Rhino Safari Snorkeling
Double Rider Boat: $172.00
Calling all adrenaline junkies! Get ready for the ride of your life as you and your small group explore the sparkling turquoise waters around St. Maarten.
Upon arrival to the tour headquarters you will be greeted by friendly and enthusiastic staff who will outfit you with the latest safety equipment and snorkeling gear and provide you with a quick operational briefing on the Rhino Rider. These 10-feet-long inflatable watercrafts are sturdy, stable and easy to operate with a steering wheel, throttle and 25HP outboard engine. If you can drive a car, you can drive the Rhino Rider!
New to inflatable watercraft? Not a problem. Your experienced guides will be also riding alongside with you all the way to ensure your safety and enjoyment. Once you have been assigned a Rhino Rider and taken it out for a few test spins, you will enter the exotic waters of Simpson Bay Lagoon, passing by mega yachts of the rich and famous as you make your way to the Caribbean Sea.
Enter the tropical bay of the French capital of Marigot and be greeted by Fort Louis, a French military fort built in 1789 to protect the warehouses of the city. You will also go through Gallis Bay with its wrecked remains of an old steel cargo ship teeming with Caribbean wildlife.
Throughout your journey you will be treated to panoramic views of the finest St. Martin beaches, including Lovers Beach with its two towel-sized shoreline and Friars Bay with its reggae food shacks where locals party the night away during every full moon. Then there is Happy Bay, a charming palm tree-studded beach with a backdrop of grazing goats on the hillside. Along the way you will also discover Grand Case, a small fishing village-turned-restaurant capital of the Caribbean.
Last, but not least, you will reach Creole Rock, considered one of the best snorkeling areas in the region. This rock formation emerging from the water at the end of the bay offers visitors an unparalleled underwater experience. Grab your mask and fins and dive into the crystal-clear water to see conch, crabs, lobsters, starfish and more. Watch in amazement at the parrotfish feasting along the vibrant coral reefs and say hello to the playful sergeant-major fish that surround you. Keep an eye out for dolphins and stingrays!
Those who are not into snorkeling can relax on the Rhino Rider and work on their tan, take a swim over to land or just relax with a complimentary drink and anecdotes delivered by your guides.
Don't miss out on Creole Rock, the must-see destination in the Caribbean. Reserve your Rhino Rider today.
