The Swim with the Fishes program at the Florida Aquarium in Tampa Bay gives you an aquatic shore excursion you'll be talking about for the rest of your cruise! This in-water reef adventure offers you the opportunity to encounter a simulated Florida Keys coral reef dive site without being a certified scuba diver. You will wear a small scuba tank, regulator and flotation device that keeps you on the surface of the water. Get a taste of the thrill of diving while you admire the marine life on the coral reef.

The Swim with the Fishes program at Tampa Bay's Florida Aquarium provides a unique experience, especially for kids, which introduces the basic concepts of scuba diving and highlights the beauty of Florida's aquatic environment.

This shore excursion takes place in the aquarium's Coral Reef Gallery, which simulates a 60-foot (18-meter) dive site modeled after an actual dive site in the Dry Tortugas near Key West, Florida. In this 500,000-gallon (1.9-million-liter) tank, you will see a reef that is the base for a vibrant community of marine life, including more than 2,000 creatures, representing about 65 species, all native to Florida.

There will be two dive masters in the water with the group at all times. All dive team members are CPR-, first aid- and emergency oxygen-trained.

Advanced reservations are required to participate in the Swim with the Fishes program; it is not available to book on the day.

Please note:
This excursion is located within a 10-minute walk to the cruise port, so you determine the time you return to your ship in Tampa. Please allow yourself ample time to enjoy the excursion and ensure your timely return to the port. This excursion is not covered by our Worry-free policy.
