    Does the DiveQuest experience at Epcot typically run year-round? I have someone in my party who is SCUBA-certified and interested in participating in January.


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    My wife and I have been to the EPCOT Seas Adventures – DiveQuest experience more than once, and we loved it every time. Actually, she and I enjoyed our exploration of the seas together the first time, and on the second time, she dove solo, just so she could surprise our daughters at the tank window. They did not know she was in there, so the moment when she swam up and they realized it was her is a memory we will remember forever!

    DiveQuest is available throughout the year. You can dive in all four seasons since the tank is completely indoors. Also, they host dives every day of the week, so it should work into your overall vacation plans. There should be a few dive times per day to choose from, though I would recommend they reserve their spots before arriving on vacation. The only caveat I would share is that there could be a random day where dives are not available, due to a needed maintenance of the tank. But that is infrequent, and with a reservation, you avoid that slim chance of it happening.

    What was DiveQuest Like?

    I was thrilled with the experience. While my wife had been a scuba diver for years, I had only just earned my PADI certification, and was a bit nervous. Their pre-dive meeting was informative, interesting, and reassuring. The dive itself was amazing fun, and the variety of aquatic life was impressive. I can say, however, that the highlight for me was sitting next to the windows that looked into The Seas with Nemo & Friends Pavilion. I was able to interact with some of the kids inside, playing patty-cake with one, and hamming it up with others.

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
