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

Mark was our guide and he was great. We took the kayak trip to Hurricane Hole and even though just me and my wife were booked he took us out anyway. What a score! He was very knowledgable, and very personable. Also Mark made the right call on the weather. The weather forecast was iffy that day (chance of rain... More

We did the kayak trip at Hurricane Hole. It was a terrific trip. The kayaking wasn't to strenuous, of course that fact that there was no wind might of had something to do with that. The snorkeling in the Mangroves was fantastic the water was so clear. So many differnt things to see things that you don't see when you... More

We had a FANTASTIC kayak trip with Scott. He did a great job feeling out a kayak pace that was comfortable for us. It took about 3 hours beginning to end. He found the best spots to stop. He's easy going and very knowledgable. There were beautiful views from our tandem kayak and even better views when we were snorkeling.... More

My wife and son and I spent Spring Break on St. John the first week of April, 2014. Probably the most fun and amazing thing we did was to take a guided Mangrove snorkeling tour with Arawak Expeditions. Another family joined us on the trip, and we paddled tandem kayaks around Hurricane Hole with our guide (sorry, can't remember his... More

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.

Very well located near the ferry dock in Cruz Bay. We had a great time and 3 Hrs was a perfect amount of time.
