Years ago I had a bad experience with a dive in Mexico during a cruise excursion and have avoided diving ever since. My husband is an advanced diver and really wanted me to learn to dive with him and become certified. We were scheduled to stay in Roatan for the entire month of October. I began messaging with Adam, the... More

Loved the Boss scooter and adventure. Booked from NCL cruise The crew knew I was unsuccessful with snorkel in choppy waters and brought scooter to end of boat and helped me in. Forever grateful to my snorkel dude assisting me as I believe I was drowning with a float device.

All the staff were great. They were nice,funny, helpful, and really showed us a good time. Not only is going underwater on a scooter interesting and unique experience but what you see under the surface is amazing. Now, I will be honest, you see more of the vegetation and creatures when you snorkel than while you are on the scooter... More

My husband and I booked this through our NCL cruise. So glad we did this. It will more than likely be the closest I get to doing underwater scuba diving. The staff were very courteous, friendly and helpful.

Closest I will get to diving, loved the BOSS underwater scooter. We were able to see turtles and many fish. It was a fun and exciting experience.

Great open water dive training! Adam was incredibly patient, easy going and has tons of experience so he put me right at ease. The boat drivers are also a cool bunch of locals who know the reefs and are happy to stop and chat when you see them around town. The gear was in good shape and the facility has... More

This is a great excursion. We had an hour to snorkel before riding on the Boss Scooters which was a great experience. You are VERY close to the coral reef.. so close you have to be careful not to scratch your legs in certain areas while you are snorkeling. We saw all different kinds of fish along with a sea...

My friend and I went on this excursion in June 2016, the guide did not keep everyone together while snorkling so didn't get to see alot of fish and coral.

Sorry you didn't have a good experience on the BOSS tour. We don't have a guide for the snorkeling part of the tour but we do provide a safety diver for snorkelers in case someone requests help while in the water. The scooters are mechanical and do occasionally have some issues but the Divemasters do make every effort to make... More

I had the most awesome time hanging out with the BOSS staff. These guys were very thorough in explaining the rule and were very attentive underwater. i can swim, but as I entered the water i became a little panick. The diver was very calming. I ended up having the most amazing time. I will use them again.
