“Great Adventure Awesome Excursion”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Had a great time awesome way to see the island rather the just driving around. Booked excursion on our cruise and it was by far the best excursion of the entire cruise. Would definitely recommend it to everyone to try and would definitely do it again when and if I do another cruise.

“Awesome Adventure!”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

My 13 year old and I booked the Rhino Riders to Creole Rock online prior to our cruise. The Creole Rock excursion takes you past Happy Beach (where the cruise ship excursions go). The snorkelling at Creole Rock was very good. We had lots of laughs and a lot of sliding around on the seat of the "boat". A highly recommended adventure for those who want to get wet, don't mind waves and can swim since there are no docking facilities at Creole Rock.

“Fun alternative to the typical island tour”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

This was a fun way to see the island from the shore line instead of the typical land tour. We booked the excursion while on a cruise on the Royal Princess. After a bus ride to the bay where the Rhinos were docked, they gave a quick safety and driving presentation for the Rhinos (part wave runner part gigantic rubber raft). Our particular tour went to Happy Bay and and took us past the shoreline of nearly half the island. On the way we drove by the sail boats, large yachts, and wrecked ships. We also drove under two draw bridges and slowed down by a couple of beaches that were pointed out by the guides. The ride was a little rough in the open water on the way out to Happy Bay, but the Rhino boats are very sturdy. The only downside to our tour was that Happy Bay is a remote beach. In some ways that was a positive because hardly any one else was there while we were, but a negative because there are no amenities or restrooms out there. We had to leave our Rhinos connected to the guides about 30 feet off shore and swim to the beach. The swim wasn't too bad, but the beach has many rocky spots. A couple places had large rock shelfs and others had smaller rocks that can scrape you up if they get swirled up by a large wave. They provided bottled water and snorkels if you wanted to snorkel while at the beach. Overall, we had a lot of fun and thought the guides and other staff were very friendly.

All the crew at the Rhinos wish you both a wonderful new year and would like to thank you for your input. The Christmas winds do stir up the sea a little at times but happy to hear you had a great time with us.

“Fantastic Tour”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

We were on Holland America and booked this tour. It was soooo much fun! We had our grandson with us and they pt us in a "Family" Rhino Rider so we could all be together. I was expecting to ride with someone else, so this was a wonderful surprise. We had a fantastic time and it was the highlight of the cruise for our grandson! We purchased the picture of the 3 of us on the Rhino Rider and I am so glad we did! Do NOT miss this tour!

“Great way to view the St. Martin shoreline”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

After reading about it online, we signed up for the Rhino Safari through the activities desk at our hotel. Rhino Safaris has everything you need to take with you on your little water craft and provide safe storage for everything else. The staff was truly excellent, with a great sense of humor, especially our guide, Mr. Venice. We felt very safe and comfortable throughout the excursion, despite having little prior experience with boats. Highly recommended!
