Loading...
Epcot DiveQuest - Walt Disney World - Living Sea is a shore accessible salt water dive site, located in Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830. This dive site has an average rating of 4.62 out of 5 from 72 scuba divers. The maximum depth is 21-25ft/6-8m. The average visibility is over 150ft/46m. This dive site provides bathrooms and airfills.

Some have listed this as Sea Quest, that was a TV show about a submarine :)

DiveQuest at Epcot® allows scuba divers to live the ultimate diving experience. DiveQuest takes place daily in the Living Sea pavilion and allows certified scuba divers to dive in the Living Seas coral reef accompanied by a Disney diver.

Imagine a salt-water dive with 203 feet of visibility and over 4,000 animals native to the Caribbean swimming with you in every direction. Tropical fish, sharks, stingrays, giant green sea turtles, and plenty of coral for you to enjoy is just part of the fun. In addition to this unique scuba experience you will actually become part of the show. Your family members and friends can view your dive through any of the 56 giant acrylic windows at the Living Seas. Guests between 10 and 14 years old must be diving with a parent or legal guardian.

DiveQuest lasts approximately 3 hours. Actual dive time is approximately 45 minutes. All dives are video-taped and guests are given the opportunity to view the video tape and to purchase a copy. After the dive guests also receive a certificate of completion, along with an Epcot® DiveQuest T-shirt and refreshments. All diving equipment is provided and included in the cost. Theme park admission is not required or included in the price.

All proceeds from the Dive Quest program is given to the Wild Life Conservation Fund.

Disney does everything pretty well and their aquarium dive is no different. They’ve a handful of Naui dive masters who give an interesting tour. They almost perfectly guess your gear sizes and weights. You get 40 minutes to dive. Ten with their cameraman, and the rest on your own. You aren’t assigned a buddy. If you chase fish around and burn through your 80, they’ll do a quick tank swap for you. They may judge you, but it’s your vacation. Make sure to wave at the kids and restaurant guests.

The dressing room facilities are great with lockers, and showers. They will give you a hat or shirt or sometimes both, sell you the sub stick with your video, and if you don’t have a park ticket for Epcot, but do the later time slot, act nice enough, and beg appropriately, the DM cast member may let you out into the park through the gift shop to grab a bite and see the fireworks instead of escorting you out the front gate, what’s supposed to happen. The experience was exactly how I thought Disney would make aquarium diving magical. Totally worth it if you’re down at Disney for a conference or corporate meeting.

Really enjoyed this. They provide gear, so you don’t need your gear (except your mask if you choose). Very organized and showers in changing rooms. If you are near Epcot and the dive boats aren’t going out, it’s a fun dive.

This is one of my top 5 favorite dives. Acting as a Disney Cast member for the day is a lot of fun. Playing with the kids in the aquarium and making them laugh makes it all the more fun! Getting up close and personal with Sand Tiger sharks and Eagle rays and tons of fish is incredible. The dive master and crew are amazingly helpful and do everything to make your dive nice and relaxing. You never have to lift a finger.

Glad to hear you enjoyed your dive. One of the other divers in my group was fortunate enough to find a shark’s tooth in the first 10 seconds when we first got in a circle at the beginning of the dive.

Amazing dive, Sand Tiger sharks, Sandbar sharks, Blacknose sharks, Sting Rays, Loggerhead & Green Turtles, sooooo many beautiful fish. If you haven’t been here I highly recommend this dive, they do everything for you and also provide everything for you. Can’t wait to do this dive again!

Perfect visibility. Nice sand tiger sharks and rescue turtles. Excellent dive for novices.

Can anyone that has a higher SAC(i’m 6’6" and 265lbs, I just use more air than the common joe in most situations) comment on their use of the 63cf (i think that’s what I read they use and pictures look like it) and your actual dive time? I mean if there’s any depth I certainly don’t see me getting 45 minutes out of a 63. I will be going to Disney doing a land/sea type vacation in Spring 2016 and wanted to do this so i’m just feeling out details since it isn’t cheap.

dives last about 45 min. if you need another tank they will swap it out for you on the spot.

Thank you very much. At least I know that if my SAC is a little high for the tank they take care of it simply!

Diving the tank at Epcot was one of the best experiences that I have ever had. Swimming with all the different species of fish and being next too a sand tiger shark was very exciting. I highly recommend this dive to anyone.
