42nd Annual Underwater Treasure Hunt

Press Release

Discovery Diving will be hosting its 42nd Annual Underwater Treasure Hunt which helps raise money for the Diver’s Alert Network (DAN) and the Mile of Hope Children’s Cancer Event on October 9th, 2021.

This event is a true ‘treasure hunt’ where divers get to scuba dive off the rock jetty at Radio Island in Beaufort, NC. They seek treasure in the form of numbered oyster shells.

After numbered oyster shells have been found and collected, we then return to the dive shop for a pig pickin’ feast and the drawing for prizes. It’s all very exciting and makes for a really fun day! This event is one of the largest single-day gatherings of divers and like-minded people in North Carolina.

Last year we had 220 enthusiastic divers participate and a great time was had by all!  Our Annual Treasure Hunt turned out to be a true treasure with prizes given away from around the world. In 2019, businesses such as travel agencies, resorts, manufacturers and local businesses donated more than $45,000.00 in prizes and fun promotional items. Our staff and participants were beyond thrilled!

We are very excited about our upcoming event and hope that your organization will be able to help us in making this year’s even better. Our prizes are all wonderful donations, tax-deductible, from businesses such as yours, and we are very grateful for all the generous support.

We pretty much accept anything, whether it’s promotional items, gift certificates, merchandise, hotel stays, dive trips, or offers such as "two for the price of one".

Anything would be greatly appreciated! If you are able to contribute, please let us know by email: dive@discoverydiving.com. or call 252-728-2265.
