We did not get to go out as they cancelled our time 5 hours in advance and it was our last night. Cancelled due to potential weather but there was no weather until after 11 pm.

Cancelling a tour is something that St Thomas Water Sports does not take lightly. We are very aware that guests will not get to do something that they wanted to do. At the time that we decided to cancel, there was thunder and lightning going on. We also took into consideration that there was considerable runoff in the water caused by the torrential rainfall. The decision to cancel also cost STWS revenue and tour guides their wages & tip money. At STWS it is always guest safety first followed by fun.

Cool experience but didn’t see anything in the water

A star for first time experience kayaking at night. Another star for the guide who tried to engage the group. Didn’t see anything in the water at all. Not recommended for those that get sea sick. Cool way of seeing the illuminated houses on the hillside.

Thank you for your comments. Our guides do a great job at engaging our guests. The Illuminated Kayaks After Dark has many components. The lights of historical Charlotte Amalie Harbor, the experience of being on the water after dark in a illuminated Kayak and the opportunity to see or resident fish and turtles in their natural habitat. Tarpon, turtles and tropical fish are most often reported to be seen. Our underwater residents do move around for their own reasons. Our guides do their best to make certain that guest see as much as possible.

This was pretty cool

This was a cool experience, the crew was very helpful and fun. The kayak was dope to be lit up at night and had a glass bottom to see the fish. It sucked because we didn't see any fish during that hour or turtles.

Thank you for joining in on our Kayaking After Dark excursion. This tour features fish and sea turtles as well as amazing views of the twinkling Charlotte Amalie Harbor skyline. Being on the water at night in a lite kayak is an amazing, unique experience. There are usually multiple tarpon that follow the kayaks and our resident sea turtles are a usual attraction. Our underwater residents are in their natural habitat and roam freely.

Great potential...the guides knew where to find turtles and the kayaking was easy. Unfortunately it was almost impossible to hear the guide from the back of the group.

Thank you for being please that the guides knew where to find turtles and the kayaking was easy. There are two guides on each tour. For guests that are reading this, let your guide know if your can not hear them. Our guides are responsive. Thank you. Jim

We were on a graduation trip for my granddaughter. While researching TripAdvisor for things to do in St Thomas we came across Kayak After Dark. It was beautiful kayaking at night. We didn’t see a lot of fish that night but the turtles were amazing. Our guides were knowledgeable and funny. We had a great time. I would recommend this tour to everyone.

Thank you for touring with St Thomas Water Sports. We are all so fortunate to be at the Marriott's Frenchmans Cove. What a wonderful night time experience for all ages. Our resident fish and turtles are in their natural habitat and move around freely.

This is a great night activity to do while visiting St. Thomas. The staff was lively, knowledgable, and fun. It's a wonderful experience sans the fact that I would have preferred to be solo in my kayak. They insist that you share. They secure your belongings before kayaking, so no worries about getting your phone wet. We were able to catch a glimpse of quite a few turtles and a beautiful spotted stingray along with some fish and interesting underwater plants.

This was a unique experience! We saw several sea turtles. So amazing. I am not big on snorkeling but enjoyed seeing sea life from the safety of the canoe that had a see through bottom and lights. So great

Thank you for your review. Our "Illuminated Glass Bottom Kayaks" offer a unique opportunity to see turtles and southern sting rays and tropical fish in their natural habitat. An amazing experience. Our guides maintain a continuous informative dialogue with kayakers. Kayaking After Dark is an amazing experience.
