st. maartin water excursions RCCL
On Mariner 9/14.. toss up between the following:

Rhino Aventure (forums state this is fun).
pro: Fun (jet ski style adventure)
con: only see a few places though we can taxi to others after

Aqua Boat Cruise and Beach Safari (goes to grand case)
pro: boat tour and visit to a non-secluded beach
con: shortest one, not sure how much driving the boat time we have

Aqua Boat and Jeep (goes to more places incl orient bch, though I'm not thrilled to see naked people!! lol).
pro: get to see a variety of places and still get some boat time
con: not sure if we will get enough time at each place

If we do the rhino..can we easily/cheaply make it to some of the famous sites via taxi??

Yep, did the Rhino adventure and it was a gas! You will get plenty wet, so wear your swimsuits, great excursion and a good way to see parts of St. Maarten you normally wouldn't be able to.

do you recall if the rccl excursion provides transportation to/from the ship for this. It was not mentioned for the Rhino..but was stated in other excursions...

Yes Bev,
Transportation was included in the price.

update - enjoyed the Rhino adventure very much...but we happened to get a FLAT bottom one, while others did not. Must have drawn the short straw..but the FLAT bottom made this VERY bumpy. Enjoyed that sodas were provided for us also - that was a very nice extra.
