Aquarium Divers

This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

While there are no waves or currents in the large exhibition tanks at the Oregon Coast Aquarium, it’s still a challenging environment in which to dive. Professionals and a team of volunteers fend off sharks, eels and a giant Pacific octopus as they clean and maintain the underwater environment, and during visiting hours, they even become part of the exhibit.

First Broadcast: 2004
