Are you looking for a fun, adventurous way to explore the sea, or perhaps a unique vacation with beautiful sights? You found the right place! Located in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, BOSS Underwater Adventure provides a motorized underwater scooter custom built to explore the oceans wonders and mysteries in a safe, exciting way!

What is BOSS? B.O.S.S. is an acronym for Breathing Observation Submersible Scooter. It is a unique and exciting underwater motor scooter that lets you explore the vast ocean. Remember in school when you would turn a glass upside down in a sink of water and no water would enter the glass? It’s the same concept with the BOSS unit. As you descend, a seal is formed, the scuba tank supplies air to the bubble and you breathe normally.

This one-of-a-kind excursion will last approximately 3 ½ hours and begins when you board our 60' custom yacht for a scenic cruise out to the crystal clear BOSS site. The adventure continues when you board your personal BOSS unit. Our professional divers will escort you on a tour in small groups pointing out the wonders of the Caribbean Sea.

We also feature snorkeling tours, spacious sun decks for lounging, and covered areas for shade- so there's something for everyone! Have questions? Not to worry! Visit our F.A.Q page to view some of our customers Frequently Asked Questions. Or contact us personally at our Contact Page. Book with us today to start your very own underwater adventure!

This was an excursion we took while cruising the Caribbean. It ended up being the highlight of our trip. The shipwreck, the coral, and the numerous species of fish were really awesome. Everything about the BOSS Adventure was incredible, and we will definitely do it the next time we are in St. Thomas.

You have to try this. It's like combining snorkeling, scuba diving and jet skiing all at the same time. There's little effort to this activity but you get to see so much underwater life. It's a real treat for children. But if you are claustrophobic, this might be not for you.

To say we had a blast is such an understatement. We have scuba dived, gone snorkeling, jet skied, and parasailed; but none of these came close to our BOSS experience. The crew was knowledgable, fun and engaging. 2/3 of our time was snorkeling and the other 1/3 was on the BOSS apparatus. It is like an underwater moped in terms... More

One of the rare excursions in the Caribbean BOSS was a neat experience. Suitable for children and adults, the underwater scooters are very easy to use if one is experienced with snorkeling. If one has stimulation problems or children that do, I would not recommend. The crew is very attentive to safety and the environment. The waters of St Thomas... More

My son and I did this excursion and to be fair everyone on the boat said they loved it. It was truly a unique experience. Just know it is hard to do unless you are comfortable with scuba diving. It is easier than scuba diving but harder than snorkeling. I am glad I did it but I would not do... More

If you like snorkeling, scuba or anything to do in the water, this is what you are looking for. The ONLY complaint I have is that the ride isn't long enough.
