A Family-Friendly Way to Spend a Day on St. Thomas

While St. Thomas is often thought of as an adult’s playground due to its plethora of duty-free shopping and seemingly endless beach bars to frequent, it is also an island where kids can experience their own kind of age-appropriate paradise.

Whether you’re on the island for a full week, or simply passing through for the day off of a cruise ship, we highly recommend getting up close and personal with St. Thomas’ unique flora and fauna. The magic of our tropical environment is something the whole family will appreciate and remember long after your holiday in the sun is over.

We offer several tours, ranging in length, that will immerse your family in our ecologically diverse mangrove lagoon on St. Thomas. Tours include a combination of hiking, snorkeling, and kayaking, and can be customized to accommodate the ages and abilities of your kiddos. Some of our tours even include lunch!

All of our tours are led by expertly trained guides who are passionate about St. Thomas’ land and sea-scapes. They love answering questions and providing interesting island factoids to our most inquisitive guests.

Here are just a few of the things your family may see on your eco tour:

– Tropical plant species such as sea grapes, passion flowers, papaya trees, and more

– Sea birds such as pelicans, herons, gulls, and more

– Marine life such as sting rays, tarpon, sea turtles, fiddler crabs, and more

– Tidal pools

– A deserted island, Cas Cay

– A geological blowhole

– Volcanic cliffs

We’re big believers that the best island days are spent in and around the water, and the waters of the mangrove lagoon are brimming with life. St. Thomas’ abundant plants and animals never fail to enchant the whole family. We hope to see you in the lagoon soon!
