Most tours start at Honeymoon Beach, near Caneel Bay. One begins with kayaking up the north shore and then putting in at Turtle Point for a one-hour hike. That’s followed by snorkeling.
Another, longer, tour focuses on snorkeling off Henley Cay, a 20-minute paddle from Honeymoon.
“You will paddle over colorful coral reefs and hike through the pristine Virgin Islands National Park,” the company’s Web site promises. “You may see a variety of birds such as brown pelicans, blue herons, night herons, egrets, yellow warblers and hummingbirds. While snorkeling you may see spotted eagle rays, turtles, pufferfish, octopus, lobster, stingrays, and parrot fish."
Tours are conducted by professional nature guides, familiar with wildlife and tropical ecosystems, ranging in price from $54 to $147.
