Reef Scuba Diving - The Sea Trek Reef Encounter

    By Lauren Tjaden

    I’ve always wanted to share what SCUBA reef diving in Florida is like with, well, everyone. I want everyone to have the chance to wonder at the fish, in all their vivid glory and shapes and sizes. I want them to see odd plants that are actually animals swaying in their secret rhythms. I want them to be transported by the experience, as I am, to what is literally another world.

    But learning to reef dive takes time. It isn’t cheap, either, even if you just do a "Discovery Dive."  Further, all kinds of restrictions exist.

    Miami Seaquarium has solved all that with their new Sea Trek Reef Encounter. If you can walk and breathe, you can enjoy Sea Trek.

    First, you’ll don a state-of-the-art dive helmet that allows you to breathe freely. Then you’ll descend 15 feet below the surface with your Sea Trek Guide for an underwater walking journey in their 300,000-gallon Coral Reef Tank. You’ll encounter schools of tropical fish, stingrays and more.  Your experience also includes a full day of shows and exhibits at Miami Seaquarium.

    It's that easy.

    Right now, you can save 40 percent on the Sea Trek Reef Encounter. The regular rate is $99, but you can snag a special rate of $59 by calling 305-365-2501 to make your reservation today. Be sure to mention savings code DH-1250 to receive this special rate.

    The fine print: Florida sales tax will be added to the above rates. The special rate is available only for new reservations until Dec. 15, 2012, and other restrictions apply.
