No kidding, the French police chased us down in our boats and escorted us back to the Dutch side of the island—pretty weird—the tour guide said that hadn’t happened before. I guess they didn’t want Americans swimming in French water?? Aside from that we had a great trip. So much more fun riding your own boat than sitting on a soggy booze cruise with a bunch of drunk people. Andrew was a good guide and made up a plan B for us. We ended up going to indigo beach and snorkeling which had many colorful fish and a wreck which was cool to snorkel to. Seeing all of the wrecks in the harbor was eye opening. (From hurricane in 2017) All in all it was a great trip which I highly recommend—it isn’t that hard to get back in the boat unless maybe you are overweight enough you can not pull up your own body weight. Great trip, great guide…

My mother-in-law and I went in August 2019. It was the most fun we had on the island. We rode the rhinos a long distance to the snorkeling spot and on the way there are breath taking views. The snorkeling was a lot of fun and I saw a lot of the “dory” fish, I don’t know the technical term for these fish. We then drove back. You do ride at a high speed, but this is what made it so much fun. I would purposely drive into big waves. They give you rhinos and not jet skis, because these are extremely hard to flip. If these were easy to flip, I would have flipped many times. This trip is a great value, because you’re in the water for a long time. There’s a lot of negative reviews that regard the quality of sunglasses, etc, and photos. I did not buy these and so I can not say if this is true or not. However, there are also negative reviews for the employees being rude. I did experience this somewhat. There was a male customer on the trip with me and after the snorkeling the employees throw you water bottles from their rhinos to your rhinos. My self and my mother in law caught ours the first time, but the male customer missed his 1st, 2nd, and 3rd bottle they threw him. The employee then shrugged his shoulders and said well that’s it there’s no more. Also, it is hard to hear the directions they give you, because of all the noise the waves make. The employees do come across as rude if you do not hear them the first time. Getting back on the rhino after snorkeling is a VeRY difficult task. There were at least half of the customers that needed help getting back on the rhino, the employees did help with this and were not irritated. They were happy to help in this regard. Overall it was a lot of fun and I highly recommend for you to experience this trip if you get the chance.…
