Q: Will it be a problem to wear my contacts in the BOB?
A: No. As a matter of fact, you can wear your regular glasses if you want. Your head will be in an air bubble so it will be no different than if you were on land.
Q: How safe is this excursion?
A: Extremely safe. There are a number of reasons that make the BOB one of the safest things you can do as far as watersports. We keep the depth of the BOB’s between 8-10 feet. There is a tether (line) attached to the BOB which is attached to a buoy that floats on the surface. In this manner, you are never deeper than the average swimming pool. Also at this depth, the colors are brighter and there is little issue with pressure. You will be surrounded by certified divers who are always within 5-10 feet. Because of the unique design features of the BOB, it is impossible to tip over, allowing the fresh air in the bubble to escape. We give detailed instructions on the boat ride out that explains any and all safety measures.
Q: Does the motor in the BOB cause damage to the sea life?
A: Not at all. The BOB is propelled utilizing battery power, so no emissions, gases, or liquids are dispensed into the environment.
Q: Will there be pictures taken during my excursion that I can purchase?
A: Yes. You can purchase pictures in an assortment of sizes.
Note: We are not booking excursions at this time.
