“Easter Bunny” phases an underwater egg hunt off the Florida Keys – NBC 6 South Florida
Dozens of underwater egg-eaters dived a shallow reef off Islamorada at the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary Thursday during an underwater egg hunt, which serves as a fundraiser to serve Keys year-round children in need.
The underwater hide and seek game is offered to participating divers during the Easter break and is a favorite of Captain Spencer Slate, the operator of Captain Slates Scuba Adventures.
