Full description
St. Thomas is steeped in pirate history, ghost stories, and folklore. Depart from the Mangrove Lagoon Marina and board a two-person kayak as you watch the sun dip down toward the horizon.

Paddle through the winding waterways through the mangrove trees and hear spooky pirate and ghost stories. Enjoy the starlit sky as you look for stingrays, tarpon, and other marine life in the dark waters below your kayak. And keep your eyes peeled for flocks of birds returning to nest in their roosts with the setting sun.

During several stops along the way your guide will take you back to the times when pirates, ghosts and jumbies (spirits of Caribbean folklore) roamed the islands. Your spine shivers as you hear the tales of some of the area's most famous pirates. From Blackbeard, Bluebeard, and Teach, prepare for a spooky experience when you kayak along the dark waters of the Mangrove Lagoon and hear tales of shipwrecks and the eerie legends that haunt the islands to this day—some of them are more than just a memory from the past. While passing the deserted and eerie Cas Cay, be sure not to pick up any spirit hitchhikers.
