Overview
With a naturalist guide in the lead, take a boat or kayak to a habitat frequented by St. Thomas' sea turtle population. Hear tips on how to snorkel (equipment included) or swim in the calm, shallow water without disturbing the turtles. Post-swim, retreat to a sunny beach for some time to relax, sip drinks, and refuel with lunch. A small group of fewer than six people ensures an intimate atmosphere.
What to Expect
Choose how you'd like to travel to the secluded St. Thomas bay: via guided walk, boat, or sit-on-top kayak. You'll travel with a nature guide who’s experienced in sea turtle behavior and a small group of no more than six people, which guarantees personalized attention and an intimate atmosphere.

On the way, listen to commentary about St. Thomas' unique ecosystem and get a primer on how to swim respectfully in the turtles' habitat. Once you arrive, slip into the provided snorkel, mask, and flippers, and slide into the water. Your guide will accompany you to ensure your safety and comfort while snorkeling, making this tour suitable even for beginners. Watch the turtles swim around the bay and chomp on the sea grass lining the bottom; bring your waterproof camera if you'd like to take photos.

Hit the beach to dry off, relax, and enjoy a provided lunch before heading home.
