Attraction details
Owner description: The Seas Aqua Tour allows Guests to swim on the surface of the 5.7-million-gallon saltwater tank inside The Seas with Nemo & Friends Pavilion at Epcot theme park. Guests use a supplied-air snorkel system and do not need to be scuba certified.Guests must be at least 8 years of age to participate. Guests ages 8 to 12 must be accompanied by a paying, participating parent or guardian.Swim with over 6,000 sea creatures representing over 60 species—including sea turtles, angelfish, eagle rays and sharks. The supplied-air snorkel system is simple to use and the equipment keeps you buoyant, so it is easy to float on top of the water. The system does not allow you to dive below the surface, but you'll have a remarkable view of the tranquil sea life below you.The experience lasts 2.5 hours, and Guests will spend approximately 30 minutes swimming in the massive Caribbean Coral Reef aquarium—which until 2005 was the largest saltwater tank in the world. Participants also learn about many of these beautiful creatures and get to see the massive backstage infrastructure required to filter and maintain a vast manmade ocean flourishing with life.All snorkeling equipment is provided. Please bring a swim suit.You can get a closer look at some remarkable aquatic mammals on the Dolphins in Depth tour. If you are a certified scuba diver and wish to dive below the surface of the tank, you may be able to participate in the Epcot DiveQuest program.The Epcot® Seas Aqua Tour is presented by the National Association of Underwater Instructors.

The Epcot Seas Aqua Tour was absolutely amazing. Not only did we get to swim with over 600 Atlantic Ocean species but we also got an in depth tour of the facility and how it is run. The staff was knowledgable and really fun to be with. Especially Mike M! He made the three hour tour feel like 10 minutes. After they tour they marched us through the aquarium in front of all the disney guests in our westsuits. We were then escorted up the big center spiral staircase and came out at the top of this huge aquarium big enough to fit the epcot ball inside. We had state of the art equipment and instructors. We wore regulators and tanks on our backs like typical scuba but the wetsuit kept us at the surface so there was no diving involved although I felt like we were. We were not alone in the water we were constantly being helped by the staff if need be. The sharks were as big as we were but stayed to themselves and the giant sea turtle was amazing. We received a photo per person and a keepsake bag after the tour was over. I would highly recommend this tour. We were ages 14, 33 and 60. We received a tour discount for using our Disney Visa and paid about $125/pp.
