Sea Turtle Snorkel and Nature Walk Tour
USD 129.00
Experience swimming with sea turtles and a guided nature walk on this small group tour with time for a beach break. Snorkeling is in crystal clear water where you are guaranteed to see multiple sea turtles! This tour includes:  pick up and drop off at your hotel or cruise ship port, lunch at a beach-side restaurant, photos, beverages and a snack. Perfect for beginner or experienced snorkelers!
What to Expect

Relax on a scenic drive from your cruise ship port or hotel to the west end of the island where we will take a 10 minute ferry to a small tropical island (no passport required), where your guide will give you a historical overview of the beautiful island. You'll take a short nature walk with stops for your guide to tell you about the native flowers, plants and trees in sight. You'll learn about the rich US Virgin Island's history and a peek into island life on your way to an overlook of the bay where your guide will take photos. Soon you will arrive at the picturesque beach where you will have a break before your snorkel.  

Next, you will set out on a snorkeling adventure with your guide who will provide a lesson, equipment and assistance. Your guide will take you out in the protected area of the bay where you will see multiple sea turtles in their natural habitat and admire the view of the turtles. Photos will be taken throughout your tour, including underwater which may include a photo of you and a turtle if you are lucky! You will snorkel for approximately 45 minutes.

Afterwards, you will come back to the beach to enjoy lunch at a beach-side restaurant with picnic tables shaded by canopies and umbrellas. Fare includes burgers, sandwiches, fish tacos, salads, etc. There will be time to relax on the beach where chaise lounge chairs and shade from umbrellas are available at no charge. After about 45-60 mins of beach time, you will join your guide for a return walk to the boat landing and a short ride back to the marina where your driver will be waiting to take you back to your cruise ship port or hotel.

This tour includes pick up and drop off at your hotel or cruise ship port, photos, lunch at a beach-side restaurant, snorkel gear, a cooler of cold bottled water and a snack.

A water taxi is a very comfortable boat that gets you from the port across the harbor to the island where the turtles are. Easy boat ride - someone will help if there is any difficulty. The captain was very pleasant. Once... More
