There's not a lot of opportunities to dive next to sharks like you can at DiveQuest (at least here you know these sharks aren't going to impale you with their teeth). They start the excision with a unique backstage view of the operation and then the dive lasts about 40 minutes which is a perfect amount of time. You can... More

From start to finish, this was a fantastic experience--one of the best dives I've ever done. There are two reasons for this: first, the diverse assortment of marine life (four or five types each of sharks and rays, all completely unfazed by the presence of noisy, bubble-blowing divers) and second, the incredibly luxurious conditions (top-quality dive gear, friendly and helpful...

My husband and I did Divequest March 2015. We left our two little kids with a "Kid's Nite Out" sitter at the hotel (pricey, but very happy with it) and took a resort bus to Epcot. We easily found the group meet up spot on the right side of the entrance gates, at the Customer Service desk. The behind the... More

This was the second time I have done Divequest at Epcot. The first time was fantastic, and this time was equally awesome. The people who are working this attraction are top notch, very friendly and knowledgeable. You can tell they really care about the animals that they work with. Our guide Ellie was super, she definitely takes pride in her... More

As an older group we found this the best of the ones we visited. If you go to Orlando in winter remember if can be chilly.

When I found out you could dive at Disney we had to do it. My daughter is 11 years old and was very nervous doing her PADI open water in Egypt with all the waves so I thought this was a good calm environment for a second holiday dive. I had to call from the UK which took patience as... More

So, what do you do if your children aren't certified scuba divers? This is what you do - in full dive gear, from the surface only - BC's are designed to float and you aren't wearing any weight, so everything stays on the top. The behind the scenes tour of the aquarium and 30 min in the aquarium with the... More

My husband and I dove the Epcot Dive Quest in 2008 and it was amazing. It is definitely worth the price. They take you on a tour of the facility and provide all of the gear. No place other than around the other side of the world or in the Florida Keys can you be guaranteed to see as much... More

You accept that you are swimming in a fish tank. That said, what's bad about 200 foot visibility, giant sea turtles, sharks and rays, even guitarfish? It's only 25 feet deep, and there's no current or chop. I liked it enough to go back.
