I highly recommend this tour. Caneel Bay is gorgeous. I had never kayaked before- which was a lot of fun. The hike was not rigorous but educational with our very astute and entertaining tour guide- Austin. Snorkeling with the sea turtles was also awesome- now checked off the bucket list!

My mom and I took this tour. The beach was so pristine and amazing. We saw several sea turtles, stingrays, and colorful fish. Our tour guide, Austin, and his co-worker were awesome. Wonderful experience! I highly recommend this tour!
