  • This location is shown only to members

I know a lot of you certified divers have been itching to get wet and so here it is! Come dive with us at the National Aquarium in Baltimore! We are proud to partner with Atlantic Eddge and the National Aquarium in Baltimore to offer the best diving in Maryland— dive in the beautiful Atlantic Coral Reef exhibit and experience all the abundant life from a perspective only a few ever get to experience. Led by professional dive staff, participants will be taught the basics of Aquarium diving before taking the plunge into the world of rays, sharks, and 53 species of fish. As you swim among these fascinating creatures, you will also learn the role divers can play in reef conservation and how to be a steward of our precious natural resources. There is a brief classroom session where we will learn about the Aquarium, its conservation message, the animals we will see, etc. We will then brief at the exhibit, get ready to dive and then hop into the water for a 45 minute dive! You would have to travel around the globe to experience a day of diving like this, but with this fun-filled experience you can have it all right here in your own backyard!

    is there another upcoming aquarium dive soon? Also, people who have done this, is it worth the $200 for 1 dive? Thanks for the feedback.

    Hey everyone, my job has been busier than expected and it is making it difficult to get away on September 21. Would someone want my spoy at the aquarium dive next Saturday?

    I'm brand new to this meet up but happy to see a group for diving! I'm coming alone (need more friends who dive) but can share a ride or drive. I'm in Herndon, VA and have room for 3 people.

    Am I correct when I read that regulators, BC's, computers and weights are provided? Is that included in the price?
