Kayak in the Mangrove Lagoon
Kayak in St. Thomas' Mangrove Lagoon on this incredible excursion. The region's serpentine channels of clear, calm waters are perfect for swimming, boating, and spotting local wildlife such as stingrays and brown pelicans.
Upon arrival to the marina, meet your local adventure guide to embark on one of St. Thomas' most incredible kayaking tours in the preserve's vibrant ecosystem. You will receive a safety briefing and a map of the lagoon, along with a kayak, life jacket, and snorkel gear. The favorite kayaking parts of the sanctuary are within a one-square-mile.
Travel through the protected area to Patricia Cay and Long Point, where you will board your kayak and glide through the small islands in the mangrove lagoon. While paddling, make sure you look out for spotted rays and stingrays as they swim beneath your boat.
One of the many highlights of this incredible experience is the opportunity of snorkeling. Put on the snorkel gear and explore the underwater world. Follow your guide's lead; if this is your first-time snorkeling, feel free to ask your guide any questions. Once you have established confidence in your snorkeling abilities, peer through your mask at the coral-fringed mangrove roots and listen as you are guided through this amazing marine life.
As your adventure ends, hop back into your kayak as you paddle back to the marina. Make sure you capture all the beauty surrounding this incredible area, and its beautiful flora and fauna.
