Reef2Peak believes in giving back to the community of St. John. We have volunteered our time and effort by participating in the following:

We have been kayaking and learning about the unique coastal ecology and aquatic life, instilling the value of preservation in the next generation.

The project is funded by the National Park’s foundation and the Friends of the Virgin Islands National Park.
