BUEI Underwater Extravaganza

On Saturday, April 22nd, Earth Day, the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute (BUEI) held its 4th Annual ‘Underwater Extravaganza’ and 20th Anniversary Celebrations under the distinguished patronage of HE The Governor.

The evening kicked off with cocktails in the main lobby and included a grind-off competition between Team BDA, Artemis, Land Rover BAR and Team Japan. It was a tough contest with Artemis and Land Rover BAR tying for first place! Following the grind-off we presented a dazzling laser hula-hoop performance by Ishrat Yakub, courtesy of Rockfire Productions. Guests then made their way down to dinner for a gourmet sit-down meal by the Harbourfront, followed by dancing to The Big Chill and an entertaining Live Auction ably officiated by Bruce Barritt.

Della Valle Sandals was on site with a pop-up boutique creating custom handmade sandals with part proceeds donated to BUEI’s education programmes.

BUEI is extremely grateful to all of its sponsors and donors especially our main sponsors: Axis, BELCO, Harbourfront Restaurant, MS Amlin, The Waterfront Group and XL Catlin.
