Our Rhino Rider Snorkeling Adventure, is a fun and adventurous way to explore St Maarten both above and below the water while you drive your own Rhino watercraft. These fun machines are as easy to operate as a wave runner or jetski but offer more room, comfort and stability, making them fun for everyone! These Rhinos truly offer an amazing way to see so much of the beauty Sint Maarten and Saint Martin has to offer.
Your tour begins at our Rhino Base located on the Lagoon. Here you will receive a safety briefing from your guide, provide all necessary gear, explain the operation of these fun machines and practice few movements and spins before setting out on your tour.
As you venture into the waters of the Simpson Bay lagoon, through the Caribbean’s largest lagoon, you’ll maneuver safely between hundreds of boat anchorages, cruising alongside the mega yachts of the Rich and Famous. Check out luxury vessels owned by the likes of Michael Kors, U2, the late Steve Jobs, Donald Trump, even catch a glimpse of the world’s top models sunbathing onboard Victoria Secret’s “Limitless” mega yacht. Overhead you can view the airplanes taking off from our iconic Princess Juliana International Airport and headed for the surrounding hills.
You will continue on into the Caribbean Ocean through the French Bridge, passing close to Marigot and the Marina Royal. Ahead of you, all you can see are yachts and the vivid turquoise waters of the Caribbean.
Cruising along the coast you will see tranquil Friars Bay, Lovers Beach, Happy Bay and the delightful seaside village of Grand Case, and its quiet beaches.
Your Rhino Rider Adventure’s snorkeling destination is a tiny outcrop of an island, located 3 km offshore. The entire formation and surrounding area is part of La Reserve Naturelle de St. Martin, a protected government marine park.
