squid, a puffer fish and many other beautiful, tropical fish. While kayaking, we learned about the mangrove trees, saw a sea turtle, and got to see a good portion of the lagoon. Our guides, Travis & Jason were excellent. They kept the info coming while making the trip very entertaining.

“Fantastic - must do!”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

I went on this excursion from the Norwegian Epic on 6 February 2013. It was great fun! Our guides were CJ, Laura Lee, and Derek and they were excellent, fun and professional. Even though it rained for most of the kayaking and snorkeling part, it didnt matter since we were wet anyway and having a great time. I particularly enjoyed the fact that it took place in a wildlife refuge so the water was very clean and clear. Highly recommended!

“Awesome way to experience the island”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

My wife and I just got back from our cruise, where we were fortunate enough to take this excursion with Sean and Sean. The kayaking was beatiful and a great way to see a very pristine piece of the island. Hermit crab races were fun and the hike to the blowhole was beautiful. Also, although snorkeling was short, it was very nice and we got to get close to a lot of different types of fishes. All in all, I would highly recommend this for anyone who does not want to sit on a bus and see the island in the traditional sense. Thank you for the awesome experience.
