Hi Bleed,
Yes, it was a gas! I'd book it again in a second!

Was the rhino tippy at and how fast do they go? What was the beach like that they took you to? Would love to hear more about this excursion.

NO, the Rhino riders don't tip, but yes, they can go fast and dress for getting very wet.. The beach we went to was totally empty and a good swim from the boats to the shore if you wanted to go there, otherwise you can snorkel or just sit and relax on your boat.

A word of caution....if you do decide to get off the boat, its a bit tricky getting back in..

Okay...sounds like fun!! One more question though...how far? Am I gonna need to hit the pool now to get my strength up for the swim? This sounds like a blast! Does this excursion book up fast, meaning should I reserve now just in case...not too sure how many can go on this excursion...there are 6 of us that would be interest ( all adults).

HI Angel,
Its not a far swim to the beach and the water is calm, its a little alcove, but it does require swimming, too deep to just wade through.

does this excursion give you a ride to/from the ship, description did not state this.

3 hours total..are there places to get drinks or go to the bathroom?

I'm debating with a few other boat style excursions that go to less secluded places such as grand case or orient beach...any advise on those?

Thanks so much.. I'm excited about the upcoming trip.
