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 bioluminescence tour was a cool thing. The owner and staff were very professional and assured the safety of our group. There were several other kayak tours and Sea Thru was noticeably the best.

This activity was fun, relaxing, and educational. The bay was calm the evening we went and the skies were clear. The staff is professional and friendly. I am thrilled that we chose Sea Thru Kayaks - the view through the kayak left me speechless. I highly recommend this tour.

Where to begin!? Wow! I never knew this existed until the hotel told us it's a must do. The hotel recommended Sea Thru Kayaks and we weren't disappointed. We were a bit apprehensive about kayaking in the dark but we had two guides who made us feel safe and secure. We followed one guide and the other guide was in... More

A bioluminescence tour with Sea Thru Kayaks is absolutely the coolest thing you can do on St. Croix! The bio bay is absolutely beautiful and seeing it through the see through kayaks with this company made the experience that much better. These kayaks were so clear that I almost forgot I was in a boat! The owner Craig was very... More

Me, my wife and our two sons (15 and 17) went on this trip and it was wonderful. We have seen bioluminescence in other places, but this bay is superb. My wife and I really like the guides, very professional and were great at keeping an eye on the group. The equipment (paddles, life vests, and boats) were new and... More

Took my girlfriend out for a getaway and we were both completely blown away by how amazing this is. I loved the guides because they were chill and nice. The boats were super cool and it looked like everyone was floating on the water. We could see so many things glowing in the water. A guide showed us a glowing... More

Wow! As an avid traveler who as seen many sights, this trip was one I will never forget! The boats were completely see-through! We started off in the marina and paddled over to the bay.

Please take caution if you use this company. I was with a wedding party in early September and was (at first) excited to take this excursion. Before we arrived, we were given very strict instructions not to drink. No one in this group had any alcohol before we took this trip, I want to make that very clear. When we... More

My husband and friends took the Sea Thru Kayak experience when we visited St. Croix in September. I do not recommend this company if you are looking to experience a bioluminescent tour. The staff (owner Craig) we're extremely unfriendly and unprofessional. The weather conditions were unsafe and so were the kayaks. My husband and I decided to cut our kayak... More
