The staff was very friendly and helpful. Prices on snorkel rental were the best we found on the island. However, on the day we went to return our snorkel gear, nobody was at the shop. We stopped by several times during normal business hours only to find the door locked. Calls to the shop went unanswered. Fortunately, we were staying... More

Incredible day on SUP with Arawak in one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. We were driven out to hurricane hole for our adventure. The ride was fun in that we saw donkeys hosts and sheep in the road and had a nice tour of that end of the island. Once we arrived at HH we got out... More

My his back and I rented a 2 person ocean kayak for the day from Arawak. The kayak was waiting for us on the beach in Cruz bay. It was an easy paddle from there to honeymoon beach, and on around to Caneel Bay, where we had a delicious lunch and enjoyed the beautiful beach and water. I highly recommend... More

Adam, my guide, was amazing. Extremely knowledgeable and an obvious expert in his field. I caught my first tarpon and really appreciate that opportunity.

Much recommended trip. Beautiful lagoon...crystal clear water... very colorful corals. We saw beautiful corals and millions of little fish. This is the perfect trip and worth every penny.

We had an awesome time kayaking Hurricane Hole with Arawak Expeditions. Our guide Rich, was very knowledgeable and attentive to all in our group. Snorkeling the mangroves is truly fascinating!

We fished with Adam, and he was terrific. Unfortunately, the wind was blowing a steady 30 (a SWAG, but a pretty good guess). White caps all day; and the fish were no where to be found, or even seen. Adam was great in spite of the difficulties of the day. We will definitely fish with Arawak again, when next we... More

To start with St. John is heaven on earth!! Fishing with Arawak, and guide Adam was a day to treasure! As fishing will do sometimes, it started slowly but the catching improved all morning with yellowtail,barracuda and snappers of all varieties! Last cast was a tarpon who came right to the boat only to turn away at the last second!... More

Needed a sea kayak while doing research on coral reefs and mangroves on St. John. Talked to Arthur and he set me up with a great long-term price for a two-person yak. Even threw in a soft car-top carrier and showed me how to mount the kayak to handle the extremely rough roads into VIERS on the east end of... More
