The Hunt is on!  Beginning Saturday, February 22nd thru Wednesday, March 19th 2014, Pura Vida Divers is hosting an Underwater Scavenger Hunt and Photo Contest.

Underwater Scavenger Hunt Rules and Prizes:

Weather you are a scuba diver or snorkeler, everyone is welcome to join.  All photos must be taken in the Palm Beach – Jupiter area between February 22nd and March 19th 2014, have a date stamp, and be submitted via drop box file or usb stick on or before Wednesday, March 19th 2014 at 6:00pm.

A point will be given for each photo taken of a creature from the “Hunt List”. Bonus points are available!  The photographer with the most points will be our winner. We will announce the scavenger hunt winner during our March Social Night on Friday, March 21st, and will receive THREE GREAT PRIZES!  Prizes include: A Silver Hero 3+ GoPro, a 2-tank boat pass for Sirena, and a cash prize (the cash prize will be based upon the number of contest entries).

Photo Contest Rules and Prize:

In addition to the scavenger hunt findings, we ask that each photographer identify and submit their favorite image for the photo contest portion of this event. Guests who attend the March Social Night will select the top five fan photos.

The top five fan photos will be posted to Facebook Saturday morning at 8am for a vote.  The photo with the most votes as of Sunday, March 23rd at midnight will be our winning photo and will become our Facebook cover photo for the remainder of March.  The photographer of the winning image will receive a FREE 2-tank boat pass for Sirena.

Cost for entry is $55 per person and is due upon sign up. We look forward to seeing all of your wonderful images, and can’t wait to see what you find in “our” backyard.

If you need help locating or identifying creatures from the “Hunt List”, please contact Pura Vida Divers.  We have Private Dive Guides available for Blue Heron Bridge and Ocean diving.  Our staff is a wealth of fishy knowledge and many are active REEF Fish Counters.

Don’t forget about our REEF Fish Count Dives on Sunday afternoons.  Andrea is happy to help you find and identify the creatures on the “Hunt List”.

We are also offering the PADI Project AWARE Fish Identification Specialty Course as the March PADI Specialty of the Month.  For more information on this course and our FREE gift with class purchase, please visit:
