Overview

Following an expert kayak guide, paddle out to Pirate's Point and learn about Charlotte Amalie Harbor's marine residents through informative commentary. Ride in a see-through double kayak, which allows views of the sea life below illuminated by the boat's halo of lights. With a small group of 18 people or less, you'll view flying fish, sea turtles and stingrays.
  • 1.5-hour St Thomas night kayak adventure
  • Kayak from Frenchman's Reef to Pirate’s Point
  • Paddle comfortably in a transparent double kayak
  • Shine a halo of lights on stingrays and sea turtles
  • Receive paddling instruction and narration from an expert guide
  • Choose from two evening departure times
  • Small-group tour limited to 18 ensures a more personalized experience
Make your way to the Marriott Frenchman's Reef Resort to meet your kayaking guide and small group of 18 people or less. 
Try out your clear-bottomed double kayak with your partner and learn some paddling techniques from your guide before taking to the water. Glide into the inky night toward Pirate's Cove. Your see-through kayak is retrofitted with a ring of powerful LED lights that create a 5-foot (1.5-meter) halo for viewing creatures swimming below. Enjoy the peaceful ambiance of being out on the water once all the sun-seeking daytime activity has died down. 
Flying fish, sea turtles and stingrays are all active at night, so keep an eye out for those shadowy forms in the clear water. Look out for fruit bats swooping over the surface of the water as your guide fills you in on the history and ecosystem of Charlotte Amalie Harbor. The shallow reefs here are feeding locations for all of the surrounding sea's nocturnal animals, so you'll see plenty of activity. 
After 1.5 hours, return to the Marriott, where your nighttime adventure ends.

We had such a good time on the night kayak tour. Josh and Shawn were our guides and made it fun. We say a spotted eagle ray, turtles and multitudes of large tarpon. It was a highlight of our trip and I strongly suggest giving it a try.

We really enjoyed the tour. The guides were very helpful. We took our 5 year old and she loved it!

Our tour was on a Thursday night @ 8:30. Stay near the front of the pack with the guide or you will miss out on the guided tour information. We saw a few turtles, rays and tarpons.Wish there were fewer kayaks, less bumping in to each other and a better chance to hear the guide.

Our children really enjoyed the experience of kayaking at night and seeing fish under their boats. We also enjoyed a bit of scenery and the group atmosphere. A tarpin jumping very close to our kayak gave us an additional excitement during our trip! The guides were entertaining although the jokes were a bit predictable. I would say the only reason we did not give a five start review is that near the end of the tour the lights went out on 2 out of 4 of our kayaks. Although the bulbs were replaced fairly quickly by one of the guides, one would hope that there would be some kind of regular replacement plan to prevent that occurring during a trip. One other unexpected element is that the trip was sold out which meant that one in our party of seven had to go with someone we did not know. Other than these small items, we had a great time.

Our teenaged daughters did this on our first night on the island. They enjoyed it immensely! The team that led the group seemed competent and confident. No experience was necessary. They did, however, allow an extremely drunk couple to go on the tour. It made our girls a bit uncomfortable, but somewhat amused. I am just not sure that is such a wise decision. All in all a great tour and we would recommend it!

Great experience! Amazing sea life that swims right up to the bottom of your kayak! Even if you have never kayaked, you will have no problems and be able to enjoy all of the sights! Highly recommend.

Mehhhh... My expectations were high but we hardly saw anything. Tour guides told dumb dad jokes the whole time. Not worth $50

Went with a group of 5 for this experience. We heard we should change our time at 9:30pm to an earlier time so we could see the light show. Wow!! So glad we did. We changed to 8:30pm and seeing the light show was opulence. The only word to describe it. We honestly didn't see much for water life...but the light show made it worth it. Dillan was our tour guide. He was very friendly, helpful, patient and a good sense of humor. Would recommend this to others coming to the USVI for a visit.
