right, you heard us – DIVE in the National Aquarium in Baltimore! Atlantic Edge
Scuba is proud to partner with the National Aquarium in Baltimore to offer the
best diving in Maryland— dive in the beautiful Atlantic Coral Reef tank and
experience all the abundant life from a perspective only a few ever get to
experience . Led by our professional dive staff, participants will be taught the
basics of Aquarium diving before taking the plunge into our world of rays,
sharks, and 90 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. On dive days there are two
scheduled start times to choose from 2:45pm or 3:45pm. There is a 1 hour
classroom session where we will learn about the Aquarium, its conservation
message, the animals we will see, etc. We will then brief at the exhibit, get
ready to dive and then hop into the water with over 900 fish! You would have to
travel around the globe to experience a day of diving like this, but with this
fun-filled experience you can have it all right here in your own backyard!Prerequisites – Must be a Certified Open Water
