Bob stands for breathing observation bubble. A great way to observe the marine life that populates the Cancun reef site Chitales.
The helmet contains a breathing apparatus which allows you to stay underwater just like when scuba diving. Sit back and relax whilst we take you on a motor boat through the lagoon out to sea. Upon arrival to Chitales reef site you will board our main BOB boat where you receive complete instruction on how to ride the scooter.
Whilst on the surface of the water you mount the Bob and our instructors will gently lower you down (about 20 feet). You have 30 minutes to enjoy navigating your personal submarine in the clear waters of the Mexican Caribbean. It’s very common to come across sea turtles in this area not to mention an abundance of colorful tropical fish.
You then have the chance to enjoy a Cancun snorkel tour at Chitales reef, also included in your BOB package.
A great option to explore the underwater world from above and beneath the surface.
