Perhaps one of the most exciting diving events of the year happens during October: the International Scuba underwater pumpkin carving contest and chili cook-off! Never carved a pumpkin underwater before? No worries, we’ve got a class for that!
The Underwater Pumpkin Carver specialty course is open to all divers with a (junior) Open Water Diver card or higher certification. There is no confined water training requirement for this specialty so you can schedule to meet us directly out at the lake where you will complete two training dives. You will learn skills such as proper weighting for the pumpkin, how to maintain buddy contact while executing a task (the carving), and safe use of underwater tools/knives.
Pumpkin Carving dives are scheduled during our Halloween events weekend each year (stay up to date with our newsletter and Facebook page to find out when that is). Your course fee includes your open water instruction and certification card. Rental gear, dive site fees, knives, and pumpkins are not included in the course price.
