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

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

The scenic ride out to the site for the BOB adventure is worth the price alone. Its probably a good idea to take the Dramamine. We did not, because we typically done get seasick, but going in the underwater bubble for 35 minutes can get...More

Thanks Anne, we're glad to hear you had a great time on the BOB. That's a good point about the Dramamine and perhaps we should warn people of that from the time of booking so thank you for making us aware. Kind regards

I would like to do the underwater scooters when I come down in April which I understand is only half pf the experience. I understand the second half consists of snorkeling but me and my significant other do not know how to swim? Is there an alternative for us for the 2nd half?

Response from Aquaworld1 | Property representative |
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.
Where do you go get drinks from if you are by the pool? I don't see a bar area where you can walk up get your own. Or tables to sit at if you don't want to be in loungers. ?????

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