Leave the island behind and enjoy the tranquil waters, relaxing breeze and all of the privacy that you could want in sea of possibilities.
Let the sea be your highway and island be your guide when experiencing shore exploration and beach hopping with the use of a St. John dinghy rental. These small boats are ideal for traveling short distances and are an affordable way to enjoy all of the activities that this tropical paradise can offer. If you want to have a private picnic, dinghies are an ideal way to take some time away from the crowds and enjoy the Caribbean in your own way.
Although a dinghy is designed for staying near the shore, safety is of utmost importance at anytime you venture out into the waters. As such, a life jacket should be placed onboard for every passenger, along with a flashlight, emergency whistle, signal mirror and a sponge for soaking up any slight presence of water. These items should be placed in a waterproof bag and attached to the dinghy for easy access. Many companies who offer rentals make these items available at no additional cost, but it’s a good idea to have your own just in case.
Because St. John is so rich in available coves and cays, this island offers the perfect opportunity for exploration. Dinghy rentals allow you to see the area according to your own schedule and not a preset itinerary that you may experience with some boating rentals. Dinghies can guide you to some wonderful snorkeling spots and, best of all, the rates are very affordable. Most companies allow you to rent a dinghy for either a half-day or full-day and prices range from $125.00 to $250.00.
