I got REALLY lucky and won this experience at a Scuba Diving Equipment Convention! Everyone else in my group (including husband) went off to dinner at Bahama Breezes since my reservation was at 6:30 pm and admission for only an hour or two at Epcot would have been $75 per person. (OUCH!) I will say that the experience was great! All equipment was supplied, (Shorty Wetsuit, Booties, Fins, Mask, BC, Reg) sized correctly, with weight-integrated BC's weighted correctly, as well. Water temp was comfy enough for the 45 minute dive at about 77 degrees or so. The Dive master explained the dive plan and we were pretty much left alone to explore the 25 ft. deep massive aquarium. It seemed well-stocked with an assortment of reef fish and several ENORMOUS loggerhead and green turtles. A few sand tiger sharks swam lazily around pretty much ignoring the divers. The sergeant majors Definitely DO NOT ignore the divers, and just like on a reef, will bite if they feel that their territory had been invaded. I invaded. I got nipped on the elbow. Good thing they are not the size of the sharks. Nice clean shower/locker area with soap, shampoo, conditioner, towels, hair dryers, was also provided. After the dive we had a group meeting with an evaluation of the dive, a t-shirt presentation, and video viewing of our group (DVD available for purchase). This would not have been an inexpensive dive at the full price of $140 or so, but even if I had paid this amount, I would have felt that the experience was worth the price. LOTS OF FUN, and the usual friendly Disney folks made the dive even more fun.
