Take Action Against Marine Debris
We Invite You to Dive or Snorkel in a Marine Debris Clean Up Trip we Host Twice a Month Dedicated to Removing Harmful Trash from Our Coral Reefs.
Ready to get your hands dirty and make an actual difference? Our oceans are littered with trash that is killing coral, fish and destroying Eco Systems. This is your chance to help out.
We host multiple trips every month dedicated to removing harmful debris and would love for you to join us. In exchange for your help we include all the necessary gear to remove debris safely for free. Want professional pictures of your excursion at no cost? Along with our staff we always have a professional photographer in the water to document collected debris and the people who helped out.
We are Devoted to Saving our Oceans
We are the First Dive Shop in the World to Receive Funding from Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation to Remove and Document Marine Debris through the Goal: Clean Seas Florida Keys initiative.
Let's Talk Trash
How Marine Debris Removal Trips are Conducted
Preparation & Briefing
Meet at The Dive Shop for short presentation about what debris we are looking for and how to safely remove it. We will provide bags, gloves and cutting tools.
Debris Removal Trip
Anyone can participate! We need divers to collect the gear, snorkelers to transfer it back to the boat and passengers on board to lift and organize debris. This is a 2 tank dive trip lasting 3 hours.
Reporting & Disposal
It is extremely important that we separate and weigh everything collected to report our data to the Florida Keys Marine Sanctuary. Our data goes to a global data base allowing to help us understand and hopefully correct the problem with trash killing our reefs.
