Explore Coral Reefs With Sea Turtles
Kayak & snorkel in beautiful Caneel Bay on St. John! Explore the best that St. John has to offer above and below the water in the beautiful Virgin Islands National Park, which serves the backdrop for this wonderful trip.
Board your kayaks at Honeymoon Beach and paddle across Caneel Bay to the beautiful and deserted Scott Beach.
Since the hurricane damage to the nearby resort, there has been very little traffic at Scott Beach. The turtle population has increased tremendously and it’s very common to see as many as 2 to 12 different turtles species in the bay, along with stingrays and spotted eagle rays.
As you snorkel in the waters, watch sea turtles surface to breathe and then dive back down in the shallow waters to graze among the seagrass in the crystal clear and protected waters. On several occasions, dolphins have been seen while paddling across the bay.
Starting Your Tour
Honeymoon Beach is located at Caneel Bay, St. John, nestled on the North Shore of the Virgin Islands National Park.
You can reach Honeymoon Beach on the North Shore of St. John by hiking along the popular Lind Point Trail (one mile each way), or you can choose our taxi shuttle option.
The taxi will pick you up in Cruz Bay and drive one mile to Honeymoon Beach where our chauffeured golf cart will meet you at the entrance to Caneel Bay Resort and drive you to Honeymoon Beach.
