This is an awesome trip for the entire family. The guide was very nice and extremely knowledgeable of the island and the ecosystem of the island. The water is a little rough but overall a really nice way to spend the day on St. John.

This was highlight of our trip! Our guide, Tyler was so knowledgeable about the history of St. John. During our hike she explained how the cactus were used as a barbed wire around the perimeter of the plantations and how different plants can be used, including to relieve sunburn we we had and she showed us how to rub the oil from the leaves onto the sunburn. While snorkeling we saw at least 6 sea turtles, a few stingrays and even a reef shark. After our tour, we were told we could stay and use the amenities chairs, floaties, snorkel gear, etc. at Honeymoon Beach for the rest of the day a 49 pp value. The area is so incredible. If you are visiting St. John or even if you're considering a day trip from St. Thomas - this should make the top of your to do list. If possible, request Tyler.

This tour with Michael was the highlight of our trip to St. John. We learned so much from Michael on the hike and snorkel portions and he was very patient with us as first-time kayakers. It was the perfect way to spend a morning and I can't recommend it highly enough!

Mike was an awesome tour guide. He's top notch! Learned much about the plant life, insects of St John, underwater life, etc. You feel like you actually have an understanding of the mysteries of the island after you finish the tour with Mike. I highly recommend this tour.

this was my first time to St. John so I booked this tour. It was amazing!! Our guide, Will, was extremely knowledgeable about all things St. John and took time and care to share with us. He took care of us and showed us the beauty of this island from the water and the land. highly recommended!

This was exactly what we were hoping for. Patrick, our guide, was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable and curtailed our experience to our skill level and interests. I'd do it again without question.

Did the 3 hour afternoon tour with Patrick, our guide, who was awesome and super knowledgable! I'm not athletic at all ... I'm a city girl that has minimal exercise... The kayaking was a little bit exhausting we definitely fell behind but Patrick was very understanding and waited for us. Overall, it was informative and fun. Highly recommend it!!
