Scuba Diving At Sea World and/or Disney World

by Anonymous

I would like to inquire about scuba diving in Sea World. Some time ago I surfed the net and saw where Disney allows experienced scuba divers to dive with the trainers and I would like to take advantage of that.

If you have information regarding that please tell me because I would really enjoy such an experience.

Hi,

I had read about scuba diving at Disney World before. In fact, we have a report that a reader sent in about diving at Disney.

I also found other reviews of diving at Disney here. It gets some great feedback.

The diving program at Disney is called Divequest and it is advisable to sign up very early (before your trip) since it often sells out.

The dive program at Sea World is different in that you don't have the usual scuba gear on. Rather you put a helmet over your head that allows you to breathe and communicate underwater. You are in a cage with sharks outside and you stay in the cage the whole time. It's a bit like snuba if you have ever done that.

The experience lasts about 30 minutes.

You can take a look at a detailed review I found of the dive at Sea World here.

I hope this helps.

If you do the Sea World shark dive, please write back and let us know how it goes. We would love to hear all about it.

Diving Disney
by: Gregg

Right now (May 2021), Disney is not doing their dive program. I was just there this past week and inquired about it. Not sure when they will restart it. When they do, I will, for sure, go down there to do it. It will be worth the $180!!

Five star dive at the Living Seas!!!
by: Larry

I dove the living sea experance twice. It is a dive location I would not pass up if I was at Epcot. To be inches from huge sharks with out a cage, turtles, rays, and all kind of fish is an dive trip I would do over and over. I'm planing a Disney trip in Dec and plan on doing it again. The crew is very knowledgable and helpfull. The price you pay goes to conservation society. You get a back stage tour which is cool to. All u have to do is bring ur dive card and they supply everything else u will need. Make reservations ASAP as spots do sell out quickly and is limited to a small group of divers. Also u get a T-shirt souvenir how cool. This is a 5 STAR dive exp.

DiveQuest Adventure at Disney
by: Tony S.

I just got back from a week at Disney World and had a great time with the family. The highlight to my vacation was when my wife signed me up for DiveQuest.

This is the chance for certified divers to get in the aquarium with Sharks, Rays, Sea Turtles, and many types of fish. There is no cage and the staff just asks that you do not touch anything living. All the underwater animals were within inches as I swam the aquarium.

The dolphins were kept away from us divers and other fish only because they are like a four hundred pound puppy and would use anything as a chewtoy or plaything.

The $189.00 cost is a savings to the costs of the many dives it would take to see a comparable amount of sealife on my own.

Loved it, recommend it, and would do it again.

Thanks Disney


Hi Tony,

Thanks for your story. It sounds wonderful. I'll have to look into it if I ever get back to Disney. Glad you had a great time.
