Why small groups are better
You can get much closer to wildlife on our small group tours! Turtles, fish & other wildlife hide or retreat when 10 or more people are hovering around. We provide one guide for every 6 guests. Snorkeling is guided – this means your guide can point out and tell you about the amazing creatures you see and take your underwater photos! Our excursions can be customized to your ability and interests. We have shorter check-in times and better instructions- so you get more time in the water.

Sven was our tour guide throughout the 5-hour snorkel and kayak excursion. To say that he is the best tour guide a person can ask for is not an exaggeration. He was very knowledgeable of the wildlife in the island, taking any opportunity to teach us about the plants and animals we encountered. He also made the effort to take great underwater pictures of us with the turtles, sting rays, jelly fish and sea eggs that we came across. He is an expert swimmer with a passion for wildlife, free diving, and photography, all of which add to his accolades as a tour guide. Respectful and professional and would absolutely recommend to anyone visiting St. Thomas.
Snorkeling with Sea Turtles
Michelle was amazing! She was incredibly knowledgeable and got us right up next to the sea turtles. She took so many photos that were all really great quality. We very much enjoyed our time with her. It was a very special day.
We did a private tour and it was incredible. Got a bunch of cool videos and pictures along with the experience and great lunch. The tour guide also showed us many different species in the ocean and was very knowledgeable on everything we saw. It was an experience of a lifetime. Highly recommend for anyone coming to St. Thomas
Turtles and Coral Guaranteed!
I was pleasantly surprised by how amazing the snorkeling was in St. Thomas. . Our guide Patrick was very knowledgeable about the island and walked us through the flora and fauna, always asking what we were interested in to help tailor the tour. We were with just one other couple which made for a fantastic small group experience.
The turtles were friendly and the fish out in the ocean reef were beautiful. We even saw an octopus, sting ray and reef squid. Highly recommend if you want a little more adventurous of a kayak and snorkel tour as the ocean life keeps it interesting.
The Turtle Tour was great!
We saw turtles, a sting ray, squid, coral reefs and some other tropical fish. Sven was a great tour guide. He gave a lot of information about the turtles and their environment. Highly recommend this tour if you are visiting St. Thomas. We arrived on a cruise and it was a short taxi ride to the resort where you will meet with your tour guide. I had an underwater camera that did capture a lot of pictures but, we also purchased the photo package St. Thomas Adventure Tours offered. They captured a lot of great pictures and video of us as well. Can’t wait to go back! 🙂
We had an amazing experience with Sven! He was able to bring us to two beaches and we saw so many sea turtles! He was personable and knowledgeable of the area and even took us on a nature walk around the area to get a better sense of the trees and environment. He brought us to many places along the island and was helpful in so many ways. The lunch was great and he was patient and kind when giving instructions for snorkeling. He even took pictures of the wildlife for us using his GoPro! Overall, we would book again with Sven any time he was incredible!!!
Toured with Connor and he was amazing! He was very knowledgeable about the sea life and we got to see the sea creatures up close including a sting ray, squid, and of course the sea turtles! Connor took great photos as well!
Tuttle snorkel excursion
Did the 2 hour turtle snorkeling tour and had Conner as our tour guide and he was absolutely fantastic! He had so much knowledge about the ocean life and was so much fun to be with. My sisters and I said we’ll definitely come back and to ask for conner to be our tour guide because we just had such a fantastic time. I love that they work with smaller groups, we felt like we got to experience so much more that way!
You need this trip
My husband and I went with tour guide Connor and we were impressed!!! He was on time, brought sandwiches from a local shop (the bread is incredible) and provided us with tons of water. On to the trip, we rode up to the first spot and saw tons of sea turtles and other incredible wildlife. Connor was a wealth of knowledge. He even grabbed a giant conch for us to see and hold! 10/10 recommend that you request
Connor as you guide. He even pulled over and picked tamarind for us to try! We’ve done several excursions since we got here and definitely had the highlight of our time in st Thomas during this one!!!
The BEST vacation experience EVER
Our tour guide, Conner, was extremely helpful, friendly, and experienced in our snorkeling adventure. He took us to a secluded beach that was streaming with marine life. Conner taught us about the fish we were seeing, the coral reef, and various see life we were swimming with. We saw a lot of sea turtles (more than I expected). Our photo package was so worth the money and we will keep these visual memories forever.
