Dive Newport Aquarium

We are planning a trip to Newport to dive the Aquarium on September 29 and September 30. Cost to dive aquarium is $249. This includes a 2 tank dive where you dive the Halibut Flats section and feed the sturgeon, and one dive in the sharks and rays tank. This also includes a guide for the dives, a behind the scenes pre-dive tour of the marine life, and an aquarium day pass. Steel Tanks are included also. This is a great COAST dive with unlimited visibility, easy entry and can wave at the spectators! We have a block of rooms reserved for one or two nights at a discounted diver rate. Make a weekend out of it and dive one day and explore one day. When we did this dive in January it was spectacular! Tons to see and lots of great marine life. Feeding the sturgeons was fun and not your basic cold water dive destination. Make a weekend out of this. Either dive on Saturday or on Sunday.

Space is limited so contact us to sign up asap. We can have 12 divers on each day, so space is limited. Rental is half price at $30 for the weekend, and don't need tanks, but need to bring weights.
