This post will give you 5 reasons why you should rent a RIB boat during your vacations on Saint-Martin.

1. Enjoy the elements: Caribbean turquoise sea, Breeze, Sand and Sun

The sound of waves crashing on a shore, the smell in your nose from salty air, and warmth on skin… These are some of the reasons why you will love riding your dinghy around SXM island.

Your choice: If you’re looking for a fast-paced, adrenaline pumping adventure then the thrill ride of your choice is meant just right. If on the other hand you prefer to take it easy while appreciating all that surrounds you; why not slow down and admire how beautiful nature can be on Saint Martin / Sint Maarten island?

2. Freedom at the Captain’s fingertips

Whether your own a Licence or hire a skipper (contact us if you need help), you’re free to go!

If you want to have a memorable trip, then don’t just stay on land. Experience life at sea in an island paradise and feel the wind in your hair before landing on soft powder sand or take advantage of the beautiful beaches that stretch as far into Saint Martin, Saint Barths and Anguilla’s coast lines.

All this can be found from Anse Marcel in Saint Martin / Sint Maarten where there are endless opportunities for adventure waiting around every corner:

  • Breaking waves;
  • Lazying under palm trees in confidential Happy bay;

4. Discover secret places on SXM, St Barths and Anguilla islands

What if we go for authentic, original places that tourists don’t visit as often on our beautiful Caribbean islands? here are some of the best secret spots:

  • Lovers’ beach near Pointe Arago is the smallest beach on the French side of Saint Martin, near Marigot. it is the smallest and most secluded of all beaches in this Caribbean paradise, so named because it can only accommodate two people at once.
  • The wildness of Happy Bay is one reason why it’s so beautiful. The island has preserved its authentic qualities, with some shade available for picnics here as well. It is located near Grand case in French Saint Martin.
  • Tintamarre island is a hidden, lush haven north east of SXM. Part of the Saint Martin National Nature Reserve, it covers nearly 100 hectares. This surprising uninhabited island sheds ruins from an airstrip, a cotton farm as well as of small railway tracks! You might even be able to spot dolphins and turtles around.
  • Geneve Bay in Sint Maarten offers crystal clear waters and pristine natural seawater pools that will make you feel like your in the middle of nowhere.
  • In Anguilla, the Road Salt Pond is a prime location for birdwatching (herons, egrets and stilts), behind Sandy Ground village.
  • Island Harbour, the fishermen’s village on the North East side of Anguilla offers a lovely scenary with colored fishing boats.
  • Dog Island is a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It has two large ponds, sandy beaches with low cliffs. You could spend all day watching seabirds soar overhead, spotting lizards or fearl goats, and soaking sun on the lovely beaches.
  • The Anse du Gouverneur in St Barths is a place of breathtaking beauty, where the panorama includes fine white sand beaches and cliffs rich in vegetation.

5. No hassle & traffic jams

Saint Martin is a small island, and there is one main road going around. This often means traffic jams at peak hours. Are you hoping to visit several places without fighting with the crowd? Riding your own RIB boat is a great solution.

Our boats are equipped with a retractable table for your picnic, drinks or snacks.
