The Seas Aqua Tour is approximately 2.5 to 3 hours long and costs $140-145 per guest. Guests first watch a video about the sea and its creatures, learning about the environment and its inhabitants, follow your guide through a tour of the massive backstage infrastructure that filters and maintains the unique coral reef habitat. You'll have a chance to get all of your questions answered before slipping into the tank for 30 minutes of swim time.

An easy-to-use scuba-assisted snorkel unit keeps guests afloat and supplied with piped air. Swim along the surface in the tank and explore the different types of sea life that are present. Guests using the snorkel system are not able to dive below the surface, but have a clear view of over 65 species of marine life that live in the current free, crystal clear waters below.

I am actually a CM at Walt Disney World and I was able to experience a shorter version of this tour a few years ago...and it was ABSOLUTLY AMAZING. I reccomend it to everyone to do at least once. As stated above the equipment is very easy to use and makes you feel completly safe. Definatly a must-do for any Worldfile who's seen the parks and is looking for something unique and special to do!
