Owner description: 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.

We just did the bio tour a few nights ago and it was awesome. The conditions were just perfect giving us a nice easy paddle across the bay. We saw three different type of glowing bioluminescence. First we saw glowing tube worms that we were told only appear for a few minutes at dusk and only round the full moon. Second we saw the glowing plankton, it’s everywhere in the bay and the clear kayaks let you see it sparkle up underneath you. Bryce swam under our kayak to show us a “glow angle”. Last the guides caught glowing jelly fish that are in the bay so we could see them light up!

These guys are the best. Friendly, professional, lots of local knowledge, and committed to a high-quality experience. The bio bay is great, but it's just one part of a well-rounded experience that includes lessons in history, current events, and the creatures and characters of St. Croix. Take advantage, and ask Bryce questions. Chances are very good that he'll know the answers. Most of all, though, have fun, and enjoy the close and personal experience of the natural beauty of the island.

I took the tour of Salt River recently with a bunch of girlfriends and we all had an incredible time. It was actually my third time going on this tour and it never ceases to amaze! The clear kayaks are the ONLY WAY to see the bioluminescence. It's like you are traveling at warp speed in the boats as you glide through it! The water sparkles everywhere like fireworks. It's truly one of natures phenomenons.
Bryce is a fantastic tour guide. Knowledgable and engaging.
There are very few places in the world that you can experience bioluminescence, but this is the honestly the best way and only way to see it.

I went on the night tour with my family and we all agree if was the coolest thing we did on St. Croix. Bryce, our tour guide was awesome! He was very funny and knew a lot about the island, even gave us a mini tour of some of the sunken boat in the area! I loved how you could see through the kayaks and watch the glowing water... a truly unique experience to Sea-Thru Kayak Adventures.

Our night kayak tour through Salt River was great! It was a beautiful evening as we went across the bay. Our tour guide Bryce was funny and extremely knowledgable about Salt River and St. Croix! Once we got to the bio bay the water started to light up like shooting stars beneath us. There were glowing jellyfish in the water too that were easy to spot! The clear kayaks we went in were what made this so cool, you wouldn't want to be in anything else!! This is a MUST if you plan to visit St. Croix!
