Comments [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 St.Croix, areas inshore from the walls had sand particles in the water making it a challenge to avoid back scatter. Eating at most restaurants was slightly pricey but the food was generally good to excellent. Would go again.
