About
Combine kayaking and snorkeling in a single express tour, with all equipment provided, in St. Thomas' mangrove lagoon. The maze of clear, twisting tributaries through the mangrove forest may be challenging to navigate on your own, but with a guide in the lead, you can focus on the scenery. Listen as your guide points out local flora and fauna, then dive in to explore the underwater world on a snorkeling excursion.

AMAZING DAY! AMAZING TOUR GUIDE! All around FANTASTIC!
Sep 2021
We have lived in St Thomas for 2 years and just got around to doing the kayak / hike / snorkel tour with VI Eco Tours...and it was AMAZING! We learned so much about the plant and marine life in the Virgin Islands and saw BEAUTIFUL landscapes on the hike / kayak and incredible underwater creatures snorkeling. EVERYONE at VI Eco Tours was kind, friendly and professional. Our guide, D'Haden was one of THE BEST on the island. He was funny, smart, kind and engaging. I HIGHLY recommend this tour for anyone coming to visit St Thomas - and I will be referring all of my friends and family to D'Haden for an AWESOME DAY!!!!

"Swish"/Devlin was a great tour guide
Aug 2021
We did the mangrove and snorkel tour. It was a great experience. Our guide, Devlin, was very good at explaining the ecosystem and the various things we encountered on the tour.

We saw a lot of fish, an octopus, puffer fish while snorkeling.

If we are in St thomas again we will likely do another VI Eco tour.

Great experience for the whole fam!
Aug 2021 • Family
These guys are great. We were traveling with children and were a bit nervous but they took great care of us. They are great with kids! Devlin was our trip leader with another amazing assistant. We had a great experience! Would highly recommend. Great value for the price. They will take pictures for you for just $30. So don’t worry about taking your phone/ camera. Put in lots of sunscreen and wear a hat. You can leave it the kayak when you get to the snorkel bit. Wear water shoes if possible.

Great excursion, and Emmanuel rocks.
We did the hike, kayak and snorkel 3 hour trip, and it was great. Our guide, Emmanuel was very knowledgeable and friendly. He showed us interesting things along the hike and while kayaking, then pointed out some great stuff while snorkeling. He took great pictures of us along the way as well. He then arranged for our ride back to our resort. Totally recommend this!

One of a kind experience
Aug 2021 • Couples
The Staff Here Were Exceptional and the team goes above and beyond all around . Our Tour Guide Emanuel was very kind and knowledgeable as well as patient when it came to leading the tour. After our visit ended we unfortunately were in an accident with one of our taxi’s (no fault of anyone on the staff) . The whole staff came over to make sure me and my girlfriend were okay and even paid for our replacement taxi and Emanuel himself even offer to take us to our resort after finishing his tour .The following day the owner Sybille reached out to follow to assure we were okay and even offered to refund us our admission. We declined as we enjoyed our self and felt as it was no fault of there’s however Sybille Insisted that she at least pay for our admission at honeymoon beach on St. John Island as well as offer complimentary meals. All in all the staff here were great and it’s nice to see just pure humans show compassion for one another even complete strangers they’ve never met.

A Great Kayaking Experience with my husband
This was an amazing time. The hosts were very friendly and explained everything about the tour. They both had a sense of humor. All of the people there gave great customer service. They even will call a taxi for you or recommend places to go and eat. Will definitely be back.
