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.

This is something you have to do. Words cant describe how amazing a beautiful it is. Don't even try to take picture and just enjoy the views. They let you ride on your own in the bay and explore for yourself. Hands down my favorite part of the vacation!

I can't even explain how cool this was. I definitely recommend using Sea Thru Kayak company. Actually being able to see through the bottom of the boat was worth the slight increase in price.

My husband and two teenagers loved our experience with Sea Thru Kayaks! To start, Craig, the owner was very honest about what to expect on the Bio Tour. He explained his focus on safety and the ways they keep track of all the group of kayaks in the dark. He was very accurate! The trip over to the Bio Bay... More

Excellent tour of a bioluminiscence bay in St Croix. Seathru give you time to cayak on your own around the bay. Experience depends on the weather -- we were lucky to see bioluminiscence jelly fish.

If you are in St. Croix, you must visit the bioluminescent bay. And if you're going to visit the bay, the see-through kayak is an absolutely must. It was one thing to see the luminescence around your paddle, but it was another thing entirely to see the organisms lighting up underneath the kayak. It was beautiful and you miss out... More

We went on the bioluminescent bay tour with Sea Thru Kayaks for our anniversary. The tour was magical. After some upper body workout from paddling, we were rewarded by millions of stars above us and the waters of Salt River Bay igniting beneath us! Watching the dinoflagellates light up like thousands of water-bound lightning bugs was absolutely breath-taking. The guides... More

We took the kayak tour on our recent visit to St. Croix and had a really great experience. I wasn't sure if the glass-bottom kayaks would really make a difference but they did- you can actually see the bioluminescent sparkles on the sides and underneath the boat which was really cool. The tour operators seemed very knowledgeable and safety conscious... More

We are divers and we have seen bioluminescence in the water. That was better. But this was fun in a dry way. We could do it with the nondiver friends and family. We had time to see the stars and the moon. And the egrets roosting in the tree at the mouth of the bay were fun too.
