“Go Green in St. John”
“Paddle the red mangroves in the protected harbor of Hurricane Hole with a knowledgeable guide from Hidden Reef Eco-Tours (from $65 for a three-hour trip; reservations essential).

“A vibrant aquatic community bustles below.

Russ points out various evocatively named corals, from bulbous, labyrinthine brain coral to elkhorn coral and tall, columnar pillar coral, where she spies a spiny lobster hiding inside a stalk. Fan worms prove just as shy, ducking into their holes as we approach”…
