Dive site clean-up


Quiet day at the dive centre, so me and two Divemasters set off for "Barco Antiquo."   300 year old wreck of a French merchant ship laying in about 6 to 7 meters - and only about 150 meters from the beach. Problem is that as it lays on sand it seems to be a magnet for all the tourist rubbish thats either swept of the beach or thrown overboard from passing small boats.

Spent just under an hour there - and collect about 15 kgs of the normal plastic bottles etc. Site is back to its 300 year old pristine condition ...!!!
