Description

    SCUBA Dive or Snorkel with Charlie Duke in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The winning bidder of this Astronaut Experience, benefiting the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation, will join Apollo 16 Moonwalker Astronaut Charlie Duke on an undersea adventure! You and a guest will SCUBA dive or snorkel with Duke on a Blue Adventures dive boat off the beautiful coast of Cabo San Lucas. Together you will explore where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean and likely come in contact with Sea Lions, White Tip Reef sharks, Guitar Fish, Eagle Rays, Grouper, Puffer Fish, schools of Sturgeon, and more! Depending on the time of year, you may even get a glimpse of a whale!

    After a day of diving, you will join Duke for an authentic Mexican dinner where you can discuss the day's discoveries and his experience walking on the moon 36 years ago. At the end of the evening, you will bid farewell to your space hero and retire to your hotel for a good night's sleep (one night accommodation is included).
