Journey with Gentle Giants is a unique scuba diving experience inside the Ocean Voyager 6.3-million-gallon saltwater tank at the Georgia aquarium. The exhibit houses thousands of fish including whale sharks, zebra sharks, sawfish, leopard whiprays, bowmouth guitarfish, humphead wrasses, pompano, and several species of rays... to name a few. =)

Diving guests must be SCUBA certified and and all participates must be at least 12 years of age to participate. Guests under 18 require an adult in the water to accompany them.

The experience lasts 2.5 hours and guests will spend approximately 30 minutes underwater in the massive aquarium. Participants also get to view behind-the-scenes areas of the aquarium.

A portion of the proceeds from this program are donated to the Aquariums 4R conservation program, which promotes the aquariums efforts in the areas of rescue, rehabilitation, research, and responsibility. The program enables the Georgia Aquarium to continue making a positive impact in the health and welfare of aquatic life from around the world.

    Are most people driving up Friday night, if so are there rooms available for Friday? What is the cost for single occupancy for rooms per night?

      I believe Alex and I are planning to go up on Friday night although he isn't diving. I can make arrangements for lodging for you for Friday if you'd like. The hotel is a bit pricey since it's downtown. The one we're staying in is $184/night for single occupancy.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
