41st Annual Treasure Hunt

October 3, 2020 | 9:00 am - 8:00 pm

Discovery Diving will be hosting its 41st 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 3rd , 2020. 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 gathering of divers and like-minded people in North Carolina.

Sign ups have already begun and will continue until the day of the event, so call the shop to get on the list! Happy Hunting!

Crystal Coast Highland Games

October 31, 2020 | 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Eastern North Carolina has had many influences that have shaped the culture that we all enjoy. Among those is immigration of people from the island and Highlands of Scotland, with many of the current inhabitants and place names being of that Scottish heritage.  The gathering of groups of families in Scotland have been an important feature of Scottish culture, in the past as well as today. With the inclusion of competitions in dance, athletics and music these gatherings became known as Highland Games. Gathering of people of all origins is encouraged at Highland games that occur in North Carolina and across North America , with millions of people attending each year.  The skirl of bagpipes and the wearing of tartan and kilts along with the excitement of tossing the caber draw people back again and again. Admission fee. For more details, find us on Facebook.
