Our tour guide was Yosh and he was fantastic, very knowledgeable about the plant and wildlife that we encountered throughout the tour. One of the coolest parts of the tour was a stop on 'Happy Island' where Yosh told us about... More

Our guide Jonah was the best!!!!!!! Knew some island stuff and he was really entertaining. Kayaking part is slightly challenging, especially when we leave the still water and go into the slightly turbulent water out into the bay. There was an elderly couple with us and the lady has never kayaked before but they made it out just fine. Jonah... More

We LOVED our tour with Cory! My boyfriend and I went on the 3-hour kayak, hike, and snorkel tour to Cas Cay. Cory was friendly, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and fun to be around; we really enjoyed learning from him! You can tell he loves the natural beauty of the islands. The tour itself was so fun. We loved learning about the... More

Our family did the 5 hour kayak, hike, multi-snorkel. While we had some rain off and on, overall the tour was a success. Helpful if you have kayaked before. Suggest you bring water shoes, or shoes you don't mind wearing in the water for the hike. The hike is through tidal pools over sharp volcanic rock. Also, it is worth... More

Tour guides were great...helpful, entertaining, and informative. Favorite part was the kayaking but it was hot and a long ride... be prepared to paddle a ways. Hike is more like a walk.... nothing strenuous. I wasn't comfortable snorkling but stayed in shallow end where a few schools of fish swam by me so I still enjoyed it. My husband did... More

We had a private tour with Michael on St. John Island because no others signed up. We went kayaking, took a hike around the Island and saw some beautiful majestic views , Then we went snorkeling we saw various fish and sea turtles and sea urchins and coral. Michael was very knowledgeable about the islands and flora and fauna. He... More

My friend and I were very fortunate to have Michael as our guide for the morning. He explained things well, listened to our questions, and was knowledgeable about plants, animals, and the history of St. John. We kayaked across the bay, hiked Mary's Trail, and went snorkeling. It was an excellent way to see some of the Virgin Islands National... More

We took a private 2.5hr kayak/snorkeling tour today and it was awesome. Our guide Richele was the best, she was fun and informative and we all had the best time. We couldn't recommend this more, just a great start to our day, thanks Richele:)

We took this kayaking, hiking, snorkeling tour to appreciate the natural beauty of the island and find some adventure. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and took very good care of us. While kayaking among the mangroves in this peaceful lagoon, there were breathtaking views of the mountains and the sea splashing on a reef. The walk took us to... More

We were a group of seven which included three generations. The guides, Lars and Lulu, were wonderful at accommodating all skill levels (kayaking and snorkeling) and providing lots of interesting historical and scientific information.
