SCUBA DIVING

Are you SCUBA certified and interested in helping maintain our Sea Lion Exhibit?

The Aquarium of Niagara's volunteer dive program is designed to assist the marine mammal trainers with the upkeep and maintenance of the 100,000 gallon saltwater show pool. It is important to note that under no circumstances will the animals be in the water with divers at any time. The program is designed with flexibility in mind, and allows divers to call or email to schedule their next dive time.


Please note the following:
This is not an animal interaction program; the animals will not be in the water with you at any time
Divers will enjoy free aquarium membership as well as a discount at the Aquarium's gift shop
Participation on the Aquarium’s dive team is a volunteer position, and no monetary compensation will be provided

REQUIREMENTS

Divers must be certified through an accredited diving agency (PADI, NAUI, YMCA)
Divers must be at least eighteen (18) years of age
Participants must posses a valid driver’s license, passport or valid form of photo identification
Divers must be flexible as animal behavior can sometimes be unpredictable
Divers must provide their own dive gear and tank fills. The water is approximately 64 degrees, so a 3mm wetsuit at the very least is strongly recommended
Divers must meet a minimum requirement of one dive per month in order to stay active in the program
Application


If you or someone you know is interested in joining our SCUBA team, contact Michael McCarthy at (716) 285-3575 ext. 214.
