What You Can Expect
I was skeptical to book any tours prior to our arrival but I am really glad we booked this tour through Viator. My boyfriend and I weren't staying in St, John so we took a cab from the Ferry terminal to Caneel Bay and walked about .75 of a mile through the resort to the top of Honeymoon beach where we were greeted by our tour-guide Patrick and his team! Much to our delight there was only one other couple who would be heading out with us they mentioned tour groups vary in size 4 - 10 people. Day locks were provided to secure our belongings and Patrick brought plenty of water bottles for our tour. We started out with a quick kayak trip to a private beach within the Caneel resort where we began our hike. The hike was great and Patrick was incredibly knowledgeable! I recommend hiking in sneakers or water shoes as it is rocky and muddy but people did hike in flip flops and were fine. After the hike we snorkeled and this was my favorite part because Patrick snorkeled with us! He made the sea turtles come to the surface and pointed out awesome things we wouldn't have noticed on our own. After snorkeling we headed back to Honeymoon Beach via Kayak. There were several restrooms to use along the way including a great restroom on the Caneel property. Upon our return they advised we could use any of the rental equipment chairs, paddleboards, etc for the remainder of the day! After our tour we went to Caneel Resort for lunch and then came back to Honeymoon beach for relaxing! I definitely recommend the morning tour which is what we did.
Two small cons to mention - the snack was 1 chips-ahoy cookie and by the end of the trip I was starving -- we were gone from 930ish-130ish. It was also chilly when we got out of the water post snorkel, would have been nice if Patrick had a few small towels handy.
All in all awesome tour - I wish Patrick could have showed us the entire island of St. John!!
Unfortunately, our tour was canceled due to rough seas, but the staff who take care of Honeymoon Beach at Caneel Bay where the tour starts were fantastic. We spent the previous day at the beach there and enjoyed the all-day beach pass, which included paddleboards, kayaks, beach chairs and snorkel gear. Would highly recommend this spot.
