We took the kids out of school for this trip so it was only fair that we injected a little learning in to the trip. The funny thing was, it didn't feel like we were learning anything because it was such an enjoyable experience. We started out kayaking to Scott beach and then went for a hike through the forest....

There are lots of tours of this kind available on the Virgin Islands, so it was difficult to choose among them. Our guide, Tyler, is a native of the islands and was quite knowledgeable, and she did an excellent job guiding us through the tour. If you're looking for a taste of each activity (kayaking, hiking, snorkeling), this is the... More

My wife and I did the tour with Austin. The kayaking was a new experience for us. We kayaked from Honeymoon beach to Henley and had a great snorkel seeing a nurse shark, two squids, and lots of colorful fish, then we kayaked over to Scott Beach where we got to hike on Mary's trail and Austin was very informative...

Went on two guided tours of St. John in the Virgin Islands that included kayaking, snorkeling and hiking. Saw some amazing wildlife and both the guides, Mark and Patrick, were very knowledgeable and gave a fantastic tour. Saw and learned a lot of things about the island I never would have just on my own.

A few friends and I went on the kayak, hike and snorkel tour with our awesome tour guide Michael and loved it. We saw amazing sights, swam with sea turtles and rays, and learned quite a bit about the island's history and natural beauty. I would highly recommend, thanks to Michael for a great experience!
