What You Can Expect

Reef and Turtle Discovery Tour

Swim with Turtles

Enjoy convenient pickup at the St Thomas cruise port or your hotel, then transfer to the jumping-off point for your aqua adventure. 

Get fitted for a kayak and safety gear. Listen to a short safety orientation and learn a few paddle strokes from your guide, then launch into the clear, shallow water. Kayaking distance is approximately 1.5 miles (2.4km), which takes about 45 minutes with several rest breaks. Paddle in near-silence on the calm waters, following your guide to a white sandy beach where a lounge chair awaits you and your tired arms. Sip a cool drink and munch on a provided snack, then get ready for your snorkeling adventure. 

Don the provided equipment and wade into the water; your guide will be close by at all times to ensure your safety and comfort. Beginner snorkelers will have a short lesson and enjoy the assistance of the guide. Head for an area where the local sea turtles like to hang out, munching sea grass. At a respectful distance, watch them go about their business. 

Back on land, dig in to a delicious lunch at an outdoor restaurant right on the beach. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are available. 

Take to the water once more to follow your guide to a colorful coral reef inhabited by schools of tropical fish. Float around at your leisure, studying the underwater world, easily visible in the crystal clear water. 

Return to your kayaks and paddle back to the base, assisted by the ocean current and the tropical breeze. 

Your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel or the cruise port.

This was an incredible tour! Perfect for those families who love and respect the ocean. The location was amazing and one of the most beautiful beaches. Our guide, Jo, was super knowledgeable, patient and excellent at getting us to the right place to see the most sea life. We hoped to see a few sea turtles but were super surprised to see and be so close to tons of sea turtles. She captured fantastic photos which were sent to us free of charge following the excursion. Definitely a highlight of our trip.

This tour was offered by a local tour operator and the company let us know all the information before hand like where to meet, what to bring, what's included, etc. On the day of the tour, someone came to pick us up at the port and dropped us off at the beach where the tour started. My husband and I were the only ones with the tour guide Sven that day, it feels like a private tour! Sven was very professional and knowledgeable. We kayaked my husband and I had a kayak and Sven was on his own for a bit and Sven gave us facts and history info along the way.

Next was the honeymoon beach where we enjoyed lunch we both had fish tacos and rested a while. After lunch we kayaked a little bit to the snorkeling location, Sven took pictures of us and of the fishes which was very nice of him. The pics were sent to us to see via facebook afterwards. We saw many types of fish, urchin, coral, a small shark, it was a great snorkeling experience and the equipment was provided.

Then we went back to honeymoon beach and snorkeled in the area to see the sea turtles. We also saw a stingray there too! Afterwards we kayaked back and saw a bit of the sunset over the waters it was a cloudy day.

Overall it was an excellent tour and great day spent at St. Thomas, thank you!

Michelle and Sven were awesome! A few hours before we were to start, Michelle called to let us know that the wind was a little higher than expected. She knew we had two 12 year olds never had kayaked before with us and she immediately began planning back up plans to ensure all would have a great time my wife really appreciated how she made our little ones her priority too! The wind subsided but we really appreciated her thinking of our kids they had a blast! Sven is an expert kayaker and really knows his stuff. Besides the usual fish we saw a shark, sea turtles, sting rays, flounder, even a very large underwater green caterpillar that we all agreed was probably a baby monster. Highly recommend this excursion!
