Take a guided Sea Trek Helmet Dive to walk on the ocean floor at Coral World Ocean Park -- all the thrill of exploring like a scuba diver without the need for specialized training. The weight and design of the helmet allow you to walk comfortably along the seafloor with a railing for added stability. Since the helmet fits right over your head, you can wear your eyeglasses, and your hair won't get wet.
Following a 15-minute orientation, a certified Sea Trek guide will lead you and your group along an underwater trail through the coral reef at a maximum depth of 20 feet (6 meters). You are likely to encounter schools of horse-eye jacks, beautiful parrotfish, arrow crabs, sea cucumbers, and possibly even a stingray or sea turtle.
Professional divers take pictures and videos of your adventure, available for purchase afterward.
When you re-surface, continue your adventure with about 90 minutes to explore Coral World Ocean Park. See an amazing array of sea creatures in the Caribbean Reef Encounter. Juvenile sharks make their home in the Shark Shallows. Interactive time awaits at the Touch Pool with sea stars and sea cucumbers.
Visit the Lorikeet Garden and purchase a cup of nectar (at your own expense) to feed these playful and colorful birds. Shop at the gift boutique or relax at the Shark Bar for a snack (at your own expense).
A storage box is available for your belongings during your time underwater. Minimum age is 8 years. Minimum weight is 80 lbs. Wear your swimsuit under your clothing; bring a towel, reef-safe/biodegradable sunscreen, a cover-up for further protection from the sun, and a hat. Guests who are pregnant or have a heart condition are not allowed to participate. Waiver must be signed and medical conditions disclosed.
