If it's been a while since your last dive, we highly recommend a refresher course prior to your dive.

The dive is approximately 40 minutes in the Atlantic Coral Reef Exhibit on the fourth floor. The exhibit is 13 feet deep with 335,000 gallons of saltwater at 76 degrees. There are only 6 divers in each group so we recommend signing up for it as soon as possible.
