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.

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?
