We had an absolutely wonderful time with the all day snorkeling and kayaking trip to Hurricane Hole! Lots of beautiful views, the snorkeling was so exciting. Lots to see and our guide was wonderful!

My family, including two young teen daughters, LOVED our morning kayak trip with Scott. He was so patient, fun and informative. He knew exactly where to go for the best snorkeling, and we swam with sea turtles and even saw a 4 foot nurse shark. We saw more fish in the few snorkeling spots that Scott took us to than... More

We spent a full week being guided by Arawak Expeditions. We were picked up at Concordia, our eco-accomodations (which also had great staff and great food) each morning and were dropped off at 4:30 in the evening and each day was more amazing than the last. Everyday we went snorkeling at 2-3 different places plus either kayaked, hiked or paddle... More

Spent 5 days kayaking with Guides Scott, Liz and 10 new friends in the BVI. Great experience. Itinerary allowed us to relax and paddle in the same location for two days at a time. Equipment, tents, snorkeling gear and kayaks were in perfect shape. The trip was a great combination of rural camping and urban restaurants/gift shops.

My wife and I did the 3 Hr tour to Honeymoon beach and Henley cay. Fletcher, our guide, was very informative and engaging. So much to see. Turtles,brightly colored coral and all kinds of fish. Very well located near the ferry dock in Cruz Bay. We had a great time and 3 Hrs was a perfect amount of time.

I did the 3 hour Henley Cay kayak and snorkeling trip and had an absolute blast. I had done kayaking in rivers/lagoons before and the paddling was definitely much more challenging on this trip since you're in more open and choppy waters, but it was absolutely worth it. We saw so much cool marine life while we were snorkeling, including... More

Friendly guides (Liz and Scott if I remember correctly) and show you nice places during the trips. If you want to rent a kayak on your own and going from Cruz bay to the cays and isolated north shore beaches, I would recommend doing a guided tour first unless you have already done kayak in the open ocean. Surprisingly the... More

Wow!!! My husband and I recently spent an excellent "adventure week" in St. John. Staying at the eco resort Concordia and being guided each day by the Arawak staff was exactly the combination of adventure and comfort we were looking for. From being met/picked up at the Ferry to being delivered back to the ferry at the end of the... More

We rented stand up paddle boards (SUP's) from Arthur. He was very helpful with loading and unloading the boards and the whole transaction was a pleasure. Paddle boarding in Maho Bay with the sea turtles is an amazing experience and something that should be on everyone's bucket list. Arthur himself is a great person an quite literally saved my vacation.... More

If you are familiar with most areas where mangroves grow, you might find yourself asking why one might choose to snorkel in the mangrove forest. Rest assured that this is not the endless mangrove swamp, but a fringe forest, and the areas you will snorkel near Princess Bay are truly remarkable. Mark, our guide, was quote knowledgable about the flora... More
