Join us for the 11th Annual Southeast Florida Reef Cleanup!
For over a decade, we have teamed up with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to host a Reef Cleanup for our most beloved dive sites.
Hop aboard this year and help keep our oceans and reefs clean.
As divers, we believe in the saying “take only memories, leave only bubbles”. Well, if you find harmful marine debris underwater, we think you should take that too! Removing trash from the reef is a great way to give back to the underwater world.
Be part of the 11th Annual Southeast Florida Reef Cleanup. Preserve and protect the underwater world. Meet other ocean enthusiasts who share a love for taking action to maintain our environment.
11th ANNUAL SOUTHEAST FLORIDA REEF CLEANUP
Something as small as a fishing line can be quite harmful to the reef. Be a force for change by helping us remove debris like fishing lines, plastic bags, soda cans, and more from the reef.
Hop aboard a 2-tank dive charter on Sunday, August 28th. Cleanup supplies, including mesh bags and Sea Snips, will be provided. Make sure to bring gloves and a cutting tool. These items can keep you safe while removing debris.
Surface-side, learn how to sort and record marine debris data with a representative from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP).
The FDEP has been coordinating cleanups for years. Read more about their Coral Reef Conservation program here. Join us to be part of the reef cleanup effort this year!
