The world of Key West diving and snorkeling will never be the same with the introduction of the new personal submarine devices known as BOB devices, which stands for Breathing Observation Bubble; Key West Dive Center is excited to be offering these new and innovative tours
Online PR News – 24-April-2010 – – The southernmost island's leading center for information and reservations for Key West diving excursions is excited to announce its newest and most innovative water tour: the BOB diving submarine adventures. Utilizing a unique and innovative design, BOB diving allows visitors to explore the fascinating underwater coral reef gardens of Key West using a personal underwater scooter-like device. While other top tourist destinations in the world use personal submarine technology similar to the BOB devices, this is the first time the devices have been introduced to Key West.
Diving in 8-10 feet of water, a Key West diving excursion using the BOB devices allows for the simplest and most easy-to-use underwater exploration technology. BOB diving does not require breathing through a snorkel or a mask, nor does it require any scuba diving gear. You simply jump into your own personalized underwater scooter, place your head in the "bubble" which has a steady flow of oxygen, and maneuver the device through the coral reef gardens. Anyone who is at least 12 years old and at least 4.5-feet tall can use these unique devices for underwater exploration.
The Key West Dive Center, Key West's leading center for Key West diving reservations and information, is excited to introduce the new BOB diving tours to its base of customers coming to the island of Key West and looking to explore the fascinating underwater environments of the coral gardens. The center is currently offering the 3-hour tours at the introductory rate of $125 per person.
"This is by far our most unique tour," says Key West Dive Center office manager Laurie Johnson. "BOB diving is much different from snorkeling and scuba diving, so guests who have already done snorkeling or diving down in Key West can now experience a completely different way of exploring the coral reef."
In addition to the new BOB diving tours, the Key West Dive Center offers a variety of water tours including Key West scuba diving for both certified and non-certified divers, 3.5-hour long Key West snorkeling trips (as well as the new 5-hour Looe Key Snorkel trip), and dolphin/snorkel combo tours.
