Guaranteed Whale Shark Encounter! Huron Scuba visits the Georgia Aquarium
Scuba Dive with the Gentle Giants and get in the water with Beluga Whales at the Georgia Aquarium

Join us on the weekend of Saturday May 4, 2013

Whale sharks at the Georgia Aquarium

Huron Scuba has the hottest ticket in scuba diving - a GUARANTEED in-water encounter with whale sharks and a chance to get up close and personal with Beluga Whales!

The Huron Scuba Dive Team, led in 2013 by Brian and Melissa, has planned a weekend excursion to the Georgia Aquarium. In the past they have been a huge hit with our dive team customers.   *New this year, we are adding the Beluga Whale and Friends Interactive Experience to the package.  Located in Atlanta, GA it is the world's largest aquarium with, among many other exhibits and creatures, WHALE SHARKS, BELUGA WHALES and MANTA RAYS.  All divers will get to see a lot of the behind the scenes action as part of their tour, including how the aquarium cares for the great variety of creatures in the facility.

The Details: We begin our day with the 10:00am Beluga Whale experience.  CLICK HERE for more information on the Beluga program.  After getting out of the water with the Belugas, we will then spend a few hours taking in more of the aquarium exhibits and then report for diving at the 3:00pm event.  We will scuba dive with whale sharks in the largest habitat at the Aquarium.  CLICK HERE for more information on the Journey with Gentle Giants program.  Due to contamination risks, we are only allowed to bring a personal swimsuit and mask, the aquarium provides everything else.  Upon completion of the dive with Whale Sharks, we will head back to our hotel(s) for the evening.  A group dinner will be organized and everyone is invited to attend if interested.  Sunday can be spent anyway that you choose, including more time at the aquarium if you want as every participant will also get an annual pass as part of our excursion so you are able to visit anytime for the next 12 months.

This trip has very limited availability so once the spaces are gone, they are all gone! Our group will dive on Saturday afternoon, and any non-divers coming along will be escorted by Aquarium staff for the best viewing of the divers.

Information for divers:

The Aquarium is adjacent to many other great attractions, most of the following are within walking distance or a short drive:  

Atlanta is a lively, interesting city with an incredible variety of opportunities for fun during this weekend. That being said, there is so much to see at the aquarium that it can take two days to truly experience everything.

We are excited to bring this unique opportunity to the Huron Scuba Dive Team, and hope that you can join us on a future trip!
