This was such a fun experience. Our guide, Liz, was so good at making each of us feel comfortable. She gave us lots of local history. We kayaked until time for lunch, then had a lovely picnic on the beach where we were to snorkel. This being my first time, it was a good place to snorkel. Water was calm... More

We had a large, multi-family trip to St John in early April. We booked with Arawak a fly fishing trip for two and a guided kayak trip for the entire family (ages ranged from 8 to 70). Overall, very good experience with booking process, guides and experience itself. A few details 1. My sister and I fly fished with Dustin... More

My husband booked us on our Arawak adventure, the Hurricane Hole Kayak and Snorkel guided tour, and we had an excellent time. We ended up on a private tour. Our instructor, Lauren, was incredibly fun and knowledgeable about the area. The kayaking was in very smooth waters so would be easy for even the most inexperienced kayakers. The majority of...

My wife, son and I did the full day Hurricane Hole ocean kayak and snorkel trip. The trip was from around 9 AM to about 4 PM, with a little over 5 hours on the water. Our guide, Jessica, was very knowledgeable about all things in Hurricane Hole; aquatic life, plant life, and wildlife. We started at Princess Bay at... More

Captain Arthur arranged a half day for me to fly fish with Dustin. He picked me up right on time (in St. Thomas, not St. John, so his commute was considerable) and we got right on the water. Dustin was able to correct several bad habits in my cast and had me throwing a respectable back hand double haul in... More

Spent our second full day in St John on a great Arawak Expeditions kayak and snorkel trip in Hurricane Hole. Our guide Jessica was knowledgeable, fun, and made sure the whole family was having a great experience. She even had a battery we could use when our underwater camera's battery prematurely died. If you like to paddle and you want... More

Stopped in here and rented snorkel equipment for the day. They also rent for the week and the prices are reasonable. The guy in the shop (can't remember his name) also does fly fishing trips. He was helpful with suggestions of places to snorkel.

Although the the USVI aren't well known for its fly fishing opportunities, I decided to book a last minute trip with my girlfriend. Coming from PA, I've done plenty of fresh water fly fishing, so salt was completely new to me. Dustin was our captain and guide, from speaking with him, this was his second year guiding in the USVI... More
