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.

very rewarding experience!

I had an amazing time out on the gorgeous Caribbean water! The guides were hilarious and very knowledgable and I got to see not only a bunch of sting rays but two sea turtles as well! It's a once in a lifetime kind of trip!!

Great guides, flawed concept

Matt and Brad were our hosts for night kayaking and they were great. Very chill, informative, fun and offered a lot of cool facts about marine life on the island. The tour itself is interesting in concept, but difficult to execute. The lights on the...More
