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!  This small group tour is limited to 12 guests (six per guide) . This tour is unique from the sea turtle tours offered by the cruise ships because: 1) we guarantee you will see multiple turtles 2) you will not be snorkeling in large groups  3) snorkeling is guided - we are in the water with you to teach you about turtles and take underwater photos (included). 

This bay is full of turtles and has calm waters so it is perfect for first time or beginner snorkelers. Lunch is grilled/prepared to order (menu includes: sandwiches, salads, tacos, burgers and more with gluten free and vegetarian options available).

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 short walk.  Participants should be able to walk up and down a hill and on uneven surfaces.  While on the walk, you will learn about local history, native plants and their many uses.
