We have kayaked with Liz before and as always it was an excellent trip. Go see her at Mongoose Junction and plan a great day on the water.

Arawak did a great job of delivering a 2-person kayak to our villa and pick it up at the end of the trip. Kayak was in good shape and new and truly enhanced what was a wonderful week in St John.

We had a fantastic time on this trip. We were lead by Rachel a phenomenal person. We got to kayak out to a island off the beaches for our own personal snorkeling area. We stopped at three different beaches for some great snorkeling.

A kayaking trip with Liz along the mangroves shows the very fine magic of St John's marine life. Even though there are a multitude of places in St John to snorkel and see coral, colorful fish and turtles; snorkeling in the mangroves draws your eyes...More
