2:00pm Kayak and Snorkel Tour
Afternoon kayak and snorkel tour on the Mangrove Lagoon. Departs at 2:00pm.
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.

Wonderful time!! Loved the hermit crab racing, snorkling, and tide pools!

We loved this excursion and felt the guides were knowlegable and professional! Since we were kayaking to the island, we didn't bring anything we didn't want to get wet (i.e. phones, towels, etc.). They stored all our items in a locker (no charge) and brought...More
