I reserved a paddle board for a week (beginning the day after we arrived) as we had reserved a house that was on the water. When we arrived, there were some issues with the house and we were forced to change properties (no longer on the water). I called Arawak immediately (prior to delivery of the board) and explained the... More

I am sorry that you think we were unfair in dealing with your SUP rental. I think we have a very generous cancellation policy, which we adhere to. When you booked your rental with us, you received an email confirmation which clearly explained our cancellation policy. Our policy is quite simple: you can cancel for ANY reason up to 24... More

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

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.
