St Thomas Mangrove Lagoon Kayak and Snorkel Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Take a kayak and snorkel adventure through St. Thomas’ Mangrove Lagoon, an unspoiled region of mangrove forests, winding channels and first-rate snorkeling territory. You'll pass beautiful islands while snorkeling through crystal-clear waters, home to an abundance of wildlife including sting rays and the endangered brown pelican. St. Thomas' Mangrove Lagoon offers an eco-adventure you're not going to want to miss!
  • Single tour to explore the mangrove lagoon via both kayaking and snorkeling
  • Beginner-friendly tour: all gear and instructions provided 
  • Lockers to store valuables and belongings during the activity
  • Refuel with a snack of candy and water
What to Expect
Meet your guide at the Mangrove Lagoon Wildlife Sanctuary and Marine Preserve, located on St. Thomas' southern coast. Get an orientation and safety briefing, then get fitted for your kayak and snorkel gear before heading out to Patricia Cay and Long Point. The provided kayak allows you to glide easily through the small channels and around tiny islands planted with mangroves. Your guide will point out local wildlife, such as spotted rays and stingrays, as they swim around and under your kayak. Switch modes of exploration and don your snorkel equipment to get a peek below the waterline. Your guide will be with you the entire time to answer questions and provide any directions to those new to snorkeling. Back in the kayak, enjoy being warmed by the sun during the quick paddle back to the marina, where your tour ends.

We did the tour with our four kids- ages 12, 10, 7 and 5. The guides, Hailey and Matt, took care of us and the kids. Fun tour although we didn’t see too much during the snorkeling part. The only negative, which isn’t on the part of the tour guides was the round trip taxi that

Kevin was a great guide! We had an easy kayak ride and did a hike first as another group was snorkeling. He was so knowledgeable about the island, history, folklore, plants, hermit crabs, fish, etc etc. We had a great hike and he was helpful to an older man in our group.
