Happy New Year!
Earlier this week, I found myself at Epcot in Orlando. I got a last-minute phone call from a friend at Scuba Quest Dive Centers (where my husband and I got certified to dive in 2012) saying there were a couple extra spots left on a trip to scuba dive in the Living Seas with Nemo & Friends exhibit in the park!
If you've never been, the Living Seas is a 5.7 million gallon saltwater tank with over 6000 ocean creatures, including rays, sharks, and sea turtles. They also have an area where they rehabilitate injured dolphins and manatees--it's a seriously cool aquarium, and they allow divers to explore the tank on a daily basis. The tour includes a behind-the-scenes look at the aquarium facility, as well as all your gear rentals, and about 40 minutes in the water. The folks at Epcot take extremely good care of all their guests, too!
If you're a certified diver, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this trip! Check out a little clip from our video...it's about 40 seconds long, and gets you up close to one of the sharks that hung out with our group!
