A group of scuba divers submerged 30 feet beneath the surface today to complete in an underwater costume contest in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary off Key Largo.
Entrants included a mermaid man, a penguin and movie favorites such as Batman, a Teenage Mutant Ninja turtle and Star Wars Storm Troopers, a hot dog, and cheeseburger buddy pair dived with ketch up and mustard condiments.
The contest’s host, Rainbow Reef Dive Center, is offering social media users a chance to vote for their favorite costumed driver on their Instagram Page.
Top three vote getters are to be announced Thursday and are to be rewarded with prizes of dive equipment and dive trips.
The Halloween Contest was staged near a shallow reef about 5 miles off Key Largo.
