About BOSS Underwater Adventure
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!

I would recommend this tour. It is a tiny bit awkward closing your eyes and going underwater to get in the helmet. You have to duck your head again to get out from under the helmet at the end of the tour, but completely worth...More
