Know More about this tour

The southern coast of St. Thomas is home to the attractive and protected Mangrove Lagoon Wildlife Sanctuary and Marine Preserve. An area of exceptional natural beauty, it embraces islands, rocky cliffs, sea grass beds, salt ponds and panoramic ridge lines. These areas preserve a rich habitat for coral reef fish and invertebrates and are home to nesting egrets, pelicans, blue herons and terns.

Led by your nature guide, youll travel through the protected Inner Mangrove Lagoon Marine Reserve to Long Point at Patricia Cay. Here, you'll kayak among the many small islands of the mangrove lagoon.

As you paddle through the clear blue water, keep an eye out for sting rays and spotted rays, as they often glide right beneath you. Occasionally they'll jump in the air and put on a show!

Next, it's time to don a mask and snorkel to explore the coral-fringed mangroves of the sanctuary. Don't worry if this is your first time snorkeling. The professional guides offer snorkeling instruction, point out the marine life and discuss the diverse mangrove ecosystem. Following the snorkel, you'll enjoy a leisurely 20-minute paddle back to the marina.

If you select the hiking option, you'll hike the pristine deserted island of Cas Cay. An important part of the Virgin Islands Park System, Cas Cay is a 15-acre wildlife preserve for white-cheeked pintail ducks, red-billed and white-tailed tropic birds, brown pelicans, oyster catchers, roseate terns, egrets, herons and sandpipers. Enjoy many breathtaking views of tidal pools and the island's unique blowhole from coral and shell beaches at the base of volcanic cliffs.
