About
Combine kayaking and snorkeling in a single express tour, with all equipment provided, in St. Thomas' mangrove lagoon. The maze of clear, twisting tributaries through the mangrove forest may be challenging to navigate on your own, but with a guide in the lead, you can focus on the scenery. Listen as your guide points out local flora and fauna, then dive in to explore the underwater world on a snorkeling excursion.

What to expect
  • Meet your guide at the Mangrove Lagoon Wildlife Sanctuary and Marine Preserve, located on St. Thomas' southern coast. Get an orientation and safety briefing, then get fitted for your kayak and snorkel gear before heading out to Patricia Cay and Long Point. The provided kayak allows you to glide easily through the small channels and around tiny islands planted with mangroves. Your guide will point out local wildlife, such as spotted rays and stingrays, as they swim around and under your kayak. Switch modes of exploration and don your snorkel equipment to get a peek below the waterline. Your guide will be with you the entire time to answer questions and provide any directions to those new to snorkeling. Back in the kayak, enjoy being warmed by the sun during the quick paddle back to the marina, where your tour ends.

Dennis out tour guide was great and very knowledgable about the area. He led us on a beautiful kayak tour and then short hike along the coast to see some of the plants and wildlife and then photo op at a blowhole. The snorkeling was okay but the overall experience was relaxing and and active at the same time which is what we wanted. Id definitely do this tour again. Thanks Dennis!!

The kayaking was fine but the snorkeling wasn't great. It would be better on a reef. Not much fish. The guide *ShayLyn) was helpful when my husband had some problems with his back from the seat.

Loved the hike, the tour guide (Swish)'s informative discussions and the snorkeling.
Unfortunately the scheduled tour guide had car problems and could not make the tour. They called Swish in and he did an excellent job.
The tour company apologized for the delay and offered us free pictures and a rash guard. These, and Swish's enthusiasm and knowledge made up for the delay

Definitely a must do. Cost effective and beginner friendly. My husband and I had alot of fun. Big Shout out to Shay. She was very professional and patient with us. We were having such a hard time kayaking in the beginning but she took her time and helped us out. We are grateful to Shay and the whole team. They are amazing!

Loved this adventurous trip; we were a small group of 4 and all had such a great time.
Our tour guides Denise and Andy were a definite asset to this trip with nothing being too much trouble for either with answers to questions about culture, flora and fauna including Denise being knowledgeable and well researched and many of his stories made each of the various endeavors entertaining. They kept us informed of necessary safety precautions adhered to. I highly recommend this tour and our wonderful guides!

We had great fun with Jelani and Kellz today! Jelani’s knowledge of the area was outstanding and the chocolate treat after snorkeling was a nice surprise! We would love to see some of the pictures he took! Recommended!

We had a great time with our guide Dennis. He was very knowledgeable about the island and fun. We even requested Dennis as our guide for another tour on St. John but unfortunately there was a conflict. Overall recommend St. John over St. Thomas but both are nice.
