Join us for our monthly Dive Against Debris! We started this tradition Sep. 2018 during Project Aware month. We offer the Dive Against Debris specialty at the event for cost of certification processing and a donation to Project Aware for the PA cert card ($40 total). Donations to Project Aware or the locally based nonprofit Algalita are accepted and appreciated as well. The Dive Against Debris specialty counts toward both your Advanced and Master Scuba Diver certifications! Training or proof of training is mandatory and provided for free. Certification card is optional but highly recommended to show proof of training to other events.
We will be discussing methods of maintaining buddy contact throughout the dive, safe methods of removing marine debris, when to leave debris behind, when to take it, what materials are more important than others to remove. We will be discussing the issue of marine life on the debris to be removed as well.
After the dive, we will sort through the debris and categorize it to report it into Project Aware.
All learning materials will be emailed to the participants before event.
Not a diver? Thats okay! Come on out and clean up the beach while we clean up the ocean. Both are important!
Jade SCUBA Adventures will provide mesh bags for the dive and have some available for sale if you need one.
