There is no better way to watch the beautiful sunset on St. Thomas, than exploring the bird sanctuary by kayak on the water.

Grab your camera and get out your binoculars because you are invited to join us on a guided kayak adventure through the lush and shallow waters of the Mangrove Lagoon.

A Wildlife and Marine Reserve in St. Thomas, the lagoon is a protected ecosystem playing host to a number of indigenous birds and other wild and marine life. On this tour, you will observe and learn about the incredible diversity of species that inhabit the Virgin Islands, and even learn to identify birds and marine animals yourself. Learn about migrating patterns and the habits and behavior of birds such as blue herons, night herons, egrets, yellow warblers, hummingbirds, or even spot the endangered brown pelican. Expert nature guides will take you on a peaceful paddle at sunset through the dynamic Benner Bay estuary and St. Thomas' East End Reserve.

This tour is for those who love to watch, identify, or learn about birds, as well as those with a curiosity for what makes the Mangrove Lagoon such a unique and vital ecosystem. No experience is necessary. Come to learn and keep your eyes peeled!
