Explore the Wildlife Sanctuary and Marine Reserve Mangrove Lagoon in St. Thomas on your own and at your own pace with our Self-Guided Kayak Tour. The Mangrove Lagoon is a lush forest that grows in salt water with shallow winding waterways and tunnels. There are many beautiful areas to explore between the Inner Mangrove Lagoon and Bird Island. Guests who want an independent experience can discover on their own the beauty and serenity of the lagoon and narrow waterways between mangrove trees. Encounter wildlife, paddle to secluded cays and islands, and even to a rare geological blow-hole. Whether you are an experience kayaker, a guest who has already enjoyed one of our tours and are familiar with the lagoon, or you just want the flexibility and freedom to explore on your own, now you can.

Really fun day! Nice active tour without being too much. It is great to have the freedom to explore at your own pace with having the comfort of the guides checking in occasionally, providing water as well if necessary.
We had an awesome time kayaking in Mangrove Lagoon & exploring Cas Cay Island! Adia was an awesome host, ensuring my husband and I could enjoy our honeymoon after being rained out twice for the event. You are provided a laminate map and can’t get lost. We saw hundreds of jellyfish, several tarpon, a starfish, several hermit crabs, and many other fish. Highly recommend any VI Ecotours activity!!
Great way to enjoy a Kayak trip!
Eco tours is a great place with so many different tour options. We loosely followed the path of the Cas Cay tour and went at our own pace which made it very chill. When we got back there were delicious drinks at the bar which were a great end to the experience. Everyone at Ecotours was very friendly and super helpful!
Night Kayaking (Devon- tour guide)
Devon was wonderful! My friends and I did night kayaking and he was our tour guide. He did great making everyone feel comfortable and is also very knowledgable about St. Thomas’ history and background. Also told ghost and pirate stories! It was a great experience overall!

Amazing excursion with my teen daughter, we had a grand old time on our own loved getting to the cays , not suitable for young kids. We brought snacks with us picknicked on the cays then headed back to the dock where we were greeted by friendly staff, who were very helpful! Definitely will do again if I have the chance!
