[None]Arawak Inn is a wonderful place to stay. The owners are wonderful and
accommodating. All included breakfast's were very good and rooms were
clean. Highly recommend. Two other divers we met stayed in the cabins
behind Cane Bay dive shop and spoke highly of them. Our group had a 3 boat
dive package. This gave us up to 15 dives, but limited beach diving time as
the first boat dive did not get started until after 10 A.M. and finishing
up near or after 3 P.M. This left little time to organize other day beach
dives after rinsing/storing gear. Next time I would only do the 2 boat
dives and spend more time diving the Pier. Because of previous weather at

slightly pricey but the food was generally good to excellent. Would go
