Overview
Explore the Virgin Islands National Park in multiple ways—kayaking, snorkeling, and hiking—on a single tour. Choose from two tour lengths, then leave the logistics of the various activities to someone else. During the day, hear commentary from your guide about the flora and fauna of the UNESCO World Heritage–listed park. Included lunch and equipment make for a seamless, hassle-free adventure.
Highlights
  • All equipment provided, so you can pack light for your trip
  • In-depth commentary from your guide on the park’s flora and fauna
  • Snacks, drinks, and lunch (longer tour only) included 
  • Use of lockers to safely store belongings and valuables
What to Expect
When booking, choose between tour lengths, noting that the shorter tour can be booked in the morning or afternoon. Make your way to Honeymoon Beach to meet your guide and group. First, kayak into the Virgin Island National Park's aqua waters, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a unique ecosystem. Then, pull the kayaks up on a white sand beach to begin your hike. Follow your guide through Turtle Point's tropical forests, hearing about the area’s more than 800 plant species. Stop at a rocky outcropping for views of Hawksnest Bay and the Durloe Cays, keeping an eye out for wildlife such as wild donkeys, mongoose, and white-tailed deer. Back in the water, slip into snorkel, mask, and fins to explore the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, where you'll find stingrays, sea turtles, and many species of coral. At the conclusion of your tour, return to Honeymoon Beach.

Our guide was fantastic and led us from Honeymoon Beach across to Henley Cay and Scott Cay. The snorkeling at Henley Cay was a bit disappointing probably because of damage from the last hurricaine to the live coral, which in turn, seem to limit the number of colorful tropical
