Boat Tour with the Frenchman!
Not sure what to do with your guests? Want to enjoy a few hours on a boat with a few friends or family? With Seaside Tour, you can take a nice romantic cruise for two, or plan a fun celebration with family, all for the same reasonable price. Seaside Tour operates a new, 25- foot custom glass-bottom boat with canopy top for shade and open sides for a good breeze and to view the shore. The glass bottom allows you to take in all the wonderful underwater life surrounding St. Croix. The whole experience is a great off-shore photo opportunity as well!
Captain Thierry Leklou, a former pilot originally from France, has made his home here on St. Croix for the last four years with his wife and two daughters. He has enjoyed diving, snorkeling, and windsurfing in France and Florida, but says, St. Croix is "the most wonderful place to snorkel." It is his love of the waters of St. Croix that prompted him to start his own glass-bottom boat business. He now shares the beauty of Christiansted Harbor and the waters beyond with his customers.
Captain Leklou, US Coast Guard licensed captain, says, "St. Croix has many sunshinefilled days, warm waters, and stunning views along the beautifully carved coastline. It doesn't matter if you are looking down through the glass floor of the boat or taking in the views of shore, the vibrant colors and textures of St. Croix make each trip out unique. Some trips include turtle viewing while others include colorful sea plants and fish."
Seaside Tour customers have asked to go snorkeling, swimming, and take private cruises to Green Cay. But most often, the tours are a combination, allowing you time to get into the waters and time to view the incredible beauty of St. Croix. Don't be afraid to ask him to turn around to see something again or to stay a little longer, Captain Leklou wants his customers to be happy!
