Underwater Pumpkin Carving Event / Contest

Saturday, 10/25/14, 2:00pm at Blue Lagoon

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 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). AND,  DO the night dive Saturday night to see 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.  Or maybe you have a friend that wants to get certified??  This really is a great time to dive in!  The water is warm and conditions are great.  Plus, this weekend we will be conducting classes around all the other fun activities so you can make the most of your weekend at Blue Lagoon.  If you have a friend that wants to get certified, call the shop now to sign up and get details.  Classroom & Pool will happen prior to this event on 10/25, but the final open water dives will happen at the event!  We will also be offering Advanced Open Water (except Deep), and speciality courses like Night, Wreck, Search & Recovery, Peak Performance Buoyancy, and Navigation - ALL THAT WEEKEND.  If you are interested in any PADI continuing education classes, contact the dive shop at (281) 445-3483(DIVE) for details, including costs and necessary books.  Be sure to schedule ahead of time to help us plan dive schedules appropriately. 

** You will need to pay Blue Lagoon park entrance fee upon arrival.  Blue Lagoon does not allow dogs, canoes, or boats.  Gates open 8am on Saturday morning (Blue Lagoon not open Fri). 

** If you would like us to provide your pumpkin, send email to mathis@marlindiveteam.com before 10/25/14 and we’ll make this super easy for you.  Bring $10 to Blue Lagoon to pay for pumpkin.
