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 is a party boat advertised as having a glass bottom where you would see coral, fish and a sunken shipwreck, stop at a beautiful beach for a swim for about an hour, have a drink and listen to a steel pan band and enjoy a limbo contest etc. on the way home. The "glass bottom" consisted of plates that... More

My husband and I went on this little cruise. It was the perfect length of trip for our cruise excursion -we stayed at Honeymoon Beach for about 1-1/2 hours. It had a band, a bar, bathrooms and an upper deck. We also enjoyed the glass bottom to see ocean life.

Our excursion was over booked. They picked up passengers from three cruise ships before they picked us up. There was no place to sit except on the top deck. When they opened up the boxes for the glass bottom boat experience, one of the boxes broke away from the ship and floated off. There was major confusion on who had... More

Simply a fun and unforgettable experience. A must for anyone visiting St Thomas. And if you´re able enough, expect a surprise at the end of the dance when coming back to port!

We were excited about going to the Legendary Kon Tiki excursion over our latest trip to St. Thomas at the end of September 2016. We were going to be doing this excursion as a family to celebrate our son's birthday. However we were disappointed to find out literally the day we boarded that Kon Tiki was in dry dock and... More

This was such a great pick for an excursion in St. Thomas. The tour leader was especially informative and friendly :) Had a great time dancing on the boat & hanging out in the beautiful warm water on the beach. When I come back to St. Thomas I'm finding my way back to Kon Tiki !!

The best excursion in a long time! We boarded the boat at the dock. The boat has two glass bottom areas to see the fish below. (We didn't see much). The steel band was excellent! There was a bar in the back of the boat to get some drinks, if you like. The beach they took us to was just... More

We had been trying to decide what to do this time in St Thomas and finally decided on the Kon Tiki for something different. We were so glad we did. We have a terrific time. Not only did we enjoy just the ride but we absolutely LOVED the information about the island from the crew. We will definately do is... More

This is one of the best excursions that I have taken in the Caribbean. From the moment you leave the dock until the moment you return it is full of fun and relaxation. The beach was okay, but the water was amazing! The rum punch was great and the atmosphere that the crew creates is super fun. I would do... More

The view from the boat is excellent. This party boat was a little more reserved than other boats I've been on. The beach that we was taken to was great. It wasn't too crowded and they had vendors there if you needed anything. I would recommend this excursion for families but if you want something more lively then this may... More
