“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

Travis and Tyler took just 3 of us out for the afternoon and it was fantastic. We were the first group of the day to snorkel so that allowed us to see some rare aquatic life (spotted eagle ray amongst others). The kayak portion can be a little exhausting especially on a single. The hike was short, but full of local history. I would highly recommend this trip especially if you're staying on the island looking for things to do. The $80 price tag was well worth the few hours.

“Mangrove Lagoon Kayaking, Hiking, & Snorkeling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

Josh took us on a exceptional tour of the Mangrove Lagoon plus hiking to the Blow Hole and snorkeling. What made the trip truly exceptional was the vast knowledge Josh shared with us about the ecosystem and the history of the area. We learned names and comprehensive information about the aquatic and terrestrial plants and critters we found. Along with being an educational experience, he also make it lots of fun with his quick wit and sense of humor. We highly recommend this tour just outside of Red Hook, St. Thomas. Thanks for a great trip, Josh!

“It would probably depend on your guide for this to be good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

We went to this trip to Kayak and snorkel and got so much more from our guide Derek. The Kayaking is minimal and not tiring even if you have not done it before. Our guide made the trip as he was really into nature and the things we would see and he pointed out to us things that we would not have seen were it not for his enthusiasm, We did not see a whole lot of fish but what we saw was great. We talked to others that took the trip and they did not enjoy it as much so it must be the guide that you get. We also lucked out and were one of two couples so it was a small intimate group instead of larger ones that went out.

“great for first time snorkelers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

We booked this ourselves (even though we were on a cruise that stopped in St Thomas for the day). It was very convenient and a lot of fun. It was the first experience of snorkeling in the ocean for two of my children and they really enjoyed it. The water was calm and not very deep which made it perfect for a first experience. Our guide KK was patient and knowledgeable. Loved learning about the area while on the short hike and the kids really liked the hermit crabs. We also purchased the photo CD offered and there were some great shots. Overall a great experience.
