About The Event
We will meet at the dive shop at 12 pm to fill out paperwork and get gear together. We will then head to the boat for a safe-handling workshop by Debris Free Oceans, and learn about how to safely remove debris from the reef. We will then go dive at 2 different sites along the Florida Reef Tract while picking up any debris that is safe to remove.
On our way back to shore, we will collect data about our debris findings to submit to Project AWARE Foundation and Southeast Florida Action Network. This data will be used by researchers to better understand the distribution and transport of marine debris, and will ultimately be used to inform policy-makers and guide site selection for future cleanups.
Come help clean our beautiful ocean post-Irma and contribute to marine debris research! Call us at 305-531-6110 to make your reservation or book online using the link provided and save 5%!
