underwater easter egg hunt

It’s that time of year again. The Dillos open our outdoor diving season with our annual Underwater Easter Egg Hunt. Eggs will be suspended from the bottom, so they’ll be easy to see. We’ll be at (Tyler State Park), which is close enough for those who want to day-trip it.

Park entrance fee is $6 per adult and free for kids up to 12 years old. MUST SHOW C-CARD IF YOU DIVE!

Meal and hunt are FREE to paid Dillo members and $5 for everyone else.
Day-Use Picnic area south of the swimming area. Look for the famous Scubadillo yellow banner.
11:30ish – Lunch at the “Day Use” Picnic area south of the swimming area. We will have water and grilled hamburgers and hot dogs. Bring a side dish to share.

To avoid eight containers of potato salad (lol), please use this April 15 – easter egg hunt food signup sheet and let us know what you’re bringing.

1 p.m. – Staging at the swimming area
2 p.m. – The hunt is on!!!
A lot of nice prizes for participants!
The dive
We should have 6- to 10-foot visibility. Eggs will be floating on a string at about 8-15 feet, 5-mil wet suit or thicker. Depends on how hardy you are. Bottom time is about 30 minutes.
How to get there
Tyler State Park is located approximately 90 miles east of Dallas on I-20. Take exit 562 toward FM 14/Hawkins/Tyler and turn left on FM 14 (State Park Highway). The park is two miles north of Tyler. Turn left on Park Road 16 to the park’s entrance. Continue on Park Road 16, keep left to stay on the south side of the lake until you reach the Day-Use Picnic area and see our big yellow Scubadillo banner.
Fins up!
