We (parents with our 14 year old son) went on a hike, kayak, and snorkel trip with our guide Patrick. He's very knowledgeable about the island's history, plants and animals and kept us safe during the trip. By far the highlight of the trip was snoring with the turtles. I've attached a couple of the photos that I took, but... More

We had an awesome day trip with Patrick. We learned a ton about St. John and its diverse environment and rich history. The snorkeling in both Caneel Bay & Henley Cay was unique and mesmerizing. Highly recommend this trip for anyone with the curiosity to learn more and a desire to see some of the true highlights of the island.

We did the 3 hour Kayak, hike, and snorkel tour. The Kayak was an easy cruise and very informational. Our tour guide James answered all of our questions about mangroves, lagoon area, and gave us info about restaurants and hiking trails on st John. The snorkel was also in very calm water. We saw a string ray and multiple types... More

What fun to kayak then hike, see views, learn about nature, tarantula fish, then the best part swim with turtles, rays, great reef. Patrick is a great guide and full of knowledge! We were a mixed group from 10 to 60 years old. All had great fun and could keep up!

We booked a morning hike/kayak/snorkel tour and were ably guided by Patrick and Tyler. Departing from honeymoon beach at Caneel Bay resort, the day starts with a short walk to the beach from the parking lot ($20 to park but free once Eco Tour validates your ticket-so think about staying after your tour to enjoy the beach). We even got... More
