What to expect
  • 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. If you select the hiking option, visit Cas Cay, an unspoiled deserted island. Home many endangered or threatened bird species like white-cheeked pintail ducks, brown pelicans, roseate terns and herons, this island is part of the Virgin Islands Park System. Visit the island's coral and shell beaches, volcanic cliffs, blow hole and tidal pools.  Worry-free shore excursion: We will ensure that your activity ends with ample time for you to get back to the cruise port before your ship departs. In the unlikely event that your ship has already departed, we will arrange transportation to your next port-of-call. Please see Viator's terms and conditions for full details.

If you're in St. Thomas....BOOK THIS!
Sep 2021
Start to Finish an amazing time! We got lucky and had a few trainees come out with us too and they all were knowledgeable and extremely helpful. If we weren't leaving the day after the tour we'd have done it again it was so fun.

The main tour guide looked young enough to be my son, but what he lacked in age, he made up for in Knowledge of the surrounding environment/seal life, Constant Awareness, and just a well-manored individual.

If you're in St. Thomas, BOOK THIS Tour.

Must Do Adventure
Apr 2021 • Solo
Ok-so this was by far the best tour I did while on vacation!!!! The crew were amazing: organized, knowledgeable, and fun. Shore and Pat were awesome hosts. The combo of kayaking, hiking, and snorkeling was perfect.
Definitely a must do while in St. Thomas!

Great morning kayaking and snorkeling
Nov 2020 • Couples
We did the 3 hour mangrove lagoon kayak, hike and snorkeling tour and felt that it was the perfect amount of time. It was my first time kayaking and snorkeling but everyone else in the group has previous experience so I think the tour is great for beginners and experienced folks. Our tour guide, Kevin, was funny, knowledgeable about the local sealife and flora on Cay Island and he took some great pictures of the group. He also brought plenty of water for the group. Bring a hat and wear sunscreen because you're exposed the whole time. I also recommend wearing water shoes or bringing some footwear for the hike portion of the trip.

It was just ok
Jul 2020 • Couples
It was just ok. Snorkeling masks were broken (only a few, we just happen to get those ones). They "candy and drinks" was a mini mostly melted kit Kat and 1 bottle of water. There were several thing that happened in outing.

I do believe that you can make your own experience fun. That it's what we did. We had fun.

A bit of advice. Make sure who ever you go with that you communicate very well. Otherwise this trip will be difficult. Also, be prepared for a 3 hour work out. We were all exhausted when it was over.

Highly recommend!!!
May 2020 • Friends
I had a great experience with Virgin Islands Ecotours. I went in expecting it to be a kayaking excursion through the mangroves, but it was so much more! There was also snorkeling and a short hike with so much cool information and history along the way. The equipment was great, the tour guide (Lance) was great, overall it was a wonderful day and I’d highly recommend this to anyone visiting or living on the Virgin Islands!

Kayaking was fun but embarrasing
May 2019
My sister, brother-in-law, and me went on a private Kayaking trip with Sherrie through this company Virgin Islands Ecotours. We loved our Guide. Sherri was knowledgeable, insightful about the area, and just fun! She'll always remember me, because soon after we left dock, I got my paddle caught in a tree limb and fell in the water! Sherrie was a trooper and made sure I was okay and I was fine, just wet. I made a review earlier about this experience but said Janet was our Guide, and I was mistaken, her name is Sherri. She had the nicest personality and I would recommend her as a Guide for any Island experience because you could tell she enjoys her work which made it delightful for us, even though I was wet. Cruise line groups are too large. We had a private tour and will do it again using the same company next time we go.
