Bob (breathing Observation Bubble)

Duration: Half Day

bob (breathing observation bubble)

It’s a boat, it’s a train, it’s a...what is it? It is the BOB which stands for Breathing Observation Bubble. This ingenious device is like the combination of a scooter and a scuba tank. The individual’s head goes inside an air bubble which is constantly supplied with air from a scuba tank attached to the front body of the BOB; so there is no need for a regulator. However, the person will still encounter the same effects from increasing and decreasing pressure as if diving with a mask regulator. However the BOB will still equire much less physical exertion. The driver sits comfortably on a seat which is secured by ballast weight placed below. The BOB is powered by an electric motor and uses a rechargeable battery; which means it is very environment friendly and in no way damages the fabulous underwater ecosystem.

Ok, so you board a spacious vessel and cruise across to the reef for this BOB adventure. Trained and certified divers will be on hand to assist with the initial submergence and also to provide necessary guidance along the way. It’s easy to learn so no worries! Your head and shoulders will be enclosed in the roomy air bubble where you can breathe normally; yes, just as if you were on the surface. The headpiece is a clear acrylic dome that allows wonderful visibility so you can fully enjoy the beauty of the reef with no impairments. Cruise around the reef with this underwater scooter and be like a fish as you come up close and personal with the marine life.

The BOB tour does not require you to have a diver’s certificate or have experience snorkelling; even if you are not very good swimmer you are also welcome. It enables the driver to freely experience the many benefits of underwater diving without ability and skills presenting a major hindrance. Your journey of discovery on the underwater scooter is approximately 35 minutes and can reach depths of up to 24 feet.

This unique underwater experience is definitely something you should do at least once in your lifetime. It is a safe and incredible experience that will open your eyes to an amazing new world. The scenery is unbelievable with countless species of fish and an array of bright and varied colours in an underwater tropical paradise. And if you bring along your waterproof camera this experience will surely last longer as you’ll get to relive those moments captured by your snapshots!
