Happened upon Arawak Expeditions while eating at the deli in Mongoose Junction. Arthur suggested a waterproof case for our cell phone for $44. I was skeptical that it would work, but our underwater sea turtle pictures & video (on an old iPhone 5s) are excellent!! We also rented snorkel gear at an affordable price from Arthur as well. I highly... More

Booked our trip and ended up having a private tour as no one else was scheduled. The guide was very good with pointers and detailed descriptions during the snorkeling which was amazing! Be prepared to be tired at the end as the kayaking is great but tiring!

Great fun due to highly educated staff on all the components of both land and sea wildlife. You would have thought our guide had a phd in marine biology. She was also very professional, patient, and had a great positive attitude at all times.

We loved our half-day guided kayak and snorkel trip! Our guide, Liz, was very friendly, knowledgeable, and gave great directions to keep our group safe and together. The scenery along the north shore was beautiful and the snorkel spot on Henley Cay was excellent!

Good service- online rental was problem free, no hassle delivery with week's rental. Prices were on par with other places, and I liked the ease of the online rental. Would rent again!

We did the half day kayak/snorkel trip to Henley Cay and Honeymoon Bay with our guide Jim. It was a good paddle in 'sit in' kayaks (hard to find on the island) out to Henley then beautiful snorkeling on Henley Cay. Jim's knowledge of the coral was amazing. Next visit we will do a full day trip for sure! I... More

We took a 3.5-4 h kayak trip from Hansen's beach to Hurricane Hole with plenty of lovely snorkeling at the end. Our guide, Steve, was great. We felt completely at ease and he showed us many lovely things. A great day for all.
