Underwater Treasure Hunt
Our biggest event of the year! Divers search for 'treasure' and win great prizes like roundtrip tickets on United Airlines, hotels stays and dive tours throughout Palau, Micronesia, and the Philippines, and of course.. lots and lots of dive and snorkel gear! Nearly as popular as the main diving event itself, treasure hunters can also participate in a raffle to win even more prizes - 100% of raffle proceeds go to support Project Aware. Goodie bags and free Annual Treasure Hunt event tshirts ensure that everyone goes home a winner.
Beach & UW Cleanups
In addition to participating in the annual International Coastal Cleanup MDA also hosts several cleanup dives throughout the year.
Interested in planning your own beach or underwater cleanup? MDA can assist! Contact us at [email protected] for details.
Underwater Pumpkin Carving Contest
Try something new this year & carve your Halloween pumpkin underwater! Prizes awarded for creativity in two categories - Most Original & Sea Life! Bring a pumpkin and safe cutting tools (knife with a sheath & small pumpkin carving tool). Be sure to bring enough weight to keep yourself and your pumpkin underwater. Remember - pumpkins float!
Get a photo with Scuba Santa!
Need an annual Christmas card photo? Look no further. Once a year in early December, MDA's very own Scuba Santa waits beside a very special Christmas tree (about 60ft underwater) for good little scuba-certified boys and girls to find him and have their photo taken. Check out photos from previous Christmases in our photo gallery.
