Very enjoyable tour, multiple stops for swimming and snorkeling. The crew was very helpful, knowledgeable and courteous. The food and drinks were great.
Absolutely loved this trip! We were not able to visit the island of Prickly Pear due to ground swell, but luckily we got to snorkel at Creole Rock. The captain and crew were very attentive and engaging. We would definitely do this trip again. It is an amazing trip for the price. The scenery is beautiful, lunch was good, and the rum punch was never ending. Can't wait to visit again!
It was wonderful! My husband and I had so much fun. Strangely enough, we met folks from our home, Massachusetts and New Hampshire, on the trip. The food was beautifully presented and tasted out of this world. Pieter and Marion were gracious hosts. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Five Stars!

My wife and I had a great time on this trip! The crew was a very friendly Dutch couple, and there was loads of room on the boat. They prepared us a legitimately delicious lunch, along with homemade rum cake, and they kept our drinks full. This was the perfect trip for my wife and I, since she would have gotten seasick on one of the smaller boats, and we got to enjoy the company of the other passengers and crew on board this massive sail boat. We also enjoyed the snorkeling in Long Bay.

The Rhino Safari is definitely worth the time and money. The staff were fantastic and our tour guide Donnie was very patient and helpful. The tour takes you along the French side and shows you parts of the island you may not normally see. The snorkeling spot at Creole Rock is great and you have plenty of time to explore. The location is on a main road and easy to find if you look for the Rhino Safari sign. Make sure you bring a towel with you.
We had a great time on our tour of St Maarten. We easily found our pick-up location and the group was very friendly and courteous. Our guides were great and pointed out a lot of interesting things about the island as we drove. They provided refreshments along the way and once we got to Orient beach we were able to get two lounge chairs with an umbrella and a drink for each of us for 10. Orient beach is beautiful and large so you can either stay on your chair, play in the ocean or walk along the beach. We loved both the Orient beach and the Maho beach, but the Maho beach is amazing as the huge planes go right over your head. I haven't seen anything like that and it was pretty thrilling. I would highly recommend this tour. They are very professional, timely and provide interesting information. Also the groups are smaller - we had around 15 people in the van which made it nice.
Great orientation tour of the main highlights of this beautiful island. We are happy that we booked this excursion of both the Dutch and the French sides of the island.
Our guide was fabulous, had a great sense of humor, and was very knowledgeable. We learned a lot about the history of the island as well as the flora and the fauna. Feeding the Iguanas was quite a sight! Marigot the French capital reminded us of being on the French Riviera. Very charming.
We would have liked to have spent some time in Grand Case but due to rain and heavy traffic we were unable to do so. However the extra time at Mayo watching the planes land over the beach was well worth it.
This excusion is well worth the money and is highly recommended !

The title of this tour is Anguilla Day Trip. It was not what we thought. It was on the boat from 9-5 with a stop for snorkeling for about an hour and a stop at a beach for lunch in Anguilla for about 1 1/2 hour. Water was rough in the morning, calmer in the afternoon but not fun for anyone who is not good on a boat.
If you are looking to spend a day in Anguilla, this is not it. If you are looking to spend a day on a nice boat sailing in the Caribbean with nice captain, crew and cocktails, this is the one for you.

This tour was the highlight of our trip. The staff was courteous, helpful and knowledgeable. The tour was as described and we saw beautiful sites and marinas. Be aware the water can be a little rough depending on the wind and weather so it is suitable for the adventurous types. I will definitely return for this adventure the next time we return. In addition there is a lovely French bakery a few doors down which has seating overlooking the marina and is real bonus if you arrive early like we did.
It was interesting and good for families with kids or more seasoned adults - very low key and quiet. There were only two kinds of snacks, both of which I couldn't eat. Also, the drinks are very basic like a couple of beers, white wine, or sodas. There wasn't music or any kind of ambiance. I heard that if you're looking for more of that kind of vibe for younger childless adults that the mid-day cruises are much better.

Excellent tour for the money and time spent. Etienne was a very pleasant guide and open to suggestions. Pick up and drop off at the hotel was convenient. We got a complete overview of the island in 4 and a half hours which was our goal. Would definitely recommend this one and booking through Viator was easy and reliable.
THE TRIP WAS FINE BUT THE PORT LISTED TO LEAVE WAS INCORRECT CAUSING US TO RACE TO ANOTHER PORT TO MAKE THE FERRY
Gave this as a Christmas gift to my son and his finance. It was a beautiful day, they told me. Pool experience was great. They got into the ocean and visablility was zero. That was a costly gift to see nothing. Vendor did not tell them ahead of time and no alternate dates were offered, not even a come on back and snorkel with us. Definitely wouldn't recommend and we are in st Maarten every year.

I arrange this tour very far in advance of actual day...so I was very apprehensive about the entire thing. We were picked up at our hotel and the driver was exceedingly nice. The vehicle was clean, the driver was cordial to each person, and we were offered something to drink. He spoke excellent English and shared much information with us. We enjoyed the tour and would book through the same service again.

We would highly recommend this tour for singles or couples. We had a great time. We caught a great sunset just before leaving the dock area. The crew and skipper were helpful during the entire cruise. The dinner menu was excellent. We met people from different parts of the country. My nephew and his girlfriend came along to enjoy a peaceful vacation in St. Maarten and see the clear tranquil blue waters.
