BIOLUMINESCENT BAY TOURS in the only clear kayaks on St. Croix, U.S. Virgin...

BIOLUMINESCENT BAY TOURS in the only clear kayaks on St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands and only one of two operators using clear kayaks in the world.

Visit our bay at Salt River National Park which is currently being studied by the National Park Service and Dr. Michael Latz of Scripps Institute California. Experience the bay that the scientific community was unaware existed until a year ago and now is being called possibly the best of the six or seven year round bioluminescent bays in the world. Our see through boats are the best way to view this definitely better than swimming through it.

We had an awesome time! We really appreciated the emphasis on safety. Our Guides, Michelle and Michelle, were excellent. They give you a brief introduction and then you are free to explore the bay on your own. The clear bottom boat is key to seeing most of the light show. Highly recommend checking it out!

Great kayak trip to see the bioluminecence. The fact that you could see it right under your feet was so cool. Highly recommend this excursion in St. Croix. Great crew also who were very knowledgeable and fun!!

Was a truly great experience, great staff. Four instead of five points because I think that the price of 60$ is pretty high

We witnessed some most beautiful skies I have seen in many years. We kayaked under the best conditions...there was a new moon...and God knows this cove has something special to offer. At first I thought I was going to see sea creatures actually lighting up, but don't be discouraged because if you relax, and gaze into the fancy of the... More

Very impressed with the equipment and staff. Michelle and Michelle were great guides. They guided 8 kayaks through the water to the bay. I thought it was useful to have the see through kayaks when we got to the bay. It was not as illuminating as I hoped, I heard it depends on timing and location (new moon, puerto rico... More

Bioluminescence of sea-water seen while kayaking is a wonderful and exciting experience. The guide makes you feel comfortable with your kayak and widely explains the bioluminescence phenomenon. A must-do-trip when you are in St.Croix.

Four of us (two older adults, two younger adults) had a great time on a clear, star-lit night with see-thru kayaks. The owner was at the Salt River Marina to greet us well ahead of schedule, and talked with us about the local ecology, local environmental issues, and local culture and politics. The equipment was well-maintained and a good safety... More

I was expecting a little bit more out of this kayak tour. The bioluminescence tour was beautiful and the stars in the sky were breathtaking. The water was great and it was a wonderful experience. The tour guides seemed a little crabby though because some people drifted away from the group and there were some mean comments made loud enough... More

Only one with the see through kayaks and it really makes the experience light years above the other tours. The owner and guide were excellent communicators and provided a lot of history about the area and information about the bioluminescent organisms.
