Sea Thru Kayaks VI
About
BIOLUMINESCENT BAY TOURS in the only clear kayaks on St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands and only one of two operators using clear kayaks in the world. Visit our bay at Salt River National Park which is currently being studied by the National Park Service and Dr. Michael Latz of Scripps Institute California. Experience the bay that the scientific community was unaware existed until a year ago and now is being called possibly the best of the six or seven year round bioluminescent bays in the world. Our see through boats are the best way to view this definitely better than swimming through it.

My husband and I took this excursion from a Royal Caribbean cruise ship. The excursion was "Kayak Adventure at Historical Christopher Columbus Landing" It We had a good explanation on how to paddle on the kayak. Our guide Ann was very knowledgeable regarding the history, wildlife and ecology of the area. Would highly recommend this excursion.

My husband I scheduled the nighttime Bioluminescence Kayak tour with a transparent kayak. It was incredibly cool! Jake was an awesome tour guide and Keith did a great job in training. The water was a bit rough but safe and the guys took great care of us. Once inside the bay we were surrounded by bioluminescent plankton. We’ve never experienced anything like it before! Jake is so knowledgeable and shared so much interesting information. Pay attention to the details. You play a game at the end and can win a fun prize! Schedule this - you won’t be disappointed!

So this was an experience me and my girlfriend will never forget. We were staying on St. Thomas and wanted to do the Bio Kayaking but it conflicted with the ferry schedule so we were having problems working out the logistics. Craig the owner also has GORGEOUS rental cabins on the mountain over looking the bay. He let us rent one for a VERY reasonable price for the night so we could do the kayaking tour. He arranged for us to be picked up at the ferry when we got on the island too! He also took us to the cabin and to catch the 8am ferry the next morning. The tour was absolutely mind blowing, an absolute must see. The guides were great as well. This was really an absolute above and beyond experience from the owners. I highly recommend this company. Very hospitable and just good people 🙌🙌🙌🙌💚💚💚💚

We did the night time see thru bioluminescence tour. Just WOW!! It was such a unique experience. I HIGHLY recommend it. All the staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. This is a MUST do especially since there are not very many places you you can experience this.

The whole experience was fantastic! We had decided we wanted to go to the beach as well as the tour. Once the tour started the guide was so interesting and engaged that we skipped the beach. None of us had kayak experience and we were given a lesson. Our ages ranged from 10 years old to 75 years old. If you love history, water, birds, sea life this is definitely a must. There was a full moon so we couldn't do the bioluminescence tour but next year we will plan for no full moon. I can't say enough about this experience. If you enjoy life, you'll enjoy this to the fullest. We're still talking about it 2 weeks later.

What a star studded night we had and the stars were also under the super comfortable see thru kayak! The other day I on my few days visit to St Croix, a friend recommended a bioluminescence kayak night trip with See Thru Kayaks. At the beginning we were thoroughly briefed on safety, health and history even before we paddled away. On the way to the protected bay we saw lots of wildlife on shore and glow worms racing up from the depths while surrounded by the warmest waters I've been in. The bioluminescence in the bay was spectacular! go see for yourself!

Craig and Nate were fabulous guides: informative, knowledgeable & fun! We saw 4 different kinds of bioluminescent organisms along the way. It was magical!!! The water was calm and the paddling was easy. I hear that is not always the case, so we felt lucky! We had one see-through kayak and one sit-on kayak. Those in the sit-on kayak said they thought it seemed more comfortable. The t-shirts were a good price compared to others on the island. Don’t wear big spray or you can’t go. They do provide big spray that is safe to use. Everything was so fun to see. We will take our cousins and fam next time for sure.
