KEY LARGO (CBS4) – If it’s Easter and you’re in Key Largo, there’s only one way to do your traditional egg hunt.


About 80 Easter egg-seeking adults and children participated in an Underwater Easter Egg Hunt Sunday in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary off Key Largo.

Spencer Slate, owner of Key Largo’s Atlantis Dive Center, donned a bunny suit and scuba gear to hide colored, hard-boiled eggs for divers to locate.

About 160 eggs were positioned in the eel grass near Grecian Rocks, a popular Key Largo snorkeling site, including two golden eggs that finders exchanged above water for traditional Easter baskets.

Real eggs and nontoxic colorings were used to avoid negative environmental impact to the marine ecosystem.
