KEY LARGO, Florida Keys --
Instead of bright flower gardens and green grass, the Easter egg hunt off Key Largo is to be staged near coral heads teaming with colorful tropical fish or a bed of sea grass in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. After all, when the Easter bunny is a scuba-diving gentle giant nearly seven feet tall (including ears), he can hide eggs anywhere he wants to -- as long as it's underwater.

Captain Spencer Slate of Atlantis Dive Center, mile marker 106.5 oceanside in Key Largo, is to host the annual Underwater Easter Egg Hunt in the warm, clear waters off Key Largo on Sunday, March 23.

The fundraiser for Kids In Special Situations, which provides gifts and holiday cheer to the area's needy children, is to launch from the Atlantis dock at 8:30 a.m.

Divers seeking underwater eggs are to check in at 8 a.m. at the Atlantis dive shop. There is no charge to participate in the hunt, and the dive charter fee is to be discounted to $60 per person.

Once divers are aboard, the Atlantis boat will head out to a secret location on one of the Keys' pristine reefs. The scuba-equipped Easter bunny, bearing an uncanny resemblance to Captain Slate himself, is to submerge to hide his eggs, followed soon after by the egg-hunting divers.

All Easter egg hunters are to win prizes, with a dive trip for two awarded to the diver who finds a specially colored egg. Real eggs and non-toxic colorings are used to prevent any negative ecological impact.

For more information and reservations (recommended), contact Captain Slate's Atlantis Dive Center toll-free at (800) 331-3483 or locally at (305) 451-3020.
