Fun in the Sun!
, May 2022
This experience although it began with a guide who didn't showed up turned out to be amazing. Our new guide took it upon himself to take on two excursions and showed us a wonderful time. His knowledge was outstanding and he did a great job showing us all the various sea creatures during the snorkeling. The manager also worked with us to make up for the mishap with the first guide.
Exceptional Tour - Learn About Nature/Wildlife While Enjoying a Physical Challenge Kayaking, Hiking, Snorkling
, Mar 2022
Upon arrival my wife and I discovered that we had a private tour. And while not planned, we certainly were treated as being special. From the initial welcome, through a discussion on available outfitting and gear from the small shop that delighted my wife and ensured we were properly prepared. My wife is a Docent at the Detroit Zoological Park, so anything to do with nature and wildlife is seriously judged. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable both about the island, the area, and also about the fish and wildlife; plants and trees; and geological history of the lagoon and island. He also was exceptionally open, seeking our input or physical readiness condition for every challenging activity (kayaking against the wind, climbing rock formations, hiking through nature in the sun, Snorkling through the bay and always encouraging hydration or serving us special energy treats (chocolate candy bars). We learned a lot, had fun and did not feel overly stressed or physically burned out. Nice tour finish with a cool drink, and sharing a photo collage that was taken of us throughout our tour, prepared by our guide. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone that loves nature, wants to learn a lot about wildlife, and enjoys a little physical challenge. Mark and Donna Battle - Michigan
Exactly what we hoped it would be

We went on a 9AM tour with Sherie. She was a great tour guide, fully involved in the experience. I loved that we ended up essentially getting our own private tour and avoided crowds by going early. Snorkeling was great, got to see starfish and a variety of fish under the water. The lunch was a sandwich and chips, nothing super fancy, but was fine. Enjoyed it a lot!
Must do for St Thomas

Loved how chilled and knowledgeable our tour guide D’Haden was. We talked and laughed a lot and we learned so much! This tour was something special and we highly recommend. Food was also excellent.
Amazing Tour Guide!
, Dec 2021
Dennis was our tour guide and he is amazing at what he does. He took beautiful photos during our tour. He also showed an immense amount of knowledge of the landscape, the animals that inhabit it, and the history of that space. If you ever go to Virgin Islands Ecotour, your experience will for surely be heightened for the better if Dennis is your tour guide!
Mangrove Snorkel & Hike
, Dec 2021
Our guide Soren was very friendly and made the trip worth the money. We saw an environment we’ve never seen and he would show us animals and let us take pictures with them! Lunch was included and the hike wasn’t too long and we saw spectacular views of the ocean! Would definitely recommend trying this out! Picture package was great too!
Great Experience but I got scammed with transportation
, Aug 2021
The experience was definitely 5 stars. I would advise to do your own research when it comes to transportation to get there because we asked for round trip transportation and got scammed into paying more. When I asked for partial money back I got denied. A man picked us up from our hotel and dropped us there but when it was time to leave he got money hungry and took others. When we asked for another cab the driver told us they didn’t pay him and we had to pay him. They take their drivers money it seems
A must

Shore was a knowledgeable and fun guide! He took some great photos throughout the tour and we really enjoyed ourselves.

Highly recommend
, Apr 2021
We were the only two on the tour. Sherri was a great tour guide. The snorkeling was unique compared to other snorkeling we did on the island. We got to touch the jelly fish and hold a giant star fish. Lunch was a hearty sub sandwich and Sherri offered us chocolate and tangerines after each snorkel. Make sure to lather up on the sunscreen and bring a brimmed hat and sunglasses. We wore clothes over our bathing suits that could get wet which was very fortunate because we climbed in the whirlpool on the hike fully clothed. Highly recommend versatile clothes and hiking sandals that can get wet (like Tevas or Columbia sandals). It is a good amount of kayaking but the water is pretty calm so it isn’t tough. Highly recommend this tour to see a unique part of the island and get a nice personalized tour. We were traveling during a time when there weren’t any cruise ships so that likely contributed to the serenity of the tour.

Must Do!!!!
, Apr 2021
This was the perfect birthday gift for my boyfriend on our first vacation. This was both of our first time Kayaking and Snorkeling. The entire excursion was 5 hours.... we did a lot of kayaking which was a great experience and our guide Sherie was amazing! We lucked out and it ended up just being my and my boyfriend on the tour which made it more romantic and intimate... Sherie offered to take pictures of our entire tour for $30 ... It was perfect! She captured a lot of memorable moments... The hike was informative and the picnic lunch was perfect! I sooooooo recommended this excursion just be ready to really kayak.... lol
