Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue volunteers are offering raffle tickets with a prize of a two-hour dive for two in the Stingray sub operated by Aquatica Submarines. The underwater experience isvalued at $5,000.
The three-person sub is certified to 500 feet deep and can spend several hours exploring below the surface. Your dive can take place in the Vancouver area or near Nanaimo – your choice. The Howe Sound dive includes amazing glass sponge reefs by Eagle Harbour and Passage Island. Near Nanaimo the dive will take you to the Annapolis warship artificial reef in Halkett bay. You will see amazing sights and marine life from a comfortable and climate controlled submarine cabin.
Tickets are $5 each and available from your local RCM-SAR volunteers. The prize draw will take place December 14, 2016.
Proceeds support the British Columbia Search and Rescue Volunteer Memorial to the men and women who lost their lives in the line of volunteer duty on sea, land, and air. It will be erected on the grounds of the Legislative Buildings near existing memorials to B.C.’s police, firefighters and ambulance personnel.
Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue is a volunteer-based registered charity. Our 1,100 members operate 35 marine rescue stations in British Columbia responding to more than 800 emergencies each year. We save lives on the water.
