Red Hook: 4-Hour Boat Tour to Saint John with Snorkeling

1. Red Hook: 4-Hour Boat Tour to Saint John with Snorkeling

Explore Saint John on a cruise from Red Hook. Stop at spots like Trunk Bay, Christmas Cove, or Honeymoon Beach to swim and snorkel, and enjoy included snorkeling gear. Sip on water, soda, and beer while taking in the sights from the water. Meet the crew and board your boat for the day, the MV Sea Wolf, at the American Yacht Harbor in Red Hook. Set sail onto the glistening water as you head to one of the many snorkel spots around Saint John. Visit either Trunk Bay, Maho Bay, Christmas Cove, or one of the nearby uninhabited cays, such as Mingo, Lovongo, or Steven. The crew will provide you with all the necessary snorkeling gear, so all you need to do is focus on having fun. Cool off from the heat and make a splash as you go in search of colorful coral reefs that are home to an array of tropical fish such as snapper, parrot fish, surgeon fish, squirrel fish, and more. You might also have the chance to spot sea turtles. Back aboard the boat, enjoy water, soda, or beer as the boat sails to the next destination of the day. Arrive at either Hawksnest Bay or Honeymoon Beach, some of the most beautiful beaches in the Virgin Islands. Spend some free time strolling along the white sandy shoreline, and soak up the tranquil atmosphere of these magical locations. After your adventure, relax and admire more scenic views from the boat as you cruise back to Red Hook.

Great experience. Captain Bryan was an excellent captain sharing insightful information, serving refreshments and taking us to great snorkeling spots! The weather was great, too, so it made for a great day in the water.

Aaron and Aaron were excellent and the snorkeling and boating was awesome. We saw turtles, stingrays, and a wide variety of beautiful fish. The ride was smooth and the staff was great. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

Captain Bryan and Mate JW made our trip on the Posiden fun, safe, and relaxing. They described the history of the area and told us about the fish and turtles we saw. It was a great day!

Hamblet and Kinney we’re both amazing. Learned a lot about both St Thomas and St John. Highly recommend this excursion. Well worth the cost.
