St. Thomas Mangrove Lagoon and Cas Cay Ecotours
A fun and unique multi-eco experience awaits you with a kayaking, hiking, and snorkeling tour in St Thomas' unique Mangrove Lagoon Wildlife Sanctuary & Marine Reserve.
Kayak among the many small islands of the protected Mangrove Lagoon. Learn why the Mangrove ecosystem plays a crucial role in protecting healthy offshore coral reefs and local bird and reef fish populations. At Cas Cay, enjoy a hermit crab race and a hike to tidal pools, volcanic cliffs, and a visit to the rare geologic blow hole for a scenic photo opportunity. Hike the pristine, deserted 15-acre island of Cas Cay, which is part of the Virgin Islands Park System. Enjoy the many breathtaking views from the coral and shell laden beaches, and snorkel a coral-fringed mangrove nursery with an easy beach entry in the clear, protected waters.
This award-winning ecotour features experienced nature guides and fun for the entire family. No ecotour or adventure experience is necessary. Our sit-on-top kayaks accommodate two people and are easy to paddle. Our guides also offer snorkeling instruction, point out the marine life, and interpret the diverse mangrove ecosystem.
