[Choose #1] Dived at Umshaka in Durban and I wish I could dive at Two Oceans Aquarium in Cape Town. Sadly, too expensive for locals.

[Choose #1] Dove with the sharks in the Denver Aquarium, St. Patricks Day March 2012. Don’t remember exactly but think it cost about $180 for a 30 minute dive.

[Choose #1] I’ve dived Epcot & Georgia Aquarium. The Ga. Aquarium = way more expensive but more goodies & diving w/ whale sharks in a controlled environment? Epcot =$200.00 , less goodies, but you get to explore on your own. Both are well worth it!

[Choose #2] Not yet, but i want to. Regardless of the Haters, anytime under water is awesome, and who can turn down some great sea life?

[Choose #1] I dove the National Aquarium in Baltimore. Cost was 195 plus 20 ( now 30.00) for the Aquarium Diver Card. Is run by Atlantic Dive Center a LDS. The dive is in the Atlantic Coral Reef exhibit. Is 13 feet deep and narrow. But a good dive.

[Choose #1] I’m on the dive staff at the Georgia Aquarium. After working in many dive shops and watching customers drop thousadns of dollars on trips in HOPES of seeing one of these. We get you in with 4 wahle sharks and 4 mantas. Pretty good deal I think.

[Choose #1] Georgia Aquarium, DEC 2012, great experience. Pricey $275, but that is to be expected for the experience of diving with that many living things. BTW, staying with the group is not big of a deal. It is a guided tour, not an open water dive.

[Choose #1] Dec. 2008 $135 Epcot was great, Aug. 2010 Georgia $275 good but Epcot was better because you got free time to do what you wanted, Georgia required staying with the guide in a group and too pricey. Back side tour better at Epcot also..

[Choose #1] Twice. First, the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. 3 whale sharks. An amazing experience and a great staff. Very pricey! Second, the Florida Aquarium in Tampa. Another great experience. More reasonably priced.

[Choose #1] I worked part time at the Kemah Aquarium. Had to feed fish & clean pumps. no fins were allowed. They did not want the glass Scratched. I dove with Puranas, Sharks and Stingrays. It was all work, we had to clean the red algae off the glass and rocks.

[Choose #1] Epcot is great, but for a more up close & personal encounter, smaller is better, North Carolina’s Aquarium is fantastic.
