Have you ever walked on water? With the award winning Hobie Mirage pedal kayaks, it's like going for a walk, on top of the sea. Strong Caribbean tradewinds won't slow down beginner kayakers, senior citizens or even children! The Hobie kayak's innovative, state of the art design, allows for everyone to easily cruise the waters of St Croix. The Hobie Mirage kayak won Scientific American's product of the year in 1998, and has been gaining momentum ever since. Hobie Mirage kayaks are foot pedaled, giving you a hands free experience,  and the ability to cut through the wind and currents with ease, making your tour relaxing and effortless. A hand operated rudder control, and  recumbent high back seats make this the ultimate ride. 

 

Whether you take a half day tour of Salt River Bay National Historical Park and Ecological Preserve, an evening Bioluminescent Bay tour, or a Nighttime/Monnlight tour, we think you'll love it! We are a small, family owned and operated kayak outfitter, showing visitors and locals the beauty of St Croix since 1998. Over the years, we have worked closely with the National Park Service, The Department of Parks and Natural Resources, St Croix Environmental Association, The Kalinago Tribe, The St Croix Archeological Society, and local historians to give you the best tour we can give.

(We supply life jackets. We have lockers for your personal items.)

Bioluminescent Bay Tour

St Croix Bioluminescent Bay kayak tours are relaxing, peaceful and low key. St Croix kayaking takes you to one of only ten super glow biobays left in the world.  Found in tropical mangrove estuaries, biobays are disappearing from over-development and light pollution. St Croix kayak tours make it easy to cross the bay for everyone, even in the strongest winds, because of our innovative Hobie Mirage kayaks. St Croix kayaking meets at our shop just prior to sunset. Once it gets dark, we kayak across the to Biobay, where you'll witness the magical underwater lights, like gold dust or lightening bugs. These tiny single celled organisms, called Dino-flagellates, sparkle in the water when agitated. Check the list below for the best Biobay Tour Dates.

Nighttime Moonlight Tour

It's time to relax and enjoy the nature of St. Croix at night. Calm and serene is what you'll feel out on this kayak tour. When the moonlight gets too bright for bioluminescent kayaking, we still enjoy the peaceful wonder of nature. On our Nighttime/Moonlight kayak tour, we'll catch cattle egrets, pelicans, and herons coming home for the night. We'll kayak out to the reef to see the sunset and maybe spot a green turtle coming up for air. Once the stars begin to shine, you'll learn about the night sky and the constellations. We kayak over to the st Croix bioluminescent bay, and if we are lucky, we may catch a glimpse of these tiny, magical creatures. Truly a peaceful evening.
