Although we had one other twosome join us, we had a great time. My teenage daughter and I actually were in sync and able to navigate against really strong winds to Honeymoon Bay. The snorkeling was great and our guide was patient, informative and professional. He did not push us out of our comfort zone, (IT WAS REALLY windy!) but... More

We rented kayaks for the week before our arrival from Arawak. Once we got to our villa we realized carrying around two kayaks for the week was not going to be easy from the top of Bordeaux Mountain! The kayaks had been delivered by Scott to our villa. We called Arthur and explained our predicament. He quickly and patiently worked... More

Our party of nine had a great day kayaking and exploring Hurricane Hole with Jessica. She was very knowledgable and pointed out interesting sea life in the crystal clear water as she snorkeled along with us. Jessica was flexible and allowed us to decide if we wanted extra snorkeling time at locations. We did a lot of adventures on St... More

I rented a paddle board for a week and loved every minute I spent paddling on the water around St. John.

My wife and 3 kids went to Hurricane hole and paddled out via Kayaks to a few awesome snorkeling spots. Had lunch prepared by staff on the beach and saw some awesome sea life in the coral and mangroves. Terrific guide Jessica! Would highly recommend it!

We just returned from a 9 day stay in St. John and this excursion was definitely one of our family favorites! Liz was an amazing guide! We did the Hurricane Hole trip. The mangroves are absolutely gorgeous and the scenery was beautiful. Hurricane Hole was very isolated and quiet..... tranquil! We took our 8 & 10 year old daughters. They... More

Rented snorkel gear. The clerk was extremely helpful and nice. I had just come from Just Beach (in the same shopping center). The clerk working at Just Beach had an extreme attitude. It was pleasant to find another snorkel rental place in the same shopping center. I would definitely recommend Arawak over Just Beach

We booked a 1/2 day kayak and snorkel trip. Our tor guide Liz was terrific. We paddled out of Cruz bay to Honeymoon beach and did some snorkeling. We then paddled over to Solomon for more snorkeling. Both places offered great viewing of reef life. Liz was very helpful and knowledgeable in locating and pointing out hidden sea life. Well... More

We took the all-day kayak trip in Hurricane Hole, named for its use as shelter from major storms. The area is protected land and water and Arawak has a license to run a limited number of trips. In the entire day, we saw one small sailboat and no people. Our guide Jessica was great - always eager to answer questions... More
