A kayak trip was on my wish list for our trip and I had selected Arawak in advance of arriving. We tried a couple of times to stop by the shop and after the third attempt they were open. They didn't have any trips booked that afternoon but the owner called one of his guides to take me and my... More

Excellent tour, well organized. Took the all day kayaking and snorkeling tour to Huricane Hole, St Johns. It took a 1/2 hour drive to get there and back but was worth it. The water is very calm, top quality 2 person kayaks were provided as well as a GREAT lunch which was well earned after 2 hours of kayaking and... More

Excellent time. Will rent for entire week next time. No issues leaving them strapped to the car. It's St. John so nothing to worry about. Went to Maho and Francis beach. Perfect call day and tons of turtle spotting from atop the paddle board.

I can't say enough incredible things about our experience with Arawak's Virgin Islands Kayak tour. Our guides (Liz, Cory and Michael) were not only incredibly knowledgeable but quickly became our friendly companions on the adventure. Definitely not the vacation for those who want to just sit on the beach and drink in the sun. This trip provides an incredible view... More

We called from Florida to reserve 2 SUP's from Arawak Expeditions for the Paddle the Park race. When we arrived at Maho bay early on the morning of the event they had the equipment on the beach set up and ready to go. All we had to do was hop on and paddle. Thanks to Arthur and his crew!

We fished with Adam. I boarded the boat on a mission for tarpon and it didn't take long to hook up. Adam told us were the fish most likely were and he was RIGHT! Ive seen lots of tarpon that won't bite in FL over the past 20 +years but these fish were biting and ready to put on a... More

Josh, think that's his name... From Colorado was extremely helpful. The process was very easy and the Paddle Boards are first class. Will be renting again on our Nov-Dec trip. St. John is the best to experience all the beauty it has to offer on a P-Board

We have been customers of Arawak Expeditions for several years. If you want more than the obligatory taxi tour or day on the beach then Arawak can arrange the experience. We have kayaked and snorkeled in limited access areas with Arawak guides. As the only true fly fishing guide service in the St. Thomas/St John's region, I have spent many... More
