Smooth, simple fun!!

This is a great experience. Large tarpon cruise under the glowing kayaks on smooth waters under beaming starlight. Guides were great. We loved the corney jokes and 80s music. The glow paint is a must, it makes for great pics. Very fun!!

Glow in the dark night kayaking adventure

We loved the night kayak tour with fun guides Matt and Alex! They made it fun with interesting facts about the island and marine life. Our family loved the tranquility of being on the water at night seeing the island from the water was beautiful. We saw lots of fish and the large tarpon that made it exciting. A must-do.

Once in a lifetime adventure

The tarpon jumping out of the water to eat another fish was awesome. Also, being able to see the fish under the kayak was very cool. The tour guides, Melanie and Spencer were the BEST....very chill and knowledgeable.

Disappointing Tour
Meredith_S
, Dec 2021
The tour was very brief and seemed kind of rushed. The face paint part was very rushed and random. I was also disappointed that the guides took my picture but the picture quality was terrible. You only get to kayak a little distance.

We're sorry to hear you had a disappointing experience. As you will read on several 5 start reviews, most folks love the tour but we know its not for everyone. The tour is only 1 hour. "Short but sweet." Most folks also love the complimentary glow paint but this is not for everyone. Sorry to hear the complimentary I-Phone photo the guide took didn't turn out sharp (low lighting it can be difficult). We will speak with our crew to re-focus on taking 2 photos; one with a flash and one without. We hope you enjoy the rest of your vacation and stay in beautiful St. John. - Mark

Relaxing night time experience

There isn't too much to do on St John as far as activities go at night so we decided to give this a shot. Overall it was pretty fun, we got to see some bit tarpon and be on the ocean at night which is neat. It is in a little bay at the Westin so a novice kayaker won't have any issue.

We agree... Once you hit the bars / restaurants a few nights back to back enjoying a relaxing / unique LED Night Kayak tour with us is a no brainer. Glad you enjoyed the calm waters and beautiful starry sky. We hope you join us again next year! - Mark

Just ok
Kim_L

We loved that we could apply some neon paint and light up under the lights with pictures taken for us. We liked the clear bottomed boats that were lit up to help us see the fish. But to call this a neon Kayak tour is a little deceptive. I would call it a float. We could hardly paddle our kayaks because we pretty much just floated in the small Bay Area. There were a bunch of kayaks so I felt like we were always bumping into someone or someone was bumping into us. Not the best experience. I think if we were told this up front our expectations would have been different. Maybe we would have liked it more. It's just ok.

Fun Excursion for Friends & Family

Fun excursion to be out in the bay at night with under lighting on our kayaks. Saw lots of tarpons and other fish swimming around us. Even spotted a large stingray.
