This is the type of dive every level of diver can enjoy. As the saying goes, "no one does it better than Disney". Having done a lot of open water dives I had low expectations going into this, but I have to admit I really enjoyed it. The staff was top notch and the calm water and abundance of sea life was awesome. After a tour of the backstage facilities and a safety briefing we were in the water and enjoying everything they had to offer. I would highly recommend this too new divers and us old divers alike. Great job Disney.

This was a great experience. The dive is super easy, so suitable for any skill level, including beginners. The staff was great. The gear is well maintained Scubapro. You cannot bring any of your own gear except a mask (no snorkels). You will be provided with a shorty wetsuit and booties, as well as a mask if you need one. They even provide towels. Basically all you need to bring is a swim suit. You get a back stage tour then head to the locker rooms to change. The dive masters give a short briefing then you gear up and dive. At the beginning of the dive you get a dive master lead tour around the aquarium then you are on your own for the rest of the time. Bottom time is approximately 40 minutes at a max depth of 27 feet. It was fun to interact with people at the windows and there were plenty of fish to see.

This is not a difficult dive by any means. It is however a fantastic, controlled, safe dive with the most perfect water conditions.If you are looking for a unique experience while at Disney, than do Dive Quest. The staff is great, top-notch equipment. I have done this over 10 times and its a great addition to my vacation everytime. The oppty to be on the other side.of the glass will make it all worth your time and money!

I went diving at Epcot and had a blast! Our host showing us the area and getting us set up was hilarious! Very cute kid! We were provided lockers with all our gear. The dive was an easy dive with a ten minute tour underwater then we had 40 minutes to just wonder! There were so many fish, sharks, turtles and rays! It was a fun way to see big fish! I also enjoyed waving to the people watching us! This was a great experience!

This was only our second dive so we were a little nervous but we had a great time. It was a last minute add to our trip but they take up to 18 people at a time on the dive. We were a little worried at the number of people but the tank is very large and we felt like we were by ourselves a lot of time. We initially did not sign up for the dive because we were told we had to buy Epcot tickets also which would be a extra $250 for two but this is not correct. You only have to pay for the dive itself which is around $175 a person. You meet just outside the gate at the customer service window. There are two dives I believe at 4:30 and 5:30. You get a short tour of the Aquarium and then proceed to the dock where they have all your gear set up. Everyone goes down together then on a short guided tour for about 10 minutes then you can swim anywhere in the tank you want on your own. You have about 45 minutes in the water. We had a great time with all the animals and it was a great easy dive being a new diver to get some practice in. After we watched the video and you have a option of buying for $35. Not having a lot of experience we were not sure how to measure this against diving in the ocean but we meet two of the divers who have logged over 600 dives all over the world and come to Epcot every year. We asked them if they have been to so many places why come here. We were happy when she answered because it would take us 10-20 dives in different places to see all the animals we get to see in the aquarium that we love to come do this each year.
