With a naturalist guide in the lead, choose between a nature walk or kayak tour to bring you to a habitat frequented by St. Thomas' sea turtle population. Hear tips on how to snorkel (equipment included) or swim in the calm, shallow water without disturbing the turtles. Post-swim, retreat to a sunny beach for some time to relax, sip drinks, and refuel with lunch. A small group of 6 or fewer ensures an intimate atmosphere.
  • Tour suitable for all levels of snorkelers, with included instruction
  • Choose to access the secluded bay via guided walk or kayak
  • Lunch on the beach provided; vegetarian option available
  • Insightful commentary from your guide about animals and ecosystem
What to Expect
Choose how you'd like to travel to the sea turtle habitat via guided walk or sit-on-top kayak. Travel with a nature guide who’s experienced in sea turtle behavior and a small group of no more than six people per guide, which guarantees personalized attention and an intimate atmosphere. On the way, listen to commentary about St. Thomas' unique ecosystem and get a primer on how to swim respectfully in the turtles' habitat. Once you arrive, slip into the provided snorkel and mask, and slide into the water. Your guide will accompany you to ensure your safety and comfort while snorkeling, making this tour suitable even for beginners. Snorkelers are guaranteed to see multiple sea turtles so be sure to bring your waterproof camera if you'd like to take photos. Hit the beach to dry off, relax, and enjoy a provided lunch before heading back the original way that you arrived, by nature walk or kayak.
