This was an awesome experience. My wife, kids and I never tried kayak before (I did SUP number of times) and wanted to combine some time on the water with this new experience. We were driving from Coral Bay which was an interesting experience by itself, due to windy roads and steep descents. When we arrived at Westin the guard directed us where to park a car. The Westin resort is pretty large and confusing but they have assistants driving the gold carts and one picked us up as soon as we parked the car, which was very nice.
When we arrived at the beach the boats were already ready and waiting for us. The location is really beautiful, despite boats coming and going (ahem fast cat). The two guides had plenty of paint available for us to ha e fun with, and kids definitely had a blast painting their faces while we had a good time chatting with the guides about the island live and location. The guides had many good stories and funny jokes that kids enjoyed.
There was another group besides us that arrived a little later. After everybody was ready we received a life west and one by one paddled into a harbor where we would wait for a guide. We had one guide paddle in SUP in front, making sure everybody is doing ok with paddling and we had another guide on the back making sure nobody falls behind. We had some initial paddling issues and boats themselves are not super comfortable but it’s all part of the experience. So staying calm and enjoying the evening was our goal, which was achieved. Along the way we parked at several stopes to see if fish will arrive. It was still light outside during our first stop so we did not see any fish their but the guides were cracking jokes and having a good conversations which was awesome. At our second stop it got darker and the large fish started showing up everywhere. The floated right under the boat and were attracted to the lights that boat was caring. The boat is see-through so we saw the fish floating everywhere. By the end of the trip the warm rain poured over us adding to a cool experience. After saying bye to the guides we walked towards the car and ended up jumping into a pool which was mostly empty. Win win for an amazing evening.
Overall this is not a strenuous activity and ment for a very easy trip so if you are looking for a very specific challenge this might not be it. However, if you want an easy float around a harbor, with possibility to see the fish but mostly to just spend some time with your family or friends in nice location than this is the experience for you.

What a fun and unique activity!! Spencer was great and entertained the kids and adults alike with jokes and fun facts about the island and local wildlife. We saw lots of tarpons eating ballyhoo and listened to the melodies of the coki frogs. Highly recommend!!

We had a group of 8 people . The youngest in our group was 11 . We were nervous because we were first time kayakers and it was at night . It was a quick easy ride around the bay . We saw lots of terpin which kinda looked like Baby sharks . The guides were patient . The views were pretty . Jokes were funny . They took pictures of you before you got on the boat and then they take pictures of you coming to sure . They text or airdrop you the pictures when you are all finished . We stayed in St. Thomas so we took the ferry over to St.John . $8.15 per person each way cash only . Then we took a taxi to resort . It was a 10 minute ride $5 per person cash only . This experience was definitely worth the money .

Probably a great activity with younger kids. Our kids are 19 and 21, with kayaking experience, so it was a little underwhelming. I thought we would go out farther, but we only stayed in the bay at the Westin Resort. We saw some tarpon. The program was well run, and they took pictures of us and sent them without cost which was great. The paddling was only about 35-40 min total.

Spencer and Grant were AMAZING! From beginning to end awesome experience! Your started on time, both leaders gave a sense of safety and trust, which was super important to our group. If you haven’t had a clear bottom kayak experience, it’s time that have one now. Most ppl only live once and this is the way to live! Great seeing cool wildlife, guides were extremely knowledgeable about island/fish/wildlife/history & celebrities. It’s better than every review I read. Guides were full of energy late at night, kept the group laughing the entire time, overall fabulous!! Be sure to tip your guides, they are humble & deserve every penny! This is a must when visiting St John!

Really a wonderful experience. My 16 year old son: "That was INSANE fun!". Jay and Spencer kept us laughing and in high spirits as we soaked in the night sky, the frog calls, and the plentiful fish that swam around us and one even jumped into our kayak!

Our family of 5 did this tour together. The whole night aspect was cool, and appealed to the kids. The concept of the night kayak tour is nice, however the location and what you see was the reason I gave it 4 out of 5. I only saw Tarpon and tiny fish. There is no coral in the Westin bay area, you float around for 50 minutes with Tarpon following you. This tour would be much better if there was any coral or a variety of fish/aquatic animals to see, and was disappointing for me having spent so much money on the family for the short tour.

Fantastic tour of the Westin Kayak at sunset, (6;30 tour) to nightfall. Great crew running the excursion which takes you on a short tour of the Westin lagoon and mooring field on a lighted see thru bottom kayak). Saw numerous nice size tarpon during our paddle, and enjoyed the tour guides jokes and banter. A great family activity. Not necessary to have any kayak experience. You are in a 2 man kayak, so you can take the young ones along for the trip in the very calm harbor. Beautiful night looking at the lights on the shore from the water. I highly recommend this tour.

We had a great time! Our guide, Kril, was kind and knowledgeable and created a safe and enjoyable experience. We were able to see some cool marine life, and it being on the water at night was quite peaceful and relaxing. It was definitely a highlight of our trip and we hope to come back soon!

Watched rays and tarpon cruise under our kayaks. Lewis, our guide, pointed out ballyhoo jumping out of the water to avoid predators and a turtle on the bottom. We watched as the turtle slowly surfaced and swam away. Lewis was quite skilled at stand up paddle-boarding backwards, in the dark, while telling jokes and dishing out facts about the wildlife. Really nice experience.
