St. Thomas is steeped in pirate history. Paddle through the winding waterways of the Mangrove Lagoon and hear spooky pirate and ghost stories. Enjoy the starlit sky and the dark mangroves as you look for stingrays, tarpon, and other marine life in the dark waters below your kayak.

You'll go back in time and relive those days when pirates, ghosts, and jumbies still roamed the islands. And believe me, some of them are more than just a memory from the past…

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.
