Owner description: 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!

Absolutely worth every penny... My son and I went on this excursion from our cruise ship and had the time of our life...Where else can you ride an underwater scooter? Only in St. Thomas... the crew were very welcoming, super friendly and very talkative to everyone on the excursion...

Clear instructions were given on how to get in and operate your scooter...

My son and I loved this excursion... we were in the 3rd group so we had about 45 min to snorkel before we went riding, but that 45 min flew by because we saw so many different fish, coral, and parts of a sunken ship...

Once on the scooter it will take about maybe 30-35 min for your ride... the scooters are slow but so worth it because there is a lot to see under the water, and this helps not miss anything... they are easy to steer and makes for great laughs when you get caught in a circle or start going sideways... the divers are close by and help you out and bring you back to the group when needed... they took pictures of us with our own cameras and made sure that the fish were around when they did so (by bringing some tasty treats) we have some amazing pictures from that day...

Just for a few FYI... this is not an excursion for young children, they will not be able to fit on the scooters.. and... if you don't like water, or being under water, or cant swim, (we had all of these on our boat) no worries, the captain makes sure that the divers are aware and they are right next to you the whole time... if you forgot an underwater camera they sell them on the boat...

If you ever get this opportunity to try this excursion, you should... 2 thumbs up...

it was so 20000 Leagues Under the Sea but no squad... a lot of other sea life and tropical fish. I loved it. I had a great time and wish to go back.

This was an awesome experience and we would recommend it for anyone. We did this as a cruise ship excursion and they picked us up right at the dock where we came off the gangway. We rode the boat for about 30 minutes to be near a small island. The drawback here was that there were too many snorkle boats around. We snorkled for about 2/3's of the time which turned out really nice because we were able to follow a few turtles and take photos of both them and other fish. Our turn with the underwater scooters was amazing. Just be sure - as you are warned - not to freak out when you first get under the bubble. There are some claustrophobia moments at first but remember you are only 8 feet deep and it is so easy to get to the surface. It took a little bit to get used to the stearing but it gets better as you practice. The divers are very professional and careful to keep the group together and take the time to take photos - even making sure before you go in to know who you are with for group photos. I would love to spend a little more time on the scooters maybe 1/2 scooter and 1/2 snorkling. However, there is a lot more freedom when snorkling. We recommend this for everyone including those that are not very athletic amd timid. Lastly, this pleased our entire group from those that are certifid divers to those that had not snorkled before.

If you like to be insulted and listen to others be insulted this is for you. The Captain seems to think it is fun to insult and make fun of the Customers. The sights underwater are poor. The crew works hard and does well. Snacks are old crackers. Save your money and do something else. If you are ever in Nassua go on the adventure there with Stewarts Cove. They are professional, treat the customers with respect, and the views underwater are fantastic.
