Kayak & Snorkeling Adventure Cruise Tour

Two things are certain about this Kayak and Snorkel Adventure: first, you'll have the time of your life exploring St. Thomas' diverse marine ecosystem; and second, you may never want to return to civilization!

The southern coast of St. Thomas is home to the attractive and protected Mangrove Lagoon Wildlife Sanctuary and Marine Preserve. Its exceptional natural resources are filled with scenic contrasts: manglar islands, rocky cliffs, shallow clear waters with seagrass beds, salt ponds, and panoramic ridgelines. These natural areas provide a rich nursery habitat for offshore coral reef fish and invertebrates, and homes to nesting egrets, pelicans, herons and terns. On this St. Thomas excursion nature guides take you through the protected Inner Mangrove Lagoon Marine Reserve to Long Point at Patricia Cay. Kayak among the many small islands of the Mangrove Lagoon.

Next, snorkel along the clear, protected waters of a coral-fringed mangrove nursery. Guides offer snorkeling instruction, point out the marine life, and interpret the diverse mangrove ecosystem.

Please note: Your St. Thomas excursion departs from and returns to the marina located near the Mangrove Lagoon Wildlife Sanctuary and Marine Preserve. Transfers to and from the marina before and after your tour are not included in the tour price.

A good mix of kayaking and snorkeling. The guide was a young beach bum who ran a good tour, laid back, easy going! These rest of the group were first time kayakers and he managed them very well. The tour was easily accessible by taxis from the ferry dock and prices are regulated. Don't be scared off by half hour taxis ride.

The guide, Travis, was wonderful and provided knowlege about the area. Kayaking was beautiful and relaxed, but the snorkeling was not very colorful. If you want great snorkeling I would go somwehere else, but otherwise this trip was great value, and the small tour group was a huge plus!
