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.

Wonderful time!! Loved the hermit crab racing, snorkling, and tide pools!

We loved this excursion and felt the guides were knowlegable and professional! Since we were kayaking to the island, we didn't bring anything we didn't want to get wet (i.e. phones, towels, etc.). They stored all our items in a locker (no charge) and brought...More
