4th Annual Underwater Easter Egg Hunt
Warm Caribbean tropical waters are calling swimmers and snorkelers of all ages to get Out and About in a different way this Easter! In Support of St. Maarten Nature Foundation Youth Education Programs, The Scuba Shop will hold the 4th Annual Underwater Easter Egg Hunt on Monday, April 17, at Divi Little Bay Beach Resort. That’s right! An Underwater Easter Egg Hunt!
How? you might ask. More than 1,000 boiled and coloured eggs are “laid” in the water in front of Divi Little Bay Beach Resort. Using masks and snorkel or swim goggles, participants search for the eggs and dive down underwater to retrieve them. Eggs are then exchanged for raffle tickets.
The idea is not only to find the eggs, but to be challenged in diving down to get them. This is an event for “kids” of all ages wanting to test how deep they can dive and win great prizes for their efforts. The more eggs you get, the more chances you have to win. So as eggs are exchanged for raffle tickets, they will be recycled back into the water until the time is up. Extra raffle tickets will also be on sale allowing spectators to join the event and for participants to increase their chances of winning some fabulous prizes.
Besides having lots of fun, this is a fundraising event for Sint Maarten Nature Foundation. In a continued effort to stress the important role the youth play in the future of nature conservation on this island, Nature Foundation established the Snorkel Club program with the aim of educating Sint Maarten youth in snorkelling skills and marine conservation. With more funding, Nature Foundation will be able to expand their Youth Education Programs.
This is really a great morning on the beach at Divi – and as you are already out and about, the hotel invites you to stay and make a day of it with beach chair and umbrella specials to relax and enjoy the facilities after the event.
