Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Make your way to the southern coast of St Thomas, home to the protected Mangrove Lagoon Wildlife Sanctuary and Marine Preserve. Meet your local adventure guide to embark on one of St Thomas' most rewarding snorkeling and kayaking tours in the preserve's rich ecosystem.

Travel through the protected area to Patricia Cay and Long Point, where you'll board your kayak to glide through the may small islands in the mangrove lagoon. While paddling, look out for spotted rays and stingrays as they glide beneath your boat. 

Put on your provided snorkel gear and explore the underwater world. Follow your guide's lead and feel free to ask any questions or directions, especially if it's your first time snorkeling. Peer through your mask at the coral-fringed mangrove roots and listen as your guide points out the vibrant surrounding marine life. Hop back in your kayak for the short paddle back to the marina.

Emanuel and Shimoi were the best tour guides! Informational and fun. The kayaking was challenging but awesome. Snorkeling was amazing.

We didn’t love this tour. Their was a large group of young people and the tour guide had a great time with them but ignored the middle age people. It was a tiny bit of learning about the mangroves but mostly kayaking for 2 hours. The snorkeling was not great. Saw maybe 2 fish. We would not take this tour again. Also, it’s not a restaurant. We tried it, food was ok, but it’s not set up to be a restaurant

Tour guide was great! Dhaden was his name. I enjoyed the kayaking and snorkeling...even though I didn’t see much while snorkeling. I could have done without the hike at my age!
Amazing Tour!

Excellent experience with the tour guides, DHaden and Emmanuel. Very informative and funny, they definitely made us feel welcome. They providedy plenty of water which was absolutely necessary. The tour was completely amazing and the views were breathtaking. Definitely recommend to visit them while visiting St Thomas.

Really fun snorkeling. Our guide was really cool he took us on a mini hike to see hermit crabs. He gave really easy to follow instructions. I'm not a swimmer but I felt confident with the help of the instructor.

So much fun! The tour guide was very informative and even threw in some jokes for the ride. 🤣 the kayak part was great, a little rough on the way out because of the wind, but nothing newbies and children couldn't handle. The snorkeling was cool too. We got to hold a sea cucumber and sea urchint. Very fun experience.
