We had a great ATV tour last week (Feb 2014) with Jose. We were the only ones on the tour as it was not a cruise ship day. If you are staying on the island we recommend choosing a day when a ship is not in port in order to avoid crowds at the activities and on the beaches around Frederiksted. We could tell that Jose enjoyed doing the tour and sharing information with us about his home island.
The review comment about upper body strength on the ATVs is correct. These are heavy machines by themselves. With two people on them you need to be able to put a decent amount of force on the handlebars. Jose kept an eye on us the whole time to make sure we were handling the top of the mountain and mudholes.
The helmets are indeed bike helmets, but if you take things easy and slow down for the turns you will not have a problem.
If you are driving to Frederiksted you will have to park in town near the Customs House and go to the office to check in. Then you will drive out to Rainbow Beach (1 mile) where the ATVs are kept. The office in Frederiksted can be a little hard to find while you are driving. Try to park right behind the Customs House or on a street nearby. The office is through a courtyard off of the parking lot behind the Customs House.
