    DiveQuest reviews?

    A recent mention on Lou's show renewed my interest in the DiveQuest tour at what was once The Living Seas. This is something I have wanted to do for quite a while now but, as with all things, real-life takes over and wanna-dos and dreams fall on the backburner. I'm trying to make it a reality now.

    I have yet to hear a bad word about DiveQuest, and I have read countless reviews across the internet, but what I am interested in is this: have any of you lovely people on WDW Radio participated in it recently?

    After all, I trust your opinions more than anyone else [/S uck-up]

    Just curious.

    Re: DiveQuest reviews?

    My 19 year old son and I have done Dive Quest three times now and it's always been a great experience. Our most recent dive was January 6,2011. You do need to be open water certified which we obtained at our local YMCA a couple years ago. The classes were 300 dolllars each including the use all equipment.
    There are two other options available at the Living Seas that do not require scuba certification that I have not experienced.
    Dolphins in depth. Which is more educational than hands on.
    There is also the option of snorkling on top of the water. You wear life vests so you can't swim below the surface.
    My son and I are already looking forward to doing DiveQuest again next January.

    Re: DiveQuest reviews?

    The fact that you've already done it three times - and are planning another - is praise enough! Thanks for the reply.

    Do the dive-guides let you roam around inside the tank or do you do swim around in a big chain, resort style?

    You pair up before the dive then meet at the bottom. You do one lap through the tank as a group then you're on your own.

    I did Dive Quest back in 2007, enjoyed it immensely. You sit through a safety brief (watcha video), they certify your dive card and the like. The dive itslef isd great, water crystal clear of course. it's salt water so if you are used to diving in fresh water so their is a slight difference in bouancy and of course the first time some fo the salt water gets into your mask it will sting a little. Greta experience andvery well conducted by the Disney folks.
