About
This Night Kayak Tour is the best way to experience St Thomas’ rich pirate history. Paddle through the winding waterways of the Mangrove Lagoon at night and hear spooky pirate and ghost stories. Enjoy the starlit sky and the dark mangroves as you look for stingrays, tarpon, and other marine life in the dark waters below your kayak.

What to expect
  • Meet your kayaking guide and adventurous tour group in the evening in the Marina at the Mangrove Lagoon. After a short safety briefing and orientation to the area, hop on your 2-person, sit-on-top kayaks and launch into the lagoon. Lifejackets are provided for your safety. As the sun begins to sink toward the Caribbean horizon, paddle at a leisurely pace through the mangrove lagoon, a complex system of waterways defined by the hardy trees' roots. Listen to your guide's stories about the times when pirates inhabited these waters and some details from the sunny, tropical island's dark past. Allow your guide to paint a vivid picture of prickly characters such as Teach, Blackbeard, and Bluebeard.  Under the inky sky filled with stars and a shining moon, look for nocturnal marine life. Watch as stingrays leap out of the water and use the lights on your kayak to look for tarpon and schools of lagoon-dwelling fish. Pass the deserted Cas Cay and hear about the local legends regarding 'spirit hitchhikers'.  Your tour ends back at your departure point.

A fun and unusual excursion!
Oct 2021 • Couples
Our tour guide, Denzel, was very chill and had some entertaining stories. It was really cool to explore in the dark, although we were a little disappointed to not see more marine life. We did see and get to touch jellyfish and a big starfish. We were beginner kayakers and this is not a relaxing cruise through the mangrove. You end up kayaking for miles! Definitely an enjoyable experience though!

We had a very great time! Emmanuel was awedome and Adiya made us feel right at HOME! She was very high spirited and assured us that for our first time doing a night kayak it would be memorable! She was right! I will be there again with a bigger group to enjoy theexperience again!

Completely Unorganized
Aug 2021
Complete unorganized!! After getting in the kayaks we waited in the water for 10 minutes before the guide showed up. The guide had no enthusiasm, he was supposed to be telling us ghost and pirate stories but they fell flat because he had no emotion. Also, after 15 minutes the guide saw lightening the far distance and we had to turn around and go in and the tour was cancelled. Complete waste of time and money!!

Aug 2021 • Family
The guides were great! Customer service was better than anything we have done here! It was A lot of rowing and my 11 year old son was pretty bored, they give you head lamp but you can’t really look into the water, if you turn left or right you’ll tip the kayak and the bottom wasn’t see through, so there wasn’t much for him to do. The guides did a great job of teaching stuff along the way and great story telling at a stop half way! So I think their service is excellent and we had fun but if you have small kids that will want to do something other than row for an hour and a half be cautious.

Great guides!
Jun 2021 • Couples
One of the best excursions we did while in St. Thomas! We had four guides and all of them were super helpful keeping us on track and making sure we had fun! Only downfall was that we were invited to eat dinner at the dock before our tour and when we got there the kitchen was closed which made for some really hungry kayakers!

We are sorry to disappoint regarding the closed dinner. We often ask the guests if they want to eat. If the guests don’t order their food in advance sometimes we send the cook home after a long day. So, a reminder to all, if you want to order food or drinks please let us know before you’re trip and consider placing your order too. Thank you!

Very fun kayak tour with lots of interesting fun facts and a very patient tour guide!
Jun 2021 • Family
We’re a family of four (who have MINIMAL kayaking experience) and signed up for a private night kayak tour. Our tour guide, Trenton, was phenomenal and very patient with us. He offered lots of interesting facts and was very knowledge about the mangroves /wildlife. We would definitely recommend this tour and ask for Trenton!
