My husband and I went on a kayak trip to Hassel Island with EcoTours. It was an overcast day which made the trip much better than if it had been sunny and too hot. It was a small group of 6 so we had a very personal experience with the guide. He was wonderful and knew alot about the history... More

There's not many exciting things to do on St Thomas, but this ecotour is definitely something you don't want to miss if you are visiting the island. I took the Hassel Island Kayaking and Snorkeling tour. The guide was very nice and experienced, and he knew a lot about both the Hassel Island and St Thomas. He took us to... More

Did the Kayak, Hike, and Snorkel adventure with another couple and Lee as our guide. Our friends were experienced kayakers and we were newbs. At the beginning of the event, I asked Lee "How easy is it to tip these things over." His response, "Practically impossible. I've never had a customer do it!" :) A challenge.

Brenda, Lee, and Michael were fun, insightful, and great. Lots of history and engagement. Brenda even pulled one kayak behind hers so they would not be left out. That is commitment to the customer.

When we did the Hassel Island Kayak/hike tour it was a bit windy so the waves were up. Paddling against the wind and current was hard work even though we are both pretty fit. As we were the only couple to sign up for the trip it was like having a private tour. Our guide (Jason) was friendly and informative... More
