The combination of kayaking and snorkeling was so much fun. Mark was a terrific guide and taught us so much about the hidden reefs and underwater life. Beginners and experienced kayakers and snorkelers would love this trip. As we kayaked back into HaulOver Bay, we had a pleasant surprise of seeing Captain Pete's floating bar with delicious rum punch to... More

We had a great trip with Mark from Hidden Reef. We kayaked from Haul Over Bay and snorkeled in two spots, including Pelican Cay. Mark is an amateur naturalist who has positive energy, good knowledge and is great with kids. Highly recommend.

Just right tour! Cory was an excellent guide - entertaining and chill ! A short, not too strenuous kayak ride out to an moderate hike (relaxing walk) to a little beach where we were able to do a bit of snorkeling - good time!

They cancelled our outing two days before our trip for "unforeseen circumstances " and said we couldn't reschedule because they aren't booking anything for two months. Bummer. Hope all is okay for them. We found another tour company in coral bay that we ended up being very happy with. It all worked out in the end.

We effectively lost our lease and were kicked out of our tour location without warning. At the moment we are trying to take care of the issue but because... More

My fiancé, my brothers, my sister in laws and myself, just returned from the Virgin Islands. While there we took a day to go to St. John and kayak and snorkel. Sarah was our guide and she was AWESOME! Very knowledgeable and truly just loves what she does. We kayaked out into the Caribbean Sea, and then snorkeled along the... More

We had a real nice 3 hr. kayak/snorkel tour around some areas of the island we had not visited. Allie was our guide, and even though she was new at this, she was full of energy and tried really hard to point out the wonders of the coral reefs. My wife and I had a great time and would love... More

Our kayaking and snorkeling adventure with Ally was great-----just what we wanted! Away from all the crowds in a beautiful bay to enjoy St. John. Our check in and boat familiarization at the kayak trailer was quick and painless, so we got a quick start. There were two couples plus Ally, so it was a very personalized tour! She is... More

We did the kayak and snorkel adventure, and loved it. My husband isn't the best swimmer and was a bit concerned that he wouldn't feel comfortable with the snorkeling, but he wore his life jacket and was completely fine! Unfortunately I got sunscreen or something in my eye right before the trip and was the worst party pooper having to... More
