    Underwater sea scooter

    I saw the coolest thing on TV, they were doing top 21 Beaches, and in the Bahamas, they had this Underwater sea scooter, looks so cool, has anyone ever seen these things, wonder if Aruba has them ?

    Thanks for the move to the proper place, I emailed them, see if they have what I saw, they look so cool, you sit on them, stick your head up through a big round thing, oxy tank is held on the front of it

    I was under the impression you were talking about "plain" sea scooters like these. As far as I am aware no one on the island has what you described. The closest to that would be SNUBA, but not self propelled.

    Pretty cool stuff...For those who may be curious, the type of scooter that Kathy is referring to is:





    A two person model, you can purchase one for the price of a car



    "Plain old traditional" type scooter a long the lines of what JADS rents (and I believe Kent owns similar.)

    Kent dooes have, blue ones, they look so cool also. I am not a experienced diver. that other thing that you sit on, just looks so cool to me, I certainly can't afford to buy one ( the price of a car ? ), was interested in knowing if Aruba had them and rented them, but inquired and they dont, i'm sure someday they will . Lisa, thanks for the picture post, that is exactly it
