We had an awesome afternoon with Jalil. He really know the history of the island and showed us very interesting things. The snorkeling was fun as well. I would do this again if we returned to St. Thomas!
This was a great tour. Our guide was a biologist and was well informed about the history of the island as well as the plants and marine life. I would do this tour again without hesitation. The snorkeling was great also.
Had such a great time even though the wind was brisk and waves were high. We still made it over to look around Hassel Island. VERY COOL!
Great trip!! Although not far from the cruise ship port, it seemed like we were miles away!. Hiking and learning the history of Hassel Island was wonderful and the snorkeling was fabulous -- perhaps the best on the island. Definitely try this tour on your next trip to St Thomas!
Our trip was amazing. CJ was incredible and the tour was so much more than we anticipated. Do not miss this excursion if you are in St Thomas. Simply the best! ask for CJ
I can't recommend this tour highly enough! My boyfriend and I were the only two on the tour which was so nice. We got along really well with our tour guide whose name I don't know how to spell but I'm going to go with Shayna... and it was so much fun hearing about the island! The kayaking was great, the hiking and learning the history of the island was awesome, and the snorkeling was amazing! I'm really nervous about deep/open water, but Shayna was so great about going slowly and checking on us every so often. I loved being able to snorkel, and she was a huge part of it being not a nerve-wracking experience! Seriously, take this tour.
Tour was a great getaway from our hotel. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and easy to chat with about the island!
The Hassel Island Kayak, Hike, and Snorkel Tour was among the best things we did in St. Thomas. Our guide was excellent, the tour was informative, and the snorkeling was incredible. This will be one of the things you tell people about St. Thomas.
We started our tour by kayak and took a short trip to Hassel Island. After securing the kayaks, we hiked along some trails and our guide, Heather, pointed out native plants, artifacts, and historical sites. She provided us great details of the sites we visited and described what a day on Hassel Island would have been like. We also took in some nice vantage points at various locations on the island.
Next, we got back in the kayaks and traveled to a secluded beach for snorkeling. Again, Heather did a nice job leading us to interesting underwater places and pointed out coral, an octopus, many colorful fish, and anemones. The water was warm and we never felt rushed to get back. The snorkeling was the best we experienced on St. Thomas.
After a quick snack, we kayaked back to the pier as the sun started to set. I would do this tour again, but I would prepare a little differently. Wear shoes with a sole not flip-flips for the hike because there are spiny needles that fall from the trees and get buried in the sand. The needles will puncture your skin. Also, parts of the hike are rock and steep, so shoes would be beneficial. I was afraid of tipping the kayak and losing my camera, so I left it at the pier. Next time, I would put my camera in a plastic bag and take it to the island. The kayaks are two-seaters and we had no problems navigating. We never came close to tipping, so I wished I would have taken my camera.
All in all, it was a very memorable experience and I highly recommend it!
This tour was incredible. Request Jai as a guide if you can. We had such a personal experience on this trip, from the kayak to everything we learned on historical Hassel (hazel) island and while snorkeling. On our seven day cruise this last week, this was probably our best experience. Thank you!
What a great combination of tasks to enjoy. Kayaking, hiking and snorkel. Our guide Sean was great. He had an impressive knowledge of the history of Hassel Island and St. Thomas in general. Even more impressive was his knowledge of The local plants, animals and sea-life. Beginging to end...WELL DONE.
