Navigating St. Thomas' waters by night may be challenging by yourself; this tour allows you to kayak safely after dark through Charlotte Amalie Harbor and around Pirate's Point. Additionally, you'll be paddling a clear-bottom kayak, which allows views of the sea life below, illuminated by the craft's built-in lights.
What to Expect
Meet your guide and group of around 18 people at the Marriott Frenchman's Reef Resort just before nightfall. Grab (or get matched up with) a partner and board the clear-bottom kayak for instructions and to try out some strokes before heading out into St. Thomas' inky waters. The kayak is custom-fitted with a string of LED lights around the glass bottom, allowing views of the marine life passing below.

Paddle toward Pirate's Cove to glimpse sea life that’s more active at night and enjoy the serene bay now that all the frenetic daytime activity has died down. Keep an eye out for stingrays, sea turtles, and even flying fish. Fruit bats, swooping through the air in front of you, are also a common sight. Listen to your guide's commentary on the special ecosystem and history of Charlotte Amalie Harbor as you paddle.

Return to Frenchman's Reef to end your excursion.

Something Different

We did the 7pm tour and it is plenty dark enough. Saw a bunch of larger fish but no turtles this time. Guides we helpful and fun. There were kids in our group who were 7-10 and did just fine with an adult.
