With a naturalist guide in the lead, choose between a nature walk or kayak tour to bring you to a habitat frequented by St. Thomas' sea turtle population. Hear tips on how to snorkel (equipment included) or swim in the calm, shallow water without disturbing the turtles. Post-swim, retreat to a sunny beach for some time to relax, sip drinks, and refuel with lunch. A small group of six people per guide ensures an intimate atmosphere.
What to Expect
Choose how you'd like to travel to the sea turtle habitat via guided walk or sit-on-top kayak. You'll travel with a nature guide who’s experienced in sea turtle behavior and a small group of no more than six people per guide, which guarantees personalized attention and an intimate atmosphere.

On the way, listen to commentary about St. Thomas' unique ecosystem and get a primer on how to swim respectfully in the turtles' habitat. Once you arrive, slip into the provided snorkel and mask, and slide into the water. Your guide will accompany you to ensure your safety and comfort while snorkeling, making this tour suitable even for beginners. Snorkeler's are guaranteed to see multiple sea turtles so be sure to bring your waterproof camera if you'd like to take photos.

Hit the beach to dry off, relax, and enjoy a provided lunch. The menu consists of sandwiches, salad, hamburgers, fish tacos and more  (vegetarian and gluten-free option available). After lunch, the kayaker's will paddle back to the base and those on the nature walk will walk back   to the boat landing. The nature walk is approximately 15 minutes each way. The kayaking distance is approximately 1.5 miles each way. The kayak tour is suited for individuals who are fit and active.
