      A truely excellent tour.


      We met at guest relations and after handing over our qualifaction cards, they took our sizes for our dive gear and we were taken straight back to the seas. Our famiies were advised where to meet to watch us on the dive.


      We had a fairly brief tour of the facility. They told us some about the history, the conservation programs, training and the general up-keep. It was interesting but all anyone wanted to do was get going.


      We were ushered into changing rooms with a locker key. In our lockers were shortie wetsuits and shoes for us to wear. You are allowed to bring your own mask but they provide everything else. They even provided special fish-safe hair bands and mask defogger. When we were taken back to the top of the aquarium all our gear was set-up and waiting for us. I had been a little worried being a baby diver that I would spend a big chunk of the tour time doing this and breaking it down again at the end but it is all done for you. How very Disney magic. The dive masters are all incredibly friendly and put everybody into buddy pairs.


      They explained how the dive will go. (You follow the DM's on a swimming tank tour, you go to the viewing area to wave to your family, and then you have free bottom time) It was incredible. I have only dived in the UK so seeing this many fish was totally new for me. It was great seeing my mum watch me and waving to the diners in the restaurant. My buddy and I lost each other after about 10 minutes of our free time (and since we were all dressed the same it was hard to recognise someone I didn't know) but I just stayed within easy sight of one of the DM's and let the sharks swim around me.


      After a good length of time, the lead DM clapped some stones together and we ascended. They took our kit away to break it down while we went to shower. I asked if I could go back in, if I broke my own kit down but alas it was not to be. The man I had to ask had run off with the others towards the showers. Finally they took us to view the DVD they had made of us diving. It was so amazing. It included a short generic intro and a good amount of everybody on the dive. Yes we did have to pay more for it, but given that they show it to you first, I didn't mind.


      I cannot recommend this highly enough for any qualified divers. It is a truly Disney magic experience. Drinks at the end were provided but some snacks (fruit, crisps, cookies) would have been a nice touch.
