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 with or without kayaking.  Both include lunch, snorkeling with sea turtles and a beach break (beach chairs are provided and there is plenty of shade).  

Kayakers will paddle over to the bay and those not kayaking, will have more time for snorkeling and a longer beach break.  Both will arrive at the same bay for snorkeling/beach break, so that groups with mixed preferences can choose which option they like.  

If you choose not to kayak, you may choose to join a short and easy guided nature walk to see a sugar mill ruin and learn about local plants or spend more time relaxing at the beach. 

Snorkeling is guided with photos (included) 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 snorkelers (6 per guide) - if yo,u have a group larger than 6, it's no problem!

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 beach break at beautiful beach away from the cruise ship crowds!   Your guide will provide beach chairs, a cooler with your sandwiches, a snack and your beverages (included). Sandwiches are made to order - we also have Vegetarian and gluten free options (let us know when you book the tour)!  

Swimming with Turtles

Kayakers:  Kayaking on this excursion is recommend for guests who are active and fit for an adventure, as you will paddle 1.7 miles from one bay to another.  Part of the kayak is in the open sea where kayakers will encounter wind and currents.  Breaks are provided (about every 10-15 mins) and we have many first time kayakers on this adventure! 

All participants should be able to walk up and down a hill and on uneven surfaces.
