Play underwater darts at Central Coast Dive Center, and help us raise money for early detection and a college scholarship!
It’s simple – you participate in the tournament, and you ask friends and family to sponsor you! Bring the donation pledges with you when you come in to play darts, and Central Coast Dive Center will donate to the fight against breast cancer. Our Bosom Buddies Underwater Dart Tournament is a fun way to meet new divers and support a great cause at the same time!

Raising Money To Fight Breast Cancer
The Annual Bosom Buddies Underwater Dart Tournament was established by owner Tommy Evans as a fun way for scuba divers to help raise money to fight breast cancer. Tommy started Bosom Buddies after a member of his family, Pam, suffered from this disease – and since 2000, Bosom Buddies has raised over $300,000!
There’s no limit to how much you can help Central Coast Dive Center fight breast cancer. Just ask your friends and family to pledge to support you as a tournament participant! It’s simple – pick up a pledge form at Central Coast Dive Center. Ask friends and family to pledge for you, fill out the form, and collect their pledges/donations. Bring in your donations and your form when you come to compete!
How To Play Underwater Darts
In the underwater darts tournament, you’ll wear scuba gear to descend to the bottom of our heated indoor pool. We have 2 large square “dartboards” (targets) suspended in the water, and you’ll throw “darts” (actually small underwater torpedo-shaped toys) at the dartboard. The rules are similar to above-water darts – your goal is to get as many of your darts through the center of the target as possible!
Don’t know how to scuba dive? No problem! Just come to one of our pre-tournament Discover Scuba Experiences, and we’ll show you everything you need to know to play in the tournament. You’ll be escorted to the bottom of the pool with a certified professional… and we’ll even share our secret dart-throwing techniques with you! Just call (859) 426-0020 and ask about the Bosom Buddies Discover Scuba!
Playing In The Tournament
The tournament has several time slots over the course of the weekend, so you can pick the day and time that works best for you! Just sign up for a day & time slot by calling us at (859) 426-0020, and come to Central Coast Dive Center ready to dive during your time slot.
All tournament participants will be placed in brackets during their time slots, and the winners from each bracket will play each other until we have our bracket winner for that day and time slot. On the last day of the tournament, all of the winners from all of the brackets will compete to become this year’s overall tournament winner!

We hope you join us on October 5th and 6th!
We’d like to thank our Tournament Sponsors for donating prizes and auction items to help Central Coast Dive Center fight breast cancer!
