We went on the half day kayak and snorkel trek. Liz was our guide. She did a great job of making sure our group was prepared and had super fun facts about the islands as we kayaked. The spot we went to snorkel was gorgeous and somewhere we would never have found on our own. I highly recommend Arawak!!!

My husband and I are in our 60's and had a delightful half-day kayak across the channel to Henley, an islet off Cruz Bay. This was the best coral area - the staghorns are healthy and the soft coral abundant. Fish were friendly - they all seemed to be smiling except for the flounder scooching along the bottom. Highl,y, highly... More

We spent a half-day kayaking with Liz and it was a wonderful trip. She was very knowledgeable, experienced, and patient (it was our first time sea-kayaking). We saw the island in a new way and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Everyone at Arawak was professional, friendly, and experienced - a great combination. Well worth the money and we highly recommend.

My son and I booked a 1/2 day trip on March 8th and despite very tough conditions we had an awesome time. Every aspect of the trip was handled professionally including offering to cancel with full refund because of the questionable weather forecast. Great service. I will be back!

Liz was a great great guide and detail-manager. The equipment was top-notch and comfy. The snorkeling was beautiful and varied and we learned a lot about how to observe from Liz, which benefited the rest of our week. The kayaking was really lovely. The lunch was terrific. Cannot recommend this outing highly enough. We did the full day. Happy, happy,... More

We've used Arawak 5-6 times, for multi day and Hurricane Hole day trips. They are terrific. Thoroughly organized. Excellent equipment. This year we kayaked and snorkeled in Hurricane Hole. Liz, our guide on this trip was friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. She made the day more enjoyable than the spectacular mangroves and sea life. I highly recommend them.

The kayak trip through hurricane hole was the highlight of our week! We had Liz who was an excellent and very friendly and easy going guide. We snorkeled at two stops for about 45 minutes to an hour each with a lunch stop in between. We are not experienced kayakers but did just fine for this trip with her expert... More

Rented three kayaks, they helped us load them and we took them wherever we wanted on the island. Very nice people. Gave us tips on best places to go.

We did the 5 day Kayak and Camp trip and had a blast. Our guide Corey was excellent and looked after all our needs during the trip. It was a perfect mix of rough camping and "funky resort" life We were most impressed with their attention to our safety. There was a big wind storm and small craft warning the... More
