Summary

Choose how you'd like to travel to the sea turtle habitat via guided walk or sit-on-top kayak.

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.
