Kayak Virgin Islands!
St Croix kayaking is a great way to get some exercise and experience Caribbean tropical beauty and nature at the same time. You can book a kayak tour with one of the many professional kayak operators on the island. Kayak Virgin Islands tours are provided by locally-licensed companies who offer kayak rentals by the hour, half day or full day on guided tours of key attractions and St Croix environmental landmarks.
Right next door to Villa Margarita, you can take a guided kayak tour of Salt River National Park and Ecological Preserve. Here you’ll find a unique combination of ecological, cultural and historical highlights. One is the very spot where Columbus landed in 1493, called Columbus Landing. If you’re up for the ultimate kayak Virgin Islands experience, then you absolutely must do a night kayak tour in one of St Croix’s two bioluminescent bays. You’ll be blown away by the glowing jellyfish, glow worms, and illuminating microorganisms as they light up your path through the night water! Using a see-thru kayak really enhances the experience.
Kayak rentals are also available at many St Croix resorts & beaches, including The Buccaneer, Cheney Beach Resort, Tamarind Reef Resort.
