Great tour with plenty of info and just the right amount of activity for us. We were lucky to be the only couple that day and Jessie, our wonderful guide, customized it to our needs and skills. She shared her enthusiasm for the fauna and flora very well and led us to the right spots to sample what St John offers. I even got to see more turtles on that day than through multiple prior tours. Returning to Honeymoon Beach to lounge or enjoy water sports in the protected bay was perfect.
Jason was our guide and he did a great job of offering insights and information on the island. Snorkeling was not fantastic because of weather but we did see sea turtles, fish and star fish. Kayaking and hiking gave us a real insight to the development of St. John.. Would highly recommend the trip.
The tour was great with a little taste of kayaking, hiking, and snorkeling. Our guide, Ben, was fun, energetic, and shared his knowledge if the island with us. Great trip!
WOW, What an excellent Trip! My wife and I booked this echo tour and had a blast. Our tour guide Hayden was fantastic. Very knowledgeable on the history of the area, marine life, etc. Without him we would have just wandered around the island and missed all the important facts. Coming back in 2 years and bringing the whole family to take this tour. Highlight of our trip. Definite bucket list fulfilled! Thanks
We loved it! Austin took great pictures and had a fun personality! We got to observe tarantulas, swim with turtles and see many fish! It's a good variety of activity in a few short hours!
The tour was fantastic. Patrick our guide was knowledgeable, fun and really made sure we had some great experiences. Would highly recommend the 3 hour tour and Patrick.
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.
This tour was amazing! Lots of fun. Our guide customized it for our group and it was fantastic.
Great tour! Learned a lot from our guide Nate! Took us along a very scenic hike around caneel bay with breathtaking views!
We had a great time and Patrick, our guide, did a wonderful job. We would recommend this tour to anyone.
This was such a fun trip! Casey was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the island and the local fauna and flora. The hike was fun (breathtaking views!), the kayaking was easy, and while snorkeling we learned about different fish, saw a ray, a live conch, sea turtles...wow it was memorable! My girls are 9 and 10 and it was a trip they won't soon forget. Highly recommended.
