On this fun-packed tour you will:
Enjoy the best of both of our favorite tour locations: Caneel Bay and Henley Cay. With Scott Beach, frequented by sea turtles and sting rays, Henley Cay is a tropical and tranquil uninhabited cay inside Virgin Islands National Park. On this tour you will start at Honeymoon Beach in the pictureque Caneel Bay and kayak over turquoise waters to the charming and deserted Henley Cay, learning about the unique and fascinating wildlife that calls this area home. Henley's protected beach is fringed on both sides with a fabulous coral reef teeming with colorful schools of fish, perfect for our first snorkel of the tour. A hike exploring the Caneel Peninsula will bring you to Hawksnest Beach and along Mary's point Nature Trail. On the second snorkel around Scott Beach, you will discover an impressive collection of colorful corals including brain, pillar, sheet, star, and the endangered elkhorn and staghorn. From there you will return to Honeymoon Beach in your kayak where you can relax after your tour in a hammock or lounge chair under a coconut tree. A perfect and invigorating day spent in paradise!
