VI Turtle Tour

Don't miss this unique experience to swim with sea turtles and visit beautiful beach on this four hour guided tour. This tour includes snorkeling with sea turtles, photos, a beach break and lunch!
Kayaking in the VI

Come swim with sea turtles on this half-day adventure!  Choose to kayak or a short boat ride and a nature walk with our professional guides who will lead you to the natural habitat of sea turtles. Some may kayak and others can go on the nature walk from one group - you will all arrive on at the same bay for snorkeling and lunch! 

Guaranteed up close encounter with turtles!  Let us take you to our secret turtle spot where your guide will lead you to the turtles in small groups (we do not snorkel at the busy "Turtle Cove" where hundreds may be in the bay at one time).  We provide small group tours (private tours are available for large groups) and have one guide per 6 guests for snorkeling. You may have more than 6 in your group. This tour is unique from the sea turtle tours offered by the cruise ships: 1) we guarantee you will see multiple turtles 2) you will not be snorkeling in large groups (its impossible to see turtles who are timid creatures in loud groups) 3) we are in the water with you to teach you about turtles and take underwater photos (included). 

This calm and serene bay is full of turtles and is perfect for first time or beginner snorkelers. Lunch at a beach-side restaurant is included (menu includes: sandwiches, salads, tacos, burgers and more).

Turtle on our VI Turtle Tour

No experience is necessary, our well-trained guides will provide instruction, guidance and join you in the water to ensure that you have an incredible adventure! 

Please choose which option you would like (Nature Walk or Kayak): 

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.

Kayaking is from one bay to another, crossing the open sea with some wind and current.  It is an adventurous paddle of 1.5 miles each way.  We kayak in tandem boats, but you can have an odd number in your group (usually one will paddle with the guide). 

The nature walk version of this tour is a 15 minute walk each way.  While on the walk, you will learn about local history, native plants and their many uses.
