    The tropical foliage is amazing. The staff are informative. This is great way to experience the outdoors at your own pace.

    My daughter and I had the most amazing experience swimming with the sea lions. The head trainer, Gabby was super friendly and knowledgeable about sea lions. We learned so much about the sea lions. The love and care the staff has for the animals is a really beautiful thing. The sea lions are sweet and the opportunity to spend time with them was incredible. Thanks for the wonderful experience.

    It’s an incredible experience but would definitely recommend: stretching, plenty of water, good walking shoes. You drive to Botany Bay and park on side of the road. You have to walk through the gate as no vehicles are allowed on property. It’s a long walk!! The way down is not as bad as way back up!! The views are worth the walk. Me and my wife are celebrating our 9th anniversary and she had this on her bucket list so here we are walking 7000 miles up hill on the way back. It’s very difficult especially for folks not use to hiking. The views are beautiful so it’s worth it. Also, it’s very private as we were the only a ones at mermaids chair. I only have 4 instead of 5 because of the hike, but the views are 10 out of 5. The security guard at the gate was nice and friendly.

    We were doing a snorkel tour with Ocean Surfari and while we were waiting around we decided to feed the large tarpon. They sell little containers full of fish for $3 and you go around to the back on the dock and the tarpon are there just waiting for their tasty treat. My teens had fun doing this and it was a good way to kill some time.

    This is a great site to dive lots of big boulders to swim around. We saw a beautiful nurse shark swimming out through a cave and circle this a couple of times. Which was very cool. So a couple stingrays on the bottom, lobsters and many tropical fish. We spoke to a few local drivers and they said this is their favorite site on St Thomas. We will be back to dive again!
