Our 30th Anniversary. Safari Hunt 2018!!
Saturday, May 5th Wrightsville Beach, NC

Signup deadline is Wednesday, May 2nd 7PM.

The Safari Hunt is like an underwater Easter egg hunt on a shipwreck.

At 9:00am, we blow a horn at the Liberty Ship off Wrightsville Beach, NC.  Divers hit the water to search for numbered tokens that are hidden on the 400′ wreck. Each diver is allowed a maximum of 3 tokens.On average we have 90-120 people signup for this exciting event.  After the dive, everyone gathers under the big tent at the dive shop for the prize give-a-way.  Everyone who participates gets a Safari Hunt T-shirt.  Then, we begin to call out numbers.  When the number is  called that matches one of your tokens, you come up and draw a prize from the hat.  At the end of calling out all the token numbers,people who didn’t get a token put their names in a hat to draw the remaining prizes. Around 120 tokens will be hidden and over $4000.00 in prizes will be given away, usually including a Regulator, BC, Dive Computer, Riffe and AB Biller Spear guns, and tons more (prizes are dependent on what our generous vendors give us).

After we give out all the prizes, it’s time for lunch. Your Safari Hunt entry includes a catered banquet and a chance to win one of four “dive-the-month-for-free” prizes.

Entry is $25.00, non-refundable, (includes event, t-shirt, and banquet) up to 7PM May 2nd.  If you’re a non-diver and/or someone who just wants to join us for lunch, the banquet ticket is $15 and can be purchased by calling or stopping by the dive shop.  Prior registration is required to join the entire event or lunch.

Please sign-up by calling or stopping by the dive shop.

Great fun is had by all, and we look forward to kicking off the 2018 dive season.
