He also had a lot of great stories and information about the history of the area ranging from tales of pirates to wacky dolphin research. We stopped on a dead coral barrier and explored finding starfish,... More

My friend and I recently took a girls trip to St. Thomas. She is very outdoorsy while I am more of a "lounge on the beach" type of gal. That being said, I was a little weary when she told me she had signed us up for a night kayaking tour. Despite my reservations I was committed to trying something... More

Kayak, "hike" (more of a walk along the beach than a hike) and snorkel was a great way to spend the day in St Thomas. Troy was our guide and was very knowledgeable of the water sites as well as the land sites; very friendly and helpful. Learned a lot about the mangroves and had fun seeing other sea and... More

Looking for a chance to snorkel and kayak we ended up choosing the kayak, hike and snorkel and enjoyed it all. Our guide Mark was enthusiastic and knowledgeable on the history of the island and the plants and animals. We wouldn't hesitate to do it again!

Went on the 3 hour kayak, hike, snorkel tour. Ian, our guide, was fantastic. Very knowledgeable about the local environment. I found it a little strenuous but I'm a grandma with slight asthma so if I can do it most people should be able to handle it. 😊

My wife and I booked this excursion because we were looking for one with high activity. Well, after 3.5 miles of kayaking, a short hike, and snorkeling...that's exactly what we received. In addition, our guide "Troy" was fantastic. He was entertaining and very knowledgeable about the mangroves, the area, and the island. The snorkeling was not our best, but if... More

Took both the Kayak, Snorkel and Hike Tour as well as the Pirate Ghost Tour. Had the same tour guide, Rachel for both tours. She was informative, friendly, and made sure that everyone on her tour was taken care of and received the best experience possible. I highly recommend Virgin Islands Ecotours.
