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.

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

Our family went on this excursion in May and had the best time. The bartender was friendly and made great drinks! Very affordable, as well! The steel drum band playing was phenomenal and played music recognizable to everyone. Lots of dancing, music and drinking! The boat was also kid friendly with an awesome game of limbo with the boat hosts.... More

We went on the Kon Tiki as a shore excursion and had a blast! The cruise director, DJ, is quite an entertainer (limbo, anyone?). He made the trip fun and even taught us about coral reef. The band was also great (I love steel drums!) and the captain was very friendly. This excursion had a little bit of everything, and... More

When the boat pulled up to the pier, I was surprised to see that it was full of passengers from 2 other cruise ships. That meant that there was no room on the first floor and all passengers going on board had to sit up top. We could not hear the announcements and could not get close enough to see... More

We are sorry to hear that we did not live up to your expectations this time. As a courtesy to all cruise lines, we offer this tour on all the ships. The Kon Tiki is built to hold 300 guests and combined we did not exceed 200 guests during the month of June. An alternative and convenient option for food... More

The vessel is pretty fun and comfortable. Enjoyed the glass ocean viewing panels in the floor. The ride was smooth, and the musicians and cruise director dude (I can't remember his name, but he was SO cute!) were top shelf. Loved Honeymoon Beach. Snorkeled and relaxed. Very picturesque. The ride back to the ship was a riot complete with a... More

We took the Disney Fantasy on a Caribbean cruise and decided our day in St Thomas would be spent at the beach. We did not book in advance through Disney (although I believe this is one of their port excursions), we just walked off the Fantasy, down the dock to the Kon Tiki. It's docked literally next door to the... More

Great excursion!! Had a really good time on this excursion! The energy on the tiki boat was high and exciting, the band was awesome, the MC and his assistant are very very entertaining. Oh, and the captain is handsome too...lol!! Would definitely do it again and would highly recommend to cruisers. This is truly a redo for me!!
