You'll visit Creole Rock, ideal for snorkeling thanks to its shallow waters and abundance of fish. You're sure to see all sorts of marine life; if you're lucky, you may even spot sea turtles.

This must be a part of your trip! You get to see the island from the ocean on a rhino boat, snorkel at Creole Rock and have a blast! Leo took excellent care of us at the dock and William did a great job with our tour!

The Rhino Safari snorkeling tour is a MUST DO (I can’t stress that enough) for anyone visiting St Maarten! You can ride together or captain your own dingy (recommend your own dingy) as you ride past gorgeous views on your way to Creole Rock. My husband is not a strong swimmer

Fun adventure on the open water
Rhino Tours lets you be the captain. The adventure has you follow a guide while you pilot a zippy little motorboat.
