Safari Hunt 2019!!
Saturday, May 4th Wrightsville Beach, NC

Signup deadline is Wednesday, May 1st 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 called matches one of your tokens, you come up to draw a prize from the hat.  At the end of calling out all the token numbers, divers 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).

Entry is $20.00, non-refundable, (includes event, hotdog lunch, and t-shirt) up to 7PM May 1st.  If you’re a non-diver and/or someone who just wants to join us for lunch, the lunch ticket is $5 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 2019 dive season.
