My wife and I did the 5-day Kayak and Camp trip this past week. The whole trip was excellent. Our guide, Mark, was easy-going, knowledgeable, and fun. He is also an excellent chef! Two days on Peter Island with trips to great snorkeling places. Then, paddled over to Jost Van Dyke for another 2 days. Each day we paddled about... More

The highest rating is repeat business. Holly & I went had such a good time on the north coast tour with Liz that we joined her for a second day later in the week on the Hurricane Hole tour. Comparing the two tours, as novice open water kayakers we found the north coast tour to be pleasantly challenging but not... More

We've used this company a couple of times now. Did the kayak trip out of Cruz Bay and had a great day...even though we almost sunk! We had a problem with our kayak and our guide paddled all the back to get what she needed so we could continue! It was all very entertaining!

We loved our day trip with Mark from Arawak doing a kayak and snorkeling adventure at Hurricane Hole. Mark, our guide, was great, personable and very knowledgeable about kayaking, snorkeling and the whole Hurricane Hole area, as well as St John. The weather was perfect. The water crystal clear. We saw many different fish among the mangroves. I would recommend... More

We had a memorably wonderful day kayaking and snorkeling with Mark from Arawak. We explored the mangroves in Hurricane Hole in the East End -- Princess Bay, Otter Creek and Water Creek. It was fascinating and so exciting to discover the marine life, including fish, sponges, worms and coral living among the mangroves. Mark is knowledgeable, interesting and fun. The... More

Went on Kayak and Snorkel Trip with Mark from Arawak. We were a small group of 5, either in dual Kayak or singles. Went to Honeymoon Beach, saw quite a few colorful fish during the snorkel part of the trip. Mark did a great job addressing different levels of skill and went out of his way to help. We were...

We read about arawak expedition in the November issue of Outside magazine where they recommended to do the all day kayak trip around hurricane hole. Our guide, Liz, was extremely knowledgeable about the area and the island which made the trip much more enjoyable. They serve a nice lunch prepared that day at a deli next to their shop, which...

My son and I had an absolute fantastic day with guide Dustin Tarpon fishing. He is very knowledgeable, professional and patient. My son hooked several Tarpon and landed 1 big Snook, and I was fortunate to land one Tarpon with Dustin's coaching and of course had "the big one" get away. I would highly recommend Arawak Expeditions and Dustin as... More

Arawak guide, Dustin, was my guide for a half day fly fishing December 2014. Catching tarpon was the game, a game typically won by the tarpon...they can be hooked but bringing them to the boat is something I have heretofore been unable to do. These fish are prehistoric like with tremendous strength. Today I not only hooked 3 tarpon but... More

The 4 of us had a fantastic 3 hour kayak tour with our delightful guide out to Honeymoon Beach and Henley Kay. Honeymoon Beach was nice, but Henley Kay was amazing! Our guide found a nurse shark and the 4 of us spent about 20 minutes observing the nurse shark. The coral was amazing and very colorful. A fantastic way... More
