Turtle Excursion

This St. Thomas small group excursion will be one to remember! Swim with sea turtles, enjoy a delicious lunch and relax on one of the best beaches in the Virgin Islands!
Turtle on our VI Turtle Tour

Our Turtle Excursion has two options 1) kayaking and snorkeling with sea turtles or 2) a short nature walk and snorkeling with sea turtles. You will also visit a beautiful beach with all of the amenities to make your trip incredible!

Kayakers will paddle over to the bay (for guests aged 13 over on this excursion) and those on the nature walk, will enjoy a short, scenic boat ride to a boat landing -from there they will take a guided nature walk to the beach. Both arrive at the same bay so that groups with mixed preferences can snorkel and lunch together. 

Snorkeling is guided with photos (free) and all who snorkel are GUARANTEED to see multiple sea turtles on every excursion. Because we snorkel in small groups, turtles are a lot less likely to get scared and swim away. Each tour is limited to 12 snokelers (6 per guide). 

Swimming with green sea turtles.   Choose between our walking tour or kayak excursion.  Both options include transportation, lunch and photos! Experience the difference of snorkeling in small groups and avoid crowded tours! See our Turtle Excursion for more information.

After the turtle snorkeling, enjoy a break at the beach on a chaise lounge chair and a break for lunch (included).  Lunch is grilled/prepared to order (menu includes: burgers, salads, sandwiches, tacos and more - we also have Vegetarian and gluten free options!  

Kayakers will paddle back to our base and those who are on the walking tour, will walk back to the boat landing.

Swimming with Turtles

Kayakers:  Kayaking on this excursion is recommend for guests who are active and fit for an adventure, as you will paddle 1.5 miles each way from one bay to another.  While crossing the channel, kayakers will encounter wind and currents.  Breaks are provided (about every 10-15 mins) and we have many first time kayakers on this adventure! 

Participants on the nature walk should be able to walk up and down a hill and on uneven surfaces.
