Choose from a 3- or 5-hour tour (the latter option includes lunch), with guided instruction and equipment included. With breathtaking views and informative commentary, this outdoor adventure is fun for nature enthusiasts and families alike!

What to Expect
When booking, choose between tour lengths, noting that the shorter tour can be booked in the morning or afternoon. Make your way to Honeymoon Beach to meet your guide and group. First, kayak into the Virgin Island National Park's aqua waters, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a unique ecosystem. Then, pull the kayaks up on a white sand beach to begin your hike. Follow your guide through Turtle Point's tropical forests, hearing about the area’s more than 800 plant species. Stop at a rocky outcropping for views of Hawksnest Bay and the Durloe Cays, keeping an eye out for wildlife such as wild donkeys, mongoose, and white-tailed deer. Back in the water, slip into snorkel, mask, and fins to explore the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, where you'll find stingrays, sea turtles, and many species of coral. At the conclusion of your tour, return to Honeymoon Beach.
