Are you looking for a fun, adventurous way to explore the sea, or perhaps a unique vacation with beautiful sights? You found the right place! Located in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, BOSS Underwater Adventure provides a motorized underwater scooter custom built to explore the oceans wonders and mysteries in a safe, exciting way!

What is BOSS? B.O.S.S. is an acronym for Breathing Observation Submersible Scooter. It is a unique and exciting underwater motor scooter that lets you explore the vast ocean. Remember in school when you would turn a glass upside down in a sink of water and no water would enter the glass? It’s the same concept with the BOSS unit. As you descend, a seal is formed, the scuba tank supplies air to the bubble and you breathe normally.

This one-of-a-kind excursion will last approximately 3 ½ hours and begins when you board our 60' custom yacht for a scenic cruise out to the crystal clear BOSS site. The adventure continues when you board your personal BOSS unit. Our professional divers will escort you on a tour in small groups pointing out the wonders of the Caribbean Sea.

We also feature snorkeling tours, spacious sun decks for lounging, and covered areas for shade- so there's something for everyone! Have questions? Not to worry! Visit our F.A.Q page to view some of our customers Frequently Asked Questions. Or contact us personally at our Contact Page. Book with us today to start your very own underwater adventure!

We are the type that likes to try “do” something indicative of the area we are in and not always get sucked in by the big tourist attractions or common draws. With that said, we were intrigued when we were looking through the excursions offered via Carnival Cruises for our St. Thomas stop. There was something we hadn’t seen before... More

I booked this excursion through the NCL Epic months ago and had been looking forward to it as one of the highlights of our cruise. While I was incredibly excited about it, the entire experience was tainted by the crew's rude and mocking behavior. At several points in the initial safety instruction, the crew either belittled or mocked several people... More

Kristie, I'm so sorry to hear like you felt the crew was being rude at all during your excursion. Safety is our number one concern, and we don't want anyone to feel unprepared or unsafe. Our crews try to keep things light, so I apologize if that came across as flippant at times, and I hope you can understand that... More

Every time we come to St Thomas we do the BOSS. This was our third time. The crew are so professional and fun. The people who are nervous end up loving doing the scooters. The day we did the excursion our ship was 30 minutes late because of the wind. We ended up going to turtle cove and I got... More

This was my first time to the United States Virgin Islands. I was there on 1/25/2017 and I was from the Regal Princess.

The BOSS underwater adventure was incredible. We snorkeled before the ride, too. The captain threw fish food into the water, so there was a fun frenzy of fish. Here's the two-part "but": One of the crew was very abrupt and mean. Not how I expected to be treated as a paying customer. I was injured while waiting for the BOSS... More

This excursion was ok. The boat ride out to the Island is approx 45 minutes. You are then divided into groups and each group has a turn going underwater and using the scooter. I was a little worried about getting into the scooter but it was fairly easy. Once your in the scooter its a pretty neat experience. It was... More

I've known the owners for years and accepted an invitation to bring my family for this unique, well thought out and creative diving adventure.
