Overview
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.
Highlights
  • Single tour to explore the mangrove lagoon via both kayaking and snorkeling
  • Beginner-friendly tour: all gear and instructions provided 
  • Lockers to store valuables and belongings during the activity
  • Refuel with a snack of candy and water
What to Expect
Meet your guide at the Mangrove Lagoon Wildlife Sanctuary and Marine Preserve, located on St. Thomas' southern coast. Get an orientation and safety briefing, then get fitted for your kayak and snorkel gear before heading out to Patricia Cay and Long Point. The provided kayak allows you to glide easily through the small channels and around tiny islands planted with mangroves. Your guide will point out local wildlife, such as spotted rays and stingrays, as they swim around and under your kayak. Switch modes of exploration and don your snorkel equipment to get a peek below the waterline. Your guide will be with you the entire time to answer questions and provide any directions to those new to snorkeling. Back in the kayak, enjoy being warmed by the sun during the quick paddle back to the marina, where your tour ends.

Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and patient with us as this was our first time kayaking. He pointed out lots of marine life and also provided education on the plant life. Meeting the hermit crabs and walking around the Caye was our favorite part. We had a wonderful

The tour was a great experience! There was lots to do- hiking, kayaking, and snorkeling. We kayaked for a good bit along the mangrove lagoon. We then took a few minutes off to race hermit crabs, and then went on a easy hike (more of a nature walk) near tidal pools. I wish we
