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!

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.

We had a great adventure with our guide Lewis! His knowledge of the area and willingness to give the group a full experience was very impressive. We were even able to see a few sea turtles and quite a few stingrays as well as numerous fish.
