Underwater Pumpkin Carving Contest
Don’t Miss This! The weather is cooling off, diving conditions are great, and it’s time to celebrate Fall with our Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest and Campout at Blue Lagoon. Activities include diving, camping, swimming, games, fun around the campfire (including s’mores!), and of course UNDERWATER PUMPKIN CARVING!
Bring your own pumpkin, carving tools, decorative ideas, your camping gear, food/drinks, and dive gear. Carving must take place at Blue Lagoon (no pre-carving before you arrive). Don’t miss the night dive Saturday night to judge all the Carved Pumpkins displayed underwater!!!
In addition to the pumpkin carving contest, this will be a great opportunity to work on your your continued education. We will be offering Advanced Open Water (except Deep), and speciality courses like Night, Wreck, Search & Recovery, Peak Performance Buoyancy, and Navigation.

Be sure to schedule ahead of time to help us plan dive schedules appropriately.
