My wife and I are novice kayakers, and had never been on open water before, but with Laurens professional instruction and guidance we were confident enough to try. We were rewarded with a fabulous adventure of open water kayaking and small reef snorkeling that was unforgettable. Thanks: Tony and Mary

We had the opportunity to take a day kayak - snorkle trip to Hurrcane Bay. The trip was amazing. Our guide was a young lady by the name of Loren who went over the top to make sure that we had a great experience. What made the trip note worthy was the small size of the group compared to others...

Rented a kayak for a full day with my wife. We also rented snorkel equipment for the week. Arthur and Mark were awesome. They took the time to explain where to go and went to the nth degree to make our week the best possible. It is clear they love what they do. The rates are way better than the... More

Excellent trip. Kayaking around Hurricane Hole and the coves and snorkeling in the mangroves was fantastic. Worth the money and time. Excellent guides who paddled and snorkeled with us. Provided a great lunch. Would schedule another trip with them without hesitation.

We had a great day with Liz, kayaking and snorkeling around Hurricane Hole on St. John. Liz knew not only the name of all the coral, plant life and animals, but also the history of the Island. She was a great guide and did a wonderful trip!

We had a great day on an all day guided kayak/snorkeling trip. The snorkeling was unbelievable! I have been to St John before and always thought the the snorkeling at Trunk Bay was unbeatable, but our trip to Hurricane Hole proved me wrong. The snorkeling along the mangrove tree lined shores of the bays had a beautiful array of sea... More

We took the full day kayak/snorkeling trip with arawak expeditions to the mangroves in Hurricane Hole. What a great experience! We kayaked from Coral Bay to a little beach (Princess Bay) and then snorkeled among the mangrove forest. Never in my life have we seen the magnitude and diversity of sealife that we saw on this trip!!!!!!!!! The helpful guides... More

I notice that another traveler has already described how well Liz and Matt handled a medical emergency that happened on a day kayak trip from Cruz Bay to Honeymoon Beach and Henley Cay. After several stops with great snorkeling and lunch, I was the person who had the medical emergency and had to be evacuated from the last beach stop.... More

I used Arawak for the third year in a row for a group trip I lead to St John, it was a day kayak trip out of Cruz Bay for 14 of us. As usual, it was a wonderful trip with 3 stops for snorkeling, with a route catered to meet the kayaking needs of this varied group. However what... More

We had a wonderful day with Liz today kayaking Hurricane Hole. She was the best. She took us to one of the most beautiful snorkeling spots we have ever been. She was so knowledgeable about the area and about all of the fish and coral we saw. She treated us all with such respect. No question was too much. And,... More
