It comes as no surprise that the dive shows are very popular for families visiting the Gatlinburg attraction. Every hour, divers can be seen at different tanks in the aquarium.

When families watch the Shark Lagoon Dive, they will experience divers interacting in the largest exhibit at the aquarium. There is a Penguin Feeding dive that shows families the feeding process of the penguins in the exhibit! A favorite is the Coral Reef Dive because of the colorful fish that swim throughout the tank. Lastly, the Stingray Bay Dive is perfect for families that want to see stingrays being fed from the hands of the divers!
