Ocean Connections has something for everyone! We welcome divers and non-divers alike aboard our custom-built 52-foot power catamaran for some fun in the sun. Divers will love our brand new Aqualung gear and exceptional valet service. We also host the only location on the island of Roatan for BOSS underwater motor scooters. BOSS (Breathing Observation Submersible Scooter) is designed to allow you to breathe normally while you drive underwater and experience the undersea world. Featured on the Discovery Channel, Travel Channel, and the Today Show, BOSS offers an exciting new experience for the whole group!

I am not a swimmer, but I snorkelled dor the first time with assistance from a crew member. It was agreat experience! I tried the B.O.S.S. for a couple of monutes but I was not comfortable enought to continue longer. I would try again if given the opportunity.

We booked the excursion through our cruise ship and was not disappointed. If you follow the instructions word for word you will have an awesome time! Would appreciate if the tour consisted of the divers pointing to and showing where the fish were but over all great experience and very relaxing!

This was hands down one of the best dive trips ever in my 30 years of diving. We have been to Roatan before but have never experienced this level of professionalism and customer service before.Even facing a hurricane that made them close for a couple of days, Bart, Lisa and their staff made us feel comfortable and made sure we...

Port Mahogany Bay, Isla Roatan; Our family of four adults unexperienced divers selected this excursion during our Cruise for the underwater adventure.

We booked this excursion on the Carnival Breeze on June 30, 2016. In the interest of transparency this is my husband's review. I have a phobia of drowning I'm struggling to overcome. I thought I could do it but couldn't quite overcome the panic.Devin and the divers were incredibly patient with me as were the other passengers. The diver stayed... More

My husband and I did this excursion while in Roatan. We did book through Royal Caribbean for this tour but that was fine. Our guides were excellent! Once we arrived at the dive shop we boarded a boat to take us out to the dive location. They thoroughly explained what to do/not to do once inside the BOSS. We were... More

I read reviews about people getting sick on this underwater adventure due to motion sickness. I was a little apprehensive because my daughter and granddaughter both get motion sickness in the car. Plus, my husband is claustrophobic; and I was worried about limited visibility for all of them. However, I booked the trip and tried to prepare everyone as best... More

Ocean Connections runs a professional, courteous , and well managed BOSS excursion. My family and I elected this shore excursion through our cruise ship. Kirby was especially patient and helpful during this excursion. That being said, I believe if I had been more informed of the details of this excursion I would not have chosen to take it. Being a...

Thank you for the honest review. By design the bubble on the BOSS unit does make things look smaller but affords a very large field of view. Being a certified diver you know we can't control what swims by but hope for the best with each trip. Snorkeling in and around the reef is normally teaming with activity. If you... More
