National Aquarium AKA Baltimore Aquarium - Baltimore MD


Loading...
Local dive shop offers an aquarium diver course. The class is at the aquarium...a couple hours of lecture followed by two dives, one in the coral reef tank and the other in the wings in the water display. Unfortunately they do not let you dive in the shark tank. You provide the mask, fins and wetsuit everything else is provided when you arrive. Water very shallow. For the wings in the water tank it is best to just kneel on the bottom that way the animals come to you. Very friendly turtle that enjoyed trying to bury it’s head between my legs. Something that is neat to do once to say you dove in the aquarium but it is pricey.

Atlantic Edge Dive Center is proud to partner with the National Aquarium in Baltimore to offer the best diving in Maryland—two dives in the Aquarium’s most popular exhibits, the Atlantic Coral Reef, and Wings in the Water. Led by professional dive staff, participants will be taught the basics of Aquarium diving before taking the plunge into our world of rays, sharks, and 53 species of fish. As you swim amongst these fascinating creatures, you will also learn the role divers can play in reef conservation and how to be a steward of our precious natural resources.

Prerequisites - Must be a Certified Diver. Must be 18 years old.

Dove here yesterday. Good fun! I’d suggest it to everyone. While your at it, might as well get the PADI Cert they offer, Aquarium Diver.

DIve staff was great! Dive was 13 feet only and narrow! My equipment set up ( weight) was way off so I sank like a rock. I would prefered to use my own gear as I had a hard time adjusting to thiers...Lots of friendly fish....

Some really interesting fish, lookdowns, surgeonfish, triggerfish, zebrashark; the surgeonfish had a lot of skin diseases and lined up for my cleaning station. I had mixed emotion of liking spending time with them, and wishing they were healthier and free in the ocean.
