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!

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. I am an experienced scuba diver, with two kids just getting the hang of snorkeling and a wife who questions the sanity of ever voluntarily removing oneself from a natural air source. So I was excited... More

We joined this excursion through our cruise and our group of 10 all enjoyed it very much. The crew was professional and friendly, everything was explained thoroughly. There were 3 guides that dived with us while we're on the scooters and we felt safe and looked after throughout the whole time under water. It's very safe and nothing to be... More

We booked through our cruise company and man was it worth it. Really friendly crew, knowledgeable and all PADI certified. The experience itself while looking slightly daunting to start with, was extremely easy and felt safe. I have a PADI licence and have dived in the Maldives, Kenya and St Lucia but that meant nothing - it's a totally different... More

Very good. The Crew was proffesional and friendly. We were about 12 people, so there was scooter for everyone. Maybe too short time on the scooters. Safety was priority nr 1. I was hoping for å place with coral reef, so there I was disappointed. In the bottom line, I was very satisfied.

My brother-in-law and I got our Advanced Open Water certification with another dive shop on the island, and then had an opportunity to dive with Underwater Adventure.....wish we had gotten certified with them. Saw wrecks, turtles, sting rays, parrot fish, and unbelievable reefs. Also saw a reef shark and a nurse shark on our last two dives. The nurse shark... More

This is a great underwater experience. I don't know how to swim and the crew took very good care of me leading me by the hand. I don't quite recall the names of the crew except for the one they called Grumpy Bob. They were all excellent in explaining how everything worked. We were divided into two groups, so one... More
