Owner description: The Legendary Kon Tiki Sightseeing & Beach Cruise is a winner of the 2013 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence! Cruise gently through the beautiful, calm harbor of Charlotte Amalie while sipping complimentary fruit punch and listening to great calypso music, played by a native steel band. Keep cool on the open, shaded lower deck or sunbathe on the upper deck as you pass Bluebeard's Castle, Blackbeard's Castle, and the Governor's Mansion nestled in the mountainside that surrounds the capital. Passing behind Hassel and Water Islands in flat calm waters, the Kon Tiki pauses over a coral reef where she lowers her glass-bottomed viewers so you can view a variety of coral and tropical fish. The Kon Tiki then beaches herself at a wonderful white sand beach with sparkling turquoise clear waters for at least one hour for you to enjoy swimming, sunbathing and beach combing for shells. Enjoy a fun time on the way back with plenty of barefoot dancing, games, and a limbo contest with a prize for all the winners. A boutique and snack bar are available onboard.

We did this excursion in November 2014 and it was a blast. I would recommend it to others. The crew and steel drum band were awesome and had everyone clapping and enjoying their day. The limbo was my favorite. The only thing I wasn't impressed with was Honeymoon Beach. It could use a little TLC. Other than that I would... More

We took this tour just this week and it was excellent. It's a fun tour with lots of audience participation. Our guide was knowledgable and very funny. Their version of the Macarena is a must see (and do!!). These guys work really hard and are so friendly and welcoming. Honeymoon beach is idyllic - a perfect picture postcard beach. We... More

My parents and I went on this excursion in February 2014 and had a BLAST! My dad can be gruff and hard to sell and by the end of the trip he was dancing with the guys and having a grand time. We learned interesting things about the island, saw cool fish and coral reefs, and swam at the beach.... More

This excursion was one of the most fun we have experienced in 8 Carnival Cruises. Capt. Mike Jones, Andrew, C'Quan, & JD kept the fun going during the entire time. Elizabeth was an awesome bartender, great drinks and good personality. Then the musicians, William, Carl,Kidan and Patrick were super. They not only played they interacted with us as well. We...

Went on this excursion in September 2014. It was a great experience and a nice beach break. The mc - JD was his name, was excellent in engaging the crowd. The boat itself could get a little crowded as they pick up people from both ports (Havensight first, Crown Bay after that) in St. Thomas, and especially when they open... More

We were on this excursion from the NCL getaway. Had a lot of fun. The emcee did a great job. Went to a beautiful beach with calm clear blue water. Had a lot of fun on this one. There weren't too many chairs on the beach, but they had a huge platform you could sit on in the shade. Just... More

We took this excursion in April 2013. We were off the ship and onto the boat in no time. The music is complete fun. The beach is gorgeous. We tried the drink that was recommended from the little bar there, it was good, but will stick to the rum punch served on the boat next time. No chairs at the... More

We loved the kon tiki boat! The staff were fun, the music great, and the beach was nice too! We were fortunate to be the only boat at the beach that day.....but I can see from other reviews that some days there are many other boats there and that crowds the beach. We were there on a Wednesday. Also, our... More

We booked this excursion through our RC cruise on Oasis of the Sea. It was perfect for our whole family. Our children are not ready to snorkel so this allowed us to see a coral reef and fish through the glass bottom of the boat. The took us to Honeymoon Beach. What a beautiful beach. Quiet, calm and warm water.... More
