We have a Dive Group heading down to Orlando on 10/27/2012 to check out Epcot’s DiveQuest:

Where else can your loved ones have the experience of seeing you
diving with turtles, fish and even sharks...or like Stephen and I got to
do...wish them Happy Birthday while surrounded with marine life
than...The Magic Kingdom’s Epcot DiveQuest.

This is a unique scuba diving experience inside the
5.7-million-gallon saltwater tank at The Seas with Nemo & Friends
Pavilion in Epcot theme park. Scuba-certified Guests can swim with over
6,000 sea creatures—including sea turtles, angelfish, dolphins, eagle
rays and sharks.

All Guests must be SCUBA-certified and at least 10 years of age to
participate. Guests ages 10 to 12 must be accompanied by a paying,
participating parent or guardian.

The experience lasts 3 hours, and Guests will spend approximately 40
minutes underwater in the massive Caribbean Coral Reef aquarium—which
until 2005 was the largest saltwater tank in the world. Participants
also get to see the massive backstage infrastructure required to filter
and maintain a vast manmade ocean flourishing with life.

With its clear water and lack of currents, Epcot DiveQuest is an
experience that both diving enthusiasts and Disney fans will never
forget. Where else in the world can you swim with sharks and sea turtles
while simultaneously waving to people enjoying a sit-down meal?

All diving equipment is provided. You
can bring your mask (though they will provide one if you like), wear
your dive watch and of course wear your swim suit. No jewelry, no
personal camera’s, no personal gear.

At the end of the dive there are HOT
showers (they have shampoo, conditioner and body wash). You also get a
tote bag to put your wet swim suit in after the dive. A DVD can be
purchased for ~$39.

5pm is the meet time at the gate.
5:30-8/8:30 is the tour/dive time. If you hurry after the dive you can
catch the fireworks, the park doesn’t close until 10pm!


FOR
THE PRICE, WE MUST HAVE 12 DIVERS, if not then there will be a vote to
see if the Divers signed up still want to attend and split the
additional fees, which must be paid once requested.


Remember, the regular price is $175.00!

If
everyone cannot agree, then the dive will be cancelled and the fees
paid will be refunded. If the dive has to be rescheduled for any reason
the payment will be refunded.



If a diver must cancel, we will assist in finding a replacement diver, and payment will be refunded if able to fill the spot.





FYI: All the proceeds from Epcot’s "DiveQuest" are donated to
the Disney Wildlife Conservation Fund, which promotes the survival of
wildlife and wild places in all their beauty and diversity. The fund was
established in 1995 to promote and enable global wildlife conservation
through partnerships with qualified scientists, educators and
organizations committed to preserving the earth’s biodiversity.



We currently have 8 divers paid, need 4 more to get special pricing of $91.75/each. Payment in FULL must be received to RSVP. If interested, send me a private message and I will send you payment link.

Thanks,

DeAnn
