Coral Reef and Turtle Discovery Tour


Enjoy convenient pickup at the St Thomas cruise port or your hotel (available at an additional charge), then transfer to the beach for your aqua adventure.  Get fitted for a kayak and safety gear. Listen to a short safety orientation and learn a few paddle strokes from your guide, then launch into the crystal clear water. Paddle through the blue waters, following your guide to a shell covered beach for a relaxing break. Sip a cool drink and munch on a provided snack, then get ready for your snorkeling adventure.  Don the provided equipment and wade into the water; your guide will be close by at all times to ensure that you'll have an amazing time seeing corals, sponges and sea fans which make a home for an abundance of tropical fish. Beginner snorkelers will have a short lesson and enjoy the assistance of the guide. Back on land, dig into a delicious picnic lunch. After your break, you will go to a second spot with sea turtles, assisted by the ocean current and the tropical breeze.
