This master plan draws inspiration from the many aspects of the personality of the mighty sea.

Just as the seas of our blue planet have many moods – from peaceful shallows to mysterious depths to powerful high seas – so do we envision that the “seas” of the Dive Lagoon will enable guests to experience these many aspects for themselves, at whatever level they choose.

Dive experiences of all levels of skill and comfort are waiting to immerse guests in the wonders of these rich, blue waters, including scuba diving, Snuba, Bob scooters, snorkeling and a thrilling shark dive cage and submarine-style ride.
