Stop At: St. Thomas Adventure Tours, St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands
Visit our two favorite snorkel spots on this small group adventure! It's a perfect opportunity for active individuals to kayak and snorkel over a coral reef and swim with sea turtles while avoiding the crowds. Only 4 guests per guide make this a truly unique experience. Your guide will provide you with your gear and give you a kayak lesson before starting the guided kayak to a secluded cay. While kayaking, learn about the rich history of the US Virgin Islands and the unique ecosystems surrounding you. After beaching your kayak, you can take a break and enjoy the scenery. Your guide will provide a snack and bottled water (included) before the snorkeling orientation starts. Don the provided snorkel gear and dive in to witness the vibrant undersea world; your guide will point out and tell you all about the must-see fish and coral. After snorkeling, you will have time to take a break on the beach. Your guide will provide a cooler packed with sandwiches and bottled water (included). Next, you will paddle to beautiful bay where you will snorkel with sea turtles in their natural habitat. Your guide will lead you to the turtles so you are sure to see them (sting rays are often at this bay too)! While you enjoy the adventure, your guide will take free photos throughout the tour (above and underwater are included). This tour is for those who are fit and active individuals, who are at least 13 years old and are good and confident swimmers. The first snorkel spot is at a cay off the coast, so snorkelers should be comfortable in water with some waves. Flotation devices are provided. The second snorkel spot is at a bay. Total distance to kayak is approximately 3.4 miles with breaks along the way. It is 1.7 miles to the cay (first snorkel spot) and 1.7 miles to the bay for the second snorkel spot. We are close to both cruise ship ports. There are taxi stands at both ship ports and the cost of a taxi to our meeting point is $6 per person or less. Your guide can call a taxi for you at the end of the tour. Hotel guests may request pick up and drop off for an additional charge of $14 per person (round trip) to be paid upon pick up in cash. Departure times are adjustable to meet your cruise ship arrival, based on availability. Please call to see if the alternate time you need is available.
