Description: The Legendary Kon Tiki Sightseeing & Beach Cruise is a winner of the 2013...
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.

This was an excellent excursion that we took from the Freedom of the Seas cruise ship. The presenter was knowledgeable and interesting, we had a great time on Honeymoon Beach, the drinks were great, and we learned some things too.

My hubby and I were on the NCL Getaway last week and booked this tour through the ship. We had a wonderful day. James Dean (yes that is really his name lol) gave an interesting history lesson as we sailed the calm waters to pick up passengers from the Oasis of the Seas. It only took a few minutes to... More

Love the ride and the history lesson along the way to the honeymoon beach. Great crew, good music, surprisingly good hot dogs. How low can you go? Make sure you have your limbo legs ready to challenge the crew. Great choice off the Disney Cruise Line. Thanks everyone G.

We had a wonderful time with the tour and beach cruise. I especially love the beach where they let us out at. Kids had a wonderful time. I was traveling with my 65 years old Mother and it was great for her as well.

We've been to St. Thomas numerous times and we've done island tours, beach tours etc.. So we wanted to do something different that would include my parents in their 70's, 2 young kids and myself and husband. This tour must be purchased through your cruise line, you cannot buy it from them. I figured this would be a good tour... More

Simply put, this is a good time. My wife and I went for time in the boat and some time on the beach. The boat is great. Simple, effective, nice bar, great crew. The beach was nice. Small but ample, a couple of good restaurants preparing food and laid back. The food wasn't the cheapest but it was good. On... More

Just got back from a carnival cruise. The crew of the kon tiki was great. Kids loved the glass bottom boat and dancing on the boat. We snorkeled at the private beach and found a turtle and sea urchins. Thank you very much kon tiki!

We took this as a recommendation from our NCL cruise company since it was listed as family friendly. We boarded the Kon Tiki at the port in St. Thomas. The crew and the steel drum band were great. They took us on a short tour along the coast pointing out the Governor's Mansion and Blackbeard's Castle. Then we went to... More

Our group of 6 went on this excursion in June and had a "BLAST". The steel band was fantastic and had everyone up and dancing. The crew, especially James was very informative and full of energy. The drinks were reasonably priced and weren't skimpy on the booze and the beach "Holiday Beach" was very relaxing. The price was very affordable... More

Great excursion. Excellent crew, lots of fun, well managed. Nice clean and friendly beach. If you are looking for a good time this trip will get the job done. They pick you up at the cruise pier and bring you back there after the excursion. Friendly and energetic crew of the Kon-Tiki will go the extra mile to help you... More
