My wife and I decided to spend our 17th wedding anniversary doing the Treasure Hunt dives at the mine. The event was outstanding. Considering the 120+ divers, the staff and volunteers did an exceptional job keeping the event moving along and at the end of the day, I believe the event was still on time.

The treasure dives themselves are allot of fun - a free-for-all trying to find as many chips as possible within the time limits. The water was a clear and balmy 58F (here is a hint for future divers - brave the cold and go without gloves as it is much faster to pick up chips). The bottom got stirred up a little during the hunt, but not bad.  In the end, my wife won a trip to Utopia Village in Utila Honduras. Based on Internet research, it looks like the trip will really be great. We are already looking forward to next year's treasure dive.
Thanks for a great experience,

Greg and Brandy Anderson
