This was my 3rd time on this dive but the first with the family watching. Disney gave them a front row seat and video'd their reaction while I dived. I enjoyed watching them watch me more than the actual dive. The wife had never seen me underwater before, and the smile on her face was priceless to me. The dive... More

We completed the Divequest experience in September and had a lovely evening. Andy our guide was very friendly and informative. The dive itself was great with good quality equipment. The dive was 45mins and we got to see a wide range of animals – tiger shark, leopard shark, reef sharks, turtles, rays etc. The experience is not cheap but your... More

This past weekend my son and I went to Epcot to participate in Dive Quest. When we arrived we were treated with the usual Disney hospitality. The staff was very organized and had us checked in quickly. After check in we were given a backstage tour which ended in a classroom for signing releases and a review of safety rules.... More

October 1 was my 70th birthday. My husband treated me to a dive at the Epcot aquarium and our daughter and her husband joined us. My last dive was 20+ years ago so I was somewhat apprehensive and had butterflies in my stomach. The dive ended up being easier than I expected (a little trouble clearing my ears). The dive... More

Diving on a tank is like visiting a botanical garden. This is probably not as exciting as encountering sharks, rays and giant turtles in the ocean but then again, where are you going to see all those creates together in 40 minutes dive with unlimited visibility, perfect water temperature and no current? If you are planning to come to Orlando... More

This is our second visit to this experience and as divers celebrating a special occasion we had to do it again. You meet outside by Guest relations and are collected by the staff who then check your dive qualifications. During this time they check shoe size and guess wetsuit size. You have a quick tour back stage but to be... More

When we did our first aquarium dive (which was not at Disney), the instructor asked who had been diving in an aquarium before then asked who had been diving at Disney. He told the one person who's hand was still up "please do not expect this to be like Disney". When I heard that, my husband and I both agreed... More

This was my first aquarium dive and I loved every minute of it. I enjoyed the behind the scenes portion, but the dive was amazing. I loved being onstage and interacting with guests. People wanted me in photos with their family members and I loved high fiving kids thru the thick glass. Sea turtles, sharks, rays, and beautiful fish are... More

My husband and I experienced the Epcot Dive Quest in June 2013. We really enjoy diving and have been to many places in the world, but this was our first time diving in a tank with such a controlled environment. The set up is amazing and the tank really is enormous. The staff were extremely friendly and the entire process... More
