The Legendary Kon Tiki Sightseeing & Beach Cruise is a winner of...

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 is a tour we would definitely take again. Glass bottom was opened for all to easily see, for awhile, on way to white sand beach. On beach we had a great hotdog at small open beach cafe. Enjoyed the trip back to pier, with good entertainment of music, singing, dancing. Very relaxing and enjoyable!

Arrived in St. Thomas on the Carnival Glory and spent the morning hours going to Paradise Point, which still left us plenty of time to make the Kon Tiki excursion. The Glory was the only ship in port this day, so the Kon Tiki ws anything but crowded - maybe thirty passengers, so there was plenty of room for all... More

This was by far the most lively and interactive shore excursion I've been on. The crew made the whole experience so much fun. The tour around the island was interesting and it was nice to stop at the beach for some water/beach/drink time. The margaritas were strong but tasty. The fun on the boat on the way back was hilarious... More

This was a shore excursion for my husband, 5 year old son and I. The staff is amazing! The steel drum band really put us in vacation mode and the crew kept the party going! Honeymoon Beach was calm, beautiful and quite enjoyable. Our son tried out his mask and snorkel for the first time as the water was so... More

This iconic experience has a live 3 piece steel drum band and a glass bottom. Lunch is served at Heidi's and Honeymoon Beach is secluded and has lots of sea turtles. What"s not to love?

My family was visiting & we decided this would be a fun trip to take over to Water Island. Captain Sean & the whole crew made the ride over very entertaining. We heard history and facts about St. Thomas & Hassle Island on our way over to Honeymoon Beach on Water Island. Music from the 3 piece band was incredible.... More

Great top level to soak up sun. Love the glass bottom view of the reefs. The Beach was nice and the food on the beach was fabulous. The Food at the Left end of the Beach was by far the best!! The Crew and Band on the Boat were great. The dude leading the Conga Line Dance was so so... More

The staff on this excursion were fabulous - energetic, upbeat, talented and helpful. The excursion, is another story. Having enjoyed this venue previously I was shocked to experience it now. It is nothing more than a barge fitted with as many paying seats as they can fit. The center is a huge seating 'table' which winds up having the guests... More
