For someone that has never snorkeled or dove before, this was amazing and makes me want to get my diving certification! It was so... easy, the crew was great and I just don't have enough words to describe how awesome it was. We saw squid, turtles and loads of colorful fish! I would do this over and over again! Thanks Taylor for a great day and super photos and videos! more

RIch/Kim

Absolutely fantastic experience. The guys that looked after us were fabulous. Would easily do it again.

Max

Incredible, awesome, different and the crew are OUTSTANDING! My 2nd time, and I brought along 23 people with me and again it was ...GREAT. All our first timers LOVED it. It was rough seas from a severe storm the two previous days, which affected seeing the crater on the sea floor, but lots of fish were out to play. Saw quite a few turtles too. All my guests said it was TERRIFIC and they had a ball!! The crew are always smiling, helpful and FUN!!! Thanks again guys!!! Danielle Tattam more

Danielle Tattam

Would definitely recommend this activity to do it was amazing the crew were fantastic

Kevin

I would recommend this adventure our photographer was amazing he got a school of dolphins too.There was an octopus right with my ...husband and the photographer there and turtles.Lots of beautiful fish. more

marcia

Staff was very helpful and friendly. Also let us snorkel while we waited. A++

Derek

The guys on the tour was so nice and made the little group feel connected. They were friendly and informative and the entire group... had a great time. I would definitely book again with them! more

Tanya H.

The boat crew and divers were friendly, patient, and knowledgeable. We definitely want to do again and bring our whole family. Exp...eriencing close encounters with sea turtles, sea stars, and numerous species of fish was thrilling. The crew has 7 scuba scooters with a diver to assist each scooter. The divers make sure each participant is safe, feels comfortable, and points out the aquatic life while also allowing independent discovery. While waiting your turn to scooter, we had a wonderful time snorkeling on our own. The waters are clear and beautiful and allow perfect visibility. For an extra fee you can get pictures and a video of your adventure. The diver captured some of my favorite vacation pictures! more

Donna Sue Youngblood

Great adventure underwater fun. Crew were friendly and efficient . Everything supplied and even if you are not a very competent sw...immer you could easily manage this activity as a fully qualified diver is in the water to assist at all times. Ideal alternative way to get under the water if you are incapable of scuba diving. Would definitely do it again The music on the boat was from the 70's and 80's which made the trip even more enjoyable as it was what I grew up listening too more

Trevor

BOB stands for Breathing Observation Bubble. Whoever invented this is such a genius. I really enjoy it because it gave me an und...erwater experience even though I don't really know how to swim and I don't even need to get my head wet. It's completely safe when you follow all the instruction correctly. It caused a bit of discomfort of pressure in the ears at first when it was decending. However, after you depressurized it, it's all good. This is an incredibly fun activity. more

Aloha

This was probably my favorite thing I did in Hawaii. I was scared at first and made them bring me up, but I tried again and had t...o close my eyes as I was being lowered in the water. It was awesome once you got under water and could see all the fish. We got to feed them bread. We even saw a huge sea turtle while we were under there. It was the most unique thing I had ever done and would love to do it again. It's definitely something everyone should try and do while they're there. more

Alberta

I can't swim, but the professional staffs make me feel very safe and I had an unique and wonderful experience underwater. I ...got to touch an Octopus!!!! Priceless!!! more

Hana

very very interesting, exciting experience. i saw turtle under the see. this is amazing.

Mr. Anonymous

Bob was the best thing we did on the entire island! The staff was EXTREMELY friendly and made sure everyone had fun!!

Mr. Anonymous

Spectacular way to view fish. Very relaxing & exciting at the same time. Felt very safe.

Rodgers Family

We always want to try subra driving but never do it, BOB can sucess our underwater experience with comfortable environment, we rea...lly enjoy it even if my wife afraid with fishes. If luckly, you can also snokeling with turtle like us. We recommend to try it to have a first experience under the water if you can't swim. more

Danny Tsang - HK

Of all the activities we did while in Hawaii, this was by far the best. The staff was very courteous and did everything the possi...bly could to make sure you had a good time. The ages of our kids were 13-19 and they were a great age to be able to enjoy the beauty of the underwater. I would recommend this to everyone that is old enough to take and follow the directions of the staff. more

The Grant Family

fantastic....loved it...beautiful, fun..amazing... everyone who sees my pictures...want to do this next time they are in Oahu.. St...aff was soooo nice and fun.. more

Ann

mM gf, sister and I went on the BOB after we saw how unique the pictures were on the website. We decided to give it a shot, and i...t was simply the hightlight of the trip ! The staff was friendly and they took amazing pictures of our whole group. They allowed us to stay longer than normal which was great and Donovan, the head honcho was a really relaxed guy and made us all feel at ease. YOU MUST GO !!!!!!!!! more

stanley kim

The experience of a lifetime and the staff was first rate

Scott

We had an awesome time. We are not the strongest swimmers, so this was a great experience. Do this! It~s so much fun!

Mr. Anonymous

Could not have been happier with the experience. Incredible scuba like experience - even for the non-swimmers. This is a definate... must do when you are in Honolulu area. Wonderful guides manuevered us around, gave us fish food and then dozen of incredible fish ate right out of our hand - it was great. Their shuttle picked us up at the Waikiki Sheraton, We watched a quick video, they explained what was going to happen and we all board a boat that took us out into a calm harbor. BOB is a Scooter with a bubble attached and was very very easy to get used to. more

First Visit to Hawaii

For those who don't know scuba diving but yet wish to experience the life under the sea, need to do this. Very nice experienc...e and enjoyed it. Try feeding the fish and you are surrounded by them ... various colors of fishes ... would recommend to those who wish to go underwater and don't know swimming like me. A bit discomfort to the ears at the beginning but gets fine soon. Good Instructors and the divers shall be with you throughout your stay in the water. Go for it!! more

Sunny

Experience was TRULY AMAZING. I can't swim and have a phobia of being underwater in general but the BOB gave me the opportuni...ty to sit on a scooter and enjoy the wonderful creation that exist under the Pacific Ocean. Price was very reasonable and the instructors were awesome! more

Mr. Waters

Really neat experience! The view down below was awesome and the crew was helpful and fun. My only complaint was that it didn...9;t last long enough - we could have stayed down all day! more

Mike E.

A very unique way to experience the ocean and its inhabitants. My boyfriend doesn't know how to swim and was quiet scared. Bu...t the staff was very helpful and he overcame his fears. There was also time for snorkling, which was great. A definitely must do. Recommendable for everyone. more

Maj Juul

This was the most memorable moment for us. The chance to go underwater for people that can not swim was great. The water was so ...clear and the fish and turtles just swim up to you. They were so colorful. They were eating out of our hands. The crew was great and they took very good photos. I would love to do this one again. Thanks more

Steven Quade

I would recommend this to anyone who has not tried scuba diving. My friend and I had a good time and the staff made us feel at eas...e. more

T Hammond

The crew was excellent. They encouraged without pushing past your comfort zone.

Mr. Anonymous

This was a great experience. My husband and I enjoyed the activity and the knowledgeable staff.

Donna Rudolph

This was our first experience with "BOB" and it was amazing! Especially for me as I'm a bit paranoid with being und...erwater and don't like water in my face and can't even handle snorkeling. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to handle it but after the initial nervousness of being submerged, I was able to see all the wonderful sites of colorful fish and sea turtles and my hair didn't even get wet!!! It was amazing! more

Wanda and Keith

This was one of the best activities one could imagine to do..well worth the cost..everyone enjoyed themselves...we could snorkle o...r use the "BOB"...staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. A must do activity for everyone...even a novice can do it...for all ages. My friend who isn't a great swimmer and never snorkled before enjoyed himself immensly...excellent !!! more

R. Sharpe

The most unique and different type of experience I have ever encountered. So easy to participate, no special skills or training r...equired made it really easy to enjoy oneself. Completely forgot that I wasn't breathing with an air tank...loved the huge views I had with the Bubble Head. Would definitely do this again!!! more

Hope C Caton

I wanted to surprise my teenage nieces, so I decided to take them on those neat underwater scooters, and they had a blast. They ar...e 15 years old and I thought they would be bored but they were not. They were so excited!!! The scooters were pretty easy to get used to, and my nieces had an easy time in the water. They especially liked the idea that your hair doesn't get wet while in the bubble. We didn't see any big reef formations or turtles, but we did see a lot of small fish. I would recommend taking some motion sickness pills before boarding though, it did get a little rocky out there on the boat. Staff was very friendly and attentive towards us, my nieces thought the crew were very good looking and wanted me to point this out. My nieces were hungry afterwards and this activity is in a very good location. A lot of places in walking distance to get some lunch since we all worked up an appetite. OH AND FREE PARKING if you opt to drive out instead of taking their transportatio more

Greatest Auntie ever~!

It was soo much fun! My sister and i enjoyed it.. Twas really unforgettable experience..

Abby

Fun & exciting experience under the sea in safe. Greatest activity !!

Jungmin Kim

I like it, it is amazing You should try it You well like it also

malek

It was well worth the money. The crew was great and friendly. Got a disc of about 30 photos for $30. Would do again

Molly S

Great experience over all. Great staff. Nice photos to take home. Highly recomended

lima

Can't wait to go back to do it again. The family loved it.

Mr. Anonymous

I took a couple of my students out there and it was amazing. The entire crew were professional and patient. It was the first tim...e for some of the participants and some of them couldn't swim, but the divers were with us the entire time during the B.O.B. and assisting us while we snorkeled. If you get a chance, you have to check these guys out. more

Kyle

Great experience. I was a nervous at first, but when I was under the water, I had a wonder experience.

carlisle hall

Very professionally run organisation don't get put off by the safety demo it is very easy and super enjoyable, would definetl...y recommend more

Paul

What a fantastic time my daughter and I had snuba diving, all three guys were just great and so informative, this was the best par...t of our trip. more

Heather

I was nervous at first but the staff made it easy to get into the BOB. The divers were excellent and guided me at first and then ...sent me on my way. I've done other excursions and saw more fish and turtles on this trip. The pictures turned out very professional. I have told my daughter and her fiancé to definitely do this next month on their visit. more

Marvel

The best kick ass time in Hawaii, the divers were very attentive. Seeing the ocean from underneath is awesome for this non-swimmer....Younger kids could enjoy this. Bring cash for the pictures as credit cards not accepted. more

cheryl

Fantastic experience, was great for me because i cant swim but have always wanted to see deep under water! Saw some amazing fish! ...Loved the free time snorkelling after the bobs! Got really close to a beautiful turtle! Staff were very friendly and helpful! more

Alic85

My favorite experience while in Hawaii. You get a boat ride, amazing scenery, great staff, its fun, and you also snorkel. They als...o take lots of pics for you ! Highly recommended. Dont miss out! more

Hussein

We had such an awesome time under the water and we could wear our glasses so we could really see the fish clearly!

mimi

Nice time and wonderful people from start to finish. Unique and fun experience evan for seniors such as myself. My older brother... and I had a great time. more

Phil Campbell

I usually don't do reviews because there wasn't enough "wow" or it's special, but not worth my time to... "write" about it: This activity is exceptionally the case for shouting about. Think about how in the world could you go underwater, be AMONG fish, not learn the intricacies of diving, not wear heavy equipment on your back (even if weight is not an issue underwater), or hold your breath for an extended period of time, and still be able to wear your personal prescription glasses. This is a great activity to partake in especially for those curious about underwater activities. When you get underwater on these vehicles, a personal diver will be assigned to you to make certain that you're doing OK and to mitigate any problems that may arise---even if you decide to cancel the activity. The hosts were all professional and serious about instructing the group on what to expect while in the water, and I felt comfortable and appreciatead their attention to safety. We rode out to the edge of this bay in the south eastern part of Oahu and proceeded with the adventure in the BOBs plus snorkeling around the boat that brought us out there. One of the divers had a camera to take pictures while we were underwater so there will be pictorial memories to look back at and thoughts about what to do in the future to optimize my excursions beneath the ocean. This activity is great!I was underwater for the very first time in my life, and I'm back to write about how great a time I had! If diving is not for you, try this for your shorter "bucket" list! more

Will

The crew/divers were excellent and professional and friendly as was the Skipper. We had an awesome time, saw beautiful marine lif...e and lots of turtles. A great day!! Thanks again guys!! more

Danielle Tattam

You must do this!!! Most fun crazy safe experience we have ever done! So happy we did it here in Hawaii and especially with all th...e kind people here! more

Julieta Reyna

Amazing experience, this company did a great job.

Lima

We had a great time. The staff was friendly, informative and helped settled the nerves of those that needed it. We were able to se...e sea turtles which was amazing. We saw, touched and fed the tropical fish. They took pictures of us underwater as well which will become a nice memory keepsake. A must do when visiting the island of O'ahu and so worth the money that we spent. more

Tanya Rael

Such a wonderful crew! They were so nice. My grandchildren, from 17 to 26, loved the experience and their patience with my inabil...ity to get my ears cleared, yet able to get my picture underwater, was awesome! Thanks to a really wonderful crew! Had a great time! Oh, yeah, I can't swim not one stroke and I wasn't afraid, just wish my ears had cooperated! more

michele

We've been to Oahu a couples of times and have always done different excursions. By far BOB's underwater scooter was the... best one we have ever done! Everything from the pick to the drop off to our hotel was a great experience! Everyone on their team was extremely courteous and friendly. The water scooter itself was such an amazing experience. It was very easy and comfortable to ride the scooters. To be that comfortable and see the beauty of the underwater life was breathe taking. I high recommend not only this excursion but this company of you are looking for a lifetime of amazing memories! more

Wee T.

Both my husband and 10 year old daughter thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Although I struggled with motion-sickness (while waiting for... our turn to go down), once I was underwater, what an amazing experience that was!! My 10-year old who had to stand (she is just little above 4 feet) didn't mind that at all. She really enjoyed the experience, and begged us to go back again. So we will do this again when we visit Oahu next time. Not far from the shore, but the nature was just magnificent. The way nature and animals peacefully coexist with humans just catalyzed our Hawaii experience, and this adventure was well worth the cost! The staff was also very professional, and knowledgeable. Only if they cautioned us about motion sickness earlier on ;-) more

Jane Kelly

This was great!!! 1st class all the way!!! I recommend these guys hand down!!!

Kerri

This was an incredible experience. This had to have been my favorite excursion that I have ever done in Hawaii. The staff was gr...eat and being able to purchase the video and pictures that you can watch over and over was wonderful. This is definitely one activity that I would do again. more

Pat Weil

This is amazing experience, Staff was so nice and fun. Recommendable for everyone I would love to do this one again!!

Mon

Had an awesome adventure! Would highly recommend this excursion!

Landlocked in CO

The staff were awesome, casual enough so that everyone felt at ease but professional enough that we both felt safe, heaps of fun, ...would recommend to everyone. more

SarahNZ

Since you're scootering around in a bay, you won't have the beauty of any coral reefs but bread feeding will attract the... fish and the experience as a whole is alot of fun. You can snorkel around and if you have an underwater camera like I did, you can take some really fun pictures. There are scuba diving lessons going on in the area as well as the water jet pack session. The captain and the diving crew were fun and helpful. Your safety is the #1 thing on their minds. The water was warm enough and even though we were on a boat with no English speaking people, we all had a good time. more

BHM104

We changed our whole itinerary just to go and do the sea trek adventure and we were not disappointed. It was one of the most amaz...ing things we have ever done. The crew was friendly, experienced and very professional. They made you feel relaxed which allows you to enjoy. Great time! Thank you. more

Carlos and Brenda

My husband and I went out on 9/29/15 ...we have done zip lining. ..a helicopter ride...my husband went parasailing. ...but nothing... even slightly compared to the amazing adventure at bobs underwater scooter adventure . I am a big scarey cat while my husband is a dare devil...we both agree this was the best! Not scary except for the unease at first of not knowing what it will be like. Then there you are breathing regularly at the bottom of the ocean! We played with turtles hundred of fish...octopus (the handlerers... that are in scuba gear and accompany you and video your visit under the sea...found the octopus and played with them for us to see and touch) this is not a controlled area it is a spot they choose to stop the boat...so it's all just natural nature! I want to bring my whole family to Hawaii just to come here! GO! DON'T CONSIDER NOT DOING THIS! more

Mrs. and Mrs.Pearson

We spent two years researching our trip and when we saw this tour we were very intrigued. It was everything we had hoped for and m...ore. The divers were friendly and accomodating we were never rushed. Fish and turtles are so close you can touch them great photo opportunities. Highly recommend more

Frank & Tara Connell

It is a great experience doing the Underwater scooter. The guides were excellent making sure we are comfortable right from the beg...inning. It was a 1 to 1 guided adventure. The guides captured excellent pictures and videos of us individually and as as a couple with the beautiful fishes!. The plus thing is they do have all the snorkeling gear available for free so once you are done or you decide when your turn is you can do snorkeling. more

KrisG

This is EXCELLENT!!! When my brother went back to the hotel he kept raving about it.....how excellent his experience was...and ho...w very supportive the divers were. AWESOME!!! more

Danny

We are a young couple, 21 & 20! The staff were the friendliest people we have come across in Hawaii! The experience itself was... worth every cent! Fish came right up to us, you can even touch them! Highly recommend! more

Laura

Holy cow, if you can afford this, DO IT! Up close and personal with the fishes--you can pet them and everything. There is a food... thingey attached to each sub scooter, so that's why they are coming right up to you, it's awesome. Lots of turtles in the water too--we had one swim right next to us! Afterward, when on the boat, several others swam close around us. The divers were all great guys to work with. Very good at their job, and very nice to everyone. A great crew. They also take photos and video of you with the sea life while you are down there--you can purchase these afterward. Plan on it--$50 for both photos and video. They are great, and you can't get as good with your own camera (at least I don't see how you would). I also preferred this to snorkeling, because of being deeper in the water, the view is much different, yet there are no worries about breathing or anything--it's the awesomeness of being in a bubble! Absolutely fantastic adventure. Highly recommend. more

Jon and Jeanne

Absolutely awesome experience!!!! Crew were super nice and helpful!!

Connie

We found this because I cannot scuba or snorkel and were pleasantly surprised! We had a good time and an excellent group of guides... helping us along. I was nervous but they put my mind at ease and I greatly enjoyed seeing all the fish and the sea turtles! They even had snacks for us on the boat. Thanks for giving me an experience thought I would never get to have. Would definitely recommend! more

My husband and I really enjoyed this underwater adventure. I don't know how to swim well, so I never go snorkeling or scuba d...iving and miss all the underwater fun. This activity allowed us to see the underwater world, feed fish in their natural habitat, spy on turtles and spend time together doing something fun and different. If you're prone to motion sickness, definitely take something for that before going because some people seemed a little sea sick. This activity impressed both of us. The divers were very helpful and took great photos. Thank you to the whole crew! more

Zhanna and Nick

We did this as part of our anniversary week in Oahu and all I can say is if you are "thinking" of doing this, stop think...ing and just DO IT! It's an experience you will never forget and the fact that we got to pet and swim along a sea turtle in the ocean is simply awesome!! The crew was amazing, the water was warm and it's something we'll never forget, the crew made this a very memorable experience. more

Daniel Haquet

I'd do this again in a heartbeat. Worth every penny. Personal attention so that I got maximum experience as guides helped u...s see the turtles when they came around and did everything possible to draw the fish to us. You could tell the crew was experienced and competent. more

First time to Hawaii I picked this tour. What an awesome experience. Friendly staff and pickup/drop off made it easy. Will do it a...gain with the family. more

Alice

great time and great fun. one of the best things to do in hawaii. saw sea turtles and even was allowed to hold an octopus. the wo...rkers had our safety in mind the entire time. great fun. a must do on hawaii. thanks for the memories. more

dennis and chris

This was one of the most amazing things I have ever done… it's a must bucket list item. It is like you are transported to ano...ther world and underwater world and I got to see fish, turtles, sting rays - just amazing - you won't regret it. Thanks to the whole team, they made is such a fun experience. more

Helena

My wife and I wanted to do something other than snorkelling and this adventure gave us more than what we asked more, plus a lifeti...me of memories in the form of great photos and a video. Thank you BOB's aventure. more

John

Did bobs scooters was fantastic could have booked another day if we weren't leaving the next day great clear water

Tracey

First I was really afraid because I can barely float, I don't swimming if is not at the pool and going short distance. But I ...decided to have a new experience as a solo traveler in Hawaii as my first visit. The crew were just amazing, the lady at office received me with a big smile and was very friendly. The rest of the crew really made me feels good and my fears went away. When we got to the spot in the sea the first animal I saw was a turtle, and was an amazing feeling. While the crew organizing every scooter the only thing in my mind was "oh please I don't want to be the first one", after the captain told me I will be the next, I ended up being the third person going under. Words can not explain, you really need to go and have this experience where you can actually be close and touch animals under the sea. I was lucky enough to see turtles, different kind of fish and even an octopus that got stuck on my big helmet for my pictures and video. By the end of the day I got my photos and video, I've played my video and couldn't believe that the woman was me, they really did a good job, from the beginning to the end I really recommend BOB's Adventure underwater scooter, specially if you don't swim at all, like me. PS: I took the bus to get there from downtown, the commute was really easy and you will get so see more. more

Dilu Braga

I enjoyed this activity with my wife. I remember fantastic views under the sea, there were beautiful fishes and turtle. We did ...snorkel during waiting for undersea bicycling. Thank you for giving us great memory. more

Jongmin Lee

Great experience awesome photographer reasonable price !!!! It was fun tons of turtles and fish ..

Lymarie

This was so fun. The boat trip and scooter ride were made so great by the 3 divers and the captain. The treated us all so well .......my mother who is 86 accompanied us and she had a great time...her first trip to HI. I cannot express to you how much fun this was. Now we are reliving this with friends and family via the DVD and pictures. I am ready to go again. more

Momathan

Had a great time! As others have said, lots of wait time but you can spend it sunning or snorkeling. We had read the other revi...ews and knew to take Dramamine. Many others had not and felt sick. We felt great and would recommend this activity. Bought the photo video combo. Great work - only disappointment was we were missing solo wife pics. Still a great value. more

HI Convert

Pick up from hotel was great! Scooter ride was really fun and you get up close to the fish!

Grace & Bethany

The best adventure I had it was simply awesome ..

Lymarie

Wauw, this was so nice, beautiful "dive" space on scooter, beautiful fish. My husband (non swimmer) even went with me an...d very proud of him that he did it :) more

Lianne & Ron

I traveled to Hawaii with my aunty and this was on top of our to do list and it didnt dissapoint! We had a fantastic time and said... when we go back we would definitely do it again! Beautiful ocean and lovely staff, we saw fish and turtles in their natural habitat....it was so serene thankyou to the friendly staff that ensures our safety and made sure we had a fantastic experience. Mohalo and Aloha more

Brie & Kerri Hudson

This was so fun. To top it off at the end we got to see 30+ dolphin.

Tonya

Such an incredible adventure! Definitely worth the money spent!

Gina

This is a must do in Honolulu! The service was great. They provided pick up and drop off service which really helped. Once you rea...ch their office the staff explains the process in a very simplified way. On board the boat there were refreshments and the staff was very friendly :) more

NJP

This was totally awesome and everyone should do it if they get the chance. It was so great because you have a chance to actually l...ook around without worrying about snorkel equipment!!! For me that's a big deal. So much fun!! I highly recommend doing this. more

C Hamblin

Some were apprehensive about diving under the helmet to get into it but after that it's amazing as you get to see fishes and ...even turtles up close. You also get a fish food sponge to lure scads of fishes to you - just be careful to keep your fingers out of the way, or you may get a nibble! The safety divers guide your scooter and show you where to go (and some take video for sale later). The only possible discomfort may be if you don't equalize the pressure as you dive or ascend - this can be done several ways (such as swallowing or yawning - I couldn't get the "pinch nose and blow" method to work). Otherwise it's a blast. You also get to hang around a bit - on the boat or swimming or snorkeling - while the other groups are on the scooters. more

Cliff

What a GREAT time! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Great way to start my last day of vacation. Highly recommended to do!

Bonnie

The highlight of our trip. The crew was amazing! The scooters and all the fish were amazing. Humming around the ocean with the fam...ily... once in a lifetime opportunity. Thanks everyone! more

John

Although we had been snorkeling before this underwater scooter adventure was very unique. It was so much fun we plan to do this ag...ain. We have already recommended this to all our friends. more

thelostkey

Taken on a boat in an incredible blue Pacific ocean bay, after a few minutes the crew makes you feel like chilling with humor and ...smiles. Then time for the scooter, they make sure you'll see the Marine life from up close, and while you're on the boat, they provide gear to scuba dive with the people in the scooters, food and drinks on the bridge, and pictures at the end. A must do! more

Max

Great underwater activity, especially for beginners in scuba diving. Extremely easy to do it, extremely awesome while doing it. Fo...r experienced guys to scuba diving, this might be boring. For the rest of us this is very cool!! The staff is taking photos of you while being underwater for keeping and sharing these memories forever. Scuba diving is a must to do thing in Hawaii!! more

Chris

Our adventure began with introductions of the captain and his awesome crew. They made sure we knew all the safety procedures and ...explained all of the gear. We arrived to the spot and the crew jumped into their gear and were ready to go. We had time before our turn so we went snorkeling. The water was so clear! I spotted a turtle right away. We finished snorkeling and then saw another turtle on top of the water. Now it was our turn to go below on the snooba scooter. Each scooter was assigned their own diver. My diver communicated with me the whole time. When it came time to dive, he made sure I knew how to clear the pressure in my ears. Then we shook a metal mesh bag with bread balls in it and it was like we had rung a dinner bell for the fish! They flocked to us and nibbled the bread and sometimes your fingers! It was breathtaking and so exciting! I couldn't stop smiling! The photographer got some wonderful shots of us and the price was so reasonable. As our adventure came to an end, we were heading to the surface when a juvenile turtle came swimming by. I would highly recommend this adventure to everyone. Definitely one not to be missed! more

Sandy Jamison

Very well organized. The crew are fantastic and although we were a little nervous about doing the activity - we needn't have... been the crew are there with you every step of the way. The water is so blue you can see all the way to the bottom. Have recommended this to heaps of our friends. more

Running Girl

Our group of four "seniors" wanted to experience this unique water activity during our visit to Oahu. The underwater sco...oter adventure exceeded our expectations. The entire team from Bob's was very helpful to all of us onboard. They did a great job of communicating to not only those of us from the U.S. but were able to converse with the customers who were from Japan and needed communications in their native language. We had been given appropriate safety briefings before heading out to the dive site. The outdoor temperature in mid October was in the mid 80s so not uncomfortable. The water temperature was a reasonable 75+ but we adapted to it as soon as we got into the water on the scooters. The divers gave us appropriate underwater instructions to get us going and to set up the underwater photos for each person. We did have unusual trade winds that caused some bouncing and rolling in the boat but once in the water on the scooter or when snorkeling, it was mitigated. The water was clear and we had a variety of fish that swarmed around us as they were feeding on the food that the divers attached to the scooters. A unique feeling to have all of these colorful fish surrounding you in their environment. We also had the opportunity to see a number of sea turtles both under water and coming to the surface. It would have been great to have had more time actually underwater but we only could accommodate 2 - 3 people underwater at one time. It probably would have been more enjoyable from the customer perspective with a few less onboard the boat. Our group did take the opportunity to do some snorkeling after we completed our time on the underwater scooters. All in all a great time to remember and yes we did buy the photos especially for the video that was offered as well. We have not been able to access our photos yet as we are still on vacation and will need to do so when we get home. Hopefully, they will be as delightful to watch as what we experienced more

Sandra McCarthy

The crew were so professional and nice. They kept us all feel safe. Our kids had a blast! Definitely recommends.

Sherwin

Staff attentive and superbly caring, trained. Lots of fish, sea turtles right in front of you. Will repeat next time for sure.

Caryq

It was my first time to try this & I really enjoyed it, the beach we went, fishes, turtle :). Guides were so supportive, kind,... heroes :) Thank you all more

Dona

As a qualified PADI, I found this activity to be a great alternative to full on scuba diving. With the submarine scooter you are a...ble to sit back and enjoy the amazing underwater world. The Bobs team were very organised and made the whole experience enjoyable and welcoming. I would highly recommend this to those afraid of discovery scuba diving. The team also take great pictures and videos for you. more

Lewis W

The best experience ever! The crew were very professional and nice and I don’t swim but they were so kind in helping me and guidin...g me through this amazing experience! In addition they gave complimentary equipment that you can borrow to snorkel freely! If you want an amazing adventure, this is one of them! more

Mitch23

What a great crew, we had so much fun and the crew was just fabulous, can't say enough about them.

Donna

Had a ton of fun at Bobs underwater scooter adventure. The crew was funny and friendly and made the trip safe and memorable. I wou...ld recommend this to anyone coming to Oahu who loves tropical fish. I got to hold a giant sea star while the guide took my picture. It was awesome. more

M. Maddon

First, allow me to emphasize just how professional and engaged the divers, driver and the captain was on this experience. Seriousl...y these guys were fantastic .. they were always attentive, showed understanding and you felt in very capable hands the whole time. This aspect was important to my wife as she had some very serious apprehensions about doing this ..but being a dutiful husband I badgered her until she agreed :-) .. took a few weeks. The pre-trip meeting answered any questions we had and explained the workings of the submersible in terms of engaging the motor .. but nothing in regards to steering the vessel which i thought interesting. We had a big group of approx 20 people so we just all fitted on the small boat. The seas were a little rough so a few people got a little woozy but nothing too bad. My wife and I were one of the first to try out the scooters and the process to get in them was simple and effective .. no diving underwater to get in them .. this was a relief to my wife. We were in the water almost immediately and already could see fish in the distance. So we were very excited ! Here is where i was a little disappointed .. we had been trained to use foot pedals to engage the motor for the propellor but mine seemed to be a much older model and had the button on the steering column. No big deal i guess except i had an underwater camera with me and hence could not use it while the motor was engaged, which is approx 80% of the time. Consequently i was unable to take many photos .. disappointed. I now understood why we were not taught the steering of the submersible ..you don't steer it ..there is a diver that holds onto 2 of the vessels the whole time and steers it. This was disappointing as i had no control on where to go. In summary this was a FANTASTIC experience and again i want to emphasize how good the divers and crew were .. BUT it felt more like an amusement park ride than what the marketing suggests. Thanks guys more

MerlinsEgo

This is great for people who have never scuba dived before. It is a great initial experience to being under the water. Had lots ...of fun! more

bobby

Since I am not a scuba diver and the most snorkeling I have done was in my pool I would have to say this was a great experience. ...I took my three children ages 17,16, and 13. They had a wonderful time. The staff was nice. Having the fish each out of our hands was awesome. We even saw a huge turtle. Either before or after you go in the BOB you can snorkel around the boat. This was cool too. I wish I could have taken my underwater camera but they take great pictures with their camera for you. Of course there is charge to get a disc of the photos. The one down side is when we got home we were given the wrong photos. So be sure to ask them to double check before you leave. They are sending me the right one in the mail. Still overall this is a great experience for those who can't scuba dive yet. more

Joshua

This was a unique experience and is a great way to get underwater if you are afraid to scuba dive or want to try something other t...han skorkel. The only downside was the service was a bit below par compared with some of the other services we were getting. They were not rude, but definitely not that friendly. They acted like they didn't want to be there and seemed to rush everything. The exception is the young man, who appears to be Hawaiian. He took interest and appeared to enjoy his job. more

Mr. Anonymous

You don't even get your hair wet, and fish swim right up to you and pick at the bread in your hand. You breathe normally. Y...ou can see them perfectly clearly and they come to you. This was really fun. Then you can snorkel around the boat while the other people take their turns, in couples, riding the little underwater scooters. Don't do this if you're prone to seasickness. But if you don't want the hassle of SCUBA, this is the best way to be underwater with the bright little fish. more

Snickerpoodle

Overall my sister and I had a good time. I was very disappointed with the cost of the photos. Even when the instructor tried... to barter with me and cut the cost in half, it was still an outrageous price for a Cd that cost pennies to produce. If they were actual photos the price is still rediculous. more

BigWillie

I attended with my two neices, who are very afraid of water. The BOB offered them the opportunity to experience the ocean and its... inhabitants without knowing how to swim. They were truly overjoyed with their experience under water. We were all a bit concerned, at first, with the staff who didn't interact well with customers but once everyone experienced the BOB they began to interact more with customers. more

Mr. Anonymous

I'm not comfortable with normal scuba gear, so this was a good way to be able to get under the water and see the marine life ...off Hawaii. The scooters were not fast, but that is due to safety. Everyone gets a diver that looks after them and can go under with their partner/friend. I always felt I was in good hands. The experience lasted 20 minutes, which is not much. But to allow several people to go down without using several days, one doesn't have a choice. One would always want more time with something that is enjoyable. A bit pricey, but safety costs, and the value was everything considered, not bad. more

Lars D

It was fun with an F. Everyone was super nice and efficient. The only draw back was that they told me we would be back in waikiki... by 1230..1 but we didn't get back til 130. We were rushed to our next event. more

namie

Excellent Experience even thought I couldn't enjoy it due to pressure in my ears. However I heard it was an excellent experi...ence from my husband. more

Stacey Franklin

It's nice experience especially for those who haven't tried diving. The stuff was very friendly and helpful. Just you ne...ed to know that you don't have any control on the scooter. You have to set and enjoy! more

Mah

Good time was had by all. If you don't have good sea legs, the captain may allow you to snorkel around the boat weather permi...tting. Be prepared to wait for others to have their turn, but you can see the fish whilst waiting as they are used to come up for feeding. The team were friendly and well organised (expect to tip at the end), good activity, although it doesn't top scuba diving. more

Dave

Our family enjoyed the entire crew and had a fantastic time.

Canales Family

Staff was nice and divers made everything feel very safe. Very cool experience to have fish eating out of your hands.

Jeff

Enjoyed the crew and the experience. We were pushed in directions instead of us controlling the scooters and we would have liked ...to move it on our own. The experience was wonderful and we saw many fish and sea turtles. Thanks for a great trip more

Barry

My nephew & I took this adventure and enjoyed it very much. My nephew said that he would like to do it again next time he goe...s to Hawaii. more

R. J. Ferguson

Was lots of fun - the divers/guides with us were great. Only negative was that it was a little choppy on the day and my husband en...ded up getting seasick while waiting for others to complete their turn. This though ended up a positive as it helped with bringing more fish closer to the boat! Next time we would be more prepared and take seasick tablets beforehand. Also I had tried scuba diving in the past and had problems "equalizing", thus could not move far from the diving platform. The underwater scooter experience has helped me overcome my previous fears of underwater adventures. An awesome time was had despite the seasickness. more

D & J

You are super close to the fishes under the water and you can see a lot of variety of them and I even saw 4 turtles from a close d...istance. The staff are very friendly and gives you good guidance on every step of the activity. The only drawback is the time underwater was only 15 minutes and when you are which flew by very quickly. Note: You don't need to know how to swim to do this activity. more

Phanesh

Originally I was very scared as I don't like to put my head under the water. I signed up just because my grown up daughter wa...nted to try that. I was a bit out of breath at the beginning as I dived in to the helmet, but soon as I calmed down, it was incredible. I was even able to touch the gorgeous big turtle. But I was able to have this great experience only thanks to my assigned diver, who directed me so well. So thank you ever so much xx more

Jindriska

I had to give this a 3 star rating to get it to post. My earlier one star rating wouldn't post and my comments were sent to ...the tour operator for comment. Each issue that I raised the company flat out lied about. As indicated in a prior review, it was disappointing that the scooters had to be moved around by the divers, they are not in working order to be moved under their own power. It looked like they were broken or missing engine parts. I loved the concept, the crew was fantastic and I would have said it was OK, but given that the event is not as advertised and that Bob's Underwater Scooter Adventure management flat out lied I would then question the safety of the event. False advertising. One star. more

allenk

Had a good time. Dissapointed that the scooter had to be moved around with a diver assisting.

Lori

Wasn't what I expected. It was pretty underwater but you don't maneuver the scooter yourself. It's not motorized or... anything. The divers maneuver you by hand. But it was still a memorable experience. more

Laura

You get a quick instruction on how to get in and get out of the scooter, and they teach you important hand signals. I don't k...now how to swim and never been underwater so I was extremely nervous. But everyone gets their own instructor so if you're freaking out, they're right there to help you. These guys were nice and never push you past your own comfort zone. I actually freaked out going underwater so my instructor brought me back up for a minute, let me calm down and tried it again. I got to see fish and even a few sea turtles swim by it was awesome! My main complaint is that the guy taking pictures didn't catch any of this. He didn't take pictures until AFTER the fish swam by. So majority of my pictures that I paid $45 for are just of me in the water with no fish in it. What a waste!! Now this is a warning for those of you who get motion sickness: I took Dramamine an hour before going out to sea and let me tell you that didn't work. While waiting for other people to have their turn, the boat was moving like crazy and I got seasick. Two other people actually got sick as well. Overall this was a fun activity and I like that they let you snorkel while waiting for others to have their turn. However, I don't recommend this activity if you are prone to motion sickness. Tip: Bring your own underwater camera! more

May

First of all crew was great! Our driver and diver Taylor went out of his way to be helpful . The experience was average . Not m...uch time on actual scooter. A lot of time sitting on boat then back at shop waiting to be driven back while the video and pictures we being pushed. Wouldn't do it again but not unhappy that I did it once. more

Kevin M.

Workers there need better customer service the experience was amazing just the workers there could be more friendly. The driver wa...s the only one with a great attitude. more

Luis garcia

Everyone on the boat was sea sick and was vomiting the whole time. The sub scooter was fun, but there are lots of pressure. If you... get claustrophobic or sea sick easily I don't recommend this active. We got to see a lot of fishes. The crew member on the other hand are no really nice. more

Nancy

Divers friendly but little instruction or guidance given. Lot of waiting around and too many people on boat for number of scooters... and divers, reduce sizes for more enjoyable experience. Also suggest providing one digital photo in price of ticket at least as waste if going to effort of taking them if not emailing to parties. Expect to wait around both at office, on shuttle and boat. more

Anony

Even though I spent the whole morning for this activity, I just rode the underwater scooter for 15 min only. Furthermore, I couldn...'t even enjoy with my wife and son at the same time. So embarrassed and annoyed much. I admit the riding itself is exciting activity but their program was not that sophisticated. I was so much disappointed. more

Hugh

I think it would have been amazing... but will not know as we were not able to attend. I need to find a phone number to call to r...equest a refund as I paid a lot of money for 6 of us. more

Rosemary

We reserved shuttle service. We were waiting at the pick up point from 10min before the pickup time. We couldn't find the shu...ttle. We were waiting and I called to the office 10min later of pick up time. They said that they yelled out my name, but I didn't hear. They just left. Why not calling to me? So, I took a taxi to get there with my money. BOB tour was canceld, because of lack of people. So, we joined to another group. Totally lack of responsibility. I don't trust that they yelled out my name at the pickup point. more
