TOTALLY worth doing this eco tour!! Our guide, Katy was wonderful!!! Such a spirited down-to-earth young woman. We loved her, and the tour was SO fun. Katy taught us a lot about the eco system there, and was able to show us many of the animals and plants.
We saw and raced hermit crabs, we handled sea urchins, upside down jellyfish and even a sea cucumber! So cool.
The kayaking was fun, and the hike along the beach was enjoyable and educational.
She was amazing!!! We loved Katy and highly recommend her! THANK YOU Katy!!
And the only negative was that she was TRYING to break in a new gal, Kim I think and she would have to leave our group to go rescue her! She seemed to have NO experience in kayaking!
It took away from our fun, and time with Katy. But guess it was a request from her boss to try her out. Wrong position for KIM!!
Very friendly staff, absolutely customized tour, adjusted to customers abilities, very interesting information. Facility has changing rooms, bathrooms, all supplies if you forgot them, and they can call taxi for pick up.
Great excursion! If you are in St. Thomas and have the time to spare then do yourself a favor and book this excursion. The staff were so sweet and professional. Experience level does not matter here because they will go over the basics with you and you can kayak a your own pace, so don't feel intimidated if you are a beginner or bringing small children along. The trip is 2.5 hours, but most of the time is spent in the water so the kayak portion is not exhausting. We were able to kayak to several different locations on our trip and were also able to snorkel in different areas. Our guide, Kristen, told us a lot of facts about the area and it's natural wildlife which made the trip even better. Seriously only have good things to say about this place, so give it a try if you get the chance.
It was an incredible time, and the tour guide was awesome! His name is Yosh, and he was very informative and friendly. We were his only customers as we went on the early tour, best time to go!!! so there were no cruise ships in yet. The afternoon tour had a lot of people on it, so I was happy that we chose early in the am. I would do it again and again as there is plenty to see.
Good experience for the whole family. Only suggestion is not to buy tickets in advance by more than a few days. Things happen and then you are out the money.
Yosh was our tour guide. He was great and take his time with us. Doesn't matter if the group was big or small, VI Ecotour honor their service. If you have little kids, no experience on kayak, swimming or snorkeling then this is definitely a good tour for you. I thought it would not work out for us but VI Ecotour proved us wrong. We had so much fun that when we went back to our hotel, we booked more tours. Thanks Yosh!!!
So much fun! This was worth every penny! The guides were so passionate about everything they talked about and you left this trip with so much more knowledge than when you arrived.
It was really amazing to kayak through the mangrove, our guide was knowledgeable and explained every single detail as we kayaked to the snorkeling spot
Very pleased with the whole tour! My sister and I were a little late but they slipped us in anyway.Gear was in great condition. The kayaking wasn't challenging-a beginner would do fine-but it was enjoyable and a decent length of time to the little beach where we stopped for a little hike. There were so many hermit crabs! The kayaking was fantastic! The water wonderfully clear and held many different fish. Both guides were friendly, engaging and knowledgeable. Kendall was especially helpful and offered many good local lunch options for vegetarians. Cuzzins was perfect! I would recommend this tour, and say don't go through your cruise ship excursions-not necessary. This was one of my favorites!
If you take this tour, add the hike portion, You will not regret it.
This was a great experience and well worth the cost. We were even offered and accepted the optional 30 minute nature hike when we called to check-in the previous day. That said, and although it might have been an unusually hectic day, we our group of 6 were shuffled around for over an hour and a half while the busloads of cruise ship passengers were being sorted out and set off with their guides. Since we were staying at a resort on the island I suppose they assumed we could wait - not having to get back to a ship. Even after the cruise ship passengers boarded their kayaks and set out with their guides we were still asked to wait for another group that was supposedly tied up in traffic. In the end it all turned out for the best as the late group never showed up thus affording us a private tour for our group of six. Our guide, John, was very informative and attended to all our needs. He led us out to a great snorkeling spot and identified many of the tropical fish for us. John even extended our kayak trek back to the landing after our snorkel stop. The only advice I would give to others is to book your tour on a day when there are no or few cruise ships in port.
Guide was wonderful. Was awesome!! Can't wait to do it again. Beautiful.

Very professional and informative. Laid back and easy to do. Excellent gear, great for the entire family. Parking is tight so try and car pool.
This was the highlight of our cruise! The staff are so welcoming, helpful, and patient! My husband and I had never Kayaked before and it was fun. Snorkeling was a wonderful experience and very easy. The optional hike was easy and quite informational. We would highly recommend this adventure.
Amazing experience!! We saw an octopus, sting rays, barracudas, and beautiful fish while getting a great nature lesson! Highly recommended!

The whole tour was excellent--the locations gave us a private and natural experience and the locations for kayaking and then snorkeling were picturesque. The guides were awesome especially Jai who was so upbeat, welcoming hello my beautiful people! and so proud of his island and it's beauty. He spent extra time with the kids in the water and on the crab island where an area of the ground and even trees were covered in red-claw hermit crabs, explaining the creatures we were seeing. We really appreciated his hospitality, do this tour!
We had a great time with Brenda!! The tour was fun and we actually enjoyed learning. Brenda was friendly, efficient and VERY knowledgable! Thank you so much for a great Kayaking / Snorkel trip!!
I booked this tour not wanting to go, because I have a fear of the ocean and sea creatures. But everyone in my group wanted to do it so I followed along. And I'm SO SO SO glad I did! The kayake adventure is thru the mangroves and does feel like your in the ocean at all, rather a lake or stream.
Took my 12 and 16 year old daughters. Terrific guide and wonderful experience.
Our tour guide Nathan was great and very informative about the local plants on the hike and the aquatic life. We saw many species of fish some invertebrates too.
The only thing I didn't like is being an experienced snorkeler I did not like being told to leave my fins behind.
Very nice for first time/novice kayak-ers. All the staff was very friendly and helpful. Thx Jodi!
This was a great experience. The staff all took good care of me, which was much appreciated as I am a senior single traveler. I was paired in a kayak by a delightful young lady who was a new member of the guide staff. She ensured that we could keep up with the rest of the group in a quite lengthy passage from the dock to the snorkeling site. The lead guide was very informative at the several sites along the way and the snorkeling was good near the entrance to the lagoon. The experience of being surrounded by thousands of baby fish around the mangrove roots was unique.
This was my favorite part of my trip to St. Thomas! The mangrove lagoon was beautiful to kayak through as we made our way to Cas Cay. We walked/hiked to a blow hole with tide pools and our guides pointed out marine life. Afterwards, we snorkeled and saw tons of different fish and even a sting ray. Overall, this was a really great experience and the guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. Definitely something I would try again on my next visit to the island.
I wanted to do this again every day I was on the island. Laura Lee was knowledgeable, funny, and an all around delightful tour guide. Our entire group of seven had a great time kayaking and snorkeling with the fish and jellies. Don't miss this tour!
