Where else can your loved ones have the experience of seeing you diving with turtles, fish and even sharks...or like Stephen and I got to do...wish them Happy Birthday while surrounded with marine life than...The Magic Kingdom's Epcot DiveQuest.
This is a unique scuba diving experience inside the 5.7-million-gallon saltwater tank at The Seas with Nemo & Friends Pavilion in Epcot theme park. Scuba-certified Guests can swim with over 6,000 sea creatures—including sea turtles, angelfish, dolphins, eagle rays and sharks.
All Guests must be SCUBA-certified and at least 10 years of age to participate. Guests ages 10 to 12 must be accompanied by a paying, participating parent or guardian.
The experience lasts 3 hours, and Guests will spend approximately 40 minutes underwater in the massive Caribbean Coral Reef aquarium—which until 2005 was the largest saltwater tank in the world. Participants also get to see the massive backstage infrastructure required to filter and maintain a vast manmade ocean flourishing with life.
With its clear water and lack of currents, Epcot DiveQuest is an experience that both diving enthusiasts and Disney fans will never forget. Where else in the world can you swim with sharks and sea turtles while simultaneously waving to people enjoying a sit-down meal?
All diving equipment is provided. You can bring your mask (though they will provide one if you like), wear your dive watch and of course wear your swim suit. No jewelry, no personal camera's, no personal gear.
At the end of the dive there are HOT showers (they have shampoo, conditioner and body wash). You also get a tote bag to put your wet swim suit in after the dive. A DVD can be purchased for ~$39.
6:00pm is the meet time at the gate. 6:30-9:30 is the tour/dive time.
FOR THE PRICE, WE MUST HAVE 12 DIVERS, if not then there will be a vote to see if the Divers signed up still want to attend and split the additional fees, which must be paid once requested.
Remember, the regular price is $175.00!
If everyone cannot agree, then the dive will be cancelled and the fees paid will be refunded. If the dive has to be rescheduled for any reason the payment will be refunded.
If a diver must cancel, we will assist in finding a replacement diver, and payment will be refunded if able to fill the spot.
Cost: $100.00/diver (+ pay pal fee, if want to pay cash or check, email me). This does not include any park admission, so that will be extra if family members attend to watch or you want to go ahead of time or after.
FYI: All the proceeds from Epcot's "DiveQuest" are donated to the Disney Wildlife Conservation Fund, which promotes the survival of wildlife and wild places in all their beauty and diversity. The fund was established in 1995 to promote and enable global wildlife conservation through partnerships with qualified scientists, educators and organizations committed to preserving the earth's biodiversity.
