I heard about this new shore excursion - BOB Breathing Observation Bubble. I know someone who went on it while in St. Thomas, and she is not a strong swimmer. She advised me that it is not a requirement. I am interested, but I only "dog paddle" Any advise? Royal Caribbean only could tell me that one must be able to jump into the water and climb back to the boat. No snorkeling or scuba experience required. HELP.. Tx

This is a totally safe and doable activity for non-swimmers. Royal Caribbean's explanation is just about right - all you need to do is be able to get into the water and pull yourself back up onto the platform into the boat. It is sort of like a hike under water.

I did this once and although I am a good swimmer - it was not necessary to be able to enjoy it. Have fun!
