What fun to kayak then hike, see views, learn about nature, tarantula fish, then the best part swim with turtles, rays, great reef. Patrick is a great guide and full of knowledge! We were a mixed group from 10 to 60 years old. All had great fun and could keep up!

We met our guide, Patrick, and then began a short kayak trip to a near by beach. After taking a short break, we began our hike. We learned SO much and... More

We booked a morning hike/kayak/snorkel tour and were ably guided by Patrick and Tyler. Departing from honeymoon beach at Caneel Bay resort, the day starts with a short walk to the beach from the parking lot ($20 to park but free once Eco Tour validates your ticket-so think about staying after your tour to enjoy the beach). We even got... More

My family went on the 5 hour tour, and it was absolutely amazing! We saw sea turtles and were able to go to another remote snorkel spot we definitely wouldn't have found on our own. Highly recommend for anyone interested in an enjoyable day on beautiful St. John. Our guide Patrick was fantastic!

We had a wonderful experience led by the informative and helpful Will! Our trip included some kayaking followed by a short hike of the picturesque grounds around Caneel Bay. Will pointed out interesting natural and historical features. Finally, we snorkeled in Caneel Bay, seeing turtles and the colorful denizens of the gorgeous coral reef. I highly recommend this tour.

Patrick our guide was fantastic. We went with two families with kids raging from 5 to 17. A nice easy day of Kayaking, hiking and snorkeling. Patrick was filled with so much knowledge and explained so many great things about the Island. A great 3 hours and then spend the day at Honeymoon Beach.
