Great full day East End snorkel/kayak tour We did a full day kayak tour of the east end, and loved it! First we kayaked around for a bit, then snorkeled at a gorgeous reef with tons of fish. We saw turtles, all sorts of fish, and I even saw a bunch of little squid floating by (which I’ve never seen before). Then we kayaked to a different area where we had lunch on a little beach and took pictures. The afternoon was filled with exploring the different little coves of the East End looking for birds (my husband is a bird photographer). Liz is an amazing host and caters each trip to exactly what you want to do. We learned a lot about the history of St John, the history of the reefs, and the relief efforts after the hurricanes. Liz is also great at pointing out different fish and telling us about them while we were snorkeling! Would 100% recommend doing a tour with them.

Amazing Experience If you’re going to do one thing on your trip to the USVI, make it an outing with Liz and the Virgin Islands Expedition Company. We did a kayak/snorkel trip to the mangroves in St John and were blown away. Liz was knowledgeable, fun, and passionate about marine life and the history of the islands. We took our first trip on a Thursday and were back for seconds on the following Sunday afternoon. She even taught us a few things to look for that enhanced our snorkeling experiences the rest of the trip. Her store has some awesome gear as well. I recommend buying some rash guard shirts if I didn’t clear her out. Cannot recommend Liz and the VI expedition company enough!

Absolutely beautiful and breathtaking Liz was our guide and she was absolutely phenomenal. I’m not a very good swimmer and she made me feel safe and at ease the whole time. We went to the mangroves with her and she was SO knowledgeable about all the sea life. I thought she was a marine biologist. She was not only able to tell us the names of all the fish but she would find cool coral and vertebrates and point them out to us. I highly recommend Liz and this trip.

Liz is Absolutely Amazing! I stopped by Liz's VI Expedition shop as I was walking by. I've always wanted to try SUP. Had a chat with Liz in her shop about a lesson the next morning. She was super accommodating and we met up at 8 am the next morning. I was extremely nervous but Liz made me feel incredibly comfortable. Not only did she walk me through technique and tricks, she took me on the paddle of a lifetime. We SUP'ed for nearly 2 hours and along the way we stopped at a dive buoy, tied off and did a little snorkeling. At all times she was amazing, friendly, real, smart, accommodating and it was the BEST experience. Thanks Liz! You totally ROCK!

AMAZING adventure! We had an amazing time on our trip! I was so nervous to snorkel and Mike made it less frightening. We did the full day excursion and it was so worth it! He has so much knowledge about sea life and history of the island. It was just breathtaking and we will never forget it! If you are planning a trip to St. John or travel over from St. Thomas like we did, stop in and see Mike or any of the staff! They are helpful and can make your experience on the island amazing!

Absolute perfection! There is no reason to consider anyone other than Virgin Islands Expedition Company for your adventure! Mike is an incredible guide. Very knowledgeable about St. John and undersea life. My only regret is that I didn't book more than one trip with him. I can assure you that my wife and I are counting the days until we can return to the Island and experience more exploring with Mike. The kayaks are amazing and this is a great activity for ALL skill levels. It is such an effortless trip and completely relaxing. You will also see parts of the island you would otherwise not be able to reach. DO NOT MISS OUT ON BOOKING AN ADVENTURE!!

Hurricane Hole half day kayak and snorkel. I had been looking forward to kayaking and snorkeling the mangroves here for quite some time. Talked to a few different places here in St. John and settled on booking with Virgin Islands Expedition Company because they seemed to be the most helpful with answering questions on the spot. Needless to say the trip itself was awesome. Liz was an outstanding guide and knew quite a bit about the area. She did an excellent job of ensuring every ones time was well spent on experiencing everything around the area. Will definitely book with them again on future trips to St. John. I will post pictures in the next couple of days when I get home. Thank you again for the wonderful experience.
