Overview
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.

Great experience

Had a great tour with Sean, he was so knowledgeable and showed us so many cool things. The kayaking was rigorous, but not too much and really fun. It was a great way to experience the mangroves up close and the private beach was beautiful.

Hands down the best tour I have had.

Had a blast kayaking and was amazing see under water snorkeling to experience the colorful life of the reef. Our tour guide Sabrina showed us the great spots and ecological importance of different habitats.

Great experience

We started off by meeting our guide Allison. We were part of a small group and we got right to our tour after some necessary paperwork. The tour was great and Alison was very knowledgeable and pointed out several highlights that we would have likely...More
