Overview
Explore the calm waters around St Thomas by kayak at night! You’ll venture to Pirate’s Point with an expert guide who provides narration about Charlotte Amalie Harbor and the marine life swimming below.  Glide over shallow reefs on your state-of-the-art, see-through double kayak, whose halo of lights illuminate stingrays, sea turtles, and flying fish... IF you're lucky... You may even spot a mermaid!
*Night Kayak recently received a Trip Advisor Award of Excellence!  We are the first Night Kayak tour with LED lights in the WORLD and are continuously perfecting and enhancing our tour.  We pride our selves on the motto "Safety first... customer satisfaction a close second."  We always want to make sure you're safe but having the time of your life!  Many folks say this is the highlight of their vacation... We hope it is for you, too!  Ready.  Set.  GLOW!
Highlights
  • Local guide provides instruction and supervision while on the kayaks
  • Learn about the history, wildlife, and ecosystem of St. Thomas
  • All equipment included so even beginners can feel safe
  • Nighttime tour leaves the day free for other activities
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.

Got to see several under water creatures. The glass on the bottom of the boats need to be cleaned. Had to look over the side. It was a beautiful night and a great way to see the waters of St. Thomas.

This tour is priced well and fun. The guides are entertaining and informative. Saw several sea turtles, 2 even came up for air right next to us. Rays and fish also encountered. No kayaking experience needed. Well worth it.

The five of us went night kayaking with Ben, our guide. What an evening, not to be missed in my opinion. Ben was great, took his time touring us around, found the turtles, tons of rays, tarpon, and jacks. Also gave us great history of St Thomas, and a handful of yuck yuck
