ST. JOHN ECO HIKE AND SNORKEL

Add to Itinerary

For an island that is almost entirely protected as a national park it is no wonder St. John is one of the most beautiful, low key islands in the Caribbean. Perhaps the island's top attractions are hiking and snorkeling and with a limited time to appreciate the natural wonders, why not experience both?

With a local naturalist as your guide this fun filled day will leave you with a lesson on the island's history and it's tropical ecosystem. First up is a scenic coastal hike along the Lind Point Trail. Nearly the entire trail lines the ocean and yields beautiful views of nearby cays as well as neighboring St. Thomas.

We'll make a stop at a scenic overlook that was a former British Military Lookout during the Napoleonic Wars - interesting and panoramic. All along the trail your guide will be sure to point out various ecosystems including plants, animals, and birds that call St. John their home.

Our destination is Honeymoon Beach and after getting outfitted with snorkel gear and a brief introduction, you will have time to snorkel the coral reef off the coast or to simply relax and enjoy the beach. It really doesn't get much better than this!
