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 cruise was awesome! Booked through Disney cruise. The boat and crew were waiting for us as soon as we got off the ship. They were all very friendly, and it was clear that they love their job! They gave history of the island, pointed out landmarks, and told stories about some famous people from St. Thomas. Once at the... More

We booked our tour through Oasis of the Seas. When we arrived at Port we were directed to the pick up point. We waited 30- 45 minutes. A bit longer than expected, but no big deal. We purposely tried to get in line as soon as possible to make sure we had plenty of seating for our large party. Well,... More

Thank you for taking the time to review The Legendary Kon Tiki. It looks like we did not live up to your expectations. The Kon Tiki is licensed to take 300 passengers as per the US Coast Guard. On this day, there were a total of 246 people leaving a remaining 54 open seats so it was not “overcrowded”. The... More

I recently took part in this excursion through a cruise ship. The Kon Tiki is a lot of fun. The whole team on board(including the steel drum band) were filled with energy and even if anyone on board didn't care to join in the fun, they definitely had a big smile on their face. The Kon Tiki is also a... More

Booked this through Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas. We have been to St Thomas Several Times and weren't interested in Shopping. Since, our Ship docked at Crown Bay we were not thrilled with getting picked up here and then sailing back towards Charlotte Amalie and turning around and then sailing to Honeymoon Beach. But, to be fair to 1st... More

We took this tour, and really didn't have very high expectations. We LOVED it!! After a wonderful boat ride around the bay with learning about the history of St. Thomas, they opened up the bottom and they had a glass bottom boat that you could view the reef and the wonderful fish. We then went to a private beach and... More

We had done this excursion last year and had a nice time, but there was one other ship in port. This time the boat was jam packed (standing room only) and they brought back 1 hour and half later than scheduled (5:15PM instead of 3:45PM as scheduled) so we missed our dinner reservation, and no one offered any apologies. We... More

We booked this excursion through our cruiseline. The excursion started right at the same dock that the ship was at, a bit of a walk to the end of the pier but not that bad. Boarded the barge/boat with plenty of seating room either up on top in the sun or below with ample shaded seats and great views. Off... More
