UPDATE: The dive portion of the Safari Hunt event is cancelled due to 20 to 25 kt winds and seas 4 to 6 ft. We will still be having the fun portion at the Bridge Tender Marina 11AM where we’ll hand out the t-shirts, have some lunch, hang out with fellow divers and give away all the great prizes donated by our generous vendors. We’ll see everyone there.
