    Join us underwater to celebrate International Coastal Cleanup Day! We will be heading offshore to 2 sites on Florida's Coral Reef to scuba dive and remove marine debris. We will also collect marine debris data to submit to PADI Project AWARE and the Ocean Conservancy for future use by educators, researchers, and policy-makers. You must have your open-water diver certification and a minimum of 10 logged dives in order to participate.

    Debris Free Oceans will provide gloves, dive shears, and mesh bags. The $60 reservation comes with tanks and weights from Diver's Paradise, and additional scuba gear is available for rent from the dive shop. Please note that this is not a guided dive- if you would like a dive professional to lead you or your group, indicate this when you register for the trip. If you have any outstanding questions, feel free to email [email protected].

    About International Coastal Cleanup:


    Scientists estimate that more than 17 billion pounds of plastic enters our ocean every year threatening marine life from corals polyps to sharks, the health of people, and local economies. Over the past 36 years, Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup has brought together nearly 13 million people from over 150 countries to collect nearly 250 million pounds of trash along our coastlines and waterways. Every year during Ocean Conservancy’s
    International Coastal Cleanup, volunteers comb lakes, rivers and beaches around the world for trash picking up everything imaginable along the world’s shorelines: cigarette butts, food wrappers, abandoned fishing gear and even automobiles and kitchen appliances.
    By volunteering at ICC, you will be actively participating in a global citizen science project, not only by removing marine debris, but by also cataloguing and tallying what you find using the Ocean Conservancy’s data collection cards or Clean Swell app. The resulting item-by-item, location-by-location Ocean Trash Index that Ocean Conservancy compiles each year provides the only global snapshot of the marine debris littering coasts and waterways around the world.
