“This is a one-of-a-kind experience here in South Florida. If you can walk and breathe then you can Sea Trek.”
 MIAMI, USA /PRNewswire/ — To be unveiled at Miami Seaquarium on November 23, 2011, the Sea Trek Reef Encounter is a helmet diving experience that allows guests to become one with the park’s reef aquarium, while moving in ethereal slow motion in a near zero gravity diving system. Sea Trekking, developed by Sub Sea Systems, Inc. can be experienced by non-divers, ages 10 and above – no certification or swimming skills are necessary. In the Reef Aquarium at Miami Seaquarium participants may Sea Trek as deep as 15 feet under the sea.

“An experience once only reserved for the scuba diver, the Sea Trek Reef Encounter will allow our guests to get up close with the vast assortment of tropical fish and Marine Life species in the park’s 300,000 gallon Reef Aquarium,” commented Andrew Hertz, General Manager at Miami Seaquarium. “This is a one-of-a-kind experience here in South Florida. If you can walk and breathe then you can Sea Trek.”

The Sea Trek Helmet Diving System is controlled by a compressor system that takes in air, compresses it, sends it through a series of filtration components and on to a control console and manifold to regulate the air flow to participants. Unlike deep sea diving, the participant’s entire head stays dry throughout the entire experience.

The Sea Trek Reef Encounter at Miami Seaquarium is approximately one hour and a half including an orientation session and will cost $99 plus tax per participant. The program fee includes same day admission to the park. Discounts for the Sea Trek are available to participants in the park’s dolphin interaction programs. Miami Seaquarium is a family-oriented marine-life park open to the public 365 days a year. More information: www.miamiseaquarium.com
