My brother-in-law and I booked the B.O.B. Advenure through the travel agents at our resort, the Park Royal. They gave us a 10% discount, costing about $68 USD per person, and a $7 USD port fee you pay at the marina. When we got there,...More

Would NEVER do this or recommend to anyone. Biggest problem is that everything is distorted underwater by the BOB helmet. Everything looks to be about 25% of actual size. It really plays havoc with your brain (and stomach). If you don't buy the CD and...More

This was a fun adventure. I definitely recommend this to those who are not claustrophobic and without fear of the water. The guides were so much fun and very patient with the entire group.

B.O.B. (Breathing Observation Bubble) is a scooter you ride on the bottom of the Caribbean! You are taken by boat into turquoise waters to a reef to explore. Our diving guide led us thru an undersea wonderland. Giant sea turtles, urchins, spider starfish, and a...More

I have to say I was skeptical when my husband wanted to do this "underwater scooter" thing. It ended up being AMAZING! We got to see some sea turtles up close and our guide even let us touch one. We were surrounded by colorful fish!...More

I'd done a helmet dive in Saint Thomas and was hoping the experience on the BOB would be similar. Not quite. The ride out in the speedboat was fantastic. Beautiful scenery, great boat pilot. Very very pleasant experience. Was thinking this was well worth the...More

Hi, it is actually recommendable to know how to swim to take the BOB as well. For safety reasons it's necessary to have some swimming ability. I would recommend the Sub See Explorer for non swimmers.

Good morning, this activity is offered by Aquaworld in Cancun, perhaps your question was aimed at another place, a hotel maybe?
