Kayak and Snorkeling day trips on St. John’s North Shore
Half Day: 3 hours
Full Day: 6 hours
We offer half day and full day sea kayaking and snorkeling tours of St. John’s shoreline and its neighboring cays. No previous kayaking experience is necessary, as our professional guides will teach you everything you need to know. Come paddling with us to experience the beauty of the Caribbean both above and beneath the sea. Snorkel, birdwatch, and explore the Virgin Islands National Park while aboard these human powered vessels. We use top-quality Wilderness Systems touring kayaks. Singles and doubles are available.
Half Day Kayak and Snorkel
Our half day trips are perfect for the beginner, and include complete instruction on the beach before setting out. We leave from Cruz Bay, paddle along the north shore of St. John and make our first stop at beautiful Honeymoon Beach where we go for a quick swim. Next, we paddle out to Henley Cay, a small uninhabited island which is part of the National Park. Here, we stop for some excellent snorkeling before paddling back to Cruz Bay. The half day trips run from 9am-12pm and 2-5pm daily.
Full Day North Shore Kayak and Snorkel
Our full day trips are a great way to explore the most remote parts of St. John and the surrounding cays. If you really want to “get away from it all,” and see some pristine snorkeling spots, our full day kayak and snorkel tour is for you. Although our route can change from day to day, based on weather and sea conditions, our normal route is as follows: We leave from Cruz Bay, paddling along St. John’s north shore to our first stop at Scott Beach. After a break for swimming, we get back in the kayaks and paddle out to Henley Cay, where we are treated to superb snorkeling. After you snorkel, we’ll have a delicious picnic lunch ready for you! Next, we get back in the kayaks and paddle north to Lovango Cay, where there is a beautiful remote beach on it’s northern shore. We’ll stop here for a break and more snorkeling before our paddle back to Cruz Bay. These trips run from 10am-4pm daily. We also have several other paddling routes to choose from. Please inquire for details.
A delicious picnic lunch is provided with a spectacular view at Henley Cay.
We also offer a unique full day guided kayak and snorkel tour of the Coral Reef National Monument in Hurricane Hole, on the east end of St. John. For more information about this trip, click here.
