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.

To receive pictures from your marine debris clean up trip please fill out  & submit the form below.

Photos from these trips are the most important tool we have to spread awareness and to get others involved so we would also love to have any pictures you took during your marine debris clean up.  You can share your photos via email by clicking on the info@thediveshoporc.com link provided below. Thank You for all your support!

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.
