June 8th, 1400 hours: Eco Tribe and the Grand Rotana Camel Dive Club team perform Operation World Ocean Day.  Armed with knives, lift bags and household gloves, the enemy - Underwater Debris - didn't stand a chance!

 

As we stealthily approached the battlefield at Eagle Ray Bay, we could smell fear in the water column.  We were prepared to take the litter dead or alive and had vegetable bag traps at the ready. Thankfully the fishing line had taken no prisoners but still, there was to be no mercy here today.

So during the month of May, Amarilla Divers and their divers collected as m uch rubbish as they could get from every site we dived. This ended up being lots of dives and lots of rubbish!!

We found many different types of rubbish although the majority was cans & bottles, we did come across a few things that were rather strange!!

We actually found on one dive an electric chain saw! we did not have a lift bag and was unable to bring it back, but we will definitely be back to thi ssite with the bag to bring it ashore.

Removed so many golf balls, just had to laugh...also a pedalo, which was great fun when we did the Search & Recovery as you could not see more than one foot in front of you with all the sand we had disturbed. Lots of bricks from buildings, but due to the postion of the dock when the strong winds blow it seems to move all the debris away. Shall find the next location to clean up and let you all know. It was truly a fun filled time and everyone enjoyed themselves, many thanks to Sean Weaver and Grant MacKellar my DMT's and keen Search & Recovery specialists.

Now that the weather has started to shift on the Andaman Sea side of Thailand, Ocean Divers are getting back into our regular beach cleanups. The beaches are quite clean during the high season due to the off shore wind, but as the Southeast Monsoon weather cycle begins the wind and waves shift. This in turn brings the floating marine debris onto our beaches.

Wow, what a fantastic night dive.  Not the best conditions, the weather was unpredictable and the sea very cold, but the faithful few just turned up and we all had a great dive, with the resident cuttle fish and rays showing off in the spotlight.

 

We would particularly like to thank Dave Craze for contributing his donation even though he was not well enough to participate in the dive.
