My favorite tour at WDW. You have to be a certified diver to participate, and they will check your C-Card when you sign in for it at Guest Relations. The tour itself is a short session in the 'classroom' where you discuss the ocean, and conservation and they explain the dive plan. All of the gear is provided for you - divers can bring a personal mask (if you have a prescription lens) but nothing else and no cameras. A photo pass diver will be with you and take vid while you are diving. You go from the classroom up to the top of the aquarium and get a great view of the operation of the facility in the process. You enter the water from a platform, and they have all the gear set up for you so you just step into your BC, buckle up and go. The tank itself is lovely, and the amount of sea life you can see in the 30 or so minutes under the water is amazing. Turtles and sand sharks, fish of all kinds, rays - they stage a swim through for you for the sake of the video of it and you have some time to explore around with your dive buddy in a good percentage of the tank. (not in the mammal area, and not when they are feeding any sharks) This is a gentle, very controlled dive - as you would expect in Disney World. If you are a salt water diver, this is not that experience, but it's well done and a great way to spend a few hours getting wet and seeing some fish. You get a nice warm shower when it's done, and a souvenir to take home along with any vid you decide to purchase.

Pros:

All gear provided, well organized, lots of fish to look at, opportunity to wave at family on other side of the glass.

Cons:

None really.

First- this was FUN! Both of my kids (ages 11 & 15) were comfortable even though this was their first salt water experience. Because my son has a junior OW cert, he is limited to 40’ but the tank is well within that at 26’. The equipment is well above par for “rental” type gear and they do size you up well. My daughter (15) is a casual diver- only 1-3 dives a year since certification but she looked extremely comfortable. I noticed MANY inexperienced divers in our group but everyone was able to follow the instructions and enjoy themselves. Here you’ll see more marine life than on almost any actual dive and it gives the added benefit of allowing family members (who don’t dive) the opportunity to have a glimpse of what we divers do.

I had only two minor issues... the website and the booking agent were adamant about nothing allowed other than a prescription mask. They were allowing ANY personal mask as well as a dive computer (which would’ve been nice). Also, the DVD (purchased extra afterwards) comes in a USB chip so you’ll need an adapter for your computer or pay a photoshop to transfer it to a more usable firm of media.

Overall it was a fantastic experience.

Pros:

Safe, comfortable, simple and TOTALLY FUN!!!

Cons:

Lack of DVD download instructions, some instructions prior to arrival inaccurate.
