A big thanks to Jai for being an awesome tour guide! The day started off with a little rain and a lot of wind, but he was cool, calm, and collected and we were still able to see and do everything we wanted. He knew a lot about St. Thomas and its history, and was great at answering impromptu questions. There were only four of us on the excursion, so that made it even better. The kayaks were wonderful and my boyfriend and I even made sure to get the brand name because we've been looking to buy some and these were perfect. Snorkeling was great, even though we didn't have as much time due to the morning weather issues. We definitely enjoyed learning about Hassel Island and its history, and Jai made it really interesting. Thanks again for a great start to our cruise!!
We were the only couple on the tour, so we had personal service. We were thrilled with the historical knowledge of Brenda, our guide. She instructed us on the proper method of kayaking. We were able to see the historical remains of the railroad on Hassel Island. We hiked to the top of the hill to see the fort. It offered an outstanding view of the entire bay and of St. Thomas. Along the way were enjoyed the interesting floral and fauna. We found interesting insects and corals. Brenda was very helpful in answering our questions. We had a most enjoyable and educational experience.
Our guide Cat was great and took care of us well as we were the only couple on the tour. Kayaking was short but adventurous as the winds were strong that day. The island has a lot of historical interest and the climb to the top is great for views. A small but interesting reef awaited us at a secluded beach...the snorkeling was wonderful.
Loved the combination of activities. Very close to town.
AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING!!! We LOVED our guides. They were kind, helpful, knowledgeable, and FUN! The ruins were beautiful, a must see! The water was clear and our guides free dived to point out spectacular fish and coral. They were so much fun, we wanted to hang out with them all day! They made sure we were safe and well hydrated. I can’t say enough good things about this excursion. Loved it! oh and the hike is easy, don't let that scare you away.
