Overview

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.

The experience was awesome! Seen the bioluminescent and the jellyfishes (there are tiny, harmless and they glow) was definitely worth to see! The sea through kayak was the best option so you can appreciate the bioluminescent in the bottom. Also you have to consider this...More

What more can be said our hosts were wonderful from the moment we arrived til our departure. Safety was their #1 priority as this is a night kayaking tour and it is very dark. The experience itself was breathtakingly beautiful like kayaking over the stars!...More

This trip is a must-do when you are on island! We chose this vendor because their kayaks are completely clear (not just on part of the bottom of the hull) and that was definitely a great choice. You can see the Bioluminescence all around you...More

Life jackets are furnished. I don't think you need experience kayaking, the guides are good teachers.
