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 went on an excursion from the Royal Princess. What a great time we all had. The boat is fun. They open up the bottom so you can see some coral, reef, and some fish. Then they take you to a beach area for 60-90 minutes. After that, the party starts on the way back to the ships. The steel... More

Unlimited fruit punch, fun entertainment, beautiful sailing, friendly crew...all ways to describe the Kon Tiki. We had a wonderful time while sailing to a nice secluded beach area where we were able to use the chairs and umbrellas for free. Swimming and a few water sports were available as well. There were also a couple of little food vendors/cafes to... More

My husband broke his leg right before our cruise and there are not many wheelchair friendly excursions. We picked the Kon Tiki boat because we knew that he could use his crutches to get on and off the boat and still experience a little of the island. The crew was great. They helped us load his electric scooter onboard the... More

This was an excursion from the Norwegian Getaway. We (family of 5 with grown children) started by boarding a pretty large boat that isn't going to be earning any beauty awards. Call it "rustic." But any misgivings I had vanished as soon as the steel drum band started to play and our host for the morning/afternoon got into his routine.... More

Kon Tiki is a great, cheap way to see an island of St Thomas, get out on the water, and have a live steel drum band while you cruise. The Kon Tiki picks up at 2 cruise ports in St Thomas. The cruise only lasts about 4 hours, so if you're on a cruise boat, don't plan this as your... More

This is not one of those glamourous type of tours. No pressure either. The boat is tacky and the entertainment is hoakie, but fun! The crew gets into the dancing and interacting with the guests. The bar is open. The boat pulls right up to the beach and you walk off the boat onto the sand. Other boats stop further... More

Make this tour if you are in St Thomas. Our host and his staff were very informed about the history surrounding this island. The calypso band are fantastic aa opposes to aone of the other beach tour boats that were blasting their top 40 radio play hits. The glass bottom tour was educational and again, the host showed enthusiasm and... More
