UPDATE: We are issuing an update in response to the recent article published in the St. Thomas Source.

There are NO Reef Bay Hikes scheduled at this point and at this moment we are unable to take reservations.    We are working with the National Park to return normal service soon.  "How Soon?"  At this point we can not say.  Please  check this website and our Facebook Page for future updates.  Thank you for being a Friend of Our Virgin Islands National Park. 


Due to the severe impacts of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, the Reef Bay and L'Esperance Hikes are currently suspended.  At this point it has not been determined when the National Park Service will resume this service.

Please check back them.  We regret any inconvenience this may cause you.
