Original Gecko's Tour
Our ATV tour lasts approximately 1 1/2 hours and covers 13 miles of tropical terrain. It begins by riding along the west end coast line before heading up into the hills. We make a stop at an overlook that gives you a fantastic view of the north shore. As we continue, we make our way to the top of Mt. Stewart where you see panoramic views of the surrounding ocean. We visit plantation ruins from the early 1800's where you get time to explore and take photographs. From there we descend through the Sub-Tropical Rainforest before ending the tour at a local beach with an on site Restaurant and Bar.

Get ready for the next level! If you are an advanced driver and are ready for more miles, more seat time, less talk and spectacular views -this is the tour for you. The advanced tour takes you through some of your favorite trails and a few you have not seen. During this two hour tour you will travel a total of 22 miles through rough terrain. Due to the terrain, speed and drive time, you must be an advanced driver. There will be two stops; one at our beloved sugar mill and one at a picturesque beach. Passengers 8 years old and up are welcome. This is also a difficult tour for passengers so please, no first timers. Note: If you are unable to keep up with the group, you will be brought back to the office with no refund.
Add to your land adventure with some water time! Please note that you are responsible for transportation to and from all other locations. Our tours start and stop at the Gecko’s office.

Meet The Owners, Shawn & Cynthia George
In the spring of 2016, we (Shawn and Cynthia George) had had enough. We were tired of the corporate sales life and needed a BIG change. While on a cruise to the Caribbean I (Cynthia) informed Shawn that I’d found the perfect spot! St. Croix, USVI. My exact words were, “I’m going to live in the rainforest with a view of the Sea”. Shawn agreed but thought it would be best to visit before we made the move.
One year later we were vacationing in St. Croix and walked into Gecko’s Island Adventures for a scheduled tour. We chatted with the owner about wanting to move down and she said the best five words we have ever heard: ”You wanna buy my business?” Shocked we said we may be interested and set an appointment to look over things with her on the following day. It was settled. We were making the jump. We went home to Tennessee and after selling everything we owned, two category five hurricanes and some tears, it was done. One year and a month after our first trip to St. Croix we landed on our new island home. Now we spend our days playing in the mud and our nights sitting on the porch… in the rainforest… looking at the sea.
