This review had nothing to do with the guide's on this trip. They were absolutely phenomenal with all of us especially me and my wife. The boat ride is 50 minutes to the area not 15 minutes like the site says. And the scooters themselves...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

It was an interesting first time experience, but the guides spent most of our underwater time placing us in grouping of our parties and taking our pictures in the B.O.B. units. Also the area of the reef they use was very bare of colorful growth;...More

Thanks 'Sh3ils', that's great to hear you enjoyed the BOB and saw so much sealife. We find this activity is so different from snorkeling or scuba that it makes it one of our most unique activities. Thanks for the recommendation! Kind regards

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?
