ShoreTrips says...

Arthur wanted to hook us on his island and his tour and he did it in a fascinating way. Instead of taking us to the launch site right away, he led us up a mountainous road where we stopped and looked down over a beautiful bay. That inviting bay is where you will kayak and your paddling will take you on a guided tour of the shoreline.

Away from the hustle and bustle of the port of St. John, you will glide quietly along the picture-perfect shoreline of St. John island. Birdwatching and snorkeling will be incorporated into your kayak adventure.

This half day trip is perfect for the beginner, as it includes instruction on the beach before setting out. We leave from Cruz Bay, paddle along the north shore of St. John and make our first stop at Honeymoon Beach where we go for a quick swim. Next, we paddle out to Henley Cay, a small uninhabited island which is part of the National Park. Here, we stop for some excellent snorkeling before paddling back to Cruz Bay.
The only thing we can promise you after this venture is you will wish you could stay forever! Talk to Arthur - who knows - if you proved to be a good kayaker, maybe you can get a new job!

This daytrip is a great way to explore the most remote parts of St. John, the Virgin Islands National park, and the surrounding islands. No previous experience is necessary, as your guide will teach you the fundamentals before setting out.
